The Big Bang created space. Put two dots on a small inflatable balloon and then inflate it. Those dots move away as the balloon inflates. If one dot radiates light it can be received by the other dot, even though both dots were "created" at the same time and didn't even move on their own (neither our galaxy nor our star system have engines, though they may have relative speeds.)
This also puts the limit to how far we can look in the Universe (you can't see things before Big Bang, and distance = c * t.) So 13.75 ± 0.11 billion light years it is. This also means that farther objects are unreachable and unknowable to us at this time; the light from them is still traveling toward us.
There is more discussion here.

How would that necessarily be so? If light emitting objects existed further than 13 billion light years away yet have existed longer than 13 b. years then the light could be reaching us now. Say; an object 20 b. light years away that has existed for 30 b. years. No?
