Britain’s youngest parents: Mum’s 12, dad’s 13, gran’s 27

A 12-year-old girl has given birth to her 13-year-old boyfriend’s baby, making them Britain’s youngest parents.

The girl, at 12 years, three months, is the UK’s youngest mother, after giving birth to a 7lb baby girl last weekend.

She fell pregnant at 11, while still at primary school, shortly after starting a relationship with a boy who lives near her family home in north London, The Sun reports.

The parents, who cannot be identified due to legal reasons, have the lowest combined age of any British parents in history.

A source close to the family said the pair, who have been in a relationship for over a year, were ‘totally in love’ and plan to bring up their newborn daughter together.

They told The Sun: ‘Both sets of grandparents are incredibly supportive. It’s a very difficult situation because the parents are both so young – but their families are right behind them.

‘The baby’s mum and dad have been in a relationship for more than year, so this isn’t a fleeting romance. They intend to stick together and bring their daughter up together.’

The young mother’s father later confirmed both sets of grandparents have been ‘very supportive’ of the young parents, but dismissed plans the pair are getting married as ‘nonsense’.

The proud parents posted a picture of them posing with their baby daughter online.

The young mother, who lives with her mother, hopes to return to school in September.

At 27, her mother is one of the UK’s youngest ever grandmothers.
