I’m pregnant with my ex-boyfriend’s baby. When we slept together I told him I was on the pill which, of course, I wasn’t. He’s also having another baby with his other ex-girlfriend and it’s due this month.
I know that I kind of tricked him into getting me pregnant and I do regret that.
How do I break this news to him? I have no idea how he’s going to take it. Please help.
You didn’t “kind of” trick him, you did trick him and I can tell you how he’ll take it – not well.
I think you’re about to learn a hard lesson – just because you say you’re pregnant doesn’t mean your ex will drop everything and fall in love with you again.
I really hope you want to have this baby and feel ready to take on parenthood because I imagine you’re going to be bringing this child up alone, and that’s tough.
I think you should call your ex, explain that you lied to him and aren’t proud of it, but that you’re keeping the baby because that’s what you want.
Tell him you’re not expecting anything from him unless he wants to be involved, but wanted him to know.
What else can you do?
Then start focusing on your child.
