The father of a 13-year-old’s newborn baby has been revealed as a teenage boy, after a DNA test was carried out.
Darya Sudnishnikova was 13 when she became famous after insisting on primetime TV that she was made pregnant by her pre-pubescent boyfriend 10-year-old Ivan Vanya.
Police say a DNA test has revealed the father to be a teenager, who Darya later accused of raping her.
Ivan – now 11 – was with Darya as she left a clinic in Krasnoyarsk, Russia with baby Emilia, born on 16 August.
The couple smiled at the hospital door as their two mothers walked along side.
But reports in Russia citing law enforcement say police DNA tests on her daughter Emilia have shown the father is a teenage boy who Darya, now 14, had later accused of rape.
The boy was believed to be 15 at the time, now 16.
After doctors and experts claimed that it would be biologically impossible for Darya to be made pregnant by Ivan, she alleged that she was raped.
She said she invented the story about Ivan because she was too embarrassed to admit the rape, which she says took place in her home town of Zheleznogorsk.
Darya – who has become a teenage social influencer with 474,000 followers – said in May this year: “It is a painful issue for me.
“I could not move away for a long time and the pain still remains in my soul.”
To a question ‘Who is the father?’, she posted: “It was a rape.
“I cannot tell how it happened, because it is painful to recall.
“For the long time after that accident, I could not do anything, it was scary and lonely at the same time.”
She described the attacker as “very fat for his age. And very tall.”
News agency NGS24 reported citing law enforcement source that a DNA test win the baby showed that the father was the teenager “who the schoolgirl had accused of rape”.
TVK channel carried a similar report.
The Russian Investigative Committee has not commented on the case.
The schoolgirl posted a video showing her with her daughter, who she says she is raising alone.
“I keep losing weight, now I’m 57 kilograms,” she said.
“That’s why I just do not eat, I have time to eat only late in the evening.”
Replying to comments she posted: “First of all I do not care about my body, whether I am fat or not, chubby or not, slim or not.
“I do not eat because I have no time.”
The baby “doesn’t let me go, that’s all.
“And no one else can sit with her, my mum is ill, father at work, brothers… well there is nothing to say about them.”
She previously revealed that her mother Elena Sudnishnikova, 35, the baby’s official guardian, is suffering from cancer.
She earlier posted that Ivan “does not live with me, he stays overnight sometimes.
“At 16, he will take over the fatherhood, but it depends on how everything goes on between us.”
