A man has shared how he believes his son’s newest friend could actually be his too.
For years, he had had no idea for years that might be a possibility.
The desperate man asked for relationship advice on Reddit about his baby’s secret situation.
In his story, he said that he met an alumnus from his school and they started a relationship.
Unfortunately, he finds out she has a boyfriend, and this causes them to break up.
At the same time, the man and his ex are also mending, and just a few months later, she is pregnant.
7 years on, this man’s son has made a new friend at school who is just a little older, and it turns out his mother is the same former student he hooked up with before. there.
The woman will avoid him when they pick up the kids from school, but he says this isn’t why he’s suspicious as encounters with exes always tend to be a bit awkward.
Instead, the man was more troubled by how similar the two boys looked.
“The way they smile, the hair, the color of their skin, the shape of their eyes and nose is very similar to mine.
“And everyone in my family always says my son looks exactly like me when I was a kid,” this person wrote.
The man also added that he didn’t see the other child’s father around and that the woman’s Instagram page had no indication of who he was.
Because things don’t end well for both of them, he doesn’t know if he should approach the woman about his potential son.
“I hate to think I have a kid out there that doesn’t know about it but if it’s going to hurt him more I’m not sure.”
Many people answered that the best way to know if the child is theirs is to ask the woman.
One user wrote: “If you want to know for sure and you’re prepared for the consequences then you have to talk to her,” while another added, “You should just ask. Meanwhile, me. going to make popcorn to keep you updated.”
And that’s exactly what he did.
In the second post, he dropped a big bomb: he IS the father.
He said: “I asked [the mom] make an appointment to talk alone.
“When I asked her to be clear, she started crying. And she said when we broke up she found out she was pregnant but thought her boyfriend at the time was the father.
“But she revealed the cheating to him and they did a paternity test after she gave birth. He wasn’t the father so he left.
“She didn’t want to say anything to me after that because we weren’t in contact anymore and she knew I didn’t want to see her again so at the time she thought maybe I would turn my son down.”
He admitted that he was mostly upset by the fact that he missed out on his son’s life. But he is working to overcome it.
“She looks like she really regrets it and so far she’s agreed to all I’ve asked for: paternity testing for starters, where we have proof. I’m his biological father, want to spend time with him, let him know I’m his dad,” he continued.
“None of this is easy. The kids seem to be having a better time adapting. My son just thinks it’s great to suddenly have an older brother. But I think when the excitement comes along. If that goes away, there will be more things to deal with.
“He still comes to my son so they can hang out or I meet up after school. I guess it’s hard to see him. And know we still have a long way to go to build a relationship. really. Wish we could” have had that since the beginning.
“At least this hasn’t affected their friendship. I hope it continues as I become a part of his life and he becomes a part of ours. .”
