Eleven year old has baby – but who is the father? Parents are shocked
The mother, who became pregnant at the age of ten, and the child are fine after the birth, they say. The girl’s parents hadn’t noticed anything about the pregnancy. “It was a big shock. Now she is surrounded by expert help. The main thing is that she and the baby are fine, ”said a source close to the family The Sun.
