I got my girlfriend pregnant and we are both 21 years old, How can I tell them that I’ve impregnated her?

I got my girlfriend pregnant and we are both 21 years old.

I’ve completed my studies and graduated in May, while she’s doing her second year. I wanted to invite her to the graduation ceremony but was scared because I haven’t told my parents that she’s four months pregnant.

How can I tell them that I’ve impregnated her?

It’s good that you want to do what is right by your girlfriend.

Unfortunately, there’s no easy way to approach this with your parents.

Do you perhaps have a family member whom you trust and can talk to - an uncle or an aunt would be ideal - and who could approach your parents with you and tell them about the situation? The sooner you do it the better, so that your girlfriend’s family can also be in the know regarding their daughter.

Good luck.
