* In W.E.B. Griffin's OSS series, one of the major characters is the son of a Hollywood star, who, if one believes her official studio biography, gave birth to him at thirteen. However, this is entirely due to the studio claiming that she's younger than she actually is due to the fact that she always plays TheIngenue, and they need to make her look as if she's young enough to plausibly play that role (They try not to draw attention to the fact that she has an adult son - who is only legitimate because she married the father for one year to avoid any possible scandal connected to the pregnancy - whenever possible).

In RealLife, a girl can conceive as soon as she has her first menstrual cycle, generally around 11 or 12 years old... although in rare cases this can occur at an even younger age, such as ''five years old''.[[note]]Lina Medina, the girl in question, is an example of a case of extreme precocious puberty i.e. puberty at an absurdly young age, and reportedly had started getting her period while she was still an infant. She is the youngest mother ever in recorded history, though she was too young to fully remember the pregnancy and her parents raised the baby as her brother. While the girl's father was eventually cleared of rape charges, there's still the FridgeHorror question of who the father ''was''. The ''Literature/GuinnessWorldRecords'' dropped the "Youngest Ever Mother" category held by Medina out of exactly these ethical considerations; there was also the fear that somebody somewhere was going to try to '''beat''' this record.[[/note]]

[[AC:Combination]] * Konata's mother Kanata from ''Manga/LuckyStar'' looked incredibly young throughout her life and (sometimes) acted accordingly. This fact gave fuel for some interesting speculation about the preferences of Konata's father Soujirou.

* In the ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'' episode "The Wrong Mrs. Boynton", Miss Brooks unwittingly offers to masquerade as Mr. Boynton's mother. This is in spite of the fact she is actually a couple of years younger than her LoveInterest. ItMakesSenseInContext.

* Due to poor translation rather than poor math, an NPC in the first ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork'' says that ten-year-old Lan's grandfather, the famous Dr. Tadashi Hikari, is forty-five years old. Yikes. Later games in the series clarify that Tadashi ''died'' at forty-five (of a genetic heart problem), before Lan was born.

** A more subtle but still prominent example would be with Harry's parents. Going by the birth and the death dates, Lily Potter gave birth to Harry when she and James were 20, and both of them died when only 21. While not a large stretch, it is jarring, especially when one sees how old they look in the movies. Rowling does acknowledge this later on.

Going by the birth and the death dates, Lily Potter gave birth to Harry when she and James were 20, and both of them died when only 21. While not completely out there (they were crazy for each other by the end of school, and James had both a large stretch, good job out of school ''and'' a good bit of old family money that Harry himself later inherits, so providing for Harry wasn't a challenge), it is does still feel jarring, especially when one sees given how old they look they're portrayed as in the movies. Rowling does acknowledge this later on.
