*Update to 9 Year Old Girl Who Gave Birth in Mexico

Stepfather of '9-Year-Old' Girl Who Gave Birth Admits to Fathering Baby

The 9-year-old girl who allegedly gave birth last month in a Mexican hospital may not be as young as originally reported. After authorities dug a little deeper, it's now believed Dafne is at least 12 or 13, or even as "old" as 15, says one doctor.

It was Dafne's mother who first claimed her daughter was impregnated when she was 8-years-old by her 17-year-old boyfriend, but it's becoming more and more clear that may not be the case. The mother's husband, Dafne's 44-year-old stepfather, has admitted to having sex with the girl on a couple of occasions and has revealed he's the father of her child.

He is now in police custody and will be charged with child molestation for the alleged rape of his step-daughter.

The circumstances under which Dafne's birth certificate were obtained are shady -- her mother filed for one in 2011, claiming Dafne was born in 2003, making her 9. The validity of that claim is still under investigation.

Dafne's story continues to get sadder, though, believe it or not. Neighbors told MailOnline that Dafne's mother may have lied about her daughter's age for two reasons: One, because Dafne was never in school, and her mother wanted to enroll her daughter for the first time -- a feat more likely accomplished if her daughter was 8 or 9.

Or two, because Dafne's mother, an alleged prostitute, wanted to sell her daughter as a 9-year-old in the sex trade and was motivated to shave off a few years since, apparently, there's a bigger prize for girls younger than 12 or 13-years-old.

Anyone else sick to their stomach right now?

To say Dafne's story is heartbreaking or gut-wrenching is an understatement. Even though she may not have been 8 when she was impregnated, is 12 or 13 any better? Doctor's still deemed her body too young to handle a vaginal birth and had to perform a C-section. This girl was still, in fact, a child, no matter how you calculate it.

It's hard to find a silver lining to this story, but I suppose the fact that the stepfather is behind bars is a small one, and the fact that international light has been shed on Dafne's story is perhaps a slightly bigger one.

Because the more people invested in learning more about what happened and how to consequently keep this child who had a child safe from further abuse and danger, the better.

Do you think it makes a difference whether she's 9 or 12?

Poor girl. I hope the step-father goes away for a long, long time.

Update the original thread, do not make new threads as it clutters up the section unnecessarily.
