This is an interesting, yet bizarre, weird and unbelievable fact! But you've got to believe it as it is documented.

youngest person to give birth, the youngest mother in the world and in
the history of humanity is a 5 year old Peruvian Girl. Her name was Lina Medina. See photo below.

Lina Medina, seven and a half months into pregnancy

According to Wikipedia:
Lina Medina
(born September 27, 1933) is the youngest confirmed mother in medical
history, giving birth at the age of 5 years, 7 months and 21 days. Born in Peru, Lina was brought to a hospital by her parents
at the age of 5 years because of increasing abdominal size. She was
originally thought to have had a tumor, but her doctors determined she
was in her seventh month of pregnancy. Dr. Gerardo Lozada took her to Lima,
Peru, prior to the surgery to have other specialists confirm that Lina
was in fact pregnant. A month and a half later, on May 14, 1939, she
gave birth to a boy by a caesarean section necessitated by her small
pelvis. The surgery was performed by Dr. Lozada and Dr. Busalleu, with Dr. Colretta providing anaesthesia. Her case was reported in detail by Dr. Edmundo Escomel to La Press Medical, along with the additional details that her menarche had occurred at 8 months of age (or 2 1/2 according to a different article[1]),
and that she had had prominent breast development by the age of 4. By
age 5 her figure displayed pelvic widening and advanced bone maturation. Her
son weighed 2.7 kg (6.0 lb/0.43 st) at birth and was named Gerardo
after her doctor. Gerardo was raised believing that Lina was his
sister, but found out at the age of ten that she was his mother. He
grew up healthy but died in 1979 at the age of 40 of a disease of the
bone marrow.
