Just when you think you have heard it all… something strange creeps out from wild internet news. This woman, just 25 years old now insists she is the youngest grandmother in the world… becoming a grandmother for the first time at the ripe old age of 23!
Ridca Stanescu of Romania gave birth to her daughter Maria when she was only 12 years old herself, and expressed that she wanted better for her daughter. Instead, daughter Maria followed in her mothers footsteps at age 11 and gave birth to a baby boy.
In the Romanian gypsy culture marrying young is not something out of the blue, but Ridca wanted a better life for her own daughter, as most parents do.
Before Ridca, the worlds youngest Grandmother was an unnamed 26-year-old from Rotheram, Yorkshire, whose 12-year-old daughter gave birth in 1999.
