Are you married to the man whom she thinks is her daddy?

Does he love her and take care of her?

Are you a friend to her and close mummy?

Have you emotionally dealt with the loss of the relationship with her biological father?

I hope so coz then it is easy. First there is no hurry to break such news especially if she is still too young to understand matters of relationship.

However as she attains an age of understanding especially towards teen, i have observed that it is a good time to open up bit by bit on your life and how and when she was born, how and when you married her present daddy whom I assume genuinely loves her and is there for her emotionally. Remember its bit by bit, progressivelly for her young sensitive mind to process and ask questions. I wish you well.
