I think the fact that you are all such great friends and should be celebrated and is actually really amazing. I bet there are many many people out there that would envy your relationship with your ex, it sounds like you are both good people that have co-parented well and now your Fiance gets on with your daughters Dad, and likewise. To me that seems pretty rare, and quite frankly really cool.

This shouldn’t come up, no need to go into the teenage past. With families being so mixed it is generally accepted. More importantly ask your daughter how she feels. These are all her parents and if anyone is “weird” about it it would be her. If she is accepting and supporting then go for it. If she is hesitant hear her out.

If it works, it works.  I think it would be lovely for your daughter but it is what your comfortable with.

I think that’s lovely! 🙂

You’re forever linked by blood to this man and there’s no getting away from that; he’s one of your oldest friends and your FI’s best friend so I say go for it!
