Reasonable response from Another View. Your father cleartly does not have control over his children, or you would not be pregnant in the first place. And if the bio-father of the child has run out on you, he's not much of a man - and maybe you're not yet the best skiled at judginf the qualities of a man. and maybe even the new guy might not be as marvellous as he seems to you. And you don't mention your age, which is very relevant.
Its not clear from your mesage whether your family and father know anything at all about this. I wish the word "confront" could be banned, as i is far too fashionable and unhelpful. Confrontation is rarely useful. But of course you will need to discuss your situation with your family, ioncluding your mom and dad. They are bound to find out if somehow they haven't noticed.
Discuss with them the situation you find yourself in, mention how the first rat ran out, and how this new guy has been so helpful and supportive, and see what they suggest
