Tressa Middleton became pregnant at age 11 and gave birth at age 12 after being ʀᴀᴘᴇᴅ by her own brother.
The beginning of life was not easy for Tressa Middleton. She became pregnant at the age of 11 and became the youngest mother in the UK. She became pregnant after being ʀᴀᴘᴇᴅ by her brother, then 16 years old. Tressa gave birth in 2006 at age 12. She had a girl. And despite the entire sad situation in which the girl came into the world, Tressa fell in love with the little one.
For two years, Tressa took care of her daughter with the help of her mother. At this time she kept the identity of the child’s father a secret. Until in 2008, she revealed that the baby’s father was her brother. And it was decided that the baby would be given up for adoption. She was adopted when she was two years old.
Tressa was ᴅᴇᴠᴀsᴛᴀᴛᴇᴅ to ʟᴏsᴇ custody of her daughter. “My heart was broken when they took my daughter from me. To this day, I sleep with the teddy bear that was hers. I never stopped loving my daughter. She is still the first thing I think about in the morning and the last thing I think about before I go to sleep.”
The situation was so difficult that Tressa became involved with ᴅʀᴜɢs and ᴀʟᴄᴏʜᴏʟ. Only at the age of 18, she managed to overcome these ᴀᴅᴅɪᴄᴛɪᴏɴs.
Now, at 28, Tressa has managed to get back on her feet. She is engaged and has a daughter with her fiancé, Darren Young. The little girl was born in October last year. “I felt pure joy when my second daughter was born. But I also felt guilty that Arihanna was with me and my other daughter wasn’t. It breaks my heart to know that my second daughter will not be living with her older sister. But I still have hope that one day they will meet,” Tressa said in an interview.
