8 Famous People Who Married Their Cousin
Kevin Bacon – While filming “Finding Your Roots”, Kevin Bacon and his wife discovered an unpleasant surprise. They found out they were cousins. Kyra Sedgwick is not Kevin’s first cousin but the matter is still highly confusing! At least in public she took the news with humor but who knows what actually happens in a person’s mind when they find out that interests is not the only thing they share with their better half.
Saddam Hussein – The infamous dictator of Iraq leads quite a complicated personal life. He married his first cousin. His wife’s, Sajida Talfah Hussein’s, father was Saddam’s uncle. Close family relations didn’t stop Saddam and his wife from having five children. We must also mention that since polygamy is legal in Iraq, Saddam Hussein married two other woman during his lifetime.
