The mother of a daughter who allegedly had an incestuous relationship with her father, which lead to a love child is speaking out about the controversial relationship.
Steven Pladl, 42, of Knightdale, N. C., and Katie Pladl, 20, were arrested Jan. 27 and charged with adultery, and contributing to the delinquency. The arrests came after the couple reportedly got married. Their son was born in September.
Pladl and his wife, Alyssa, reportedly gave Katie up for adoption as a baby, but they are all united in 2016 after Katie traced her biological parents through social media.
Pladl and Alyssa separated in 2017.
“There are no words to describe the feeling of betrayal and disgust I am feeling,” Alyssa told The Daily Mail Tuesday. “I have 18 years to have a relationship with my daughter — and now he is completely destroyed.”
Alyssa told the outlet that she was particularly disturbed by the marriage between her daughter and ex-husband, especially because the ceremony was reportedly attended by both Steven Pladl the mother of Katie’s adoptive parents.
“From what I know that it is an official wedding, even if it was illegal,” said Alyssa. “They simply had no information about their father-daughter relationship. They were all there for an incestuous marriage and she is pregnant with his child. How could they possibly have to celebrate there is a mystery to me.”

Alyssa told The Daily Mail that she was tipped off about the relationship with thanks to journal entries written by a younger daughter.
“Katie is pregnant. Father says that they have the feeling that couples. They have a little bit too drunk that night? My father is a slut,” access allegedly read. “He is Satan. He is f**king SATAN. He will go to hell, but he is not the one on the tortured, he will be the one torturing people.”
When confronted with the journal entries that Steven allegedly did not deny the relationship or pregnancy.
After their arrest last month, the father has been let go on a $1 million bond, but his daughter is still on the Wake County Detention Center, pending a Feb. 28 extradition hearing.
“She is a breastfeeding mother. She has trouble emotionally and physically. But he used regardless of the financial resources that he can get his hands on for himself, not her,” Alyssa told The Daily Mail. “That should tell you everything you need to know about what kind of man and father he is. There is no way I ever with him around his daughters again. I think he should go to jail and pay for what he has done.”
