A seven pound baby was born to the youngest parents in Britain, according to various reports.
A 12-year-old girl and her 13-year-old boyfriend are reportedly now Britain’s youngest parents, and the girl’s father says although he was emotional when he found out, he is proud of his daughter.
“We only found out she was pregnant a month ago,” said the girl’s father, going by the name Greg, to LBC UK. “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.”
The girl’s father also says that his daughter’s 13-year-old boyfriend is a “lovely kid” and that he will be a great father. The preteens have reportedly been together for just over a year and are “totally in love.”
"We cannot keep her wrapped up her whole life,” said Greg. “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 just have to support them."
Reports also claim that the girl’s mother is only 27 and was herself a teenage mother. She is now, without a doubt, the youngest grandmother in the UK.
