Meet Britain’s youngest granddad

Dad who welcomed daughter at 14 is now looking forward to becoming a granddad before he turns 30


A man who became a dad at 14 is set to become Britain’s youngest granddad after his 14-year-old daughter announced her pregnancy, reports the Daily Mail.


The man’s daughter and her boyfriend both attend the same school in South Wales, and their baby is due in August. While the unnamed granddad-to-be admits he was shocked when his daughter announced her pregnancy, he is now looking forward to welcoming the new arrival.

“It’s quite mad. I’m about to be a granddad. I was 14 when my daughter was born, and now she’s having a baby,” he said.

“She is very young, but she was determined to keep the child. I quite like the idea of being the youngest granddad in Britain, but at the same time I’m fuming that she is pregnant. I know myself how tough it is being a teenage parent and now she has to go through the same thing.”

The unnamed girl has said she is planning to remain at school until she welcomes her baby and hopes to return as soon as possible.
