A woman who had a baby aged just 13 has said she’s sick of rehashing her story year after year.
Gabbie Egan took to TikTok to respond to a comment on one of her videos which read: “Wait, you had a kid at 13? What’s the story?”
In response, Gabbie sighed in another video: “Yes I had a kid at 13 years old”, The Sun reports.
“I feel like every year I have to readdress the fact I had my son at a mere 13 years old.”
She continued to reveal the story itself, explaining that she began dating a 16-year-old when she was 13, and ended up getting pregnant.
“This is a picture of my son and I back in 2014,” she said.
“I was 13 in this photo and he was a newborn – January 23, that’s his birthday.
“And this is me and my son now. I am 22 and he’s gonna be nine next month.”
And the father of her child still has very little to do with him.
“He got me pregnant then deuced out and pretty much hasn’t been a part of my son’s life ever since,” she said.
“Don’t be a teen mum ok, because your baby daddy ain’t gonna be sh*t. Literally my son needs two rounds of braces. He just got his first round of braces off – $4000.
“I was like, ‘Baby daddy are you gonna split it with me?’
“And he was like, ‘I’m not gonna pay for a kid I don’t see’.”
“’I won’t pay for a kid I don’t see’, that’s kinda why you have to pay!” one person wrote in the comments section.
“Y’all literally grew up together,” another added.
“It’s crazy that the BD parents didn’t encourage him to be a better father,” a third mused.
As someone else commented: “As a 7th grade teacher, I seem to have the convo a LOT with my girls that if he’s trying to be your friend when he’s in high school, it’s a red flag!
“So many of them try to prey on my young 12/13 year olds.”
