Wife won’t let husband meet baby after he misses birth to cheat on her
Dive right in! Like the weather, the Daily Star’s FREE newsletter is a scorcher
A new mum took to Reddit for advice after her husband missed the birth of their first child.
As she was so fuming that her partner didn’t turn up at the hospital on time, she wouldn’t let him hold the baby until the following day.
This caused some problems in the relationship, so the anonymous woman asked the internet “am I the a***hole for not letting my husband meet our first born child?”
Many thought she was overreacting when they heard about her act of revenge – until they found out the reason the man missed the labour.
Redditors were horrified to discover the bloke was cheating with his “best friend” at the time of the birth.
They support the woman’s decision to divorce her other half, with many of them leaving her comments of support.
The dramatic Reddit post reads: “My husband has this best friend, Anna. They've been friends for a long time and dated years ago, mutually deciding that its best for them to remain friends. I've had no problem with this relationship until now.
“On the day that I gave birth, Anna's brother got into a car accident. My husband got a call from her in the middle of the night and asked him if he could drop her at the hospital her brother was at (an hour away from us) since she was too scared to drive.
“My husband agreed, told me quickly while I was half-asleep and rushed out.
“A few hours later, I had contractions and called my husband. He didn't pick up after multiple tries so I gave up and called my Dad, who drove me to the local hospital (12 minutes away).
“I was so scared of giving birth alone since I've had about three miscarriages and one stillborn.
“My husband promised me that no matter what, he'd be there for me. Guess what? He wasn’t.”
The post continues: “We called multiple times while I was in labour and when he finally picked up my dad's call when I was giving birth, saying that he'd misplaced his phone in the chaos, my dad informed him that no matter how fast he drives anymore, he's going to miss the birth of his child.
“Well, my husband took that as ‘he's already screwed up, so it doesn't matter when he shows up at this point’, so when he FINALLY came, our daughter was about five hours old and I'd already moved to the maternity ward.
“When he came, I refused to let him see our baby (did let husband hold and play with baby after discharge) because I was so high on emotions and was shaking when I saw him and didn't want it negatively affect my time with the baby.
“I wanted her birth to be a happy time and I was already struggling to feed her.”
The new mum allowed her partner near their child the following day – and she decided to give Anna’s brother a call to find out how he was doing in hospital.
When she rang Anna’s brother, she found out her husband was having an affair with his best friend.
She said: “I called him and he said that he was doing well and will be out of his wheelchair soon.
“He asked about me and the baby and how I was doing with the split and if I was okay with my husband and… Anna.
“I can’t believe I was so oblivious. I thought they had an emotional thing going on because of this and when I confronted my husband, he denied it and said me and our baby were his priority and he made a 'mistake' and he was being dumb…
“I will be moving back home and filing for full custody. I don’t want my baby growing up to be like her father or Anna. He can be fun dad or whatever it is he wants to be.”
