Puzzle # 9A |lateral thinkingLogic | Difficulty level: bulbbulbbulb

Odd genealogy tree
   Raimundo has a nice son who has the paradoxical characteristic to be ALSO his uncle... Given that Raimundo is not a time-traveler, and that his son is neither the fruit of an incestuous conception, nor has he married his father’s aunt or mother... Then how did this strange genealogical mishmash come about?
