  • I find it hard to believe that he did not know she was pregnant. I can tell you that my husband knows if I am 2 days late in my cycle. The article says that the baby boy joins 2 other children which tells me he has been though pregnancy with her before….no way he did not know.

  • I love stories where babies are okay it gives me faith for my little 1 month old 22 weeker Josie
