I feel so bad for the relatives of this man and the relatives of theidiot woman he has impregnated. Not to mention the poor baby. People like this can be a continuous drain on the finances of their relatives. I have two in-laws who each have a sibling like this. They drain their parents dry with cries for money, then when the parents die, they start in on their siblings, who, having watched the baloney for years, don't fall for it.
My advice, keep as close an eye as you can on the welfare of the child, and if you find any indication of neglect report them to child protective services. Other than that, the man and his foolish woman are adults and can't be helped unless they decide to change their ways. I wouldn't be guilted into anything with him, because doing for him will only make you an enabler in his dysfunctional behavior. If people aren't held accountable, they tend to not change.
