- James And Sarah
James Sutton was just 12-years-old when he got his 16-year-old girlfriend Sarah Drinkwater pregnant – with twins! Most thought James and Sarah would be unable to cope due to their young ages. But eight years later he and Sarah are still together and own their own home. As well as the twin girls the couple had when they were teens, they also have a two-year-old daughter.
While James regrets having the title of being ‘Britain’s Youngest Father Of Twins’, he is proud and delighted to have proved the doubters wrong. The couple doesn’t take state handouts and James, now 21, has spent the last five years working full-time for a construction company.
Sarah is busy studying for a university degree and works as a pharmaceutical researcher. Between them the couple earns a decent living and has bought a £100,000 house in Manchester, to give their children a secure home.
The twins, Leah and Louise, seven, are settled in school and the arrival of two-year-old Ellie has brought the couple even closer together. They are even thinking of getting married. Sarah, who is studying for a degree in human biology and health sciences at Salford University, said she too was pleased their relationship had survived despite their unexpected arrivals.
“Nobody thought James and I could ever achieve what we have done,” said the 24-year-old.
- Sean and Emma
The young boy in this picture is Sean Stewart – the UK’s youngest dad. The schoolboy from Sharnbrook, Bedfordshire, was only eleven years old when he had s.ᴇ. x with his 15-year-old next-door neighbor Emma Webster.
Sean’s mommy let him take the day off school when Emma was due to give birth. Emma, her parents, Ray and Shirley, and Sean’s mother, Theresa were all in attendance when Emma gave birth to Ben Louis on January 20, 1998.
Sean and Emma became an official couple and he vowed to stand by her and his son saying at the time: “I was shocked at first when I was told Emma was pregnant but I am all right about it now.”
15-year-old Emma claimed she didn’t know that Sean was only eleven-years-old when she slept with him. Luckily for her social media wasn’t invented in 1998, so instead of being called a sick baby snatcher on Facebook, the ‘sweet’ story of how Sean would climb across a roof to meet with Emma made headlines all over the world. After the birth, Sean told the Daily Mail: ‘I hope to stay close with Emma for as long as possible. She comes round to my house every morning before school and meets me off the bus every afternoon. Things are OK at the moment and nothing has gone wrong.’
But unfortunately, things did go wrong and Sean and Emma are no longer in contact. When asked three years ago about Sean, Emma said: ‘I have not seen Sean for three or four years and he has not seen Ben since then. I am married now and have a nice family. Ben is doing well at school. We just want to get on with our lives. I don’t know where Sean is or what he is doing.’
