Default Telling older children...worried!

Having just recently entered the ranks of poly after being mono all my life, I wonder: How does one tell their teen and pre-teen children about secondary partners? We mostly see our secondaries when my kids from a previous marriage are away visiting their father and that's allowed me to avoid having to explain things. The kids know we're friends, but not that the relationship is a loving (and sexual) one.

I worry about what their father might think, and most of all, I worry the kids will be shocked/disgusted by the news...
