A woman has shared how her world suddenly turned upside down after her partner confessed that he has five other children in another country.
Sharing her story on Mumsnet, the mom from the UK explained that she was 18 weeks pregnant with their third child when he sat her down to tell her the truth.
“I’m so bl***y mad I don’t even know what to do! My partner isn’t from the UK, he’s from Malta, but for most of his adult life lived in Norway and Denmark, always tells me he just loved London and that’s why he moved here six years ago,” she wrote.
The woman said that her partner, 51, always mentioned how he always wanted to have a big family but never got the chance to have children because he was busy with work.
“HE HAS FIVE CHILDREN. Yes, that’s right – he has five kids back in Denmark, ages 24, 22, 21, 20, and 18. The four eldest are in London this weekend and want to see him for the first time in six years!” she wrote.
The mom went on and said that she would send him to a hotel as she never wanted to see him again.
“Why would he do this? I don’t even want him near our kids,” she continued. “What’s he going to do not see them for six years and traumatize them too?? What do I do now? We can’t recover from this right?”
Mumsnet users were also shocked by the situation and the man’s actions. One commented: “That’s insane! How long have you been with him? Could he still be married too?”
Another said: “Wow that’s an awful lot for you to take in. You must be in shock.”
A third added: “You can’t believe anything he has told you now to be honest. It’s too much to take in. I think if it was me, I would leave him and fight for full custody of the children. Regardless of your income, he should support them financially.”
