Alfrie Pattern is the 13 year father of little Maisie Lee Thompson. He became a father four days ago when his girlfriend Chantelle Steadman gave birth 7lb 3oz Maisie Roxanne. Pattern told how he and Chantelle, who is 15, decided against abortion after discovering she was pregnant. Pattern said, “I thought it would be good to have a baby”. “I didn’t think about how we would afford it. I don’t really get pocket money. My dad sometimes gives me $10″.
Sources say,Alfie, who is just 4ft tall, added: “When my mum found out, I thought I was going to get in trouble. We wanted to have the baby but were worried how people would react. “I didn’t know what it would be like to be a dad. I will be good, though, and care for it.”
Pattern’s story broke and it sent a huge political storm with Tory leader David Cameron saying: “When I saw these pictures this morning, I just thought how worrying that in Britain today children are having children.
“I hope that somehow these children grow up into responsible parents but the truth is parenthood is just not something they should be thinking about right now.”
Pattern’s father said the lad doesn’t really understand the enormity of his situation but he seems desperate to be a devoted, responsible father, and he wanted to be the first to hold his child after the hospital birth. When he arrived at the hospital he kissed the baby and gave her a bottle. Showing his devotion, Pattern decided to be at the hospital everyday instead of playing his playstation.
The baby was concieved after when Pattern was 12 in a single night of unprotected sex.
