As if a 15-year-old having a baby with a 13-year-old isn't bad enough, now come rumors that young Alfie may not be the father of little Maisie, who was born four days ago.
Despite the rumors, Alfie's "girlfriend" Chantelle Steadman is denying all claims that Alfie, who actually looks about 8 years old, may not be Maisie's father. She insists "there has been no one else."
Tearful schoolgirl Chantelle Steadman spoke out as TWO other youngsters bragged THEY could be the dads of newborn Maisie.
Chantelle, 15, said as she was comforted by the pint-sized schoolboy: "I love Alfie. I lost my virginity to him. We decided to start a physical relationship because we love each other. There has been no one else. He gets very jealous when I talk to other boys and I don't like him talking to other girls."
Alfie, who was just 12 when Chantelle told him she was pregnant, says "Other stupid boys are lying."
The teeny parents -- whose story shocked the world when it was exclusively revealed in the Sun -- spoke out after Richard Goodsell, 16, and Tyler Barker, 14, each claimed they bedded Chantelle as well.
Chantelle, who still wears a school uniform, said: "Cruel things have been said, but I am just trying to look after my baby and ignore them."
She told how she was besotted with the 4' tall Alfie, declaring: "We share looking after Maisie and do everything together like husband and wife. He has looked after me so well. He has held my hand and rubbed my back.
"We can't stand being away from each other. He gets upset when he is away from Maisie and me."
Her mother Penny, 38, blasted the claims her daughter slept around as "horrible." She revealed that Chantelle's room is tiny with a "very small bed that you wouldn't really call a single ... No one stayed over in it."
She also claimed the family had no idea Chantelle was even having sex with Alfie. "I spoke to them both one night and asked, 'Are you sleeping together?' Their reply was, 'No'. We had no reason not to believe them."
"I didn't even know Chantelle was on the Pill. When I found out, I was furious with our family doctor that he had not told me."
A back room of their three-bedroom public-housing home has now been converted into a bedroom for Chantelle and Maisie -- who was yesterday surrounded by pink balloons and cuddly toys including a pink teddy.
A total of six children plus the baby live in the house -- also home to two dogs, a cat and a parakeet.
Alfie lives with his family in nearby Hailsham. "I am the only boyfriend Chantelle's had -- and we've been together for two years," Alfie says. "I must be the dad."
Vowing to take a DNA test to prove it, Alfie declared: "When she found out she was having a baby, I asked her, 'Am I the dad?' She went, 'Yeah'. So I believe her."
"I didn't know about DNA tests before -- but mum explained it's when they do a swab in your mouth and it tells you if you're the dad. So, if I have that, they can all shut up. But I don't really care what people say."
Tyler Barker -- the 14-year-old who claims Maisie is his -- said: "It was routine for boys to stay over with Chantelle in her bed. But I only slept with her the once."Meanwhile Richard Goodsell, 16, said he and Chantelle had sex at least three times.
