And the dad is…

Well the DNA tests are out and a guy called Tyler Barker, 14, is the father of teen slut Chantelle Stedman’s daughter Maisie. He lives at the same housing estate as Stedman.

It was revealed in March that the dad was not Alfie Patten after the boy took a DNA test. Five other boys claimed to have slept with the girl.

Barker's dad said Stedman seduced his son while he was drunk — and told how Tyler wept when he realised he could have fathered the tot.

Initially the courts ruled that the children's rights superseded the rights of the media to report the story.

But earlier this month a further judgment by Mrs Justice Eleanor King made it possible to report certain facts, including that DNA testing had established Tyler to be the baby's father.

The judge condemned the 'gross error of judgment' by Alfie's father, Denis Patten, and Chantelle's mother in thrusting their ' vulnerable children' into the media spotlight in the first place.

Regardless of who is the baby’s biological father, she was born after a bunch of kids thought they could play at adults — but seem to have been given no sense of real values and responsibility.

The news story I read from the Sun seemed to say that there were more people involved. The original story talked about her having sex with a few people, no less than 5 at a house party as well.

It's pretty dire any way you look at it!

You're right, it is dire. I read The Sun's story and thought something was up. They wrote one sentence badly, that was it.
