A teenager who is still dealing with the shock of her dad’s infidelity says she’s being labelled ‘immature’ for not wanting to accept his ‘affair baby’ as a sibling.
The 16-year-old girl says she’s always had a close relationship with her mum, who is 40, calling her a ‘truly amazing woman’. The teen said a year ago she found out her 42-year-old father was having an affair with a 26-year-old.
“She is only 10 years older than me. Her and I have less of an age gap than my dad and her have,” she explained on reddit.
“My mum, even though she was upset, she has never trash talked my dad. I am so upset though it would have been one thing for him to ask for a divorce instead he cheated with someone much younger than him.”
She explained that her dad and his new partner moved two hours away, and in the year that’s passed, she only seem him a handful of times.
“I act pleasant when I see them, but things are awkward and my dad and I’s relationship is clearly strained.
“So my dad’s affair is pregnant. He called me yesterday and asking if I wanted to go to the gender reveal party next weekend.”
“I told him no. He asked why I said I didn’t want to talk about it. He kept pushing me going saying how the baby will be my little sibling.
“I got annoyed and went off. I told him how it would have been one thing for him to get a divorce from mum but you didn’t have the guts for that so instead you have an affair. So no I’m not going to accept your little affair baby as a sibling. He called me an immature brat. He later texted my mum complaining about how immature I am and how I need to grow up and accept that (his mistress name) and the baby is going to be part of my family. Am I the a**hole?”
