Kinship report on Family Tree Maker

Wonder if anyone can help. I use Family tree maker - the basic version - and having just done a kinshipd report find that my mother is also supposed to be my 'Half seventh cousin once removed'!! I'd never heard of half cousins before....
Nevertheless, I presumed I had either made a mistake on my tree or that my father's family were related way back to my mother's. But my father is only down as my father and the husband of my 'Half seventh cousin once removed'.
I scrolled down to my own name and yes, it said self AND 'Half eighth cousin'!?!
Surely this cannot be right?
Does anyone have any ideas as to whether this could be correct or what I can do to discover what mistakes I have made?
