Alfie Patten, the 13-year-old British boy who left the world gasped in disbelief when news broke last February that he was the alleged father of a new-born baby, has been told the child is not his.
Despite believing that he had made 15-year-old Chantelle Stedman pregnant, DNA test proved Alfie wrong. Alfie, looking much younger than a teenager himself, would have been only 12 when baby Maisie was conceived.
DNA tests were called for after several teenage boys claimed
Maisie could be their daughter. But, before tests could be carried out, British High Court ruled that the rights of the
teenagers took precedence over the Press's right to report the case.
The Court also banned the reporting of any new information concerning Chantelle, Alfie and baby Maisie, following a report that said Chantelle had been called a 'slut' by four people she
did not know.
Alfie was 'extremely distressed' when he was told he was not the baby's father in March, the judgment revealed. Yet, there are another six potential fathers. Trainee chef Richard claimed he had sex at least three times with Chantelle around the time she became pregnant.

Tyler said: 'I slept with Chantelle about nine months ago and I'm really worried I could be the father. I hope it's not me.
'All my mates have been teasing me about it but this isn't funny, it's serious.'
