He needs to know and sooner rather than later. If you leave it to long you risk the back lash of him thinking his life was a lie. He needs to know his roots and its really important that he knows before he is hitting puberty because this is when your problems will begin. It is best to tell a child under the age of 5.
Just be ready to answer his questions about his biological father, he may wish to meet him to know what he looks like. The father figure in his life will never change but he will want to know about the side of his family that he has no knowledge of. If you dont tell him and he finds out in later life he is going to be very angry. That anger will be directed at you!
Just choose your moment carefully and then give him time to digest what you have told him and approach the subject again. Good luck!
