Britain has just got its youngest mother in history as a 12-year-old girl was reported to have given birth to a child.
The confession came from her father who spoke to a radio station. He said that he was proud of his daughter who gave birth to a child at the age of 12. A false name was used to protect the identity of the people concerned. The proud grandfather said that there was no shame but pride associated with the pregnancy of the schoolgirl.
The young mother's father said that she was his "little daughter." The Independent reported. It does not matter whether she got pregnant or not, he is still proud of her; he said. He said that children at that age tend to go astray. Some of them get indulged in destructive things like drugs. His daughter, on the other hand, "brought something beautiful into the world." He continued to say that the family was "all proud of her."
The father said that the family had come to know about his daughter's pregnancy only a month ago. He said that he broke into tears after he had heard the news. She was already pregnant for eight months before the news broke to her family. The father said that the baby was about to see the world "no matter what." He said that the family could only be supportive about it. Both the families were supportive of the pregnancy, he said.
The schoolgirl apparently got pregnant while she was still in primary school. The father of the baby happens to be a 13-year-old boy whom the girl has a relation with. The combined age of the couple is the youngest in Britain's history. The couple reportedly expressed their wish to raise the child while staying together. The Sun reported that the young couple was "totally in love." The girl happens to "obsessed" with the boy as she thinks it is "true love." They wish to get married to each other.
