11 Year Old Mother from Bulgaria

News of the World broke a story about an 11-year-old named Kordeza Zhelyazkova who gave birth to a baby girl on her wedding day. The baby weighs 2.5 kg. The young mother’s parents are in Spain. The young “family” is taken care of by the father’s mother.


Her husband, 19-year-old Jeliazko Dimitrov, a worried teenager - who is facing up to six years in prison for having sex with a minor - wrings his hands as he recalled: "I was walking past the school when I saw some boys mocking her and I told them to leave her alone.


"Then she arranged to meet me and asked me out on our first date. I thought she was 15. She didn't tell me she was 11."


Kordeza giggled: "I didn't want to say in case he wouldn't fancy me."


The pair went on their first date to their local park then met at his mum Violeta's house near the gypsy ghetto where they both grew up. But within a WEEK of them meeting, their daughter was conceived. Kordeza admitted: "I haven't had sex education classes and I didn't know how to get pregnant. I'd never had a boyfriend and I'd never heard of condoms.

"I didn't know I was pregnant until my grandmother saw I had put on weight. I just thought I'd eaten too many burgers."


By then Kordeza was five months pregnant and living with her grandmother Dida, 55, because her parents were both working on vineyards in Spain. When Jeliazko found out he was going to be a dad he dashed back from Spain, where he had been working on farms.

He recalled: "I was really scared. We didn't plan to have sex or a baby although I fell in love with Kordeza the moment I saw her."


Although Kordeza is quite happy to have a husband and baby in the same day, her new husband Jeliazko is not allowed to live with her as the Prosecutor's Office is investigating the case. For having sex with a girl under 14 he could face two to six years in prison.

Jeliazko said: "I'm scared. I want to look after my wife and child. Instead I may be going to prison. I made a mistake but I am not going to apologize for that because now I have beautiful Violeta."


Kordeza has dropped out of school and says she is not going back. 'I used to play with my toys,' she said to News of the World. 'But now my baby is my new toy.'
