2000s / Britains Teen Parenthood Uproar
In February 2009 this picture of new father Alfie Patten of Eastbourne, England alarmed the western world. The 13-year-old Patten (who looked to be about eight) was alleged to be the proud papa of a baby girl named Maisie, making Patten Great Britain's youngest father. The mother was Alfie's 15-year-old girlfriend Chantelle Stedman. Despite Patten's naivete (he didn't know what the term 'financial support' meant) the young couple decided to raise their daughter. The story created a media sensation in Britain. It was later learned that Alfie's older sister had a baby at age 13. Newspaper editorials cited the story as proof of declining morals and responsibility in the country. It also called into question the effectiveness of the UK's school system's costly sex education programs. Three months later DNA tests proved that another teenager, 14-year-old Tyler Barker, was the biological father. According to Stedman, Barker and Patten were just two of eight possible fathers.
