According to text messages between Stephen and a friend, the teen believed that Avila had miscarried and didn’t know he was going to be a father until she was arrested for dumping the baby.

The Astorga family was hired a lawyer to help them get custody of the baby, who is currently in the care of the New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department at a hospital in Lubbock, Texas.

Astorga, 50, said the family is doing everything they can to give the baby, who they’ve named Saul, a home.

He said the news of the baby and him being a grandfather had come as a huge school. “When you don’t know and then all of a sudden someone calls you? It’s like wow.”

Astorga added: I’d like to tell you a lot of things. I’m a God-fearing man. I just can’t comment right now.”

Stephen had broken up with Avila in August 2021. The teen claims the mother of his child said she suffered a miscarriage.

However, Saul was born in the bathroom of his grandparents’ home in Hobbs last Friday.

Avila claimed she had no idea she was pregnant, only realizing something was wrong when she experienced abdominal pains.

The mother has been charged with attempted murder and a felony count of child abuse. She is due to appear in court Wednesday in Lovington, New Mexico for a detention hearing. 

Avila told cops she panicked after giving birth. She had wrapped her newborn son in a bowl and drove him to the Broadmoor Shopping mall in downtown Hobbs.

It was there that she was seen on camera throwing the baby in a dumpster behind Rig Outfitters. She hopped back in her white Volkswagen Jetta and drove off.
