Pregnant 14-year-old girl to raise her child together with her 10-year-old boyfriend

Published

A 14-year-old girl has revealed her fright of giving birth but has insisted her 10-year-old boyfriend will help her raise the baby.

Darya Sudnishnikova was only 13 years old when she got pregnant and appeared on a Russian TV show to claim the father was her friend, Ivan.

In January, Darya told TV viewers; “It was Vanya’s idea (to have sex). But I did not mind. He closed the door leaving the key in the lock, so his mum could not open the door.”

She later revealed she was raped by a boy, 16, and had felt too ashamed to say. But Ivan, also known as Vanya, now 11, has promised to raise the baby with her.

Now there are concerns that the baby may be born premature and the mum-to-be says it leaves her feeling “more afraid than ever“. New videos from the hospital show her strapped up for a cardiotocography to check the foetal heartbeat.

Darya, now 14, who has become a social media star in her homeland with a quarter of a million following her through her pregnancy, said to her followers, “Honestly, I am afraid to give birth. What pain there will be … And painful contractions.”

She has previously said she is likely to have a Caesarean. She also posted; “I was told that I will not hang on until August, but I will try my best for the baby to be full-term.

“Now I am more afraid than ever. I’m scared to even get out of bed, you never know what can happen and I may give birth. “I was forbidden to go out. It’s impossible even to go to the canteen, since it is a long way from the ward, and they bring food to me.”

The schoolgirl said the pregnancy had some downsides including morning sickness, heartburn, constipation, and stretch marks. The weight gain was “just terrible” – “I walk like a bear…. It has become very difficult to walk. Of the alleged rape, she said her baby would be given a DNA test after birth and police will decide on action against her alleged attacker.

Speaking about her alleged rape, she said; “This man was VERY fat for his age. And very tall. The scariest is that he lives in the same town, and our town is small….

“I am really scared to meet him somewhere on the street., it was in November and really on the staircase (to a block of flats). “It was dark already and that is why no-one could help. I cannot say more, think you understand me.”
