A 12-year-old girl has given birth to her 13-year-old boyfriend’s baby – making them Britain’s youngest parents.
The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had a daughter last weekend after conceiving when she was still at primary school.
She was 11 then, and is now in Year 7 at school. Her boyfriend, who also cannot be named, is in Year 9 at another school.
The pair have the lowest combined age of any British parents on record.
She, at 12 years and three months, is five months younger than the UK’s previous youngest mother, Tressa Middleton.
The Sun reports that their child weighed 7lb.
At 27, the girl’s mother, who was a teenage mother herself, is also now one of Britain’s youngest grandmothers.
The parents, from North London, have been in a relationship for a year and say they are ‘totally in love’.
