London: A 29-year-old man, who became a father at the age of 14, is set to create a record by becoming Britain's youngest grandfather, after his 14-year-old daughter has become pregnant, a media report said.
"It's like history repeating itself. I quite like the idea of being the youngest grandad in Britain, but at the same time I'm fuming that she (daughter) is pregnant. I know myself how tough it is being a teenage parent and now she has to go through the same thing.
"However, we're all going to stand by her and we will welcome the little one into the family. She is very young, but she was determined to keep the child.
"We're not going to force her into doing anything else. We don't want her to hate us," the 'Daily Mail' quoted as saying the man without revealing his identity to protect his young daughter.
The man's daughter became pregnant by her 15-year-old boyfriend and is expected to give birth in August. The couple are both pupils at the same comprehensive school and have been seeing each other for several months, the report said.
She announced her pregnancy to friends on 'Facebook', by updating her status to "looking for a pram with the mr".
The girl says she wants to remain at school until the child is born and then hopes to return to her studies.
Her father claims that he is younger than the current record holder for youngest grandfather, Dale Wright, who was also 29 when his child became a parent.
