Gemma Skinner, 33, became Britain’s youngest grandmother when her 17-year-old daughter, Maizie, gave birth to a baby girl.
When Maizie, who is still a child, gave birth to her daughter, the nurses at the hospital thought her mother was the child’s aunt. A mother of three living in Buckinghamshire, Skinner said she didn’t want to be called a grandmother at first, but now she likes it.
Skinner said that everyone thought she was the baby’s mother because she went out with her granddaughter. Everyone was very surprised when she told the truth about the situation. Her granddaughter, named Larosa Mae, is now a week old baby. Skinner also has a four-year-old daughter, Bella, the youngest child.
Skinner was only 16 when she gave birth to Maizie. That’s why she was worried at first when her 17-year-old daughter told her 19-year-old boyfriend that she was pregnant. She said, “My first reaction was to be worried because I too had a hard time getting pregnant at such a young age. I wouldn’t want to change anything, though. I love our little family very much. I am proud of Maizie.”
Maizie and Jack are both now in the family home in Amersham, Bucks, so granny Gemma can help out with childcare. But Skinner said her 54-year-old mother, Lorraine, is still not used to the idea of being a great-grandmother.
