  • Nothing since he is not their blood unless SO is their father. If SO is their father SO's first cousin (you don't specify) then he would be your daughters first cousin once removed. Aunt and Uncle are your parents siblings.

  • Technically nothing since there is no blood relation. Call him what you want.

  • That's confusing. SOs dads brothers kid. Cousin right? So he is just a cousin to our kids?

  • No he is nothing at all

  • I'd just call them cousins and be done with it. The technicality wouldn't matter to me.

  • 2nd cousin is what we would call that in our family.

  • i always thought your cousin's kids are your second cousins.

  • I call that 2nd cousins (assuming your first child is your SO's - if she's not, they're nothing, maybe step-2nd-cousins).

  • They are second cousins.
