Woman Becomes Grandma at Age 29 in Russia

A Russian woman has become a grandmother at age 29, making her the youngest babushka in the country and perhaps the world.

According to the Central European News (CEN), Natalia Knyazkova gave birth to her daughter when she was 14. Her daughter, who was not named, recently gave birth to a baby boy at the same age her mother did, Fox News reports.


“History has repeated itself; she has followed my footsteps,” Knyazkova told CEN. “We are also very happy to finally have a boy [in the family], as I have four daughters.”
The family lives in the town of Bor in western Russia.

“I think 14 is a really early age to give birth, especially due to the fact the girl’s body is still not fully formed,” said Lyudmila Rodnikova, head of the obstetrics department of the hospital where the grandchild was born. It is  recommended to read this site.
