(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.
