I’m sure you all have read about the 13-year-old boy who said he was the youngest father. After hearing this you might get little uncomfortable but this has happened.
Earlier in 2009, a boy named Alfie Patten who was just 13-year-old became a dad. Alfie became a Youngest Father in Britain. Alfie had a daughter, Maisie Roxanne, who was born with the weight of 7 pounds 3 ounces.
Alfie Patten The Youngest Father In Britain
Alfie Patten said it was a tremendously enthusiastic time. It was an incredible feeling to hold Maisie for the first time as he was too young to understand such situation as a Youngest Father. Alfie didn’t know the results of being a dad but he liked holding Maisie and loved her.
Meet The 15-Year-Old Mother
The mother was just 15-year-old. Chantelle Stedman gave birth to a daughter Maisie. After all it is a shocking news that 13-year-old Alfie has become a father, suddenly he became very popular. Alfie was known as a “Britain’s Youngest Father.”
Alfie got a lot of attention from everyone. Wherever he goes everyone knew who was he. For weeks he didn’t come out of the house and also took off from school.
No one had any idea on how can a young boy could raise a child. A reporter asked Alfie that can he provide the baby financially? Alfie replied, “What’s financial?” See, this child didn’t even know what is Financial and has become a dad.
Alfie’s Mom Wanted Answers
The Media and people of UK went crazy. All of them were shocked that a 13-year-old who didn’t know what does Financially means can look after a small baby.
On the other side Nicola, Alfie’s mom was heartbroken. And the more important thing is that she was doubtful. As Maisie was born Alfie was just 4′ 4” and also his voice hadn’t even broken.
Nicola said when she tried to ask Alfie about the exact thing what happened he wouldn’t reply her properly.
Alfie Was Not The Only Potential Father
As Nicola was doubtful about the father, she took the incident for a paternity test. Nicola was sure that Maisie couldn’t be her son’s daughter. There were two other boys from the neighbourhood who came and said that they can be the father of Maisie. So, Nicola was sure that there is something fishy about the situation so she tried to get to the bottom of the story.
The Paternity Test Came Back…
Finally, the Paternity Test proved that Alfie was not the father. Alfie’s mind was just ruined.
As he couldn’t see Maisie again because her family moved away as soon as they got to know that Alfie wasn’t the dad. He cried a lot for few days and didn’t even come out of the room.
So Now Who Was The Father?
A boy from the neighbourhood, named Tyler Barker. Tyler was just 13 at the time of conception. Barker accepted that he lost his virginity to Chantelle during the one-night stand as he was drunken.
Tyler said, having sex was the worst mistake of his life he ever made it. “I wish I’d never met her.”
A Father At 14
Tyler said, she asked him many times but he neglected her. For many boys, it was a routine to stay with her in her bed but Tyler only went once and this happened.
And all of us know that once is enough to make a girl pregnant. So this is how a 14-year-old Boy Tyler became a father.
Young, Unprotected Sex
When this shocking story broke the Internet, most of the UK people said it as an example of poor sex education. None of them used contraception.
Tyler said, that he did not use any protection but Chantelle told him that she will take the morning-after pill. Maybe she didn’t take care of it.
It Was A Huge Blow For Alfie
Overnight Tyler was forced to grow up and told him to manage the role of a father. On the other side, Alfie was relaxed from the fact that he is not a father. He thought Chantelle and him had a relationship at one time. He also went to the doctor with her and kept the pregnancy secret till she was ready to tell her parents.
Alfie Moved On
Alfie had to leave the past behind so he moved on. His family, friends helped him. However, Tyler’s friends were not helpful.
He said, all of his friends were teasing him and it was not at all funny. It was definitely not Funny and he agreed to it with Tyler.
Alfie’s Parents Were Heavily Criticized
Alfie’s father Dennis, and Mom Nicola were having blast on their parenting. Many people blasted on them for profiting off their young son. Nicola said we did not do anything for money. We didn’t make a single penny from those articles. We don’t know how the interviews came out and how people came and talk about us.
