Young father surprised teen mother after she was told he would leave them
When Caitlin Fladager became pregnant, she told her boyfriend, Noah, about her fears. Noah then told her that she’d have to wait and see what kind of parent he would be.
Caitlin was surprised because Noah turned out to be a loving husband and dedicated father to their children.
On November 30, 2017, Caitlin took to her personal Twitter account to clarify specifically what the situation was.
'My husband was only 17 when I got pregnant with our daughter & I was told to expect him to leave,' she wrote.
Caitlin added that when she asked Noah how he would be different than any other teen father four years ago, Noah told her: “I guess you’ll have to wait and see so I can show you"
My husband was only 17 when I got pregnant with our daughter & I was told to expect him to leave. 4 years ago, when I asked him how he would be different than any other teen dad, he said “I guess you’ll have to wait and see so I can show you” He definitely did. ❤️ then vs now pic.twitter.com/V6OQhSYbSh— caitlinfladager (@caitlinflads_) November 30, 2017
'He definitely did,' she continued.
Caitlin's post has gone viral with more than 37,000 retweets and more than 107,000 likes. Many Twitter users also expressed their happiness for her family.
'I love your family so much it’s obvious your kids are so so loved and they are so lucky to have you two as parents!' Melissa wrote.
Every month this year, my husband has taken our daughter out on “dates”. He brings her home flowers, helps her pick out a dress, and takes her out to split a dessert with him. It’s become a tradition. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/MAbuExXVtq— caitlinfladager (@caitlinflads_) November 29, 2017
Chrysoula added: 'It’s sad that people told you to expect him to leave, since it’s unfortunately common in our society. But I’m really happy that you two seem to be loving and supportive parents.'
Caitlin and Noah have been married for four years, as reported by Parenting Isn't Easy.
The young father has all kinds of lovable routines with his daughter, Arianna, 4. He still finds ways to treat his daughter and show her just how much he really loves her.
My daughter saw her daddy’s keys and asked him why he has a picture of her on them. He said “because then I get to see your face all day while I’m at work, that’s what keeps me going” 😭 pic.twitter.com/AdarsUK4SH— caitlinfladager (@caitlinflads_) November 21, 2017
Caitlin revealed in her Twitter post on November 20, 2017, that Noah keeps a photo of Arianna on his keychain.
She tweeted: 'My daughter saw her daddy’s keys and asked him why he has a picture of her on them. He said “because then I get to see your face all day while I’m at work, that’s what keeps me going."'
According to Parenting Isn't Easy, Caitlin and Noah have had another bundle of joy, a little boy named Jack, since Arianna was born.
