Youngest grandmother at the age of 23

Rifca Stanescu, from the village of Investee, Romania, told how she gave birth to her daughter, Maria, while only at the of 13.

Despite her mother's please to stay in school, Maria gave birth to son Ion at the age of 11.
Rifca, now 25, told the Sun: 'I am happy to be a grandmother but I wished somewhat else for Maria - and something else for me.

Ion is a good boy - and he is already engaged to a girl at aged 8. Boys are forever good to have - they don't have to suffer as much girls I think.

Born in 1985, Rifca defied her family's wishes and ran away with jewellery merchant Ionel Stanescu when she was 11 and his husband was at 13.

A year after they were married, Rifca fell conceived with Maria.

She said: I wanted to marry him, so I decided, and of course after we had spent the night together then there was no way anyone could disconnect us. I had been promised to one more boy's family since I was two years old but I didn't want that.

Britain's earlier youngest grandmother was an unnamed 26-year-old from Yorks. Her daughter, 12, gave birth in 1999.
