You say it's your birthday, April 2042


Round 35: April 2042 (Autumn)


Hope's pregnancy has been a nervewracking experience for her and husband Malcolm. Dr. Moretti has been assuring them the whole way through but they won't be able to truly relax until they have their baby in their arms. 



Hope's last ultrasound scan was 100% normal, which is the only news she and Malcolm wanted to hear. Baby Novak is due in June. 

April in Sullivan means it’s finally time for Jack and Audrey to welcome Baby Benton into the world!

They are, understandably, very nervous but Jack does his best to be supportive and not freak out.

Even so, Jack and Audrey are glad to have Dr. Moretti there to see them through, as many times as she’s done this before.

Several hours later, Jack and Audrey finally get to meet their baby girl!

Zoe Jasmine Benton has her dad’s big blue eyes and her mum’s dark hair. 

Notes:
  • I was so excited about Jack and Audrey that I almost forgot to do Hope's pregnancy update. Remembered just in time! It's going to be a bit baby-crazy here for the next couple of months. Charlie and Camilla will have their update, then Adrienne and Amar have their baby, then there'll be a couple more story updates before we meet Malcolm and Hope's baby.
  • Maisie just predicted on N99 that Jack and Audrey would have a girl, so good guess! I have to admit, I was getting girl vibes for them myself. Zoe was going to be Zoe Yasmine but I changed it to Zoe Jasmine at the last minute. You have no idea how many times I changed my mind about the baby names over the last few months! Crazy.
  • You can probably all guess how I feel about the black hair. ;) Seriously, they have three red hair genes between them and Audrey has to provide her boring black hair gene! Sigh. I'm sure she'll be adorable anyway but I really was hoping for a redhead, lol!

  1. I can't believe I forgot about Hope and her baby!!! I feel bad about that, because I am really excited for theirs too, but man, it seems like eons that Audrey has been so close to delivering. I'm excited they had a baby girl, I just had girl vibes for them, and am looking forward to seeing what she looks like. It's exciting to see Jack's genes (hopefully!) in play here, but if not, Audrey is lovely. I really like Yasmine! It's on my list of Y names that I actually like for letter diversity. But Jasmine is a pretty name too, and Zoe is perfect for them.

    1. LOL, it's way worse for me to forget Hope, seeing she's my sim! So no worries there. :)

      I am kind of hoping Zoe looks at least somewhat like Jack. His genes are unique in my hood, so I do want to see them passed on. I think he makes quite an attractive woman, if I remember the gender swap I did correctly, so it should be interesting. I like Yasmine too and I might still use it for someone else. The only reason I changed it to Jasmine was because I thought Zoe and Yasmine ran into each other a little - like Zoeyasmine! Glad you like the name I did pick - I think it suits the family.

      Thanks for reading and commenting!

  2. I'm just going to jump in again here! I've read all of your previous post, and I'm sorry I haven't commented!

    Anyway, I'm glad you thought of Hope and Malcolm in time, a few days ago I was wondering when they were due :)
    I'm glad the pregnancy goes well, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed it continues doing so.

    I was thinking that Jack and Audrey would have a girl. I don't know why but I always imagined them having a daughter! And such a lovely name!
    That's annoying about the hair color, with all their chances of getting a red-head, they still end up with black hair! Maybe the next one will have red hair!

    1. I didn't so much think of Hope and Malcolm as finally check my play schedule to see who was supposed to be in this update! It seems like Hope has been pregnant forever (due to her showing up on a community lot early in her second trimester and having had the huge belly since then - grrr!), so I kind of thought I wouldn't have to deal with her until the baby was due!

      Interesting how we were all thinking girl for Jack and Audrey! So far, anyway. I'm hoping for a redhead next time but after this disappointment, I'm not going to get too excited about it for #2, lol.

  3. I love the name Zoe! And aren't Jack & Audrey the first couple to make use of the new birthing suite?! I'm so glad Hope is doing ok, and her baby.

    It would be great if Jack and Audrey could have a red head next time.

    1. Well, my playable NPCs Elmer and Amber were the first to use the birthing suite, though I don't think I set up any actual birth pictures there. Just some post-birth pics. So I guess Jack and Audrey are the first to make full use of the suite! You know I'd love a redhead next time. ;)

    1. I'm really excited to just get in there and let Hope have this baby already! Fortunately, I'm going to be playing Tate and Zelda right after I finish with comments. After that, it's baby time.

      I was so happy Audrey and Jack had a girl. Just seems right for them. :)
