9-year-old ‘Dafne’ gave birth to a baby girl in Mexico last month, ABC News is reporting.

The 9-year-old Mexican girl, under the reported name of Dafne, gave birth on Jan. 27 in Jalisco, Mexico, according to the report.

Dafne and her child are both healthy and recovering at home, Dr. Enrique Rabago, director of Zoquipan Hospital, said at a press conference on Wednesday.

Doctors performed a C-Section “due to her young age and the fact that her body was not ready to give birth.”

The search now continues for the baby’s 17-year-old father who could face criminal charges for having a sexual relationship with the 9-year-old.
