Shem Davies is a British media personality who first grabbed the media attention for stepping into the world of fatherhood at the age of 14 only. He went to jail when his daughter was two years old for murdering a guy who stopped him from stealing. And after years, in 2014, his own daughter walked in the same shoes when she turned 13 and got pregnant with her boyfriend, who was the same age. This made Shem the youngest Britain grandfather (at the age of 27 – source) and her former partner the youngest grandmother – who was at the time settled with another man and was living a blissful life with two other children.

Davies took over the world of social media and news by storm again when his daughter became pregnant at the age of 13 with her boyfriend, who was the same age. She made the news public on her FaceBook account, and when she was 5 months pregnant Shem begged him to abort the baby, as he thought her daughter will go through the same thing.
But with time, he understood that by emotionally supporting his kid, he could provide her with the living his parents didn’t when he became a father. And following that, he accepted and later became extremely happy for being a young grandparent.
Shem Davies is still quite popular in the British Empire for making it to the list of young parents and grandparents at such a young age.
