Eleven-year-old gives birth
An 11-year-old girl recently gave birth to a baby boy in a Northeast hospital, according to Fox News. The girl’s mother said her daughter and the infant were doing well.
“My daughter and baby are fine, and the baby is absolutely beautiful,” stated the girl’s mother.
Circumstances surrounding the girl’s pregnancy were unknown and her identity has been kept a secret in order to protect her privacy.
Also recently, a nine-year-old from China gave birth to a bouncing baby boy via Caesarean section. Police are investigating and may press charges if they discover who the father is because in China, sex with a minor under the age of 14 is considered rape.
The youngest reported mother in the world is five-year-old Lina Medina of Lima, Peru, who gave birth to a healthy baby boy in 1939.
