It is amazing to see the smile on the faces of parents when they see their beloved childbirth. However, their feelings are unknown to the youngest father in the world because it is hard to believe that a child can truly understand how much has changed in his life with the birth of another child. Let’s talk about the little boys who became the youngest parents on our planet.
Who is the youngest father in the world?
Many people search for the ‘youngest father in the World Guinness Book of Records.’ We also tried this inquiry, but their official website that shares all the most famous records returns the unlucky answer about no such title being available via the website search.
There is no need to worry about no ‘youngest father’ being found in the history of the World Guinness Book of Records.

This page en.wikipedia.org doesn’t contain information about all the known occasions, but it has some curious details about some of them. Can you imagine that there is more than just one youngest father in the world now between 11 and 14 years old?
On Wiki, you will learn that one of the known 11-year-old fathers is from New Zealand, he became the parent together with a woman who was 36 years old, 7 years ago. The other youngest father in the world now is also an 11-year-old boy but from Mexico.
But these 11-year-olds are not the record-breakers. Are you surprised to learn more?
How old is the youngest father in the world?
Some boys play with cars, put puzzles together, play with their favorite cartoon characters, enjoy video games, school at the age under 10 years old… but some set up shocking records that could interest the World Guinness Book of Records. They become the youngest fathers in the world ever.
As noted by discoversoon.com and some other sources, the youngest father in the world ever was 9 years old. His name is unknown, but the story says that he became a daddy back in 1910. The mother of his child was even younger. She was just 8 years old back then. They both lived in China.
The history is silent whether these two parents are still alive or not, but they were believed to have had four children in their family life which started too early.
P.S. The world is constantly changing. Moral norms, social practices and believes changing. We are influenced by movies, new technologies, longer lifetime, and popular trends. And while it is forbidden to begin relationships with underage kids and little girls/boys, shocking situations do occur, and we most likely don't know about most of them.
Who knows, maybe a Chinese 9-year-old boy isn’t the youngest father on our planet ever, but it is the only reported situation.
Now you know the answer to the question: "How old is the youngest father in the world?" Are you shocked by this information or not?
