Oh boy...

When it comes to teenage pregnancy, the gender who usually gets the most attention is women. Girls have to deal with the physicality of pregnancy, usually have the last say on whether to abort, adopt or raise the child, and shoulder most of the responsibility. The dads? Well, they usually slide out of the picture at one point or another and if they do stay, they are celebrated for doing the one job that should be expected of them. Ah, the double standard.

Because a teenage pregnancy is almost never expected, a teenage boy hearing the news that he soon will be a father evokes many different reactions. A user on Reddit asked the community, “Teen fathers, what did you do when you found out she was pregnant and how did you deal with it?”
