After the birth of his second child, a man leaves the delivery room and barely looks at his newborn

A man walked out of the hospital room after seeing his son for the first time. His wife thought he was struggling to come to terms with being a father for the second time, but something else went through his head.

The woman confessed that her husband supported her throughout the pregnancy and helped her a lot. He also took a week off to be by her side during the birth.

But the moment he saw his son, something strange hit him. He left the delivery room without saying anything to his companion.

Before getting to the heart of the matter, the woman told that she had married her husband three years before and the couple had known each other for three years before they got married.

She admitted that their relationship always had trust issues, but she also accepted that no one was perfect. So she had to compromise. But what happened after she gave birth made her think about her situation. She explained:

“But obviously now with this situation, I feel like I missed a big red flag.”

AP (Post Author) gave birth to her first child two years ago and said her husband has always supported her. She also mentioned that their daughter looks like them both.

She found out the truth after a while.

They had planned their first pregnancy, but it was not the second. However, the AP’s husband still took care of her, as he did during her first pregnancy.

When the AP’s husband walked into the delivery room to see their newborn son, things took a different turn. She noticed that he walked out of the room after looking at the little one. She remembered:

“I wasn’t really focused on him at the time, but it tormented me until I saw him again.”

When her husband visited her with their daughter, she noticed that he ignored her and the baby during the duration of the visit.

The AP noticed his strange behavior, but let it go and thought it must have something to do with him becoming a father again. However, she discovered the truth some time later.

One night, the AP finally asked him why he was behaving so strangely. He told her he would send her an email about it because he was too angry to discuss it.

The AP was stunned, but she decided to wait for the email. The next day, she checked her inbox and found an email from her husband.

She opened it and finally understood what was going through her husband’s mind all the time. She said the man was black, she was white, and their newborn baby was white.

His complexion made him suspect that the boy was not his. He also demanded a paternity test and told her he would not trade with her or their son until he confirmed he was the father. She shared:

“It really blew me away.”

The AP decided not to tell anyone so as not to tarnish her husband’s image, but she hoped he did not mean what he said.

The woman thought her son looked like her husband and was annoyed that he doubted his loyalty. She also admitted that she did not want to do the paternity test, but she did not know how to respond to his email without being rude.

She was worried he would get divorced if she said anything bad to him, so she posted her story on Reddit and asked other users what to do in this situation.

kallisti_gold suggested that the AP agree to the test and then made an appointment for a pair consultation to prevent problems in the future. Dans_malum_consilium replied:

“They had confidence issues, which means they’ve probably been wrong before.”

The user believed the man’s suspicion was justified, while another net user with the username GoingAllTheJay also asked the AP to let her husband take the paternity test.

The user also advised her to work on their relationship to find out why her husband assumed the worst. Meanwhile, Semimedium asked:

“Does he know that babies of mixed race are not always a perfect mix of the two skin tones?”

Most netizens believed that the paternity test would solve the PA’s problem, although the couple should also work on their relationship.

Do you think the man’s suspicion was justified?

Some platform users pointed out that the man’s suspicions were irrelevant, as babies do not always inherit both parents’ complexion. But other people defend his suspicions as valid. What do you think ?

Would you accept the paternity test if you were an AP?

Most network users advised the AP to accept the paternity test to prove her husband was wrong. However, the AP was not willing to honor her husband’s suspicions by agreeing to the test. What would you do if you were the author of the post?
