Sun: Romanian Woman Became World`s Youngest Grandmother at 23
Spot a 25-year-old with a 2-year-old, and you could be forgiven for thinking that the baby is the woman`s son. But in the case of one young Romanian woman, he`s her grandson. Consider the source, but the Sun says that two years ago, at the age of 23, Rifca Stanescu became the world`s youngest grandmother. Stanescu reportedly eloped at age 11 because she was afraid her family was going to marry her off to an older man (her groom was 13). She wasn`t "forgiven" by her family until she produced a daughter a year later. The daughter, Maria, gave birth at 11. "I am happy to be a grandmother," Stanescu said, "but wished more for Maria."
"Romanian" ...  Lemme guess ... I bet she`s the kind of Romanian where you don`t actually need the last four letters of the word "Romanian."
