My Partner starts a new job next week but I'm Pregnant and due in 2 weeks?

I'm pregnant and due in less than 2 weeks. At my partners current job he booked off 2 weeks holiday for after the baby is born as he wasn't entitled to Paternity Pay due to only working part-time. He starts a new full time job next week so what will he be able to do to have time off when the baby is here? As it seems too early to take holidays and he won't be entitled to Paternity Pay from the new employer so not sure what options he has?

theres nothing he can do but request a few days off - he will have NO legal rights to have any time off

The company doesn't have to keep him if he takes too much time but they may work with him for a small amount of time.

He needs to talk to the head guy and see what he can do he may not be able to take off any time they may be nice and give him a 3 day none paid time off for it but it depends on him and if they say no i wouldnt have him call off they do have the right to fire him if they want they dont care about his family just him...
