A 12-year-old girl has given birth to her 13-year-old boyfriend’s baby, making them Britain’s youngest parents.

The schoolgirl was just 10-years-old when she met the father of her child, and was still at primary school when she fell pregnant, The Sun reports.

The parents, who cannot be identified due to legal reasons, have the lowest combined age of any British parents in history.

The girl is five months younger than the UK’s previous youngest mum while her mother becomes one of the UK’s youngest-ever grans at the age of 27, The Mirror newspaper reported.

A source close to the family said the pair, who have been in a relationship for over a year, were "totally in love" and plan to bring up their newborn daughter together.

They told The Sun: "Both sets of grandparents are incredibly supportive. It’s a very difficult situation because the parents are both so young – but their families are right behind them.

"The baby’s mum and dad have been in a relationship for more than year, so this isn’t a fleeting romance. They intend to stick together and bring their daughter up together.

"They’re very into each other, totally in love. She is obsessed with him. She sees this as true love. They want to get married."

The young mother, who lives with her mother, hopes to return to school in September.
