Brother and sister, or just friends?

“You know something very funny, Mamma”, started the five-year old.
I mentally prepared myself for a session that could be funny, illuminating, slightly pointless or all three. “Yes?”
“You know, Dev’s Papa and Mamma are actually brother and sister”, he said in a conspiratory whisper.
“Really, and how do you know?”, I asked genuinely curious.
“They share the same surname”, he announced triumphantly.

I was left speechless. As I so often am.

And this time, I did not even try to correct him. “Maybe they just happen to have the same surname”, I suggested.

He agreed that it was possible.
