After falling pregnant at the age of ten, an 11-year-old girl became Britain’s youngest mother when she gave birth earlier this month.
According to the Sun UK, the mother and her baby, who was born after more than 30 weeks of pregnancy, are both healthy and well-cared for.
Due to her young age, the girl’s name has not been revealed.
Her family had no idea she was pregnant, according to the Sun, and social services and council officials are examining the situation.
‘It has come as a huge shock,’ a source close to the family told the publication.
She’s now surrounded by professionals. The most important thing is that she and the baby are doing well.’
