10-Year-Old Gives Birth

10-year-old Romanian girl gives birth to a baby girl…

A 10-year-old girl from Romania has given birth to a baby girl in the southern Spanish city of Jerez de la Frontera.

The baby girl was born in the last week of October, just two weeks after the 10-year old moved from Romania to Spain.

According to the Spanish media the father who is still in Romania is also a minor aged 13.

Officials are now deciding whether the mother and her family can keep custody.

Andalucias social affairs minister Micaela Navarro explained that the well being of both the mother and baby, was the main concern:

If they can be well cared for, they can stay with the family, she said. [BBC]

The babys grandmother, who is a Roma gypsy, is apparently happy with her new granddaughter. According to the Andalucia daily, Diario de Jerez, the grandmother could not understand what all the fuss was about. She was quoted as saying:

“This is the age we get married in Romania.”
