Please help

Ok so I have a question. I am 26 weeks pregnant with my third child. I am in the middle of a divorce and my ex is not the father of my baby. Both of my other children, however, are to him. My question is would it be weird to give the new baby my last name which happens to be my exhusbands last name. Obviously both of my other kids have his name but I am not sure it would be weird or not. Btw the father is not and does not want to be involved. I appreciate any advice on this matter. Thank you.

I don't see y not it is still ur last name and ur other kids last names and if the other guy doesn't want the baby who cares what u name it :)

If you plan on keeping your married name as your last name then that is definitely the best thing to do.  :-)

My mom gave my brother her maiden name even though she still has my dads last name. Just an idea.

Personally i wouldn't do it. I think baby should have the biological fathers last name (even if he doesn't want to be involved) or your maiden name. It does seem a bit weird especially if you are getting a divorce.

It's not weird. It's just a name really. Since you changes your name, it now belongs to you so you can give any of your babies that name. Make sense? It's a relationship to you because that's your name now, nothing to do with your ex.
