British boy becomes dad at 13 (VIDEO)
A 13-year-old British boy has fathered a child with his 15-year-old girlfriend making him one of the country’s youngest dads, The Sun reports.
The front page of the British tabloid shows a picture of a baby-faced boy holding the hand of a newborn girl.
Alfie Patten, who looks very much younger than his age, was only 12 when his girlfriend, Chantelle Steadman conceived after a single night of unprotected sex.
The young couple decided against having an abortion and Chantelle gave birth to their 7lb 3oz daughter, Maisie Roxanne, at Eastbourne District General Hospital earlier this week.
“When my mum found out, I thought I was going to get in trouble. We wanted to have the baby but were worried how people would react,” Alfie said.
