My ex is questioning if our baby is his: Advice?

Ohhh I’ve been in this boat and i regret my decision, luckily i was able to pay a lawyer hundreds of dollars and fix my mistake. You guys are not together and now he’s accusing you of cheating, nope he doesn’t have a right to have a say in the name. Give that baby your last name! If it gets better and he wants to get married then you can change his name. But i would also stay away from Jr.

I would say wait till baby is born and choose the name you think fits the baby!! I had my daughters name picked out from like 5 months. It changed the day I had her!!

Wait is he an ex or y’all still together? First line says ex but the end says you think someone else is around like he’s cheating?
Honestly figure out what’s going on with you and him. Don’t just change the name to be spiteful. But if you don’t like the name I say go ahead and change it.

Give the baby a name YOU like & YOUR last name. You will raise this baby forever. He will most likely not be around. It’s awful for a child to have a name connected to someone they don’t even know.

Why would he want to name a baby after him, if he is questioning if it is his? He obviously must know the baby is his, but if my partner did that with our child absolutely not. He can petition the court to change the name once those dna test results come back.

I’d tell him, I’ve been questioning whether the baby is mine also, but I won’t turn my back on the baby I’m carrying. LMAO

At the end of the day all this advice is great but you two need to sit down and have a real conversation about what the future holds abs the next steps that need to be taken

Give the baby the name you want until he pays for a paternity test.

Give the baby the name you want, chances are you will be going all the work and by the sounds of it who knows if this guy is even stable he could jus let up and leave.

Put your pride away and give him a paternity test. Unless you have something to hide you don’t lose anything

Name the baby what you want, get a DNA test and then put him on child support

I named both of my babies what I wanted to name them I had a husband with the first one but I still pick the name and then I had no husband with the second one and he was not involved in the name at all I named her what I wanted her to be which I gave her a real long name Emily Elizabeth Darlene Culpeper her first daughter she named the long name Sara Darlene Culpepper cawthorn but with her other three her second daughter was named by her husband who was not the daddy his mama her little boy which was next I think she picked out the name and then on her last daughter she picked out Jaylen but him and his mama had picked out something else and she changed it to how she wanted but she still got the middle name of her husband’s mother I myself would say pick the name you want just remember this child will have this name the rest of their life so it needs to be something that you would want and that you think your child will want when they get older

Nope.
You name your child & let him pay for a DNA test.
Especially if your state requires an Affidavidt of Paternity. If you haven’t seen a custody lawyer, I truly think you need to do now. Some states give non married parents both legal claim with no court papers. That means he can take the baby & make you fight to get him back. Avoid the drama & protect yourself.
Why should you give your child Jr when he doesn’t think it’s his?
My sons father pulled that.
So, I gave my son my name. After the DNA test, I only agreed to hyphenate it. We never married & since I dealt with schools, Dr’s, dentists, etc…having my name simply made life easier.
Now my son is 19 & he is dropping his bio father’s name. He only wants my husbands name.
