So my son will be 2 years old in August. When I was 7 weeks pregnant with him I was with this guy, lets name him Tom. So Tom and I were okay, we had ups and downs and when he found out I was pregnant we talked about the options. I decided to keep it and his mom told him to move back to CA(we were in another state) with her and leave me since I was keeping the baby. Well since then he decided not to be in my sons life. Well I ended up getting back with my ex that I have known for over 5 years, lets name him, Jack. So Jack and I got back together when I was 5 months prego and we have been together. Jack has been there for my son since day 1 and says no matter what that my son is his son and I put jacks name on the birth cert because he wanted to. Do you think eventually my son should know who is real father is(Tom) eventho Jack has been his father from day one? Just looking for an opinion.

YES tell your son the truth, secrets are just a mistake. Why let this hang over your head for your whole life. Let your son know while he's very young and then keep telling him that his bio dad is Tom, this way it will be no big deal to him. You never know, Tom could pop up at anytime and want to reconnect with his son, this could be 20 years from now, you don't know. I would never have falsified the birth cert. Jack knew the truth so he should get over it and just love your son as his own even if he isn't the bio dad and his name isn't on the cert. Your son only knows Jack as his dad, and he loves him as his dad so give your son some credit and let him know the truth.
