I'm highly upset with my husband.....my stepdaughter [23] is expecting, she told her father the sex of the baby but he will not tell me because he wants to share it with his ex wife first. His ex and I have met only twice, we have no contact with each other. But in the same sentenced he asked me to give her some $$$ to help her out, do you think I'm overreacting by being upset? My stepdaughter and I have a good relationship, she actually told me she was expecting before she told her father, now I just feel left out or pushed to the side.....

Yes, you could be right, maybe he should have just left it alone. I have a 21 year old step daughter, and my husband tends to tell me things, BUT, if he chose not to, or if he told me he couldn't tell me, I wouldn't feel offended. I know that if he felt it was his place to tell me, he would. His call though.

Thanks! My husband should have not told me that he knew, that was unnecessary. Again thanks Jodi, Little Miss Can't Be Wrong, and Deana Traynor!

Actually, I think you are over-reacting. His ex wife is his daughter's mother - maybe he feels she should know before you do. If you and your step daughter have such a good relationship, if she wanted you to know now, she'd tell you herself.

Why is it HIS responsibility to tell anyone? It is really up to her to tell. And yeah, i think it is lame he won't tell you.

Tbh your husband should tell you & his ex wife the sex of the baby at the same time. its not fair to tell your ex & then your wife. you's should be both told together. so honestly i dont think your overreacting.
