About

Medically confirmed as the youngest woman in history to give birth; she was just five years and seven months old at the time of the birth.

After her family noticed her stomach bulging, they took her to a doctor believing that it was a tumor, but tests showed the girl was pregnant.

Trivia

Medical tests revealed Lina was ovulating from 8 months of age, due to a developmental disorder, but the family did not allow many more tests to be performed on her or her child.

Family Life

Her son, Gerardo, a healthy boy, was delivered via Caesarian section. He was raised as Lina's younger brother until he was told the truth at age 10. She later married Raul Jurado.
