An 11 Year old girl in Britain who is believed to be the youngest expectant mother in the United Kingdom is now the subject of a police investigation.
Though details of the case and investigation are being kept behind wraps due to legal restrictions Police say the father of the baby is believed to be another minor, a few years older than the girl.
The current youngest mother gave birth in 2014 when she was 12 and the father was 13; the lowest combined age of any British parents. Their toddler, a girl, is now reportedly looked after by her 28-year-old grandmother while the teenage mother attends school.
Last year, 25,977 women aged 19 and under had babies in England and Wales – about the same levels last recorded in 1946 when 24,816 children were born, according to the Office for National Statistics.
