Thirteen-year-old Alfie Patten, who, with his baby face, could pass for eight, became a father on Monday, the Sun reports. The 4-foot-tall Brit—who did not know how much diapers cost but said, "I think it’s a lot"—was not sure how he and girlfriend Chantelle Steadman, 15, would care for their daughter. "I don’t really get pocket money," he said. "My dad sometimes gives me £10."

Alfie told his own father the one night of unprotected sex that produced daughter Maisie was his first sexual experience. Though it’s a bit late, Alfie’s dad "will talk to him again and it will be the birds and the bees talk. He needs to understand so there is not another baby." Probably a good idea, since the teen is still allowed to spend the night at his girlfriend's house.
