Edinburgh, England:  A girl aged 12 and three months and her 13-year-old boyfriend have become Britain’s youngest parents, it emerged last night.

The mum was just ten years old when she met the dad and was still at primary school when she fell pregnant.

The young couple, from north London, celebrated the birth of their baby daughter at the weekend and have vowed to stay together as a family.

The girl is five months younger than the UK’s previous youngest mum while her mother becomes one of the UK’s youngest-ever grans at the age of 27.

A source told The Sun: “The baby’s mum and dad have been in a relationship for more than a year, so this isn’t a fleeting romance. They intend to stick together and bring their daughter up together.

“Both sets of grandparents are incredibly supportive. It’s a very difficult situation because the parents are both so young — but their families are right behind them.”

The UK’s previous youngest mum Tressa Middleton gave birth in Edinburgh aged 12 years and eight months in 2006.

The world’s youngest mum was Lina Medina from Ticrapo, Peru, who gave birth to son Gerardo when she was just five years and seven months in 1939.
