Oddities in the news --The youngest great grandmother.

Rifca Stanescu Became World's Youngest Grandmother At Age 23

A Romanian housewife, now 25, is believed to be the world's youngest grandmother.

The Sun is reporting that mother-of-two Rifca Stanescu was just 12 years old when she had her first child, Maria. Despite her mother's protests, Maria married at age 10 in Investi, Romania before giving birth to her now two-year-old son Ion a year later.

Rifca, who is reportedly of Romani "Gypsy" descent, married jeweler Ionel Stanescu when she was 11 and he was 13. Still, she said she wished her daughter would have chosen at a different path at such a young age. "I am happy to be a grandmother but wished more for Maria," she is quoted as saying.

The Sun notes that Ion's birth has made Stanescu's mother another possible record holder, as she became a great-grandmother at age 40.
