Crazy Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. theory of the day

Maybe she already found mom and pop?So my wife has a theory about Skye.  The whole reason Skye joined up with our intrepid group of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents is because she wants to find out what happen to her parents and she runs into documents redacted S.H.I.E.L.D. whenever she gets close.

So what if Skye’s real parents are Agent Phil Coulson and Agent Melinda May?  The people who she thinks were her parents were just the people who adopted her and they were killed by someone who knew of Skye’s real parentage?

The evidence is admittedly pretty circumstantial: 

May and Coulson obviously have a history together, possibly a sexual history based off of May’s seemingly flirtatious comments in The Girl In The Flower Dress

Coulson was awfully quick to recruit Skye in the Pilot.  Similarly, he was pretty insistent that May join the team.

Chloe Bennet, the actress who plays Skye, is half-Chinese and half-Jewish.

Personally, I am still not convinced of this theory.  I just wanted to get it on the record though.  If it turns out to be true I am declaring my wife a genius!

I think that perhaps Coulson is her biological father and May was just the one to drop her off at the orphanage. That being because of the most recent episode (midseason finale) where Coulson was talking about giving up "parent teacher conferences" and other parental duties. It is already said, however, that a female dropped Skye off at the orphanage so maybe it was May. That would be why they would both know so much about it and would cover up the doubts that Coulson and May would have a kid.
The other option of her being their child remains possible, however, though its a bit funny to think that Skye's mom is shagging her crush.

Yeah, I doubt they would go there although that would be hilarious.
