DEAR DEIDRE: I HAD a one-night stand with a girl a year ago and I’m convinced the baby girl she has given birth to is my daughter.
I had a night of unprotected sex with a friend. She has a long-term boyfriend but they were rowing at the time. She told me a few months later that she was pregnant but was adamant I wasn’t the father.
She maintains it’s her boyfriend’s but the dates don’t add up. I’m 24 and she’s 23. We’ve barely been in contact as I didn’t want to upset her.
DEIDRE SAYS: She has chosen to say her boyfriend is the father and he has accepted this too.
Claiming to be her baby’s father would cause a huge amount of distress, while they are together at least.
She may feel differently if they split up. If she agrees, and DNA tests prove you right, are you up for maintaining your child and being an involved dad?
It’s a serious commitment.
