(Newser) – A one-time Romania maid had no luck convincing her young daughter not to follow in her footsteps and get pregnant way, way too early. So now mom-of-two Rifca Stanescu, who had her first baby at the age of 12, is already a grandma at the age of 23. Yep. Her daughter, Maria, got pregnant at 11, reports the Sun. "I am happy to be a grandmother but wished more for Maria," said granny Rifca as she cradled her new grandson. Rifca married her 13-year-old husband at the age of 11. Her daughter wed at 10.

I'm from Romania,please understand that the news that you saw now is not about romanian people,is about Romany Gipsy! We have nothing to do with the culture and the tradition of this people. I'm 22 and i have no childrens and trust me,i'm not the only one! Now romanian girls make children aproximatly after the age of 27! Come to Romania and visit our country to see how nice the people are before talking bad about us! Thanks
