That's baby faced, 13-year-old father Alfie Patten, 15 year-old mother Chantelle Steadman, and their newborn baby Maisie.

During the baby's first days out of the hospital, Patten and Steadman spent their time caring for the baby and playing Saints Row II. From UK tabloid The Sun:

The four-footer — who looks no more than eight — said: "I know I'm young, but I plan to be a good dad."

As he went on the PlayStation with 15-year-old girlfriend Chantelle Steadman, he added: "I think we'll be good parents. I'll have to work extra hard at school."

Chantelle looked up from 18-rated action game Saints Row II to admit her first night out of hospital since having 7lb 3oz daughter Maisie had been tough and had left her "in a daze".

Saints Row II? Wait just a second. How they hell did they get Saints Row II?! That game is for adults, not kids. Adults. These two are so not ready for Saints Row II. Nobody doubt their sincerity in wanting to play Saints Row II. They're too damn young. Somebody tell their parents before it's too late!

Aside: When I was 13, I had a paper route.

Feeding, nappies... and PlayStation [The Sun]

Oh my god, this story is creeping the hell out of me!

It's not the fact that they had sex. My first time was when I was 14.

And it's not the part about Saints Row II either...

It's just that... OMFG! IF YOU'RE A 15 YEAR OLD GIRL, YOU DON'T HAVE SEX WITH A 13 YEAR OLD BOY AND GET PREGNANT!!!

I'm still young enough to remember clear as day what kinda gap in maturity (both mental and physical) there is between a 15 year old girl and a 13 year old boy! Girls mature earlier than boys and at that age it happens so fast that just one year in age changes a lot!

This is almost the same as if I (22) had a 17 year old boyfriend!
