"Not fair, you cheated!" Harry cried after losing for the seventh time in Uno.

"No I didn't, stop being a sore loser, " Trent, one of Theodore's cousin, replied smugly.

"You saw the cards, and you shuffled them wrong." Harry tried to make excuses, trying to justify his suspicions that Trent actually cheated.

We were currently sitting in the Benson's living room taking turns playing Uno. We could've all played at once, but then we would've run out of cards, so we opted to take turns.

"No I didn't, you just can't admit defeat, " Trent asserted, wearing a victorious grin on his handsome face.

"Do they always fight like this?" I asked Theodore who was sitting next to me on the floor, our backs against the wall.

"Most of the time, when Harry gets tired of losing, " Theodore replied, "but I know just the thing to say to make them shut up, " he said and got up pulling me along until we faced the entire Benson family.

"Everyone, Hailey and I have something to tell you all, " Theodore declared making me nervous. I had no idea what Theodore was planning to tell his entire family.

All of a sudden Harry and Trent stopped arguing, and as expected all eyes were on us. I wondered if Theodore enjoyed being the center of attention, because if that was the case then I agreed with the fact that opposite did attract as I loathed being the center of attention.

Once Theodore was satisfied that all eyes were indeed on us he wound an arm around my shoulder with a soft smile. "Everyone, Hailey and I are pregnant."

At first we barely got any response. Just pin drop silence. I was starting to think that maybe they weren't happy to hear the news. But then the Benson family erupted in a chorus of Oh My Gods, and Congratulations, and I'm going to be an uncle or an aunt. Mrs. Benson came towards us and wrapped her arms around me, nearly leaving me breathless.

"Oh my, this is the best news I heard all day, I'm going to be a grandma!" She gushed.

"Congratulations son, I can't wait to hold my grandbaby, " Mr. Benson said proudly while patting Theodore at the back.

"Go bro, you knocked up Hailey, " Trent hollered making me blush. Harry smacked Trent on the back on his head making him scowl.

"This is definitely the time to celebrate, " Mr. Benson announced with a glint of happiness in his eyes.

"Let's pop the champagne, " Adam, Trent's brother, shouted then ran out of the living room only to pop back in holding a bottle of champagne.

"No drinks, my wife is pregnant." Theodore scowled making me chuckle. I patted his arm showing him that it was perfectly alright for me if they drank.

"James, we must start buying things for the baby, I hope it's a girl, have you guys found out the sex of the baby?" Mrs. Benson asked exictedly.

"Not yet, mom, Hailey is seven weeks along though, I'm going to schedule an appointment with the OB/GYN in a day or two, we'll see the baby then, " Theodore informed his parents who nodded, while I stood there awe-struck. This man thought of everything!

"Okay, we better prepare for the baby shower, and both of you must inform us of the baby's development, " Stephanie ordered us.

"No it's okay, there is no need for a baby shower, " I interjected.

"Excuse me, sister dear, but we are going to have a baby shower, isn't it bad enough you both got married without inviting any of us, you can't stop us from having a baby shower, " Ellie protested.

"We didn't invite you because you were dealing with Jamie's accident, the whole family was there, I only had Harry at my wedding as he was the best man, " Theodore defended.

"Still, you could've informed us, " Teresa argued not letting the matter drop. I, for one was enjoying the Benson family teaming against Theodore. Seemed like not only my family was pissed.

"We gave him the go ahead to marry Hailey, and we didn't go either because we were there with you guys at Jamie's, " Mrs. Benson cut in.

"Still, he should've told us, also he didn't bother informing us he was going for his honeymoon, it was only when I called him that he told me he was in Bali with his wife, " Stephanie complained.

"Okay okay, people, calm down, you guys can have your baby shower, " Theodore surrendered, resulting in the girls punching the air in victory.

"Theodore, you know how much I don't like attention, " I whispered.

"It's not like there would be guys there, it'll be just the girls, just relax and have fun." Theodore kissed my temple.

"I wish the baby is a girl, " Felicity said with a smile.

"What, no way, it's going to be a boy, " Jamie stated.

"Please, we already have too many guys in the family, this baby is going to be a girl, " Teresa argued.

"This is the first child, it's definitely a boy, " Trent stated.

"Yeah, plus we can't handle a girl in the family, you know how difficult it would be to protect her from all those boys, " Adam added making me roll my eyes.

"Great, the baby's not ev

Elizabeth said happily.

"Please call me Hailey, " I told her.

"Right, Hailey, what do you say we check the baby?" Elizabeth asked with a smile.

"Yeah sure, I'm ready, " I told her nervously.

"Okay, there is the bathroom and a gown inside, change into that while I get ultrasound machine ready, " she instructed. Theodore kissed me before I went inside the bathroom to change. I hurriedly put the flimsy gown on then came out of the bathroom.

"Okay, Hailey, lie down and let's get started." I immediately did as instructed. Theodore came and stood right next to me, holding my hand firmly in his.

Elizabeth pushed the gown up, exposing my stomach. "This will be cold." That was the only warning I got before Elizabeth smeared a glob of cold gel on my bare stomach. She spread the gel around a bit, grabbed a wand and placed it firmly on top of the gelled area.

After a few second, the silence was shattered by steady rhythmic sound. At first Theodore and I were confused, wondering exactly the sound was.

"This is your baby's heartbeat, both of the heartbeats sound nice and strong, " Elizabeth said. I was too focus on the sound of the heartbeat to listen to what Elizabeth exactly said. Instantly tears welled in my eyes at hearing the strong beat of my baby's heart. Theodore squeezed my hand; I looked at him to see his eyes glittering with unrestrained happiness.

Elizabeth tapped a few keys on the keyboard then turned the monitor slightly. "These are the babies, " Elizabeth pointed to two blobs.

"Two babies?" Theodore asked, shock evident in his tone.

"Yes Theodore, congratulations, your wife is expecting twins, " Elizabeth stated. Tears gathered in my eyes at seeing the two blobs on the screen. I couldn't believe that Theodore and I were having twins.

"Sweetheart, did you hear that, we're having twins, " Theodore said in awe, then bent down and kissed me tenderly, wiping my tears. Happiness was radiating out of him in waves.

"You are exactly seven weeks and two days along. It's still too early to tell the sex of the babies, but we can find the sex of the babies in the upcoming scans. Would you like a print of the scan?"

"Yes, " Theodore and I said unison. Elizabeth immediately printed the black and white image and handed it to Theodore. She then gave me a couple of tissues to wipe the gel off. Once the ultrasound was done, I changed back in my clothes, then sat next to Theodore in the visiting chairs.

"Now Hailey, you must take care of yourself. You must maintain a proper diet for yourself, and try your best not to stress yourself over things, alright. Theodore, you better make sure Hailey doesn't stress herself, it would not be good for the babies, " Elizabeth instructed.

"Don't worry, I've got her, " Theodore assured her. After a few more instructions, a prescription for vitamins and a date for the next scan, Theodore and I bid farewell to Dr. Elizabeth Marlow and left the hospital, with smiles on our faces.
