What do you think?

I hope somebody helps those two take care of the baby...

My friend was telling me about that. She was saying how freaked out she was over it.

To me, it seems like your average young teenager. I mean I've heard about 13 year olds getting knocked up just because it seems "cool". A lot of them either get STDs or get pregnant.

Some consider even getting abortion and others have the baby, but will put it up for adoption because they are too young to care for it. Others have parents who are supportive and will take care of them baby while they are in school.

My mom said that if I ever got pregnant during school, she would help me take care of the baby.

It all depends on their parents and our society. Teenagers are doing it because they see people on television doing it. To young people, television is everything and if they can't do what other people do on TV they'll freak.

He doesn't know what "financial" means.

Google the MSN article.

It really gets sad to see that teenage pregnancy happens too much. He impregnated a girl 2 years older than him. That must have been one desperate smore.

I feel bad for the kid. You can tell he's scared. :C

edit: I just noticed that Chowder quote in Advanced's sig. How ironic.

Ironic how he's 13, but looks waaaaaay younger, and she's 15, but she looks like a crack addict in her late teens.

Awkward.

The thing that freaked me out was when he didn't know what financially means.
Really awkward, that girl looks like she could be his big sister. o.O

Gah, if I ever got pregnant (Highly improbable) I'd probably be kicked out of the house.

@AdvancedK9: Yeah, she was probably very desperate. I know people like that, who go date people three years younger than them just so they can say they have a boyfriend/girlfriend. But, they never show pictures of their little boyfriend/girlfriend. xD

This shows that schools should have sex ed classes earlier, before puberty, and without the lame cartoons. Give it to them straight and simple.

I saw something about this yesterday but I didn't think of it much. My opinion still hasn't changed. I'm not surprised about this either. Teenage pregnancies happen all the time. I'd probably be more surprised if it were the other way around; a 13 year old mother.

I was like, "So.. Which one's the baby?"

*shot*

In all seriousness, I don't see how it's so bad. I mean, of course he might not be ready, since his age makes him seem immature and not responsible enough. But well, he and his girlfriend are going to try to be good parents. And he seems to care about his baby a lot, so he's more mature than it seems. Though at that age, it's not the best time to have a baby. But really, as long as they care for their baby, I think it's fine.

If not, there's always the option of putting the baby up for adoption. :o

But I guess I see your point. If their parents are okay with it, and they want to be devoted parents, then there's hope. But their relationship could end, and where would that leave the baby?

Alfie's got all his classmates to face, too...

The poor boy looks like the baby's older brother rather than his father. The mother looks like she's been doing some kind of drugs and is in her late teens. I hope that baby has a good life :/

I'm sure his girlfriend has her period. Sperm is always dormant in a male. So if a girl has her period when she's let's say.. At the age of 9, she can get pregnant.

It throws you off a bit sure, but as has been said there's nothing we can do. As long as they take care for the baby then there's nothing wrong with it whatsoever. I just feel sorry for both baby and father for the taunts they'll recieve on the high school playground.

Well, i can't say there really is a specific time frame for a "puberty stage". The father could have been able to ejaculate since he was 11, but then some people are still "firing blanks" until later on.

Aizuke:What do you mean by "sperm is always dormant in a male", exactly? Do you mean it's always being made, even before the boy is able to ejaculate? Or do you mean boys can ejaculate from the beginning?

I guess, overall, we just have to hope that they will be good to the child. Yes, they were probably too young, but 9 months has come and gone now. They went through with it.

Also, why is it always articles from the Sun we get? First the racoon penis thing, now this. O.o

Epic win @ ^ XD

And to answer the puberty thing, most boys will have slight ability at about the age of 11 to ejaculate, but will not realize it until mid 11 or 12 in a wet dream... or when discovering masturbation, whichever comes first.

He IS 13, if not, then how the hell did the teen get pregnant?...

Nobody answer that rhetoric question please...

...Wow....that's....odd. Then again, not anything I've seen before.

But the kid is 13, I suggest they either find a family for an open adoption, or take care of it themselves

Avey
February 14th, 2009, 07:36 AM
If the British government doesn't force them to put the baby up for adoption or make the kids' parents to keep care of her, there's something seriously wrong here.

Alfie said he didn't know how much nappies cost. "I didn't think about how we would afford it. I don't really get pocket money. My dad sometimes gives me £10."

This is also ridiculous. 'I'm going to be an awesome dad even though I don't know the first thing about babies or income.'

Even sadder is the fact that this has hit the front pages of newspapers. Sure, he's thirteen, but we see this all the time. It's just that people don't really make a big deal out of it. Get over yourselves.

That kid looks like he hasn't even finished kindergarten and he gets laid? He doesn't even know what "financaly" means. That's just messed up. Those two had to be desperate.

Their child will probably be wondering why are other parents twice as old as his/her own parents when they'll come to pick him/her up from kindergarten.

Ironically, i completely agree. If it came from The Sun after all..Page 3 anyone? *sarcasm* What a horrible stereotype.

I wonder what the doctors thought when they helped a 15 year old girl give birth. I wouldn't be able to describe it myself.

Is anyone thinking about what's best for the baby? Because when you really look at it, it's her life that will be royally screwed. Like how Evilyn said, the dad will be 17 when he picks his daughter up from Kindergarten. If I were the teacher, I'd be totally freaked out, and when she gets to higher grades the other kids most definitely will not let her live it down. If they really were mature parents, they'd put her up for adoption.

To be honest, it's a wonder that the father's even made a decision. A kid of his age would normally have been overwhelmed by that responsbility.A normal kid his age would be crying, regretting why he had done this, when he's still got so much to learn about the unfair world. But at least he's giving it a go, yeah? I just hope the kid actually sticks to his word.

This is exactly why we need to get the message out to kids that having sex before you're ready to take care of a baby is dangerous. I'm glad that they went through with it instead of taking the easy way out, but who know's how they're going to take care of it? I pray that the baby grows up to be fairly normal. I certainly can't imagine my parents being only fifteen or thirteen years older than me. I think it might be wisest to put the baby up for adoption. Maybe that way all three of them will be able to grow up well.

Jorah
February 14th, 2009, 08:41 AM
I feel sorry for all of them. The boy will be 17 when his child is in Reception...and he's still going to have to go to school everyday knowing they've got a baby at home. They'll probably both drop out at 16 though.

I don't think it's the baby that will get picked on when at school, no-one's going to notice or really care who it's parents are. It's the parents that are going to be picked on...until they're 16, at least. Heh...you can leave school at 16 in the UK.

Idiots messing up their own lives can be funny, but idiots permanently messing up a baby's life is anything but funny. I think that baby's only real chance to grow up well lies in adoption.

But a 15 year old having sexual intercourse with a 13 year old who could get away with probably being 6 or 7 :\ Its kinda O_o when you think about it :\
And I laughed when the kid didn't know what finance means XD
Hes kinda....whats the word.....screwed....

Anyway, I blame the government for not brainwashing the little kids for not having sex while they had the chance.... i vote the Birds and the Bees should start earlier.... And be more in depth! :(

I love whenever a topic remotely related to sex is posted on PC. The majority of members here are so unbelievably self righteous and, yet, incredibly naive and sheltered from the real world. It's so amusing.

People asking why these two kids were having sex? Take a look at the modern world. Sex is everywhere. On TV, in movies, in songs, in books, in magazines, in freaking commercials. Some of it subliminal, most of it downright obvious.

And, especially to the people living in England, what do you have to do for fun in your area nowadays? The answer is - not a lot. There are an incredible lack of activities and opportunities for fun out in the world. Places are closing down because they can't afford to stay open. Places that are still open usually require you to spend money which most, non-spoiled, kids don't have. You can't go to the park because of the fear that you're gonna be either attacked by a paedophile or a gang of thugs.

And not everybody has the good fortune to have precious little mommy and daddy's that will buy them consoles and video games and computers and iPods and blah de blah blah.

So why are these kids having sex? Boredom, most likely. Kids are growing up so fast these days because they're not able to be young anymore.

The only thing they could be criticised for is not using protection or, for the few mature people here, not "pulling out." Having said that, they were clearly gonna have sex, no matter what. And they could've wanted to use protection, but who would sell condoms to a kid that looks like a 9 year old? So, yeah, I can even understand if they thought protection was not a possibility. Stupid. Borderline retarded, in fact. But still, a decision they made. And an action they're still standing by today.

That little boy has shown more balls by facing up to his actions and frigging TRYING TO DO THE RIGHT THING FOR HIS CHILD. Jesus Christ, you people. Right or wrong, that baby is their child. They want to do the best they possibly can to raise the child, like a parent should be. Social Services will be at the house all the frigging time. If they judge the child is being poorly looked after, they'll take action and take the child into a care home.

Some people are so blinded by naivity, they don't even deserve to have an opinion. Harsh? Yes. Blunt? Yes. True? Yes. But most of you wouldn't have even read this far into the post anyway.

I watched a news report on YouTube about this. His voice hasn't even broken yet and he looks only a two or three inches taller than my five year old sister. I'm thirteen, my voice has broken in, and I'm atleast 5'5. I could also understand them having sense because like Dawson said it's everyone in the media, but atleast put on a damn condom. The one time you don't would probably be starting point of hell; espeically at that age.

Oh lord. That is just wrong. First off, a 15-year-old and 13-year-old...? Even though they are only two years apart, they still shouldn't be having that kind of intense relationship at their age in the first place (plus, the 13-year-old looks more like a 10-year-old to me).

And quite honestly (thinking of Juno here), they should've interviewed a family to give the baby to. I mean, it'd be probably really, really difficult to put up with school (not to mention homework), any afterschool activities and a child ALL AT THE SAME TIME. I mean, adults sometimes give up work just to take care of newborns. And unless the boy (or girl, for that matter) are homeschooled in any way, then they're gonna be living in their own personal hell 'til who knows when.

And what I find the worst part to be is, you never know if the two will break up. Then the baby would someday ask one of the parents where their other parent is (when they're older and can speak, of course), and I don't think either would want to give an explanation...

'Tis all my own opinion.

The girl has a real bad looking face very pale like she is on drugs,but I hope not. It's very interesting how teens are this day.

Eucliffe

And that's exactly what I hope they do. It'll be beneficial to both of them. They won't have to worry about taking care of a newborn while juggling homework and hormones at the same time, and the baby will be with a loving, married couple that wouldn't even think of abusing it.

That's why interviews with couples are always the best, in my honest opinion. Or even singles, sometimes they have the time on their hands (to tell the truth, I actually wish to adopt a child when I'm old enough, to tell the truth; having my own baby would be nice since it would have my genes, but I don't want to abandon any sort of orphan and whatnot; that just wouldn't be nice of me).

Babies having babies. It's really terrible that a little twelve year old boy had to go off and have sex. Although he's thirteen at this time, he's not thirteen and sexually active. He's thirteen and a father. The fifteen year old mother isn't a real shock for me, as I've seen other people her age get pregnant in the past.

At this rate, the kid will be a grandfather before he's thirty. Kind of weird having someone call you Gramps when you're just coming out of college, assuming that the boy's going to go to one. :/

Yeh bunch of idiots at the sun better start thinking whats better good articles or protecting the public. Anyway lol if i got a kid at this age sure i would freak out and all but hey i might be able to take up the responsibility.

I seriously found this rather messed up. The kid looks like an 8 year-old and has a child with absolutely no idea how to take care of her. Also, the amount of publicity this is getting is also becoming ridiculous... =\

And now...
Two other teenage boys are also now in the headlines with their own exclusive stories - they say they could be Maisie's father as they both slept with Chantelle Stedman around the same time as Alfie Patten.
... someone else wants their 5 minutes of fame?

It could only happen in the UK, I lol'd when I saw on the Wright Stuff that she dosn't know who the dad is.
The poor baby didn't ask to be created by two irresponsible teens... The teen parents probably didn't have a good upbringing if they think that this is acceptable; the baby won't have a good upbringing from them either, it will probably also be a teen parent and then the cycle continues.

why does this always happen in the UK. All that says to me is parents need to teach their children properly about contraception and all the consequences of not using any.

People can do silly things sometime (I have once) but at that age they shouldn't even be thinking about anything like that. The boy looks like 6 and the mum well not even going into that one. Also with the rumours of there being more potential fathers it shows even more young people just being irresponsible. Unless the system changes on how young people are taught about these things this will become more and more common and it shouldn't. They are far to young to understand what they are doing or what they have gotten themselves into. I have a sister that will be a year old in April and that is hard for me to cope and I'm not the parent.

They have no income, still have to go to school and they now have a child. There is no way the child will get the life that it deserves. My mum had me at 17. She had to give up school and worked all the time to make sure I got the best life. They are far younger than she was and they are in no position to leave school and they are far to young to earn a substantial amount of money. Only person I feel sorry for in all of this is the baby.

I'm not at all suprised. In fact, the youngest parent ever
recorded was Lina Medina, age 5 1/2, from Peru.
As cold-hearted as this may seem, I don't really care how the
baby will grow up. It's their concern, not mine.
The only thing i'm worried about is the fact that the
kid doesn't even know what the word "finance" means.
Then again, that's what dictionaries are for...

Hmmm...I may get alot of conflict over this, but I blame it on the parents. I mean, why didn't they supervise them enough so this wouldn't happen? Why didn't they talk to their son/daughter earlier? It could have been prevented...But the boy and the girl are just idiotic.
EDIT: Oh, and I just found out the girl was taking birth control pills but missed one. I wonder how she got those pills? Even if not from a parent, a parent should still find them in her possesion.

I suppose its only decent to congratulate the new parents. However, I don't think that they are ready for the responsibility that comes with raising a child. Both of them are still in school, meaning that in addition to their activities at school, they also have a baby to raise and take care of, which is a full time job. The two also likely lack the experience needed to raise a child , and the baby is likely to have a rather unstable childhood.

This makes me feel sad to be British. Children of 13 do know the birds and the bees talk (and most of them have found stuff on the internet), so in part they have their own minds and thus are able to make their own choices with informed opinions. However, I don't know that either set of grandparents (of the baby, parents of the kids) can be completely blameless in this, because children do not plan to have babies at 13/15 unless the idea has been planted in their minds from family or situations.

Wow.... A father at Thirteen? Thats just nuts.... The kid don't even look 8!

Well, thats what he gets, I guess for being irresponsible.... And his girlfriends 15, right?

I hope someone helps take care of the baby. I'm glad the mother decided against abortion... But really, the kid went EXTREME! hope he does well.

Why's everyone hating on the girl looking like a 'crack-addict in her late teens?' It's stupid. What the hell has her looking like a crack addict got to do with raising a baby? And don't quote this and say "Because she might be doing drugs" because there's no proof of her doing drugs. Seriously.

What makes me laugh is that when Alfie is in his 30s or 40s, the baby will nearly be as old as him.

On a serious note, I don't see a reason to be so shocked about this. It's their life, their choice. They're the ones that have to deal with the baby now, so we shouldn't say that they'll be bad parents. If they're devoted enough, they can do it just as well as any other mother... 'cept buying the baby stuff.

Actually, truth be told (I dunno if anyone else mentioned this), but I heard that The Sun was not always a reliable news thing. So any of this could be false, but made to sound true.

Anyways, yeah, I think they really should give the baby away. Don't want the parents to feel stressed out or anything. And yeah, the boy definitely looks younger than he supposedly is. For all we know, that could be his baby brother than he's holding. And the girl could be his friend or his sister in reality.

Unfortunately, sometimes the people who supply us with news like to make up their own stories and whatnot. If this gets on a more trusted news thing, then I might be more apt to believe it.

I heard about this and I was shocked. When I seen a picture of them, I was totally shocked. From shocked to totally shocked. The father still have his baby face and of course the mother looks very young. If I was them, I would have given the baby up for adoption. But if they are willing to take care of the baby, that is their choice. That would be something that when the baby grows up, the parents are still going to be young. Like in their 20s or early 30s. I really don't know how they going to do it because they don't have jobs, but they will think of something. If they can't think of anything, they have to give the baby up for adoption.

And there are other guys who stepped up and admit that could be their child too? Man, this is so confusing. x.x The world today has changed...

No offence to anyone including them but what they did was extremely stupid. As well, the age and size, it's way to ridiculous. You often hear teen pregancies but this one is just wow.....

It's very sad to see the baby having to grow up with his dad.

Why would the boy then admit this story on video, this would ruin these kid's rep at school and around the community.

Epic win @ ^ XD

And to answer the puberty thing, most boys will have slight ability at about the age of 11 to ejaculate, but will not realize it until mid 11 or 12 in a wet dream... or when discovering masturbation, whichever comes first.

He IS 13, if not, then how the hell did the teen get pregnant?...

Nobody answer that rhetoric question please...

He most likely had Precocious Puberty.
Precocious puberty is puberty that begins
before age 8 years for girls and before age
9 years for boys.

I once met someone in person that had this...

In all seriousness, I don't see how it's so bad. I mean, of course he might not be ready, since his age makes him seem immature and not responsible enough. But well, he and his girlfriend are going to try to be good parents. And he seems to care about his baby a lot, so he's more mature than it seems. Though at that age, it's not the best time to have a baby. But really, as long as they care for their baby, I think it's fine.
I don't mean to be disrespectful, but you sound as innocent as those kids. It couldn't be further from "fine". It is not fair for their families nor for the baby; like Alfie's father said, they don't even realize the depth of what they've walked into. A baby will always be a big deal, young or not. It's not like their families are in the best condition to afford these kind of stupid mistakes. Of course, a good share of the blame goes to them as well.

I'm sorry to be skeptical, but kids that age sometimes can't even take care of their pets properly. Many teenage parents as old as 17 (four years older than this kid) struggle incredibly to raise a baby in similar situations. As much as this boy cares, the baby will not be fed and taken care of by pure love, not in this world.

I've seen that on the other forumsites I go to. I think that kids that young should just keep that thing in there and wait until they get married to "do it". The father looks like he's 10 and the mother looks about 2-3 times older than he is. Kids these days do a lot of crazy stuff.

They probably did, but how does that help them? The expenses would go far beyond 10 pounds, so even if discussing it, it wouldn't help. And if they did go over it, their parents would be getting a bit suspicious, and they wanted to keep it hidden until it had to be told.
