I DO think he should wait to meet this child for the petarnity test results. Since he is requesting a test you can be sure he won't stick around if the baby turns out to not be his. Why do that to the poor child? Offer a father then he bails? Granted the baby is too young to know what is going on, but still Better to wait.
