A woman has gone viral on TikTok after explaining the reason why her two children are, as she puts it, 'couslings' - meaning they are both siblings and first cousins.

In a series of videos, the woman named Rachel, from the US, claimed the father of her oldest child had been unfaithful, so she decided to sleep with his brother "for payback".

"I slept with his brother as payback and ended up pregnant… now my kids are couslings," she admits in one clip, that's been viewed over 1.4M times.

"Oooope, I love my babies though," she added in the caption.


In subsequent videos she reveals she is now raising both her kids as a single parent as neither dad is in the picture anymore.

"My kids are blessing no matter how they were created. I don’t regret my decision," the mum said.

Rachel also added that her children, aged four and two, don't know about their fathers yet, but she plans to tell them the truth when they are older.

"I plan to tell them once they hit the age when they start asking questions," she explained. "I want it to be when they are ready to learn and ready to know."

Her videos have received mixed reactions with some people shocked by the story.

"Oof welp - that's a story!" one person replied in the comments.

"I was today years old when I learned 'couslings' is a word lol," was another response, although some thanked her for using the term.

"As a 'cousling' myself reading this new term has made my whole week," one person said.

A few however called Rachel out for her 'revenge act'.

"I feel so bad for the kids cause that's gotta be embarrassing," was one response.

"Um why are you proud," another said.

While a third wrote: "My jaw hit the damn floor."

The mum did hit back at the 'haters' in another video writing: "To everyone who didn't like my post about my kids being couslings.... there's the door."
