NTA but tell K. I would tell her because if he's going to try to be a father to your daughter without also trying to be a dad to you it's not fair and you can't bear to be around them playing happy family since he hasn't cared for you and he showed he hadn't by making that conversation with you. That was a horrible thing he did. Remind her no matter how great he is to her kids he was horrible to his first one and he might do it again if he feels he doesn't want to be a dad anymore. 💔
