A new mom in Orange County will in all likelihood be celebrating Mother Day behind bars after she told police that the father of her baby is her teenage daughter's boyfriend.If it's true, not only is that totally skeevy, it's against the law since the boy is only 16. Neighbors noticed that Mayra Gonzalez, 32, of Santa Ana seemed to be spending a lot of time at the home of her oldest daughter's boyfriend while his parents were away. One of them confronted the boy, who told them what was going on, according to City News Service. A neighbor reported what was going on to police.

Gonzalez confessed and told Santa Ana police that she was in love, according to CBS Los Angeles. Now police are waiting for a paternity test.

Gonzalez is accused of having sex with him six times (and giving him oral sex twice) between July and December of last year, so she faces eight felony counts. If convicted, she could face seven years and eight months in prison and have to register as a sex offender, according to the Orange County District Attorney's Office.
