Vanessa tossed her iPhone aside, and, burying her face in the covers, began to cry. She had just started with her time of the month the day before, which was so much more than just a simple annoyance in her life. It meant that she wasn't pregnant. Still. After months of almost daily sex, nothing had happened. And, to make it worse, she had decided to watch YouTube videos of babies crawling, smiling, and being rocked to sleep. That, of course, made her feel a strong pang of jealousy and desire to have a baby of her own.

"Hey, baby girl, I'm here," Zac announced a few minutes later. However, when he saw Vanessa crying, the smile faded off his face and worry instantly overtook him. "Aw, sweetie, what's wrong?" He sat down on the bed beside Vanessa and gently rubbed her back.

"I...I want a baby," Vanessa sobbed. "But I'm still not pregnant."

"Aw, honey, don't cry," Zac soothed, stroking Vanessa's hair. "You'll get there soon enough. We'll have a baby eventually."

Vanessa crawled into Zac's lap. "But I'm starting to worry that I'll never be able to get pregnant. There's something wrong with me."

"Aww, Nessa, nothing's wrong with you. Sometimes it just takes a while. But I promise that we'll have a baby before we're thirty."

Vanessa smiled as she looked at her calendar. A week had passed since the day her period was supposed to come, and there was no sign of it at all. In addition to that, she had thrown up the previous morning, and, during sex the other night, Zac has commented that her breasts looked fuller than they did before. Vanessa has a good feeling about this. She was most definitely pregnant, and that was confirmed by the three positive pregnancy tests that lay on the bathroom counter later that day.

It was then that Vanessa wanted to tell Zac about her pregnancy. However, she stopped herself and decided instead to do it in a more creative way.

"Hello," Dr. Gianna Warington, Vanessa's doctor, greeted as Vanessa stepped into the room. "How are you?"

"Pregnant," giggled Vanessa.

"Are you? Congratulations! Is that what you came here for today?"

Vanessa nodded.

"Alright, well let me just have you take one of our pregnancy tests to make sure it's not a false alarm, because some of the home ones aren't always accurate, and then, if it's confirmed, I'll calculate your due date and get you checked out." She handed Vanessa a pregnancy test.

Vanessa left the room, returning five minutes later with a positive test in her hand.

"Your test was right!" Dr. Warington observed. "Okay, have a seat, Vanessa, and answer a few questions for me."

Vanessa sat down.

"Alright. When did your last period end?"

"December 20."

"And when was the last time you had sex?"

"Um...two night ago."

"Alright, let me ask a different question. How soon after your last period did you have sex?"

"Like the night it ended."

"Yeah, I don't blame you. If Zac Efron was my husband, I'd be all over him, too," the doctor laughed. "But anyway, let's see..." She typed Vanessa's information into the computer. "Okay, your due date is September 15, 2015."


"And you will need to visit here once a month during the first two trimesters and once a week during the final trimester just to make sure everything's okay. So today will count as your first monthly visit, so we can go ahead and get started. We're gonna do a basic gyno routine today, but we're also going to do an ultrasound as well, which will be in the other room. So let's get done with the boring stuff, and then we'll go ahead and look at your baby and talk about what will happen during your pregnancy."

After twenty minutes, Vanessa was done her physical exam and headed over to the ultrasound room with her doctor, where she laid down on the table.

"Alright, can you lift your shirt up just a little? I'm gonna put gel on your stomach at the spot where your baby bump will be eventually, and we're just gonna take a look with the scanner."

Vanessa pulled her top up above her stomach and flinched as she felt the cold gel on her skin. However, all of her discomfort vanished when she saw her baby on the screen. It looked like a tiny thing, no bigger than a bean, but it was still amazing to see.

"Alright, everything looks good," Dr. Warington announced. "Would you like some photos of your baby?"

"Yes, please," Vanessa replied.

The doctor printed pictures of the baby, then told Vanessa to have a seat on one of the chairs in the room. Once she was sitting, she handed her several pamphlets on pregnancy. "Alright, now these pamphlets will kind of tell you what will happen during each month, but I'll go over that with you now as well, in case you have questions." She then proceeded to explain the pregnancy side effects to Vanessa.

"Okay, I got it," Vanessa spoke when the doctor was finished. "Thanks."

"You're welcome. Have a good day, and I'll see you next month!"

"See you. Bye!"


That night, Zac walked into the bedroom after a long day of interviews and photo shoots. As he started to remove his shoes, he noticed three black and white pictures on the mirror of the dresser. "Nessa, what are those pictures?" Zac walked over to the photos and looked closer.

Vanessa, who was sitting on the bed, walked over to Zac and, wrapping her arms around his waist, rested her chin on his shoulder. "It's our baby," she whispered.

"You mean..." A smile crept across Zac's face.

"Yes." Vanessa moved out from behind Zac and hung gently on to his neck. "I'm pregnant."

"Oh, Nessa," Zac breathed. He first kissed Vanessa's lips, then her neck, then placed a hand beneath her shirt and touched her stomach. "Hey," he said to his unborn child, "I'm your daddy. I can't wait until I can meet you."

Tears welled up in Vanessa's eyes. "Oh, Zac," she murmured, running her fingers through his hair. "You're so sweet. You're gonna be an amazing father."

"Well, you'll be an amazing mother." Zac kissed Vanessa on the nose and held her close for a few minutes. When their embrace ended, he carried her to the bed and sat her on his lap. "So," he started. "I guess I should probably cancel that action movie I just signed onto, shouldn't I?"

"You don't have to," Vanessa disagreed. "I'll be fine."

"But I wanna take time off for a year to help you, and to bond with our baby. I'll do some drama programs at different schools in the area while I have off."

"Okay," Vanessa said. "That'll work out, then."

"And once we find out if the baby's a boy or girl, we can start decorating one of the bedrooms," Zac continued. "And pick out a name."

"Yeah. I'm thinking we can have the baby's room rights next to ours, then when he or she gets older, we can make a big kid room a couple doors down so the poor kid won't be tortured by hearing us when we have sex."

"Or when our baby's still a newborn, we can pull a cradle into our room, then once he or she sleeps through the night, we can move them into their room. That way their room can be a couple doors down from the beginning and we don't have to move everything."

"Good idea! We should do that, then!"

"Oh, and we can make one of the rooms that are meant to be computer rooms or something a playroom."

"Yeah!" agreed Vanessa.

For the rest of the evening, Zac and Vanessa continued to discuss plans for their new baby, and share their excitement of finally becoming parents.
