It’s not easy to have lots of children, especially if you’re impoverished or raising them alone.
In Argentina, a 17-year-old girl named Pamela Villaruel has had a total of seven children — and not all of them have the same father.
What’s remarkable is that Pamela, unlike most girls in her situation, was not afraid to say that three men have already impregnated her.
In 2008, news outlets and social media sites were able to get a hold of her so she could tell her story. Pamela was touted a courageous young woman because of what she went through.
According to her, before having a baby, she was just your typical girl. She excelled in Math and talked about clothes and pop bands with other girls.
Pamela hails from Leones in Corboda Province, Northern Argentina and got pregnant at the young age of 14.
She said that it was foolish of her to think that it was “real love” because the guy who impregnated her seemed attached to someone else. She was right. She found out that he also had a boyfriend — not a girlfriend, as she initially thought. He was the father of Pamela’s first child.
In her next relationship, Pamela thought that he was the one. Two years after having her first child, she bore 4 more children — two sets of twins.
By the time she was 16 years old, Pamela already had five children. Instead of thinking about boys, worrying about her studies, or being concerned about the latest trends, she had five mouths to feed.
Pamela was allegedly a “battered” girlfriend by the time her second boyfriend left her. She told him to leave her and their children because of his abusive behavior.
When her story went viral on social media during that time, she was staying with another guy, who eventually became her third boyfriend. Pamela then got pregnant again.
Currently, she has already given birth to a total of 7 children from 3 different men.
She said that she was living with her mother who supported her throughout the ordeal.
