Late last week an AP story about a 9-year-old Mexican girl giving birth quickly went viral - on The Daily Weekly and elsewhere. But as it turns out, according to ABC News the girl was actually 12 or 13.

Of course, while that might seem like an improvement, in actuality the story became even more disturbing and depressing. While originally it was believed the young girl was impregnated by her 17-year-old boyfriend, ABC News now reports that authorities believe the girl was impregnated by her 44-year-old stepfather.

According to ABC News:

The girl, identified as Dafne, was impregnated by her 44-year-old stepfather, according to Lino Gonzalez Corona, a spokesman for the Jalisco State Prosecutor's Office. The stepfather is under arrest after admitting to having his first sexual encounter with Dafne in April 2012 and a second in June.

Dafne's mother was unaware of the sexual relationship, according to Corona. She thought the baby's father was a 17-year-old boy whom her daughter had met at a local market. She learned of the pregnancy in November 2012, two months before Dafne delivered a healthy baby girl by C-section Jan. 27, 2013.

And also according to ABC News:

Doctor Raymundo Serrano, chief of gynecology at Zoquipan Hospital, and his team decided to insert a contraceptive implant to avoid another pregnancy. He described the implant as a small, flexible rod placed just under the skin in the upper arm that releases progestogen and works for up to three years.
