All of my kids are by my husband. I have a friend that had a little boy by her then boyfriend. She later got pregnant and had a little girl by her current boyfriend. Both of her kids took their father's last name. Since her oldest will be starting school soon, she is really embarrassed that they kids have different last names. I do not think this is something to be embarrassed about but would like get you guys opinion. I have however heard of women that have five or six children with 3 or 4 different fathers. Would you be embarrassed at this point? If you were not married and having a baby, would you give your baby your last name or the father's last name? How do you explain to your children why they have different last names? Read the below article at the below link and tell me if you agree or disagree.
