Earlier this season, The Doctors welcomed attorney Anahita Sedaghatfar to weigh in on cousins Michael and Angie Lee, who at the time were expecting their first child, while also facing potential jail time due to Utah's incest law, which is a third-degree felony, punishable by 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
As far as possible genetic issues resulting from first cousins having a baby together, The Doctors noted that a Columbia University study found that genetic disorders occurred in 4 to 7 percent of babies from related couples, compared to 3 to 4 percent of non-related couples.
According to the couple's Facebook page, the cousins welcome a son, Eric Seth Lee, on May 16. During a checkup two weeks after the birth, the parents wrote, "Everything looks good." Earlier this month, the cousins celebrated their son's 3-month milestone.
