Ever Imagined a Wedding at 11?

Moms, if you think you’ve heard of bizarre weddings and pregnancies before, then think again.

An 11 year old Bulgarian girl recently gave birth to a baby in the middle of her wedding. Kordeza Zhelyazkova found out she was pregnant two weeks before her 11th birthday and was set to marry her 19 year old boyfriend, when she went into labor during her 3 day wedding. Rushing to the hospital with her flowing white wedding dress with matching tiara on, she then gave birth to 2.49kg baby Violeta.

Kordeza spent a night with newborn Violeta then immediately changed back to her wedding outfit to resume the ceremony.

Kordeza Zhelyazkova comments, “It feels strange to be a mom and have a baby,

“I used to play with my toys but now she is my new toy. She is so beautiful, I love her. Violeta is the child and I must grow up. I am not going back to school – I am a mother now.”

Well, considering that she thinks her child is a toy, Violeta has a pretty bright and colourful future for sure.
Kordeza first met her 19-year-old husband, Jeliazko Dimitrov, in the playground of her Roma gypsy school in Sliven, Bulgaria, when he chased away kids who were bullying her.

Dimitri said “Then she arranged to meet me and asked me out on our first date. I thought she was 15. She didn’t tell me she was 11.”

Dida, the girl’s grandmother, didn’t have it any better and was pregnant at 13.

According to her, “It’s normal for our girls to have babies young. It’s our tradition. But I didn’t want it for my Kordeza – I felt she was too young.”

The odds are now stacked against Dimitrov who is now facing up to six years in prison for having sexual relations with a minor.

“I’m scared. I want to look after my wife and child. Instead I may be going to prison,” he said.

To make things more interesting, you might want to know that Zhelyazkova is now believed to be the youngest person in the world to give birth, although there are some rumors of a five year old Peruvian girl who gave birth to a baby boy in the 30’s. Either way, this will surely change our point of view about teenage pregnancies.
