A DNA test has revealed that ‘dad at 13’ Alfie Patten is NOT the father of baby Maisie. The story rocked England seven weeks ago when baby Maisie Roxanne was born to 15-year-old Chantelle Steadman, who claimed her boydfriend, 13-year-old Alfie was the father. A media circus insued when six other teenage boys from Eastbourne England came forward claiming they had slept with Chantelle and that they might be the baby’s father. (See below for Alfie’s dad appearing in a devil’s mask to the press, or his mother facing truancy charges for letting Alfie miss months of school.)
Chantelle (15) had insisted that she was in love with the babyfaced boy and that he had taken her virginity, but six other local boys came forward soon after the baby’s birth and said that they had also had sex with her and could be Maisie’s daddy. Alfie had been excited about the prospect of fatherhood: “I take responsibility and will look after baby Maisie like a grown up father.”
The teen agreed to a DNA test to answer the question for once and for all. At first, little Alfie wasn’t even sure what a DNA test was and had to have it explained to him by his mum. “I didn’t know about DNA tests before but mum explained it’s when they do a swab in your mouth and it tells if you’re the dad. So if I have it, they can all shut up.” His mum Nicole, 43, added at the time: “It had not even crossed Alfie’s mind whether Chantelle had not been faithful to him. He’s absolutely devastated that these lads say they slept with her.”
It has now revealed that Alfie is not the dad. His world seems to have fallen apart – he has reportedly been with Chantelle for two years, although the apparent evidence that she has been cheating on him may change that. It has also been rumoured that Chantelle’s mother Penny (38) had told her daughter to say that she had been a virgin until she slept with Alfie and that he was the only possible father.
So now the question is who is baby Maisie’s real daddy?
