Brit to be a grandad at 30
A JOBLESS 29-year-old is set to be one of Britain’s youngest GRANDPAS.
Dad-of-three Ged Fulton was just 14 when he became a dad.
But now his 15-year-old son Sean is expecting a tot with his 18-year-old lover.
And Ged will be 30 when the baby is born in November, making him one of the youngest grandparents in the world.
The former customer service worker said last night: “It hasn’t sunk in yet. I’m getting teased by my mates — but I’ve got no plans for a pipe and slippers yet.”
He said Sean was “showing a lot of maturity” and planned to get an apprenticeship to help support the tot.
Ged, of Greenock, Inverclyde, admitted he was devastated when he got Sean’s mum Audrey Hill pregnant at 18.
The couple have since split.
He said: “I’m a bit disappointed Sean has basically done the same thing as me. But I’m probably the best person to advise him.
"I think he’ll be a good father.”

This is not surprising thanks to two phenomena
1) the ceaseless attacks on the nuclear family as a concept
2) the welfare system in Britain which rewards the lazy, and cushions the irresponsible.

That's not a new concept to me, I've met 30 year old grandmothers before.
