A woman who became a grandma in her thirties said it is the 'best thing' to ever happen to her.
Elizabeth Elliott, from Pontefract, West Yorkshire, had her daughter Chloe in her teens and assumed she wouldn't follow in her footsteps - even discouraging the idea of being a young mum.
What's more, Chloe had struggled with endometriosis and polycystic ovaries, and Elizabeth thought she may never be a grandmother.
"Becoming a grandma at 37 was the best thing that ever happened to me," Elizabeth said.
"It was just a miracle that came out of a bad situation with Chloe being so unwell.
"When she got pregnant it was a shock, but it was a welcomed shock as she's still doing her A-levels, but she's doing it from home and her baby is now in the midst of it all."
Elizabeth is immensely proud of how her daughter has taken to motherhood - though, understandably, a lot of people often assume Elizabeth-Hope is hers.
"I think her having a baby saved her life, it's something she's always dreamt of as we were worried it would never happen because of her endometriosis - it was a real blessing," Elizabeth said.
"She is the best mother to Elizabeth-Hope as she was in bad place before from being so unwell, yet she's taken to it like a duck to water.
"People are always shocked I'm a grandma. People think I'm the mum, but I point out Chloe is the mum.
"I get told I look too young to be a grandma."
Nowadays, in their 'unconventional conventional family', Elizabeth said she learns how to be a better mother from her daughter.
She explained: "I am the proudest grandma; she is a fantastic mother. Everything she has done and has been actioning is always what she thinks is right.
"When my kids were young, I wasn't the best mum and Chloe went into care. I had to work hard at being a good mum and especially a single mum.
"It didn't come naturally and I had to work hard at it."
She added: "Chloe has a completely different mothering style to me and I've learnt so much from her.
"When she got pregnant she had her head in books, reading, and educating herself and becoming a boss mum."
