A 13-year-old Russian girl who got popular after she revealed she was pregnant for a 10-year-old boy, has given birth to her baby prematurely.
An Instagram profile which gives 121,000 followers updates on Darya Sudnishnikova, now 14, claimed she had given birth and shared a photo of her appearing to be cradling a newborn baby girl.
It had initially been thought she was not due until September, but the teen later said as her pregnancy is so unprecedented “no one knows what week I can reach”.
In February she was reported to have been rushed to hospital with doctors fearing she could have a miscarriage.
Darya and friend Ivan, now 11 – who she initially said was the dad – previously appeared on Russian TV and vowed to raise the child together.
However, the young mum has since claimed she was actually s.e.xually assaulted and that the attacker is the real father.
She has described the alleged rapist as a 15-year-old and also a “very fat” man – and that the attack took place in her hometown of Zheleznogorsk – known for its nuclear production.
Reports in Russia some months ago had said a 15-year-old boy was put under house arrest after a complaint from Darya’s family.
