Teen pregnancy story: "Alfie"'s fatherhood to be determined by paternity test

I previously commented on the 13-year-old British boy, "Alfie", who was reportedly the father of a baby, co-parenting with "Chantelle", who's 15. A quick update: Alfie's now to run a DNA test to confirm he truly is the father of the newborn child.

LONDON - A DNA test will be performed to determine whether a 13-year-old boy fathered a baby with his 15-year-old girlfriend, his spokesman said yesterday.

The test comes after a Sunday tabloid newspaper reported that other teenage boys have come forward claiming to be the father of the newborn baby girl.

Hang on – other teenage boys have come forward clamoring for the spot as this baby's father? Sheesh, how many kids has this girl slept with already?

(Seriously, though ... how young does Alfie look? Crissakes, he looks like as much a little kid to Chantelle as their baby ...)
