 I was at a party this past weekend and an acuaintance had a little too much to drink and started shooting off at the mouth about how she intentionally got pregnant with her now 6 month old, she stopped taking her birth control pills.  Do you think the baby's daddy should know?  I think it's so heart breaking that someone would be tricked like this.  There relationship is very rocky (can't imagine why when it's been based on such deceit).

Doesn't sound like their relationship is going to work out anyway.  She may as well tell him.  Sometimes it's the best for the baby or children.

I think I would mind my own on this one. Yes the relationship is rock as you say buttt do you really want to be the one who wipes it out completely? Remember there is a child involved now. Its sad but I would stay out of it.

 No, it's too late now.  But it stinks that he trusted her with the birth control.  Next time he'll protect himself.

I don't think it is your place to step in and tell him but you could encourage her to tell him.
