UK's Youngest Grandfather

A man from South Wales was fuming that his 14-year-old daughter got pregnant, but he couldn't stay mad for long because 1) he became a father himself at 14, and 2) At 29, he's just broken the UK record for youngest grandfather! He said:

“I know myself how tough it is being a teenage parent and now she has to go through the same thing. However, we’re all going to stand by her and we will welcome the little one into the family.

“I don’t feel like a grandad – I’ve not got grey hair and my hearing is top notch.”
He added that his 47-year-old mother cannot wait to become a great-grandma.

“She was 18 when she had me,” he said. “She was shocked when I told her the news, but she is happy now.

“Her own mum is alive, and so too is her grandmother, who will become a great-great-great grandmother. There can’t be too many families with six generations alive at the same time.”

I think it shouldn't be a world record for youngest grandfather.
Back when our lifespans went to about 30, it would be normal for that to happen. It is only because we live longer that our ideals changed.
