GLAMOROUS Kelly Healey became Britain’s youngest grandmother – aged 30.
Their daughter Skye Salter, now 17, gave birth to son Bailey three and a half years ago.
And Kelly’s own mother was still only 48, making her one of the youngest great-grandmothers in the country.
Mum-of-five Kelly said: “I never expected to be a nan in my mid-20s.
“But there was no point in yelling at Skye about birth control and safe sex. What has been done has been done.
“All I could do was offer love and support. As a mother, you just take care of those things.”
The teen only found out she was pregnant when she was 36 weeks and four days pregnant.
Skye, who at the time was living in Cranford, west London, with her father and stepmother, had started having sex, so she asked her stepmother if she could wear the contraceptive implant.
Before getting an appointment at the sexual health clinic, she took a precautionary digital pregnancy test, which revealed she was “over four weeks” pregnant.
Skye recalls: “I was stunned. I had a secret feeling that I might be pregnant, which is why I suggested the test. The father is a local, about my age.
“My periods were always on and off, so I didn’t think much about missing them.
“My stepmother was very calm, but took me straight to the family doctor.
“After my last period, they incorrectly said I was probably 25 weeks pregnant.”
The doctor immediately referred Skye to West Middlesex Hospital, Isleworth, west London, for scans, and they found she had less than four weeks.
Skye says: “I couldn’t believe it. I may have had days off to become a mother. Just a few weeks before, I had been exercising and climbing up and down hills.
“When I found out so late that I was pregnant, of course an abortion wasn’t an option.
“But I couldn’t have done that anyway. When I saw my baby’s heartbeat on the screen, my heart filled with love.
“From that point on, I knew I would always come second and my little boy would come first.”
And Kelly, from west London, said she has now come to terms with being a young nan.
She said: “I act like I’m in my early 20s so being a grandma doesn’t feel right.
“My friends think it’s hilarious that I have a grandson. He is always mistaken for my son. However, I’m not sure if my mother was ready at 48 to become a great-grandmother.
“I think that also makes her the youngest great-grandmother in Britain.”
Gemma Skinner from Amersham, Bucks made headlines in October 2021 when their daughter Maizie, 17, gave birth to baby girl Larosa Mae, making her the previous record-holder for Britain’s youngest grandmother at 33.
