A married children's nursery worker had sex with a 13-year-old boy and had his baby, a jury was told on Tuesday.

Dark-haired Leah Cordice allegedly went to the boy's home, walked into his bedroom where he was playing computer games and pulled down his trousers.

It is accused that further intercourse with the boy happened about twice a month right through the woman's pregnancy and continued after she gave birth to the baby girl.

Her husband, the jury was told, believed the child was his but a later DNA test showed that the schoolboy was actually the father.

Cordice, 20, who was studying child care while working at the local nursery, is on trial on five counts of having sexual activity with a child, three which were said to have taken place while she was aged 17 and two while she was 18.

Prosecutors told how the boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, had later said to police: "You are supposed to have sex and, like, love each other. It was just like, she just wanted to do it.

"Now I feel like she did not really care about me."

Prosecuting at Reading Crown Court, Grace Ong said: "Matters only came to the attention of the local authority, the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council, in the course of family proceedings in relation to Ms Cordice's child.

"DNA testing revealed that her child is the complainant's biological daughter."

Cordice and the boy allegedly had continued having unprotected sex on a regular basis, roughly twice a month, until the start of 2018, the court heard, a few weeks before the boy who had turned 14 years was interviewed by police.

Ms Ong told the jury the boy had been the first person who Cordice told that she was pregnant. She had shown him an app on her phone which suggested the date she had conceived was the first time they had had sex.

While they carried on allegedly having sex, Cordice had married her long-term partner and had given birth to her daughter.

Police arrested Cordice at her home in the Royal Borough on July 9, 2018 and she was later interviewed under caution.

The jury heard she had provided a prepared statement, saying: "I deny any sexual contact with the complainant.

"He has always had a crush on me and would always make inappropriate remarks and do inappropriate things such as grab me and annoy me. We did not have sexual contact."

The trial continues
