Stars Who Married Their Cousin

8 of 12

Charles Darwin

Charles Darwin wed his first cousin, English naturalist and scientist Emma Wedgewood, in 1839. The couple had 10 children together, three of whom died very young. Darwin publicly acknowledged his fear that some of his offspring may have inherited weaknesses from inbreeding due to the close family ties he shared with his wife.—XFINITY Entertainment Staff
