13-year-old boy not a daddy!

Over the past few weeks there's been a ton of chatter over 13-year-old Brit Alfie Patten supposedly fathering a child. Shortly after the birth of his alleged baby, speculation started that he might not actually be the dad, and now that theory has been confirmed through a series of DNA tests. Relief, right!? Perhaps not for everyone. Little Alfie says he is "devastated" by the news that that he "adores" the baby girl. It's also being reported that the girl's family used him to make money off the press from the scandal. Oh, the humanity. If I were him, I would be livid that this Chantelle chick and her fam put him through this emotional rollercoaster. For a 13-year-old, he's handled the entire situation with considerable maturity. Then again, maybe he was in on the scam all along.
