A schoolboy who has become a dad at the age of 13 has insisted he will be a good parent.

Alfie Patten's girlfriend Chantelle Steadman, 15, gave birth to Maisie Roxanne in Eastbourne Hospital, East Sussex, four days ago.

Little Alfie, who stands just 4ft tall and looks young for his age, told a newspaper: "I thought it would be good to have a baby."

But he admitted he did not think about how he would afford to raise his child.

"I don't really get pocket money. My dad sometimes gives me £10," he said.

Alfie, who lives with his mother Nicola, 43, in Eastbourne, was 12 when Maisie was conceived.

The pair, who have the support of their parents, kept the pregnancy secret until Chantelle's mother Penny noticed her daughter's swollen belly.

Alfie said: "When my mum found out, I thought I was going to get in trouble. We wanted to have the baby but were worried how people would react

"I didn't know what it would be like to be a dad. I will be good, though, and care for it."

Alfie's father Dennis said his son wanted to be a devoted and responsible father, but did not fully appreciate what he had taken on by having a child.

He said Alfie had wanted to be the first to hold his child. "He could have shrugged his shoulders and sat at home on his Playstation. But he has been at the hospital every day," he said.

Chantelle and Maisie have been discharged from hospital and are living with her family in a council house in Eastbourne.

Everyone gets free healthcare in the UK and I think he'll be too young to be able to claim benefits.

He'll have to get a paper round or something.

Sick, kids shouldn't be having sex till at least 18; most are too stupid to use precautions anyway. In my school alone there were like 10 pregnant girls all italian or irish guidettes. Most people smoke pot and drink heavily here anyway so they will have retarded babies as well, it's a perpetual cycle that only can be stopped with desperate measures such as religious extremeism or nationalism. My friend Kirsty told me kids do it at age 12 in her schools bathrooms which is sick. Probably one of the reasons I hope something big takes the UK over soon weather it be Islam or Nationalism preferably Nationalism...

Lol! I laughed at the photo earlier - she looks like his mother and he looks like he hasn't got a pubic hair in sight!

That kid is 13? No way! He looks more like 8.
