Taking to Reddit to share the dilemma, a new dad titled the post, "GF named our son after her ex, I'm refusing to sign the birth certificate until she changes it."

Yikes.

The new father explained that despite the child not being planned, he and his partner of 4 years were in a stable enough position to welcome their son into the world.

However, he also writes, "She was supposedly on the pill as neither of us like the feel of condoms but that's another story."

Like most expectant parents, he revealed how the couple argued back and forth over potential baby names until they finally settled on a name they were both happy with.

Fast-forward to their son's birth, and the dad explained, "Everyone is smiles and we're finally back home. It's time to register the birth and I need to sign the birth certificate."

But when he was handed the birth certificate, he saw to his horror that his girlfriend had titled a completely different name - the same name as her ex-boyfriend.

Shining some much-needed light on her relationship with her ex, the dad explained that she dated a guy for about 8 years and he was her "first love."

"The story is that they drifted apart and he ended it but she was still in love with him. We met a few months later and were friends before we started dating. I got the impression that she was never really over him at the start of the relationship, but it seemed she moved on after the years and went he moved back to our city 2 years ago she didn't seem the phased."

"We met him twice and there didn't seem to be anything weird going on so I assumed she was completely over him."

Realizing that the mother of his newborn son was still recovering from the birth, the father explained that he knew he could not "blow his top."

After calmly asking her about it, she apparently said that it was "just a spur of a moment thing."

"In the end, I told her calmly that I'm not signing the birth certificate until we change the name back to what we agreed. This caused a bit of a row with her and she's now refusing to talk to me until I sign the certificate and agree to the name."

Explaining that he was "at somewhat of a loss," the Reddit community was quick to offer the new father their advice...

Reddit

With most people calling for the father to get a paternity test and not sign the birth certificate until he has the results.

There's definitely something fishy going on here...

Reddit

And it's clear this poor father is in urgent need of some answers soon.

​Do you think the father should be suspicious?

Or do you think he's being a little bit unreasonable?

Nevertheless, we hope he gets the answers he needs very soon.
