An 11-year-old schoolgirl in Bulgaria is said to have probably become the world's youngest mother after she gave birth to a baby on her wedding day.

According to British tabloid the 'News of the World', Kordeza, who is barely old enough to start her senior school, went into labour during her marriage to her teenage boyfriend Jeliazko Zhelyazkova.

In fact, she was wearing her flowing white dress and tiara when she arrived at hospital and gave birth to Violeta. But after spending the night with her newborn, Kordeza changed back into her wedding dress and nipped out to finish ceremony.

"I'm not going to play with toys any more, I have a new toy now," the 11-year-old bride, who fell pregnant within two weeks of her 11th birthday, was quoted as saying.

And the Zhelyazkova family couldn't be happier for their child bride, the youngest girl ever to give birth in a city where 13-year-old mums are routine, the report said.

One small problem--it isn't Bulgaria anymore, because there are NO Bulgarians left there. Turks are NOT Europeans, by any stretch of the imagination. Anyone who follows that ignorant mad dog Mohammed is an ignorant retard.

After seeing her photo I find it hard to believe that this girl is really only 11.

It's a good thing she started young, this way she can give birth to another 15-20 gypsy babies. No one can accuse the gypsies of not doing their share to alleviate Bulgaria's shrinking population. Do it early, and do it often.

And then you are wondering why educated, competent Bulgarians are leaving the country? There is nothing but gypsies and mutri left in Bulgaria. Boyko is the ruler of a gypsy empire. lol
