I am finishing up my Christmas shopping, I bought presents for my ex's family from our children, and a gift for him from our children.
My ex cheated on me last year and left me for the............ yeah. They have a new baby as well. Am I suppose to include her child and her when I give the gifts from our children? I've never been in a situation like this before and IDK what is........ normal.
They are not married yet, they have to wait for our divorce to be finalized.

It's not necessary, but it could build some goodwill if you're ready. The baby is your children's half-sibling, and it appears the woman will be their step-mother, so your children will be better off if everyone is at least trying to get along and be civil; any little thing you can do to make the most of a bad situation may make your children's lives a little easier. If you're not ready to do something like that, then don't; I don't think anyone will expect it. I'm sorry you've been through such an ordeal, and I hope you have a really lovely Christmas with your children.
