How can break the news of my pregnancy to my husbands ex?

Mommas, I need advice, my partner and I are having a baby! However, we both have kids from previous relationships. How did you guys address your new babies with your other children’s parents? I’m nervous for resentment or for my stepdaughter’s mother to try and keep her from her dad because I got pregnant. (She still has hope they will get back together.) how do I address the new baby and also let them know that just because there’s a new baby that our other children are still priorities? Did you guys ever have any issues or conflicts?

Maybe that’s a conversation for either him or the both of you to have with her. I definitely wouldn’t disclude him though.

Why do you want everyone in your business? If she has hope they’re getting back together than sorry sister he’s entertaining that.

I didn’t. She stalked me all the time and found out herself. It isnt even her business so why care what she has to say?

It’s none of her business until your baby is born and even when your baby is born it’s still not her business as long as he is good to his kids and you include them and treat them like your own it’s really not her concern your child is your child just because your child will be her child sibling does not mean she needs to be involved in any way you didn’t marry her or get in a relationship with her.

Lord I’m going through this now, my mans ex is PISSED and is even telling him to take the baby from me and come back to her… she’s bat shit crazy. Ima pray for you because this bitter baby mom stuff SUCKS… I’m due in 10 days and I’m just praying things calm down once baby is here!

I didn’t bother to tell my Ex. I think my boys told them. Maybe when you need maternity clothes ?

I wouldn’t tell them. It has nothing to do with them. Why should they be involved in your relationship.

Nobody needs to be told. Time and the appearance of a baby can inform them. If she thinks she can get him back, he made her believe it.

Why do you feel the need to tell her?! It’s none of her business and she will find out when you start showing if you have interaction with her or when the baby is born.

I wouldn’t even say anything. Just go about your business like it’s another day.

Just deal with it. We surprised our other girls, one is mom one is his, and let his daughter tell her mom. And my daughter tell her dad if they wanted

I was stalked and she found out on her own. She didnt like it so things are not good there. But we are on baby #2 now. Havent heard from her about it so whatever I guess.

Do it together and just tell her y’all are expecting. Don’t make a big fuss with her and I wouldn’t go into detail about how it won’t affect anything. Just keep it polite and simple. Actions once the baby gets here will speak louder than any words.

Also, he needs to put his foot down and let her know they are not getting back together. He can be polite and tell her, he will always care to the extent of them having a child together, but that’s it. :heart: good luck momma!
