April Webster and Nathan Fishbourne: Britain’s Youngest Parents

in Society

One year ago, Alfie Patten, 13, and his girl friend Chantelle Stedman, 15, made headlines and appeared in many newspapers’ and magazines’ front pages because they became parents of a baby girl. At that time, the couple provoked a new political row over “broken Britain”. Now, the world community continues to shock when two 14-year-old schoolchildren, April Webster and Nathan Fishbourne, have become Britain’s youngest ever parents after Nathan gave birth to son Jamie, who weighed 8lb 14 oz on November 15. April shared Jamie wasn’t planned but she tries to become a great mum for him and offer everything he wants. They began dating in September last year but felt too shy to ask their parents for sexual advice.

People may curiously want to know how the young couple’s parents respond this situation. Mrs. Webster, April’s mother, said it was a big shock at first but they let April make her own decision while Mr. Webster, a cab-driver, added his little girl has got a little baby and they’re really proud of what she has taken to motherhood. April now continues her schooling at young mums’ center.


Nathan’s parents, Julie, 43, and Ron, 53, a retired trucker, said they felt angry with their son at first but were now excited about the new member of the family
