A GIRL of 11 will become Britain’s youngest mum next month.
It is not known whether she will have to have a caesarean section.
The girl is in the East of England, but the details and circumstances about the pregnancy can’t be revealed for legal reasons.
In similar cases local authorities have worked with the mum, offering counselling to her and other involved.
Last month a previous youngest mum in Britain revealed she was expecting.
Now 23, Tressa Middleton first fell pregnant at 11 and gave birth aged 12.
Her child was taken into care.
Tressa told how she has since turned her life around after alcohol and drug addictions.
She said she was now was expecting again, this time with fiancé Darren Young, 30.
In 2014 another 12-year-old girl gave birth, five months younger than the age Tressa was.
The father was a boy aged 13 — the lowest combined age of any British parents in history.
Tressa said: “I sent her warmest congratulations but it will be incredibly tough.
“At that age you’re so worried about what other people think at school.”
Any girl can become pregnant if they have gone through puberty.
In girls, puberty usually starts between the age of eight and 11, but every girl can be different.
Some girls do start their puberty early, around the age of eight, which is called precocious puberty.
During puberty the girls periods will being, meaning their body is preparing to have a baby.
This is the main sign that a girls ovaries have developed and have been released into the womb.
As soon as a girl begins her period she is able to get pregnant.
The average age a girl in the UK starts her period is 12 years old.
