That is why with the news of a pregnancy can have different reactions, from a “congratulations”, even a “how is this possible?”
Below we show younger people who know the feeling of being parents:
1 – Sean and Emma
The young man who appears in this photo is Sean Stewart, who became the youngest father in the United Kingdom. The young man was only 11 years old when he had sexual relations with his 15 years old neighbor, Emma Webster.
Emma stated that she did not know that Sean was only 11 years old when she lay down with him. Fortunately for her, the social networks had not yet been invented in 1998.
After the birth, he proclaimed to the media: “I Hope to be close to Emma as long as possible. She comes to my house every morning before school and comes by every afternoon. Everything is going well at the moment.”
Unfortunately, things stopped working, and Sean and Emma are not in contact. When asked three years ago about Sean, Emma said: “I have not seen Sean in three or four years. He has not seen Ben since then. I am now married and have a great family.”
2 – James and Sarah
James Sutton was only 12 years old when he got his 16 years old girlfriend, Sarah Drinkwater pregnant with twins. Although most thought that James and Sarah could not cope because of their young age, eight years later they are still together and are owners of their own home. In addition to the twins that the couple had when they were teenagers, they also have a two-year-old daughter.
Despite the fact that James regrets having the title of “the father’s younger twin of Great Britain“, is proud and delighted to have closed the mouth of all who trusted in him.
3 – Sem and Tia
Shem Davies was just 14 years old when he became a father for the first time. Now his 14-year-old daughter, Tia, has repeated his story after having a baby just a week before the age of 15 years.
At 29, Shem is now the youngest grandfather in Great Britain. He separated from Tia’s mother, only three months after her birth, Shem said that he was “absolutely delighted” with the news that he was going to be a grandfather.
Although Shem was surprised when his daughter told him that she was pregnant by her 15 years old boyfriend, Jordan Williams, he said he never thought of bashing them
“I could have shouted, but, what would be the point? I know the difficult future that awaits them because I’ve been in the same situation.
4 – Alfie and Chantelle
Alfie Patten, 11 years old, and with the face of a baby, made headlines around the world when he impregnated his girlfriend, Chantelle Steadman, a 15-year-old girl.
In a display of ingenuity, the small Alfie said “I don’t know very well how we are going to function. I don’t have any money. My father sometimes gives me 10 pounds“.
But the results of the DNA showed that Alfie was not the father of Maisie Roxanne. Interestingly, instead of being happy for the news, little Alfie was completely disappointed.
“He wouldn’t stop crying when he found out that he was not the father,“ said the mother of the boy. Apparently, the real father of the baby was another teenager, a 15-year-old named Tyler Barker.
5 – Catherine Moore
Catherine Moore became one of the youngest mothers in Great Britain to have a Down’s Syndrome baby after falling pregnant at the age of 15.
Despite being only a girl, Catherine Moore, now 19, refused to abort after learning that the baby had Down’s syndrome. Instead, she promised to raise him and prove the naysayers wrong.
“We are a team and I am very proud of him. Although I was only a little girl when I had him, I never thought to give him up.”
“He needed me and I needed him, it was that simple. I could never be without him. It is simply the most wonderful thing that has happened to me. I hate when people regret having Down’s syndrome baby. Tyler is as he is and wouldn’t change it for anything in the world.”
6 – Kordeza and Jeliazko
Kordeza Zhelyazkova, was only 11 years old when she gave birth to her daughter, Violet, during her own wedding!
Kordeza had been playing on the playground when a group of thugs tried to abuse her. When Jeliazko Dimitrov, 19, saw what was happening, he quickly ran to rescue her. The couple began to talk and ended up falling in love. Jeliazko thought that he was 15 years old and Kordeza and he feared to tell her his true age.
One day, the young man was surprised to discover that she was pregnant. Even without being able to get over the surprise, his family organized a wedding for the baby to be born in a real family. Unfortunately, the nerves in the moments leading up to the wedding made Kordeza have a premature delivery.
“Don’t I get to play with more toys, I now have my own toy,” said Kordeza. “I love her. Now Violet is the girl and I should grow up. I will not return to school because now I am a mother“.
7 – Tressa Middleton
Tressa Middleton, now 21, was severely criticised when she gave birth at the tender age of 12 years, at which time she was already addicted to drugs and alcohol. As soon as she was born, Annie was taken from Tressa. Surprisingly, Tressa kept a tragic secret: she had been raped by her older brother and he was the father of her baby.
“I just hope that someday she will forgive me. I know it’s going to be hard for her when she discovers that her uncle is actually her dad. I hope that she won’t blame me for not having told people what really happened at that time, for drinking and for not being the mother she needed.”
8 – Lina Medina
In 1939, a girl just 5 years old named Lina Medina gave birth to a healthy baby. Little Lina lived in a small village in the Peruvian mountain.
The parents of Lina feared that their daughter had an abdominal tumor mass, but after being examined by doctors, the parents discovered that the girl was eight months pregnant. Lina’s Doctor, Gerardo Lozada discovered that the sexual organs of Lina were fully developed.
Lina gave birth to a child weighing 2.7 kg and named him Gerardo in honor of her doctor. The child grew up believing that Lina was his sister.
The father of Lina was arrested on suspicion of having raped his daughter but later released for lack of evidence. Lina never revealed who was the true father of her child. Her son grew up healthy and died in 1979 at the age of 40. Lina is now 83 years and is still alive, but refuses to talk to the press.
