The hardest thing you had to do when you were five years old was probably decide which toy to play with first. Otherwise, life was pretty and simple back then.

Not so for five-year-old Lina Medina, a little Peruvian girl who, in 1939, gave birth to a baby boy, becoming the world’s youngest mother on record, according to The Sun. How did it happen?

The Sun reports that when little Medina’s abdomen began growing at age five and she complained of stomach pains, doctors thought she had a large tumor. But tests revealed that she was actually seven months pregnant, and soon after, she had her son, Gerardo on May 14, 1939 — a completely healthy, 2.7kg baby boy.

Medina had to give birth via Caesarean, because her pelvis was too small for a natural birth.

Doctors discovered that Medina’s sexual organs were completely mature, and diagnosed her with a condition called precocious puberty.

So who would impregnate a five-year-old? Police arrested Medina’s father because they believed he committed incest, but released him after they couldn’t find evidence.

To this day, Medina—who is still alive at 85—has never revealed the true identity of Gerardo’s father, or even talked about giving birth at age five.

As for the boy, he grew up thinking Medina was his sister rather than his mother, but learned the truth when he was 10 years old. He died in 1979 at age 40 from a bone disease.
