A PREGNANT woman has asked for advice after revealing her ex's new partner is "treating her like a surrogate" and wants her twins to call her "Mama". Posting on Reddit , the 29-year-old mum-to-be explained she got pregnant by a 30-year-old she "dated for three months before he left me to go back to his ex". After realising she was expecting, the anonymous mum reached out to the dad, "who was ecstatic". "Turns out his girlfriend had fertility issues and would likely never be able to get pregnant naturally and he has always wanted to be a father," she said. But his current girlfriend wasn't so thrilled, and asked to meet with the mum-to-be. She said: "I met them at their house and (his current girlfriend) stated that she wanted to be involved in my pregnancy because she would eventually be the children’s stepmother.

Germany's ruling conservative bloc met on Sunday to discuss who would stand as the successor to Angela Merkel as the bloc's candidate for chancellor in this year's election. The two men most likely to have a shot at filling Angela Merkel's shoes are Armin Laschet , the state premier of North Rhine-Westphalia, and Markus Söder, the state premier of Bavaria. Laschet is seen as Merkel's favorite and currently leads her Christian Democratic Union (CDU), while Söder serves as the head of Bavaria's Christian Social Union (CSU), which is the CDU's closest political ally.
