Hi
Thanks for using JustAnswer. My name isXXXXX will do whatever I can to answer your question
In fact he has no rights whatsoever unless or until the child is born.
The choice is yours and you do not have to tell him what decision you make

Thank you for the answer it feels like he is trying to push me into something telling him as he said he had a right to know

Hi
He has no legal right to know at all - but given that if you have the baby then he will be financially responsible for maintenance it would be polite to give him warning!

You cannot sop him from telling her anything - but you do not have to tell him anything either
