  • congratulations! he has made a decision to be with you regardless of you carrying another person's baby. that speaks to a lot of character. perhaps his parents were instrumental in who he is. you might ask him what he thinks... he knows them best.

  • Oh, wow?! Are you serious about this guy? If you're not, why bother meeting the parents at all? If you ARE serious, then y'all are gonna have some explainin' to do. Set a time to meet with them on neutral ground, and already have in your minds what you'd like to say. The neutral ground will hopefully prevent any outbursts of sorts, etc.

  • What? I'm confused. You are telling the parents of someone who's not the father? You should reword this please.

  • Are you the same person that just poted this almost exact question less than an hour ago? If yes then then the PP is right. Grow up. If you're not I'm sure you'll get the same advice the other girl got. it's not your place to tell them, it's his. If he loves you and wants to be with you then he needs to explain that to his parents and they can take it or leave it. If he wants to pursue a relationship with you and does'nt care about hte baby not biologically being his then they will either respect hat or they f**k off until they do.

  • Well I would say it should be fairly easy but since its not his kid you should just be as honest as possible and if your still going to work it out with your SO they need to get used to it. Good luck

  • Does he know hes not the father??? if he does know that, then explain to them that he is with you in this but he is also NOT the father.

    if he doesnt know, Ugh i wish i knew you so i could tell him and them before you lie to them. Thats disgusting.

  • If you are serious about eachother and see a future with him, just step up and tell them. As long as your guy is supportive, honestly it doesnt really matter what his parents think of you. If they don't agree then its their loss.

  • This is going to be tough and it will be a reason for them to not like you at all. Im not saying this is how its going to be, but its more than possible. They could be afraid of you just looking for a guy that will support you and the baby which isnt even his.

    But if they trust their son and believe him that he loves you and whatever, then your BF should be the one telling them... that he met you and likes you and what not and that you are pregnant. AFTER he told them that he will tell you if they want to meet you or not. if not, then who cares, if they do then thats great

  • I think he should tell them before you meet them. They'll probably think they're going to have a grandchild, and that will just be awkward. Try to think about how they're going to feel getting it sprung on them that way.

  • what is so bad about her boyfriend not being the father. i was friends with mine when i got pregnate with another guy. then he started coming around more and when my baby was 2months old we decided to be with each other. hes been a great father and its not horrible. so all you mothers that think you got a perfect life get off your high horse and quit judging.
