23-Year-Old Becomes World's Youngest Grandmother

March 8, 2011

At 23, I was still in college, partying on Tuesday nights and flitting in and out of classes during the day. What were you doing? Even if you had a child, you definitely didn't have a grandchild, like 23-year-old Rifca Stanescu of Romania, who is said to be the world's youngest grandmother. (Although, according to Wikipedia, the youngest grandmother was17-year-old Mum-Zi of Nigeria.)

Rifca eloped when she was 11 in fear of being forced into marriage by her father, gave birth to daughter Maria at age 12. Now 11-year-old Maria has given birth to baby Nicolae after marrying last year. Rifca says she's glad to be a grandma, but had wished more for Maria.

I just hope the two young moms have lots of support; it's going to be a challenging road ahead for all three generations. And I hope Nicolae breaks the cycle and waits until he's an adult to be a parent. I was about to suggest someone send him some clips of Teen Mom, but he will probably get a taste of teen mom chaos in his own home.

Wow. My issue is with them marrying so young. Had that not been the case, I'm almost positive this would not have happen.

 My sister has worked for WIC for the past 15 years. She's seen a couple really young grandmothers. But I'm not sure if any were that young. I think the youngest was 26.

I know. Totally gross. 11 year olds definetly don't want to make love and make a baby. So sad.
