In 2021, a young couple became grandparents.
But they are happy to appear in a new role and say that there are more pitfalls than they could expect.
In 2020, the couple’s daughter, Charmaine, shared the news of her pregnancy with her parents. Then the girl turned 16 years old, and she named her boyfriend, whom she had dated for two years, as the father of the unborn child.
When the parents found out the truth, they were in no hurry to quarrel with the guy and his parents. This is due to the fact that Jenny also became a mother quite early – at the age of 17, and did not forget how close people refused to support her. The woman decided not to repeat the mistakes of her family.
“I understood how my daughter felt when she decided to tell the truth. But I immediately told her that this was her decision, and whatever it was, I support her. Since then, Charmaine has matured quickly – this is natural, because she was preparing to become a mother,” says Jenny Medlam.
The girl gave birth to a healthy baby in the summer of 2021. The baby was named Isla May.
The newly minted grandparents are happy that their daughter made the right decision, and they also say that the baby is very similar to their daughter at the same age.
Now Jenny is 34 and Richard is 35.
In addition, strangers will be sure that this is their child.
“When we go for a walk with the baby, others are sure that this is our child. But we try to explain that this is our granddaughter. A lot of people think it’s a joke.”
