The British tabloid The Sun reports that Rifca Stanescu had her first child, a daughter named Maria, at the age of 12.
Gui Although she urged the girl not to follow her example, Maria got in the family way when she was only 11 and gave birth to a son, Ion.
Stanescu was only 23 when she became a grandmother.
Ion's now 2, and Stanescu has mixed feelings about being a grandmother at such a young age.
"I am happy to be a grandmother but wished more for Maria," she said.
Guinness World Records has indicated through a representative that it would not be recognizing "Youngest Grandmother" as an official category.
That would probably hold true for Stanescu's mother, who may be setting a record by becoming a great-grandmother at the ripe young age of 40.
