Apparently there is a woman in Rotherham that has become a great grandmother at the age of 38, as her 13 year old grandaughter has had a baby. I can't find anything about it on the internet, so it might just be a rumour, but I can imagine it being true unfortunately. A sad state of affairs IMO.

So she became a grandmother at 25, so must have become a mother herself at what, 12? hmm I think if that were the case Jeremy Kyle/Sun/NOTW/DM and the likes would have htis splashed all over their websites.

IF its true then its sad for all involved. The numbers don't quite seem to add up though...

It seems to be true

I found this story, might be the woman involved might not.

I don't know where the story came from, people have been talking about it at work. I'm in Sheffield so it's not a million miles away from here.

I was going to go and what, as I read it wrong and thought it said grandmother not the great first.

If this is true how sad but I can't find owt in the press either.

Threatening to 'smack the ambulance man'. That's nice. hmm

I would be so ashamed.

The story in the article RobF linked to is from 1999, so I am assuming there is something more recent out there that you are referring to

There's been nothing in the news. That story from 1999 is the only thing I could find when I searched for great grandmother Rotherham. The dates add up if it is the same family. Scary to think that someone born in 1999 is already a parent though.

So sad. I hope it's not true.

I remember on record breakers when I was a girl they had a family where something like 10 generations were all alive. Looking back they must have been having babies really young all the way through but back in the 80s this was a cause for cheer and a reason to meet Roy Castle grin

If it's true & the same family - the new mum would be 11 shock.

The girl in the artical had a son. The girl who give birth "if" its true could be any age.
