He's starting his adult life far too early, but he's lucky to have you. This is a beginning, an unfortunately early beginning, but not an end, and I hope he realizes that. I'm sad that he's going to miss what should be a part of what we've come, in modern times, to value as a part of his childhood years, but he can do this with your help. I hope he can do his part to assure her, especially if she is of similar age, that she's not alone. A baby is no easy trial, at any age and the village has become devalued while never more necessary. Congratulations my friend.
