The UK woman discovered she was pregnant at 15 and last year her 17-year-old daughter announced she would be having a child as well.
A model has revealed she has become a grandmother at the age of 34 – yet still gets asked for identification when she goes to the pub.
UK woman Rachel McIntyre had her first child after finding out she was pregnant at 15 and, last month, became a grandmother after her 18-year-old daughter gave birth.
She said she had some reservations about being a grandmother so young, knowing the difficulty of being a teenage mother, and often gets mistaken for her grandchild’s mother.
Rachel, who is an OnlyFans model and swinger, told Caters News: “My daughter’s only just turned 18, and I was very shocked when I found out she was pregnant.
“But once it sunk in, I started getting excited. I knew that I was obviously going to support her as well.
“People don’t even believe I’m my daughter’s mum. They look at me in complete shock when I tell them. They’re like, ‘Wait, are you not sisters? When I say I’m a granny too, it’s even more of a shock.’
“I always get asked for ID because I look so young. It’s annoying, but it’s a bit of a compliment too.”
Rachel, who also has a 10-year-old daughter, also revealed it was stressful watching her daughter experience labour, adding it was a horrific birth but her granddaughter was a well behaved baby.
“She doesn’t really cry. She just makes noises when she’s hungry and eats and sleeps,” Rachel said.
Rachel, who can’t wait to get back into the gym after a recent tummy tuck in Turkey, said the biggest upside to being a young gran is that she is young and fit enough to enjoy an active relationship with her granddaughter.
She said: “I’m looking forward to getting into the gym to get my body looking the best it’s ever been. The biggest upside to being such a young granny is that I’ve got a lot more energy.
“When my granddaughter is a bit older, I can take her out to places and I won’t be tired like older grannies.
“I don’t think there’s any downsides to being a granny at 34.
“I’ve not been judged for it yet, but it will probably happen. I’m not bothered though. People will criticise anything these days. Life is all about being happy, and as long as you’re happy, then you’ll go far.”
She said that despite looking more like her granddaughter’s mum, she would never want to be called anything else.
“I want to be called granny. I would never want to be called just Rachel. She’s my angel.”
