A mum-to-be was shocked to be told that her new baby wouldn’t be invited to her brother’s wedding.
The pregnant woman wrote a post on Mumsnet explaining that she was due to give birth around the date of the big day.
Her brother’s wedding has already been cancelled and re-arranged twice due to the pandemic, but the latest date meant her baby would be just weeks, or even days, old.
Speaking to her brother over Zoom she explained that baby might be too young to attend, only to be told that the little one wasn’t invited due to “unfortunate timing”.
What would you do in this situation? Tell us in the comments…
The woman explained: "I was devastated.
"My mother told him and my future [sister-in-law] the reality of having a newborn and how we can’t be separated and if there were issues the baby would be taken out.
"My brother looked embarrassed but future [sister-in-law] said the baby would be a distraction from the wedding with aunts and cousins naturally wanting to see him."
But, his sister did feel sorry for him due to the impact of the coronavirus on the wedding, reports the Mirror.
So, she told her brother that she would attend the wedding alone and her husband would drop into the reception to congratulate them.
Which was when she found out her hubby wasn’t invited anymore either.
The woman said: "He was only invited as he is my husband and they don’t want him popping in and causing a distraction.
"I am so upset it is actually hurting. There is no backstory. We have all always got on.
“There has never been any hint of either of them being anything other than down to earth."
She asked Mumsnet posters: "Would you be upset? Would you say anything?"

Almost unanimously people told her they would not attend.
One wrote: ‘Say as space is obviously tight you’re giving up yours and then send a card.”
“[Sister-in-law] is worried and jealous over a baby,” added another. “So let her have her day.
“Your brother will see how silly she is being even if he doesn't voice it."
While a third added: "Honestly, you'll probably feel so exhausted in the first few weeks/months of caring for a newborn, the last thing you'll feel like doing is dragging yourself out of the house to attend the wedding."
