Growing up as a girl, we used to play Barbie dolls, playing house, and cooking stuff up using clay. we played house with our friends, taking turns being 'the mom'. Shockingly, however, a girl from Ticrapo, Peru got pregnant at the age of only five.
Lina Marcela Medina de Jurado was born on 1933. She lived like a normal girl then—until her tummy started growing and her body became matured for a five-year old kid. Doctors suspected she had tumor in her stomach.
But after a series of medical examinations, doctors and the parents were shocked after finding out that Lina was seven months pregnant already!
After weeks of discovery, she gave birth to a boy.
Additionally, parents also revealed that Lina was already having her regular menstruation which suddenly stopped when she became pregnant. She had her first period at only 8-months young.
Lina’s case bewildered medical practitioners, and until now after 80 years, she’s still the only one to set the record as the youngest mother in history.
Meanwhile, Lina’s father was arrested for alleged rape and sexual abuse but was released soon after because of lack of evidence.
Lina and her family continued to live a normal life after her case died out. She grew up, married, and gave birth to second son in 1972. They lived in a small town in Peru. However, Gerardo, her first son died of bone marrow cancer at the age of 40.
