Is it normal that my newborn son doesn’t look like me at all?

Everybody tells me he looks like me, but I just don’t see it. They say he has my eye color. But I’ve researched that and you truly don’t know your baby’s eye color until they’re older. My girlfriend and I had problems before we found out she was pregnant. She was talking to this other guy but she swears she didn’t...

Of course it's normal. I have five kids, two of them look absolutely nothing like me. In fact, one is the spitting image of one of my best friends and her boyfriend combined.

Either you trust her or you don't. You can request a DNA test. If she didn't cheat and you keep questioning her, she'd almost certain to no longer be your girlfriend anymore though. I wouldn't take well to my husband questioning me, especially after I'd flat out told him I didn't sleep with anyone else. I'd take the DNA test in a heartbeat and then sue him for everything he had when I was proven right and he was proven paranoid.

It is normal. Mine looked like neither of us but looked like an alien until he was 2 months old. If you have suspicions a DNA test wil solve it.

Get a DNA test. It's easy, just a cheek swab for you and baby, send off the kit, pay the lab fees, get your answer.

DNA test. Ask her. If she's innocent, she should be happy to make you look like a fool.

Well, this relationship clearly isn't working, regardless of whether or not your girlfriend got pregnant by someone else. You suspect that this baby might not be yours, and regardless of the outcome that is a huge red flag.

If you don't trust her then you shouldn't be with her. Meet with a lawyer to discuss custody and child support payments, then have a talk with your girlfriend about how to co=parent as single people.

If you trust her then keep your mouth shut.

Babies don't always look like both parents. My daughter looks exactly like my husband and almost nothing like me, even though she's clearly my child since I gave birth to her. Take a biology class.
