(Scroll down for video) Britain’s youngest parents said that they hope to be together forever, just days after giving birth to a baby girl.
The father of the 12-year-old girl, who has become the youngest mother in the United Kingdom, insisted that he was happy to learn that his daughter is about to give birth rather than being on drugs.
The schoolgirl, who became pregnant with her 13-year-old boyfriend when she was still in primary school at the age of 11, gave birth to the 7 pound 4 ounce baby on Sunday. At 12 years and three months, she is five months younger than the previous youngest British mother.
The couple said yesterday that they are totally in love and have been dating for a year. The grandfather of north London, no longer lives with the 27-year-old grandmother, the mother of the girl who gave birth.
The girl’s father insisted that his grandson is not going to be supported by government benefits. “I come from a family of working people. We will not beg for money at government offices, like other people are suggesting. I work, I own my own business. I’m totally going to support them with my own money. We are not freeloaders. I’m going to support this baby the best I can with my own money,” the girl’s father and the baby’s grandfather, said.
