A 13-year-old boy has become a father, it emerged today.
Alfie Patten is now a parent to Maisie Roxanne after his 15-year-old girlfriend Chantelle Steadman gave birth four days ago.
The baby-faced 4ft teenager said he was determined to be a good father even though he has no money and only occasionally gets pocket money from his father.
'I don't really get pocket money. My dad sometimes gives me £10,' he told The Sun.
As for nappies Alfie said he didn't know how much they cost but added: 'I think it's a lot.'
Alfie, who lives with his mother Nicola, 43, in Eastbourne, was 12 when Maisie was conceived after the pair had just one night of unprotected sex.
Twelve weeks after having had sex the 15-year-old schoolgirl discovered she was pregnant after she started suffering stomach pains and went, with Alfie, to the doctor.
