Thirteen year-old British boy isn't the father

Alfie Patten is distressed over the DNA test results

A boy from Eastbourne, East Sussex, is said to be “distressed” over a DNA test proving he didn’t father a child at age 12. Alfie Patten told reporters in February that he thought he had made his 15-year-old girlfriend pregnant, but a DNA test result made public after a judge’s ruling has proven a 15-year-old boy is the father of Chantelle Stedman’s baby.
