What was his reaction? What did he say? And how did your family took the news? And how did your family reacted when you told them that your baby daddy wasn't going to be part of you and your baby life?

Mixed emotions my mom told me I had options I told her I was 26 and pregnant and needed to step up, my dad was silent and my sons father said thank you for not aborting . He hasn't been any part of his life so I guess for him that part didn't matter

My family didn't like his father so they were relieved. They vowed to ale his life where he didn't miss having a dad around

I got pregnant with dd1 on her father's bday. No clue how I knew that night, but when I told him he said I wasn't funny. When I proved it 7 weeks later, he insisted on abortion but finally came around when she was 6 weeks. 7 years later, I got pregnant with dd2 on the same weekend her dad and I got engaged. He knew I was pregnant before I did (denial), so he was excited.

We were married, so it was fine but shocking.

Reaction:  Disbelief on both our parts (I'd been told for 10 years I couldn't have kids)

He said: "It's probably wrong" and when the doctor confirmed it he said "What are we going to do".  This was almost 12 hours after I went to the doctor, so my response was "I'm keeping it, I don't know what you're going to do." and I may have told him to go to hell.  I never saw him again either.

Family:  Very supportive...mom was VERY excited.  We view her as a gift from my sister who died three years ago.  Since she died we've had three new girls come into the family (one by marriage, two new babies).

Reaction to him leaving:  um...overall agreement that I was better off.

I was pissed, he was ecstatic. He told his mom and they both told EVERYONE they possibly could. Then I finally got away and they harassed me begging me not to abort no matter what.

my son is now 2and a half and his dad has never seen him and doesn't pay his child support.

Well..both of our kids were planned...so he was happy..
My family was happy...he was a part of our lives from the start...took very good care of us until I left...and is still a huge part of our lives and an awesome dad...we're just not meant to be together as a couple.

Well, I was married when I told my baby daddy I was pregnant.  It was a shock to him considering we were married for nearly six years when I finally did get pregnant.  I remember my ex was very happy and excited.  I don't remember what he said exactly.  Perhaps something like "Really?!"  I  called my mom and dad first and told them 'Hi grandma and grandpa".  We did the same to my ex-IL's.  My baby was the second grandchild with my parents and the second with my ex-IL's.  Their first was with my ex and his first wife.
