At 33 years old and mother to two children, Kerrie Coles was taken aback when her 14-year-old daughter, Hollie, announced she was pregnant. Kerrie accompanied her daughter to the gynecologist and supported her child during this challenging situation. "I found out about my pregnancy when I was 16 years old," Kerrie recalls.

Kerrie Coles is on the verge of becoming one of the youngest grandmothers in Great Britain. She is only 33 years old, and her daughter Hollie, just 14, is pregnant. The baby's due date is February 2024, the Daily Mail reports.

A Future Mother at 14, The Soon-to-be Grandmother Is Eager

The British woman is no stranger to young motherhood. She was 16 when she gave birth to her eldest daughter Millie. Hollie was born a year later, which has helped acclimatize her to the prospect of childbirth.

"Following her footsteps and heeding her advice convinces me that I'm capable of doing an excellent job," Hollie confides to the tabloid.

The Coles family lives in Milton Keynes, Britain. The news of Hollie's pregnancy initially shocked the mother.

"I started crying out of sheer fear, they weren't tears of joy. I was terrified for her," confessed the 33-year-old woman, who eventually came around to the idea of her daughter's premature motherhood.
"I'm eager to see Hollie evolve as a person. I'm looking forward to seeing her embrace motherhood and how she handles it," she added.

14-year-old Hollie insists she will heed her mother's advice, often commending her for being a "strong role model". "I'm thrilled about becoming a mother. I regard my mum as a role model. She's an amazing parent. She had a child at a young age, so I feel more at ease discussing my condition with her," explained the soon-to-be mum.

These recent events stirred memories in Hollie's mother about 2007, the time when she gave birth to her first daughter at Milton Keynes University Hospital. "I was 16. I discovered I was pregnant during my school exams. Despite this, I managed to finish my education with strong family backing," she unveiled.

"When Hollie was born, I wasn't on good terms with her father. We split up, yet I cherish the memories from that time. We went on a joint vacation; I ensured my children had a good life. They are now teenagers and we're very close. My daughters are like friends to me," she added.

Hollie was initially apprehensive about her mother's reaction. "The news of the pregnancy was overwhelming. I didn't know how to prepare for it. My mom's support eased my tensions. I was actually upset with myself for thinking her reaction would be different," she commented.

"We visited the clinic and found out that the pregnancy was more advanced than we anticipated. That's when I assured Hollie of my unwavering support. Seeing that tiny baby on the screen was a poignant moment," Kerrie summarised the experience.
