On her TikTok, Michelle Ann shows how her son is a responsible father, taking over full custody of his baby since her mother wasn’t ready to cope with the situation. That’s why they reached an agreement where he gets to keep the little girl and her mother can see her whenever she wants as well.
Many people want to have children. Becoming a parent is usually something that is planned to happen when one has economic independence or sufficient maturity because of all the responsibility it entails; this is very important and understandable. However, not everyone fulfills these characteristics since, most of the time, teenage pregnancy forces many young people to get ready to take care of a baby for the rest of their lives.
Although women are the ones who usually take on the responsibility of looking after their children when they’re born while they’re still teenagers, there are also men who do this.
On the social network TikTok, a grandmother named Michelle Ann has become known for demonstrating in her account @elleann040 that a 16-year-old boy can indeed be a good father, showing her grandson’s case as proof.
The teenager has full custody of his little daughter Athena, and despite being too young to take on tasks of enormous demands, he’s done very well. Through photos and videos she’s shared on the social network, you can see that the boy has been able to adapt well to this life change.
She’s also been a good grandmother, showing herself very happy and proud of Athena’s father. Unlike many fathers who distance themselves from their children when they become parents at an undesirable age because they consider it a mistake or something that has “ruined their lives”, she perceives this situation in a very positive way and loves her granddaughter very much. “I love you both. Your mistakes don’t define you. She is our blessing,” Michelle said in a TikTok video.
In another video on the social network, the grandmother explained why the mother isn’t present as well as why her son was the one who got custody of the baby. According to O Segredo, the girl was very sincere in saying that she didn’t feel ready to be a mother and face all the responsibilities that come with motherhood, so the boy’s family agreed with hers that they’d take care of the baby full time.
In the videos published by Michelle, she sweetly shows the baby with her father. The young girl isn’t mentioned so as not to expose her and to show her respect. The same site reported that the relationship between them is very good, and when Athena’s mother wants to see her or have any kind of contact with her, they don’t stop her because they understand her situation.
