The title of world’s youngest grandmother has been shifted and now goes to Rifca Stanescu, of Romania.
Stanescu married especially young. At just eleven years old, she ran away with her 13-year-old boyfriend and eloped.
As it turns out, Stanescu feared that her family would marry her off to a man that she was not in love with. She gave birth to daughter, Maria, when she was only twelve years old.
The young mother had always wanted a better life for her daughter, a hope that was shattered when ten year old Maria followed in her mother’s footsteps.
The girl wed last year, and now at the age of 11, has given birth to a son, Ion.
