The only thing that matters is their genetic condition. They have been tested, are aware, and know they should avoid having children. That's all they need to know. It's up to them to continue the relation or not.

Sometimes what you don't know doesn't hurt you.
If I recall correctly, he didn't want to tell them, and tried not to, but they pushed for more information about the condition. It came out that the probability of them having it and not being related was very slim, after which the couple put two and two together.
