The Russian influencer is trying to partner up with brands to monetize her social media account ever since she shot to fame after appearing on a talk show.
13-year-old Daria "Dasha" Rubchinskaya from the Siberian town Zheleznogorsk and her 10-year-old boyfriend is not just any teen couple. They are parents to a baby girl. Yes, you read that right.
The mum used her Instagram page to show her pregnancy journey where she posted her 20-week-old baby bump. Her stories gained a lot of attention from the world, and she became quite popular with thousands of followers on her social media page. She now believes to be an influencer.
The teen mom and her 10-year-old boyfriend Ivan came into the limelight after they appeared on a Russian TV show. The show turned out to be quite controversial after a Russian doctor made some striking comments that shook everyone who knew about the case. According to The Daily Mail, Dr. Evgeny Grekov, a urology and andrology expert, said that Ivan couldn't be a father because when an examination was conducted, they found that his body was too sexually immature to create sperms.
"We rechecked the laboratory results three times so there cannot be any mistake. There cannot be sperm cells. He is still a child. There is even no testosterone. And just to add, he still has childish sex organs. Puberty has not started. So we have a lot of questions," said the doctor. When one of the neighbors suggested the possibility of Daria having another sexual partner, the 14-year-old rejected the claim and stressed that Ivan was her only partner.
An expert psychological profiler from Moscow claimed that Daria was telling the truth. The profiler also said Ivan agreed that "Darya has never been with another man and that he is the father of her baby." However, the publicity affected the minors' lives in the worst way possible. Even though the parents of the teen agreed to get Ivan medically evaluated and show the faces of the kids on television, the revelation led to Daria and Ivan getting bullied online.
Now famous, Daria has 152,000 followers on Instagram and is trying to partner up with brands to monetize her account. All the updates of her pregnancy journey were shared on her page, as per The Sun. Throughout the pregnancy period, Daria's parents supported her. However, the police began an investigation when the hospital informed them about Daria's pregnancy.
"On January 13, 2020, the police received information from doctors of the Federal State Budget Healthcare Institution of the city of Zheleznogorsk that a 14-year-old schoolgirl was pregnant. The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation for the Krasnoyarsk Territory and the Republic of Khakassia have launched an investigation and a decision will follow," said the police.
According to a news outlet Ananova, Daria who initially said that Ivan was her daughter's father, later revealed that she was sexually assaulted by a 16-year-olf boy. In one of her posts, she penned, “How it all happened, I don’t know. It hurts to try to remember. For a long time, I couldn’t do anything. I felt scared and lonely. The saddest thing was that I could not tell anyone."
"That person is 16 years old and he is very fat for his age, and tall. The worst thing is that he lives in my town which is very small. I’m scared to bump into him on the street. All this happened in November on the stairwell. It was quite dark and no one was around to help,” she continued. The family reportedly filed a complaint and the suspect was put under house arrest after he admitted to the heinous crime. She added that Ivan accepted to be her daughter's father. “Will he accept paternity? He said he would. He loves my baby and will be her father.”
The Daily Mail reported that the teen mom previously spoke about her sexual experience on the talk show claiming that it was scary as well as a little painful. "It was just a little - and then everything was normal. It was a bit shameful, we were just hiding under the blanket. I did not think that aged 10 he can do such things...I thought that nothing would happen," added she.
Her mother, Elena, 35, took her daughter to the hospital when she showed initial signs of pregnancy thinking it was a stomach bug, oblivious about the real reason. When she found out, the initial disbelief turned into support. Ivan's mother Galina, 28, too was supportive of her son's decision to parent Daria's daughter. The mothers agreed to help the kids raise their daughter as well.
