The youngest mother in the UK gave birth to a child at the age of 12, while her family was unaware of the pregnancy.


Reports suggest that an 11-year-old mother in the United Kingdom is the youngest so far, whose family was unaware of the pregnancy.

The girl, who became pregnant at the age of 10, gave birth to a child earlier this month, and both the mother and the child are healthy, as reported by The Sun.

The social services are now examining the circumstances of the pregnancy and are in discussions with the girl’s family, who were unaware of the pregnancy, the newspaper further reports.

An anonymous source told The Sun that it was a big shock and that the girl is now being supported by experts.

The most important thing is that the mother and the baby are doing well.

„There are questions about why people didn’t know about it. That’s very concerning,” the source added.

Tressa Middleton was previously the youngest mother.

She gave birth to a child at the age of 12 in 2006 but had to give it up after confessing that the father of the child was her brother and had raped her.

The record for the youngest parents belongs to a father aged 13 and a mother aged 12 when they had a child in 2014.

Puberty typically begins in girls around the age of 11 but can range from 8 to 14, with weight playing a role.

When younger children are pregnant, there is a higher risk of issues such as premature labor, infections, and preeclampsia.

There have been reports of another girl in the United Kingdom giving birth at the age of 11, but no further details were made available.

Tressa Middleton, pictured with her second child Arihanna, has expressed how happy she was after the troubles with her first baby.

The youngest mother in the world was a Peruvian girl named Lina Medina, who gave birth to a boy named Gerardo in May 1939 at the age of five years and seven months.

Her parents thought she had a tumor, but when she was taken to the hospital, it was discovered that she was seven months pregnant.
