Today’s story is about a schoolboy, aged 14, from Manchester, UK. The boy was extremely happy (or “chuffed to bits” as the Brits say), to learn that his 16-years old girlfriend was pregnant with his baby. The mother said: “My son is mature for his age and will make a good father. He will make a better dad than most 25-year-old men would.” Those are strong words coming from the mother – we can all hope that the kid is going to do a good job being a father at that age.

More interesting is the fact that his girlfriend Chantelle Steadman gave birth to their baby at the age of 15, which makes them the youngest parents ever. Actually, she got pregnant at the age of 14 when she shared her room with her 12-years old lover.
