(Newser) – Ten years old: An age for playing with your friends and … giving birth? Apparently so, for one youngster in Spain whose baby was born last week. The baby’s father is also a minor, the AP reports, citing local newspapers. One local report quoted the new mother’s own mother saying such young births are ... common. Authorities are deciding whether to let the 10-year-old and her family retain custody.
