My grandkids won't be happy when they hear my son's young wife is pregnant

DEAR DEIDRE: MY grandchildren are only just getting back on track with their dad, my son, after he divorced their mum. Now his new wife is pregnant and I’m worried how they will react to the news.

My son is 58. He left his wife four years ago for a woman half his age. He has two grown-up sons and daughters.

They were devastated, especially when he then remarried, and they didn’t speak for a long time.

Lately things gradually seem to be getting better. He had his young grandson visit recently and I know how happy that made him.

And they all socially distanced together for my 80th birthday last month. Understandably his partner is over the moon about the baby.

He says he is pleased but I wonder how he will feel in ten or 20 years. He’s lost all his old spark and I rarely see him smile nowadays.

DEIDRE SAYS: There are goods and bads to being an older dad and it could be he’s not smiling so much around you because he’s picking up on your negative feelings.

Your grandchildren have started to heal the rift with their dad and may be delighted about a new baby in the family.

Tell him you are there for him. Staying positive yourself about the changed family dynamic will help you and your grandchildren. You can find support if needed through Family Lives (familylives.org.uk, 0808 800 2222).
