If the bottom part of your mouth is on the floor, it is completely understandable.
A 12 year old girl and a 13 year old teenage boy in the UK have welcomed a child together; a baby girl.
The bizarre story is even more dumbfounding because the father of the girl has stated that “No Shame in this, we’re just proud of her”.
Last weekend, the unidentified 12-year old mom gave birth. She was pregnant at 11 while in primary school.
Today, a man claiming to be the girl’s father called in during a live radio programme to declare his support. Daily Mail UK reports.
“We found out she was pregnant a month ago. That means she was eight months pregnant. The baby is going to come into the world no matter what.
You can just be supportive about it. The families on both sides are going to be very supportive about it. It is heartbreaking, but you can’t turn back time. You can only go forwards.
We don’t know where it happened. What you’re implying is that we knew they were having sexual intercourse in bedrooms. No. We cannot keep her wrapped up her whole life.” he said.
“The couple’s” story appears in the new issue of The Sun. Although their faces are blurred due to legal reasons (they’re minors), they are seen holding the child together.
The mother of the 12-year, was also a teenage mother. At 27, she is now one of the youngest grandmothers in Britain.
To show support, the girl’s father says “I can’t keep a watch on her 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You don’t know what has gone on and once the mistake has been made, you can only support them.”
The 12 year old girl has a 3-year old sister and a 9-year old brother.
Their combined ages make them the youngest recorded parents in Britain.
