Whatever happened with the 13yo dad?kid.

Published: 13 Feb 2009
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."


Little family ... Alfie, Chantelle and baby Maisie

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 story, broken exclusively by The Sun today has sparked a huge political storm with Tory leader David Cameron saying: "When I saw these pictures this morning, I just thought how worrying that in Britain today children are having children.

"I hope that somehow these children grow up into responsible parents but the truth is parenthood is just not something they should be thinking about right now."

Secret

PM Gordon Brown refused to comment directly on the story but said it was important that the Government did all it could to prevent teenage pregnancies.

Alfie's dad Dennis yesterday told how the lad does not really understand the enormity of his situation - but seemed desperate to be a devoted and responsible father.

He wanted to be the first to hold Maisie after the hospital birth. He tenderly kisses the baby and gives her a bottle.

And Dennis, 45, said: "He could have shrugged his shoulders and sat at home on his Playstation. But he has been at the hospital every day."

Maisie was conceived after Chantelle and Alfie - just 12 at the time - had a single night of unprotected sex.

They found out about the baby when Chantelle was 12 weeks pregnant.

But they kept it a secret until six weeks later when Chantelle's mum Penny, 38, became suspicious about her weight gain and confronted her.


Devoted ... Alfie holds and cuddles Maisie
Lee Thompson
After that Alfie's family told only those closest to them for fear he would be "demonised" at school.

Chantelle gave birth to Maisie on Monday night after a five-hour labour at Eastbourne Hospital, East Sussex.

Last night she told The Sun: "I'm tired after the birth. I was nervous after going into labour but otherwise I was quite excited."

Chantelle told how she discovered she was expecting after going to her GP with "really bad" stomach pains. She said: "Me and Alfie went. The doctor asked me whether we had sex. I said yes and he said I should do a pregnancy test. He did the test and said I was pregnant. I started crying and didn't know what to do.

"He said I should tell my mum but I was too scared.

"We didn't think we would need help from our parents. You don't really think about that when you find out you are pregnant. You just think your parents will kill you."

But Penny figured out what was going on after buying Chantelle a T-shirt which revealed her swelling tum.

Chantelle admitted she and Alfie - who are both being supported by their parents - would be accused of being grossly irresponsible. She said: "We know we made a mistake but I wouldn't change it now. 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."


Caring ... Alfie bottle feeds his little daughter
Chantelle and Maisie were released from hospital yesterday. They are living with Penny, Chantelle's jobless dad Steve, 43, and her five brothers in a rented council house in Eastbourne. The family live on benefits. Alfie, who lives on an estate across town with mum Nicola, 43, spends most of his time at the Steadmans' house.

He is allowed to stay overnight and even has a school uniform there so he can go straight to his classes in the morning.

Alfie's dad, who is separated from Nicola, believes the lad is scared deep down.

He said: "Everyone is telling him things and it's going round in his head. It hasn't really dawned on him. He hasn't got a clue of what the baby means and can't explain how he feels. All he knows is mum and dad will help.

"When you mention money his eyes look away. And she is reliant on her mum and dad. It's crazy. They have no idea what lies ahead."

Dennis, who works for a vehicle recovery firm, described Alfie as "a typical 13-year-old boy".

He said: "He loves computer games, boxing and Manchester United." Dennis, who has fathered nine kids, told how he was "gobsmacked" when he discovered Alfie was to be a dad, too.

He said: "When I spoke to him he started crying. He said it was the first time he'd had sex, that he didn't know what he was doing and of the complications that could come.

"I will talk to him again and it will be the birds and the bees talk. Some may say it's too late but he needs to understand so there is not another baby."

Lovely

Chantelle's mum said: "I told her it was lovely to have the baby but I wish it was in different circumstances. We have five children already so it's a big financial responsibility. But we are a family and will pull together and get through.

"She's my daughter. I love her and she will want for nothing."

Last night Michaela Aston, of the anti-abortion Christian charity LIFE, said: "We commend these teenagers for their courage in bringing their child into the world.

"At the same time this is symptomatic of the over-sexualisation of our youngsters and shows the policy of value-free sex education just isn't working."

Today Sussex Police and the local council's children services said they have investigated the case and pledged continued support for the young parents.

Britain's youngest known father is Sean Stewart. He became a dad at 12 when the girl next door, 15-year-old Emma Webster, gave birth in Sharnbrook, Bedford, in 1998. They split six months later.

A hoax? 13-year-old UK dad

Alfie Patten was believed to be Britain's youngest father after his 15-year-old girlfriend, Chantelle Steadman, gave birth to baby girl Maisie. Last week British newspapers shocked readers by running images of the baby-faced boy, who looks as if he could be 10, holding Maisie. Even SFGate ran an Associated Press piece on the homepage.


thesun.co.uk

Alfie Patten, age 13, was believed to be Britain's youngest father.

But then the whole story fell apart when several other boys stepped forward claiming to be the father.

Why would kids be fighting over the responsibility of an infant?

Apparently, there's lots of money to be made in parenting at a young age. Tabloid papers paid the couple big bucks for photos of Maisie (though now the Press Complaints Commission is investigating the legality of these alleged payments, according to BBC News). What's more, at least 15 television companies were locked in a fierce battle to make a documentary about the cherubic teenager's young fatherhood, and media experts estimated Alfie could earn up to half a million pounds, according to the Independent.

Some British newspapers reported that Penny Steadman, the baby's grandmother, might have devised a plan to cash in on all the publicity she knew the story would create. A friend of the Steadman family, Clive Sim, revealed to the Mirror that Penny told Chantelle to stay quiet about all the other boys she'd slept with because "she knew Alfie being the dad makes a better story." Sim said, "I think there's a big scam going on here."

How does Alfie feel about all of this? Devastated! He agreed to take a DNA test, and according to the Sun, earlier this week he expressed his anger by wearing a hoodie displaying the message, "I'm the daddy, if not f**k you all I'll still be there." (I hate to pass judgment, but who lets their kid wear something like this?)


thesun.co.uk/KNP

Defiant..Alfie's strong-worded message emblazoned across the back of a hoodie.

The latest news is that Britain's Channel 4 has dropped a planned documentary on the 13-year-old boy over concerns about paying the family. The Sun reports, "A High Court judge yesterday imposed restrictions on reporting any new details. After a private hearing at the Family Division in London, judge Mrs Justice Baron said she was concerned about the 'mother and baby being unable to live a normal family life.' The judge also ruled that Alfie, of Eastbourne, East Sussex, should be able to 'live his life and return to school in a normal way.'"

Finally! Something seems right in this picture.

And with that let's open it up to comments...

After a month of speculation, the DNA test indicates he is not the father.

Lee Thompson/thesun.co.uk
Alfie Patten was believed to be Britain's youngest father after his 15-year-old girlfriend, Chantelle Steadman, gave birth to baby girl Maisie.

But then many other boys claimed they also slept with the mother, who had previously said that Alfie was the only boy she had slept with. As a result, Alfie took a DNA test, which indicated that he's not the father.

The Mirror reported:

The result will be a blow to Alfie who was "devastated" by the boys' claims and "adored" Maisie.

He was convinced he was the dad after a single night of unprotected sex with Chantelle.

Before he took the test, he said: "I didn't know about DNA tests before but mum explained it's when they do a swab in your mouth and it tells if you're the dad. So if I have it, they can all shut up."

His mum Nicole, 43, added at the time: "It had not even crossed Alfie's mind whether Chantelle had not been faithful to him. He's absolutely devastated that these lads say they slept with her."

Interestingly, the Mirror has now pulled down their story.

Hopefully Alfie can deal with the disappointment of not being a father, and Maisie can get the love and support she needs and deserves.

That kid is an r-tard. he's gonna go out and get someone else pregnant just because he's pissed about this one not being his baby. She should have told him she was such a promiscuous lady though instead of him having to find out after all this.

He's 12 yrs old! He has no concept of manipulative deception. He probably barely understands sarcasm.

When is the 15 yr old mum, going to be on Maurry, to find out who's the daddy?

I work with 12 yr old's all the time (jr. high youth group) and they definitely understand the concept of cheating, lying, deceit, and sarcasm - even church-going kids.
