since there is a 21 year difference...

for mom to be twice as old:

21*2 = 42

child is 21 and mom is 42

for mom to be three times as old:

21*1.5=31.5

child is 10.5, mom is 31.5

four time as old:

21*1.333333* = 28

child is 7, mom is 28

five times as old:

21*1.25 = 26.25

child is 5.25, mother is 26.25

But we have to subtract 6 years now

CHILD IS -.75 years old (so approx 2.25 months in the womb so far) and MOM is 20.25 years old

The child being -.75 means it has just been conceived, however conception doesn't usually occour at the moment of copulation so it is unlikely for daddy to be still in union with mum.

maybe, daddy is beside her.......or.....even ....on top of her...

not to mean dirty jokes or anything else....just taking in consideration that it might be possible as well for the situation....^-^

the child is 0.75 and the dad would be at home... :/

the riddle is invalid:

the child asks for the location of his father yet the child is not born

only a child would call the father daddy (unless a sibling is asking)
