 12-year-old is the Youngest Mother in Britain

After giving birth to a baby girl, this 12-year-old schoolgirl and her 13-year-old boyfriend have now become the youngest parents in Britain.

The girl was in primary school when she conceived. According to The Sun, "The baby's mum and dad have been in a relationship for more than a year, so this isn't a fleeting romance. They intend to stick together and bring their daughter up together."

The girl's mother will be Britain's youngest grandmother at just 27 years. Parents of both the girl and the boy are supporting them. The girl's mother was with her when they went to register the birth.

The father of the girl told a radio station that he and his ex-partner were not aware of the situation and he is proud of his 12-year-old schoolgirl.

The girl's father said, "The families on both sides are going to be very supportive about it. It is heartbreaking, but you can't turn back time. You can only go forwards."

Her friends also had no clue that she was pregnant. They found out about it when she suddenly stopped coming to school last month. She will return to school in September. The girl studies in class 7, while the new father goes to class 9, at different schools.

The girl is five months younger than the previous youngest mother of the UK, Tressa Middleton, who gave birth in 2006. It is said the couple met in a park when she was just 10 years old and together their age is the lowest for any British parents.

The previous youngest parents of the country were both 14 years old, when their son was born in south Wales in 2010.
