The teen is eight weeks pregnant and plans on raising the child with the help of her 10-year-old boyfriend and his mother.
A pregnant 13-year-old shocked Russian TV audience recently when she claimed the father of her unborn child is a 10-year-old boy. Daria, 13, and Ivan, 10, shared details of their relationship during an appearance on the On Air show ahead of the baby's birth. The pair claimed it was love at first sight when they met each other about a year ago. According to Mirror, Daria is currently eight weeks pregnant and plans on having the baby and raising the child with the help of Ivan and his mother.
"A friend of mine introduced us and two days later we started dating. Ivan said he was in love with me. We tried to spend as much time together as we could. We like walking down the streets holding hands and kissing," she said. Daria further claimed that she and her 10-year-old boyfriend take care of each other and that they've set their social media relationship status as married. "Ivan has gastritis and I do not allow him to drink carbonated beverages. Sometimes I worry about my weight but he says that I am in perfect shape and do not need to go on a diet. He is very kind," she said.
The teen revealed that she and Ivan engaged in sexual intercourse at the boy's house when his mother was away. "After we did it for the first time, we hid from each other under the blanket out of shame," said Daria. Not long after, the teen girl started to feel sick and nauseous. Although her mother Elena took her to the hospital, doctors reportedly failed to determine the source of her 'illness.' Finally, Elena bought her daughter a pregnancy test kit. "The test showed that Daria was pregnant. After that, she confessed to having sex with Ivan," she said.
"I was in shock. I could not say a word. When we started talking she said she would not kill the baby and I support her decision. I do not want her to go under the knife," Elena added. Despite her young age, Daria is confident that she is ready to have a child. "When I was thinking about the delivery process, I was scared but then I saw my baby during an ultrasound. It was so tiny and cute. Now I am ready to give birth," she said.
Fortunately, she'll have her boyfriend and his mother help her raise the child. "I did not know what to say after learning that my 10-year-old son fathered a child. I think Ivan himself does not quite understand what happened. He said they came to our apartment and Daria offered him to have sex. They did not use any contraceptives and obviously did not realize the possible consequences," said Ivan's mother Galina. However, there are quite a few questions being raised about the boy's ability to father a child at this age. "Theoretically both children could have reached reproductive age," said local pediatrician Nikolai Skorobogatov.
On the other hand, Dr. Evgeny Grekov—a urology and andrology expert—does not believe that Ivan is the father of the child. "We rechecked the laboratory results three times so there cannot be any mistake. There cannot be sperm cells. He is still a child. There is even no testosterone. And just to add, he still has childish sex organs. Puberty has not started. So we have a lot of questions," he said.
A few of the families' neighbors have also expressed their doubts about Daria's pregnancy. "I think somebody else got the girl pregnant and now they want to put all the responsibility on the boy," said one man. "I do not believe the boy is the father of the child. I doubt he is developed enough for that," another neighbor chimed in. However, for Ivan, there is no question about who got Daria pregnant. "Daria has never been with another man. I know that for sure. I am the father of her baby," he said.
