Child support

My boyfriend has a daughter who has just turned 18. He isn't named on the birth certificate but has been paying maintenance all her life to her mother. His daughter told him that she's moving out to live on her own. Surely he should no longer pay maintenance to her mother as she will no longer be the main care giver? He's more than happy to help his daughter out but doesn't see why her mother should get this money (which his daughter didn't even know he paid! Her mother told her he didn't bother) anyone know the legalities on this please?
