Five popular footballers who became fathers as teenagers

Football wonder-kids receive a large amount of money relatively early in their lives which allows them to take on more responsibilities than their age mates.

While it is not a crime to be a father at a young age, the emotional stress of being a father at a young age can affect a person's mental strength.

However, these players have proven they can weather the storm as they have all had successful careers today.
