While wandering around the cyberworld, i came to visit a news page. Oh, i don't know what to call it but, ahh! whatever. And when i am browsing the site because there are so many interesting news, i found this topic and it shocks me the most. Oh my, never thought this is possible.
Baby-faced boy Alfie Patten is father at 13
BOY dad Alfie Patten yesterday admitted he does not know how much nappies cost — but said: “I think it’s a lot.” Baby-faced Alfie, who is 13 but looks more like eight, became a father four days ago when his girlfriend Chantelle Steadman gave birth to 7lb 3oz Maisie Roxanne. He told how he and Chantelle, 15, decided against an abortion after discovering she was pregnant. The shy lad, whose voice has not yet broken, said: “I thought it would be good to have a baby. “I didn’t think about how we would afford it. I don’t really get pocket money. My dad sometimes gives me £10.” Alfie, who is just 4ft tall, added: “When my mum found out, I thought I was going to get in trouble. We wanted to have the baby but were worried how people would react. “I didn’t know what it would be like to be a dad. I will be good, though, and care for it.” Alfie's story, broken exclusively by The Sun today has sparked a huge political storm with Tory leader David Cameron saying: "When I saw these pictures this morning, I just thought how worrying that in Britain today children are having children. "I hope that somehow these children grow up into responsible parents but the truth is parenthood is just not something they should be thinking about right now."...more??
Poor boy. But, maybe it's his fate. Oww. What a sad fate, though. I was just really shocked. Thinking of the 'Dad at 13' boy's future. *sigh* Well, that's it! See you guys again next time. (As if we'll really see each other, huh?)
