Matters Of The Heart With La'bos: How Do I Tell My Fiancee That My Side Chick Is Pregnant?

I remember how it all started, nobody could say I was forward, for I took my time before giving in to my feelings for Anna.
She is an IT student newly recruited to work under me at my place of work.

I wasn't really a fan of the banking job but the Nigerian economy gave me no choice, I am a banker and I am successful. In fact I am the boss of my department.

Anna's arrival was not designed by fate or anything as far as I know, I didn't like her initially but I could see that she liked me.
She was always trying very hard to please me and it annoyed me. In fact, on more than two occasions, I cautioned her to stop buying me lunch.

Give it to Anna, she could be persistent. She didn't stop, and somehow, I began to like her. I had a serious relationship but I felt I could manage my office fling and my real life.

Anna turned out to be more than I bargained for. She was sweet and all that, she didn't even make it known in the office that we were an item. Her maturity was top notch.

Until she got pregnant.
She told me when she was twelve weeks. I was momentarily brainless as I could not think of anything to say.

When I finally gathered my wits, I called her and begged her to get an abortion, she told me it was too late and she was scared.
I have been begging for a week too to no avail. She is adamant.

I can not marry her. I told her
She knew I had a serious altar-headed relationship with Iyanu my girlfriend of four years and she didn't mind.
What I don't get is why she is trying to do this to me.
My dilemma is this, she has refused an abortion; fine. I will not marry her, she knows.

My girlfriend's birthday comes up in two weeks, I intend to propose to her...
Do I tell her about my pregnant side chick or keep it a secret?
What if someone tells her?
Please don't advice me to marry Anna. I won't. I love Iyanu, I only strayed...
