The 12-year-old pregnant South African girl, who made headlines days ago after she shared her photos on social media with the caption ‘pregnant and proud’, has shared photos of her baby daddy.
The baby daddy of the 12-year-old pregnant South African girl, is reportedly a 14-year-old boy who lives in their neighbourhood. Here are loved up photos she shared below;
Last year, it was reported that 1 000 teenage girls were pregnant in Erkhueni area of South Africa. One of the girls was a grade 5 student – meaning a 11 or 12 year old girl is expecting her first child. The general feeling of the DA is that young girls under the age of 16 are being taken advantage of – a reason behind the shocking number of them falling pregnant.
According to a report by The Sowetan, the Ekurhuleni mayor, Mzwandile Masina, stated that one of the main reasons young girls are falling pregnant is “the cult of blessers”. A “blesser” is basically a sugar daddy, but maybe not more than 10 years older than the girl he “blesses” with gifts and money.
When these girls fall pregnant, majority of them do not return to school. The girls will then struggle to provide for their child and build a future for herself.
