 British boy Alfie Patten, 13, becomes a father. Mum is 15

A 13-YEAR-OLD boy has become a father in Britain. The mum is just 15.

Alfie Patten was present four days ago when his girlfriend Chantelle Steadman gave birth to Maisie Roxanne in Eastbourne Hospital, East Sussex, The Sun reports.

“I thought it would be good to have a baby," Alfie told the major UK paper.

“I didn’t think about how we would afford it. I don’t really get pocket money. My dad sometimes gives me £10 ($21).”

Alfie, who lives with with his mum, admitted he did not know how much nappies cost: “I think it’s a lot.”

Alfie, who was 12 when Maisie was conceived, and Chantelle decided not to have an abortion and had kwpt the pregnancy secret until at 18 weeks Chantelle's mum noticed the weight gain.

“When my mum found out, I thought I was going to get in trouble," Alfie said.

"We wanted to have the baby but were worried how people would react

“I didn’t know what it would be like to be a dad. I will be good, though, and care for it.”

Alfie’s father Dennis, who is separated from the family, said his son did not seem to appreciate what he had got himself into but at least he had taken responsible attitude.

Alfie had been present at the birth and has been keen to cuddle and hold his child.

"He could have shrugged his shoulders and sat at home on his Playstation.

"But he has been at the hospital every day,” Mr Patten said.

Chantelle defends herself and Alfie from accusations they are being irresponsible.

“We know we made a mistake but I wouldn’t change it now," Chantelle says.

"We will be good loving parents.

“I have started a church course and I am going to do work experience helping other young mums.

“I’ll be a great mum and Alfie will be a great dad.”

Chantelle and Maisie were released from hospital yesterday and will be living with her family who are supported by welfare payments.

It's such a great story!  I love it.  I lost my virginity at 15 to a 15 year old who wasn't a virgin.

at least they are trying to be mature about it. I am a teen mom [granted, i was not as young as these two...] so i know it is hard.

Alfie looks like the babies 5 year old big brother! OMG! What in the heck! I wasn't even thinking about sex at 13! I guess I am just old! I didn't become a Mom until I was 32 and I thought that was hard!!!!! I couldn't imagine having a child at that age. I just wonder what in the heck is wrong with kids today!!!!!!
