I walked into the living room finding dad going through my baby book. Mom told me she broke down and told him. I’ve been so scared to face him so I’ve tried my best to stay away.
“Daddy,” I whispered making him look up at me. He smiled patting the seat next to him. I walked over finding him looking at pictures from when I was just born. I was curled up on mom while he had his arm around us, smiling.
“One of the best days of my life.” He smiled.
“What was it like holding me for the first time?”
“There are so many words to describe it. Its one of the most amazing moments in a parent’s life to hold their brand-new baby.”
“I’m scared,” I confessed as he nodded.
“I know you are. When I found out about Blake, I was terrified. Your mom was so scared, but the further along she got less scared. We’re all here to support you.”
“What about Blake and Dom?” He sighed making me worried.
“They’re going to be in shock that’s for sure, but you don’t have to worry about them. Does the father know yet?” I shook my head looking away.
“I was planning on telling him today.”
“I would like to meet this guy. I promise I will be nice to him.”
“Thank you.” He pulled me close kissing my temple. He was right everything was going to be fine. I pulled away and went to get ready to meet Lucas. As scared as I am to tell Lucas, I’m more worried about Blake and Dom.
“Hey, you’re here.” Lucas smiled opening the door for me.
“Sorry, I just needed to talk to you.”
“This seems serious.” I nodded sitting down on his couch while he came over sitting next to me.
“How are you feeling?” Lately, we’ve become friends but tried to stay within our boundaries.
“A little bit better.” I sighed rubbing my hands down my face.
“Whatever it is you can tell me.”
“Luke, I’m pregnant,” I whispered looking the other way.
“My siblings always joked that this would happen and now it’s happening.” I looked over finding him staring at the wall still in shock.
“Do you want this baby?” He sighed, nodding his head looking back over to me.
“Yes. Whatever you need me to do or want me to do, just tell me. I know we’re not together, so I don’t want to overstep.”
“Maybe we should be together?” I whispered.
“We should at least try it. I promise I will be there if you need anything or if the baby needs anything.”
“Thank you, that means a lot.” He took my hand squeezing it.
“You know my twin brother Liam’s wife had a baby without even knowing she was pregnant.” He smiled thinking back to the memory. When we first met I got a chance to watch him with all his nieces and nephews. He is so good with them, so I have no doubt he will be just as amazing with our baby.
“I can’t even imagine going through that. I still can’t wrap my head around that I’m pregnant.” I smiled rubbing a hand against my flat belly.
“Does your family know?”
“My parents and sister. I’m writing a letter to my brother. How do you think your parents will react?”
“Of course, shock but you have nothing to worry about. This baby is going to be so loved and spoiled.” He smiled pulling me into his arms hugging me. I sighed taking comfort in his arms. Now that I know he is on board, it’s becoming more real.
“Can we just order pizza and watch movies?”
“Sounds good.” He pulled out his phone and called for pizza. I sighed, pulling the blanket around me, curling up.
“So, who’s going to tell your sister?” I smirked. Caitlyn is going to freak out.
“Maybe we should tell her together. I can tell the rest of my family if you want me to.”
“No, it’s okay, I should go with you. It’s not so much your parents, it’s all your sisters.” I’ve met all five of them and they seemed great. I just hope I can fit in with them, the same way Cassie did when she married Liam.
The pizza came pulling me out of my thoughts. Lucas got up and went to pay for the pizza before bringing it over to me. I quickly opened it, taking a piece.
“Hungry?” He smirked.
“Yea, I didn’t realize how hungry I was.” I smiled taking another bite.
“They have some of the best pizza.” I nodded.
“Look I know we weren’t together, but you weren’t with any else right?”
“I’m not mad if you were. Just now that we’re having a baby...”
“No, I get it.” I smiled reassuring him.
I walked into my parent’s kitchen, with Kinsley squeezing my hand tightly. Mom and dad were busy at making dinner while Cait was doing homework at the counter.
“Hey, momma.” I smiled making her turn around smiling.
“Hey buddy, Kinsley it’s good to see you again.” She smiled looking between us.
“You guys too.” She smiled nervously.
“Wait are you two holding hands?” Caitlyn gasped looking between the two of us.
“Yes, we are captain obvious.”
“Be nice to your sister.” Did smiled.
“Come on, let’s go talk.” Caitlyn quickly got up and went to pull her away from me.
“After dinner.” I eyed my sister making her groan.
“Caitlyn go set the table.” mom said.
“Go help her I’ll be right there.” I smiled kissing her temple. I helped my parents before going over sitting next to Kinsley.
“So, how did this happen?” Mom asked looking between the two of us. Kinsley looked at me worried as I smiled at her.
“That night Caitlyn brought her over we stayed up all night talking.” I reached down, squeezing her hand sensing her nervousness.
“Have you heard from your brother?” Caitlyn asked looking worried. I know she wrote to her brother, so she was scared to talk to him.
“Not recently. When I talked to Dom he said he’s been working on some type of project.” She nodded looking down at her food.
“So, mom, dad I got something to tell you.” I smiled, watching them both look at me confused.
“I’m going to be a dad.” I smiled squeezing Kinsley’s hand.
“Wait you two?” Caitlyn gasped.
“You know I’ve feared this day for a long time. Kinsley, I’m thankful it’s you and its someone we like.” Mom smiled looking at Kinsley.
“Congratulations you two,” Dad said patting me on the back.
“Thank you.” she smiled looking between my parents.
“Are you two getting married?” Caitlyn asked.
“We just got together so we haven’t talked about it.” Kinsley seemed to freeze as she looked at my sister.
After dinner, we went to the living room and curled up. I pulled Kinsley into my arms letting her head rest against my chest.
“Yea I’m just tired.”
“We can go upstairs.”
“No, it’s okay, I’m fine right here.” I smiled hearing her sigh in content.
My hand rested against her belly where our tiny baby was. I can’t believe I’m going to be a dad in the next couple of months. I can’t wait to show them how to play soccer and all kinds of things. No matter what happens this baby is surrounded by so much love and support.
