12-Year-Old Gives Birth, Now the Youngest Mother in Britain
A girl in United Kingdom gave birth to a baby on Sunday. She was believed to be the youngest mother.
The girl who will be hidden by name Sumi, gave birth to a 7lb 4oz baby girl at the age of 12. She got pregnant by her 13-year-old boyfriend – who will be hidden by the name Tobie – is also believed to be the youngest father in Britain.
Tobie said he is a “proud father” while both of them agreed that they are “deeply in love.”
Sumi’s father said he will always be there for his daughter, but admitted that he broke down with emotions upon discovering that his daughter is already 4 weeks due. He only found out that his daughter will give birth last month.
“We only found out she was pregnant a month ago. That means she was eight months pregnant. The baby is going out into the world no matter what,” the man told LBC. “We didn’t know this was happening. unfortunately kids this age are going to grow up to have boyfriends and partners or whatever. If they do things behind their parents’ back that’s something we’re never going to be able to found out.”
He also described himself as a “proud granddad,” but used a false name to protect the identity of the girl. He also described Tobie as a “great kid”.
He also noted that he will never let this happened to his younger kids – ages nine and three – noting he will keep an eye to them.
“It won’t be happening again, what’s happened has happened because you give your children a bit of slack. So now we will be keeping an eye on people. Maybe we could of [sic] done more,” he said. “They made a mistake and that’s the thing we’ve got to deal with now and just be proud of what we’ve got.”
Tobie’s mother, who is a teenage mom herself also became the youngest grandmother at the age of 27.
Both parties agreed that the kids won’t be getting married.
