A pregnant girl has insisted her 10-year-old boyfriend is the dad of her unborn baby after a doctor who examined him said he is too young to father a child.
Daria, who is 13, said she had no other partner after Dr Evgeny Grekov stated Ivan is too sexually immature to have produced sperm.
The young couple, who live in Russia, appeared on the popular On Air Live show with presenter Andrey Malakhov where the results of a medical examination of Ivan was broadcast to millions of viewers.
The youngsters were not in the studio when the results were made public.
Dr Grekov, a urology and andrology expert, told viewers Ivan could not be the dad.
He said: "We rechecked the laboratory results three times so there cannot be any mistake.
"There cannot be sperm cells. He (Ivan) is still a child.”
He added: "He had barely started adrenarche – the early stage of sexual maturation.
"There is even no testosterone.
"And just to add, he still has childish sex organs.
“Puberty has not started. So we have a lot of questions.”
The Rossiya 1 channel show – called ‘Father at 10!?’ – highlighted a neighbour in Zheleznogorsk, a nuclear production city in Siberia which is closed to outsiders, suggesting the girl had another older partner.
The male neighbour in his 40s said: “Obviously, someone else did this.
"They just want to hang it on the boy now.”
Denying she had an older partner, Darya said:
The teenager said: "It was Vanya's idea [to have sex]. But I did not mind.
“He closed the door leaving the key in the lock, so his mum could not open the door.
“It was scary a bit, that it would be painful. It was just a little – and then everything was normal.
“It was a bit shameful, we were just hiding under the blanket.
“I did not think that aged 10 he can do such things… I thought that nothing would happen.”
Psychologist Denis Davydov said when Darya was interrogated on whether she had had anyone else, she gave a “sharp rejection”.
“This gives me the right to say that she had no contacts with other boys or men, she only had Vanya as a partner,” he claimed.
The boy – who gave her roses when they started dating – was asked by Andrey when he realised that “when you kissed Dasha and so on, that it could lead to such consequences?”
He replied: “I did not think about this.”
He was asked if the child could be someone else’s he said: “This cannot be.”
The girl and her mother want to keep the baby but it is too early in the pregnancy for a DNA check on the child, which will be completed later.
Darya’s mother Elena, 35, said: “She confessed that she was with Vanya…and had a good time once.
"I cannot understand how this could be? Just wake me up, I cannot believe it."
The boy’s mother Galina is convinced he is telling the truth.
"I believe to my son. That he is the father. I understand that he himself maybe doesn't realise what happened.
"He is just a child, no matter if he feels himself older.
"He told me that they came to our flat, Dasha suggested it, and they had [sex] only once."
On the show, Darya asked him in a low voice: "Are you scared?” He replied: “Very.”
She told him: “No worries.”
The boy and girl attend different schools and started dating in February, they said on the show.
It was aired as the Russian Investigative Committee has begun a preliminary check into the case.
