Aged just 12 years old, this is Britain's youngest mother holding her newborn baby

THE girl who became Scotland's youngest mum at just 12 last night revealed she is trying for another baby.

Tressa Middleton, 16 - whose identity we exclusively revealed yesterday - is desperate to fall pregnant again after giving up her daughter for adoption.

Tressa - who has a history of self-harming, boozing and drug abuse - says she wants to start a family with her new lover Darren Young, 24, and has even picked baby names.

The teenager said: "I think my life is on track enough now that I can be a good mum. And I know Darren will be a brilliant dad.

"I would like a wee boy this time. I like the name Leo, and Darren likes McKenzie and McCaulay for a boy and Sophia or Brianna for a girl.

"I do worry about losing another baby but the social work can't do anything if I'm not doing anything wrong.

"I don't smoke hash and I don't drink much now. If I'm out with my pals then I might have an alcopop, but I don't drink Buckfast any more.

"If I fall pregnant I will definitely give up the drink completely."

We revealed yesterday how Tressa has vowed to turn her life around in a bid to make her three-year-old girl - who she is no longer allowed any access to - proud of her.

Tressa, of Dumfries, even plans to put her dreams of joining the Army on hold if she has another kid.

She said: "I would delay it for a couple of years. After that Darren could look after the wee one and we could get a house on the base."

Jobless Darren said he hopes to one day marry his teen lover.

He said: "We've talked about it. It depends if we get jobs. I'd marry her now if I had the money."
