A woman is set to become one of Britain’s youngest grandmothers, aged just 33, after her daughter has become pregnant at 14.

Kerrie Coles gave birth to her daughter Millie when she was just 16 years old, in 2007 and welcomed her second daughter, Hollie, two years later.

Hollie is now pregnant with her own child, making Kerrie a grandmother in her early 30s.

"When she told me I cried," Kerrie, from Milton Keynes, admits. "I was scared when we first found out, it wasn't really happiness - I was terrified for her.

"I am looking forward to seeing Hollie grow as a person. I am looking forward to seeing her grow up and see how she is as a parent. I can't wait to get my baby cuddles in without giving birth."

Hollie says she’s ‘excited’ to become a mum and that she’s always seen her mum as a ‘strong role model’.

"Following her footsteps and taking her advice makes me reassured that I can do a good job," she adds.

"Knowing my mum was a young mum makes me feel comfortable talking to her about everything and knowing she can give me the best advice."

Despite this, Hollie says she felt overwhelmed when she first discovered she was pregnant in July this year, but has received support from her mum and her baby dad’s family.

"I felt overwhelmed, I was shocked and I didn't know how I was going to adjust to something so big," she adds.

"I was so relieved that mum stuck by my side, I felt mad at myself for disappointing her."

Hollie, who is still studying, is now 25 weeks pregnant and expecting a baby boy in February 2024.

"It's been full of challenges, but it feels so rewarding to get over them,” she says. "I love knowing he is there. I am looking forward to letting him know that I have his back in life. That I will always be by his side and he has an amazing family."

Kerrie is now one of Britain’s youngest grandmothers, and she joins a cohort of other young grandmothers in the UK, including Ruth Clayton who also became a grandmother at 33, and Rachel McIntyre, who became a grandmother at 34.

Recent data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), found that the average age someone becomes a grandparent in the UK is 63.

The Britain’s youngest grandmother title is currently held by Kelly Healey who became a grandmother in 2018, aged 30.

Healey gave birth to her daughter Skye when she was just 15 years old, and Skye fell pregnant when she was just 13.
