Call my boyfriend daddy?

We have been together 2 years. But he has been in my life forever lol and in my sons since he was born (my son is 3.5 yrs old).

My son asked me if he could call him daddy but I just don't know if it's too soon or when it would be ok. What do you think?

It's up to your son if he wants to call him daddy. Let him decide that.

After you get married and he has been the child's father for a few years or so. BUT that is just IMO

 How does your boyfriend feel about it? And is this a relationship that will last? Wouldn't want him to start calling him daddy and then you two break up  and then that is the end of that relationship as well

He has practically been his father since he was born. His bio dad left us before he was even born.
