A woman has been left baffled after receiving a message on Facebook from a woman who her boyfriend cheated with and got pregnant a year ago.

The woman, who shared her story on Reddit, says that she had suspected that her boyfriend was cheating, but she had no proof.

Finally, one day she was able to find that he was in fact cheating and she had a conversation with the other woman, who said she felt horrible that she was dating someone's boyfriend, but also unashamedly added that she was pregnant.

So, "I congratulated her and ended my relationship with him, and they began dating."

A year later she was single, had a better paying job, and was living her life when her ex's girlfriend messaged her - asking her to buy nappies and other items for the child, because she found out that her boyfriend was also cheating on her and he'd left her for another woman.

Now single with no job and no support, she was approaching the poster for financial assistance.

The Redditor told her that she was not comfortable helping with the baby – because "she was sleeping with my boyfriend, and continued to sleep with him after I caught them."

"She told me I was an a**hole and the baby is "partially mine" being we were both with him."

After reading that message, she says that she blocked the pregnant woman.

Most readers replied that the mom-to-be was crazy for asking her cheating ex's ex girlfriend for help, instead of asking her ex-boyfriend, and agreed that she did not do anything wrong by telling her that she can not help her as the baby is not hers.

What are your thoughts on this? Would you help your cheating ex's babymama?
