The woman, Natalia Knyazkova, had her own daughter when she was 14 years old, and her daughter gave birth to a baby boy at the same age.

"History has repeated itself; she has followed my footsteps,” the grandma told Central European News. “We are also very happy to finally have a boy [in the family], as I have four daughters."

The head of the obstetrics department of the hospital where the little boy was born expressed that Knyazkova’s daughter has a world of responsibility at a very young age.

“I think 14 is a really early age to give birth, especially due to the fact the girl’s body is still not fully formed,” said Lyudmila Rodnikova.

The family lives in Bor, located in western Russia. 

Last year, a 12-year-old girl and 13-year-old boy became Britain's youngest parents. They reportedly had been in a longterm relationship, and the grandparents were "incredibly supportive," according to The Sun. 

The couple conceived when the then-elementary schoolgirl was 11 years old, according to the report. The girl's parents didn't realize she had been pregnant.
