Do you know why God created parents? Because he cannot be found everywhere. If you go back and recall your childhood memories, you will still feel how better your parents brought you up.
Relationships matter a lot. Especially, when we are a child, we need attention, love and care both from our mother and father. The presence of the two completes our life.
On one hand, when the love from our mother is valuable, the companionship of the father also contributes equally. Our mother gave us all the love, fulfilled all our wishes, whereas our father cared about our lifestyle and taught us ways to deal with the outside world.
Top 10 Most Youngest Fathers Ever in the World
The love, compassion of our father pave our way. He acts as a guide, friend, mentor and helps in taking various decisions of life. He knows our ins and outs. He is there to support us and strengthen us in weak moments. It is only our fathers who make us a better person and gives us the strength to face the different stages of life.
In this blog, we’ve listed down some of the youngest fathers in this world.
Irrespective of their age, these fathers were always there to support their kids.
At the 10th position, we have a 14-year-old father
At such a teenage, this boy became a father. He is a UK resident and understood his responsibility of being a father while he was very young.
Not only this but he is also the youngest grandfather. His daughter gave birth to a kid while he was 29. He then became a grandfather. You never know, how soon he learns to be the youngest greatest grandfather!
At the 9th place, we have a boy from Russia
Surprising? Isn’t it1 Well, the story is even more exciting.
This young boy became a father to a premature baby girl while he was just 12 years old. His girlfriend lives in Kazan, Russia. The girl was merely 10 years old and she hit her puberty before the age of 10.
This happened in 2010. He is now 16 years old. And by far he has achieved the 9th rank of being the youngest father in the world.
A 13-year-old boy secures his position at number 8th
This unrevealed boy is native to Belgium and became a father in the year 2007. His girlfriend named Montigny-le-Tilleul happened to be his schoolmate too. The pregnancy first got noticed by the girl’s mother. She immediately started gaining weight, which her mother couldn’t overlook.
Her mother helped her with a better diet but she found out about the pregnancy only when they visited the doctor. He was then 13 years old. So, now he should be 22 years old. Quite younger than the father at number 10.
This incident was reported in 2007 until then nobody now has an idea what happened to the girlfriend then.
At the 7th position, we have a 13-Year Old Father from Britain
We again have a father from Britain. He got into the father role while he was just 13. His baby was from his then-girlfriend Chantelle Steadman. That was such a young and nascent stage to take care of a baby. But still, he did that. And secured his position amongst this list. Even doctors were shocked because, at this time, the reproductive function is still developing and at such an early stage, fatherhood wouldn’t have been possible.
His baby’s face did not assure that he could be the father. This picture caught the attention of so many parents residing in Britain. There were also some rumours spreading that he is not the real father of the girl. But this was then proven via a DNA test.
A 12-year boy safeguards his place at number 6
From a place none other than Zimbabwe, we have a 12-year-old boy, who became father to a girl named Samantha. Earlier this was not in public. This got exposed when his daughter was at the age of 10. But, this incident happened in 2003. So, at this time, the age of this young boy is 25.
The girlfriend (mother to the baby) later found out how this happened and she was then brought to the hospital where she learnt that she was pregnant.
At number 5, 13-year-old father in Russia
It is said that this 13-year-old boy raped his neighbour then. His neighbour named Anya was quite older to him. Some would say how she attained puberty at such a young age. But, Anya reached puberty at 7 posts which she gave birth to Rostov-on-Don. This happened in 2000 when the boy became father to a baby girl.
British schoolboy aged 13, at the 4th position
This one is yet another unbelievable story. The story breaks the record since the couples were reported to be the youngest couple- 13-year-old boy, a 12-year-old girl.
A 13-year-old became a proud father. He also took the DNA test to prove that he is the father of the child. He was then the youngest fathers. His daughter was born weighing around 7 pounds 3 ounces. He even mentioned that he was too young to understand the after-effects of being a dad but once he held her hand, he immediately started loving her.
Later then, the child was known to be staying with her mother in London.
At the 3rd position, we have UK’s youngest dad
Sean Stewart became the youngest father in the world. He is from the UK. This schoolboy was just 11 years old when he developed physical relations with 15-year-old Emma Webster.
Later, they became an official couple. After the birth of his daughter Ben Louis in Jan 1988, he said that he will stay close to Emma. Things were absolutely fine at the time their daughter was born. Sean is now 30 years old.
Unfortunately, things didn’t work out well amongst the two of them and Sean is now no more in contact with his daughter and Emma. Their daughter Ben is doing great at school. But Emma is now married and has a different life. She has no idea where Sean is.
The 11-year-old boy from Auckland became the world’s youngest father and secured the 2nd position
An 11-year-old from Auckland became the world’s youngest dad after he had physical contact with the 36-year-old mother of his school friend. His identity is not yet revealed. According to the sources, this incident happened in 2012. This was an attempt to force sex. The boy was forced to be in contact with the woman until she got pregnant.
Later, this was exposed to the school’s principal which, in turn, led to the arrest of the mother.
9-year-old father secures the first position for being the world’s youngest dad
He was just 9 years old when he brought an 8-year-old baby girl into this world. This took place in China in 1910. Sad but true, this practice is common in China to become parents and get married by 10. This old china policy is the major reason why China is still titled as the most populous country. The young father and mother are parents to 4 children- 2 daughters, 2 sons respectively. Any other revelations are still not known.
When we talk about being a parent, we normally picture couples in their late twenties or thirties. But, the list above shows most of the cases where the fathers are barely in his teenage years. Hope this list has not surprised you.
These stories are years back but the one thing that you could figure out is that times are changing, especially in places like the UK and US. It’s quite normal to fall in love or be parents somehow.
But there is nothing to be surprised about. Just like the ones discussed above, there are many other cases in the world where the fathers are merely in his teens. They are still themselves children while they became a father.
Some of them were schoolboys, some were playing around with the kids, some with their favourite cartoon characters etc., And amongst them were others who set up shocking records by becoming the youngest fathers in the world.
The feeling to be a parent at such a young age is the next level. Most people cannot contain it. Even if they had issues with the child’s birth, they get away with it. Because of the connection between a child and a parent is just unmatched.
The best part of these stories was that most of them lived a happy life. Some of them got married. Some parted ways but they gave their children a happy life. This is how good stories should end. Such stories are memorable and offer golden lessons for life.
