11-year old girl gives birth to baby on her wedding day
The couple met on the playgrounds of Kordeza's Roma gypsy school in Sliven, Bulgaria, where Jeliazko rescued Kordeza from bullies mocking her. The two soon started to date thereafter and Kordeza got pregnant within a week.
"I haven't had sex education classes and I didn't know how to get pregnant. I'd never had a boyfriend and I'd never heard of condoms."
"I used to play with my toys but now she is my new toy. She is so beautiful, I love her. Violeta is the child and I must grow up. I am not going back to school - I am a mother now."
Jeliazko is not allowed to live with Kordeza because he is under investigation by the Prosecutor's Office for having sex with a girl under the age of 14. He could face a jail sentence of two to six years in prison.
"I thought she was 15. She didn't tell me she was 11."
"Jeliazko said: "I'm scared. I want to look after my wife and child. Instead I may be going to prison. I made a mistake but I am not going to apologise for that because now I have beautiful Violeta."
