DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner agreed to have a baby with me, but now I’m pregnant he seems agitated and distant.
I’m 31 and he’s 38. We’ve been together for two years.
His dating profile stated that he didn’t want more children.
I said it would be a dealbreaker for me, and he then said that with the right person he could change his mind.
Late last year he said he would like to start a family.
I’m now five months pregnant but he’s changed.

He used to be affectionate but now I’m lucky to get a quick kiss.
His ex keep messaging saying she still loves him.
She and my partner have a child together and he visits them every week.
He says I’m jealous when I try to talk about it.
DEIDRE SAYS: Let your partner know you are worried he is pulling away, and seek reassurance.
Unless he can promise he is committed to being a couple, and you being parents together, you may need to consider whether co-parenting would work better for you both.
If he is committed, it will be better if you accept his ex as part of your lives because of their child, but you must agree on boundaries.
If he will not commit, get support from gingerbread.org.uk, which supports single parent families.
