My oldest son is twenty and just informed us his girlfriend is pregnant. adult content

My oldest is twenty, still in college living at home. He just informed us his girlfriend is pregnant. I am still adjusting to the news, but I am concerned about telling his grandmother (my mother, who is 85). She is very old fashioned and I dont have the heart to drop this bombshell on her. Any suggestions on how to approach the subject and tell her. Thanks

  • What are the plans going to be between ds and his gf? I would wait till all the plans are in place, then go from there. Do they plan on getting married, living together, keeping it, not keeping it? No sense on telling grandma until all the ducks are lined up.

  • Make him tell her. It is his responsibility.

  • She might take it well. My grandma is old fashion and when I told her I was pregnant a=when I was 19 she expressed her disappointment but she was happy at the same time. She wasn't happy I didn't marry my husband right away but she put her feelings aside. She now loves her great grandchildren. It may be different for me because I was always a grandmas girl. She has always favored me over all of her other grandchildren.

  • Make your son tell her. It is his responsibility. He isn't a minor.

  • Thank you for your comments, my son isn't planning on getting married until after college, and securing a job.
    So hopefully when his plans are all set his grandmother will handle the situation the best she can. Thanks you for your support.
