Baby-faced boy Alfie Patten is father at 13

BOY dad Alfie Patten yesterday admitted he does not know how much nappies cost — but said: “I think it’s a lot.”

Baby-faced Alfie, who is 13 but looks more like eight, became a father four days ago when his girlfriend Chantelle Steadman gave birth to 7lb 3oz Maisie Roxanne.

 

He told how he and Chantelle, 15, decided against an abortion after discovering she was pregnant

The shy lad, whose voice has not yet broken, said: “I thought it would be good to have a baby.

 

“I didn’t think about how we would afford it. I don’t really get pocket money. My dad sometimes

gives me £10.”

 

 

Alfie, who is just 4ft tall, added: “When my mum found out, I thought I was going to get in trouble. 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 dad Dennis told how the lad does not really understand the enormity of his situation — but seemed desperate to be a devoted and responsible father.

 Gosh, he's just a baby himself. He sounds like he wants to be responsible though. Good luck to them.

Wow, I am at a lost for ....wait no I'm not. He is too young. Our children our getting way out of hand now a days. They need good old fashion work to keep them from thinking they need to be parents at an age when they should be studying and playing with their friends. Who paying for that baby's diapors us? He can't get a job at thirteen. That is ridiculous.
