When the mlqc boys found out that Mc is pregnant and preparing it
Thank you so much for your request! It’s been awhile since I’ve written anything domestic, so I’m excited to dive into this one! I kind of touched on this topic in my headcanon for the guys as dads (see: MLQC Guys are Dads on my Master List!), but I’d be more than happy to indulge you in the pre-baby bliss!
// Victor //
From the moment your doctor confirms that you’re pregnant, Victor treats your pregnancy like an LFG project, ensuring everything is properly planned out and no detail has escaped his attention. One afternoon, Victor stops by your office to drop off a file outlining everything the two of you needed to complete on a weekly basis between now and the due date. You throw the file folder back at him when you see that he wants you to complete a weekly “wellness report”, detailing every little thing you do and feel. “It’s data for the doctor,” he tells you. “HE DOESN’T NEED TO KNOW EVERY TIME I PEE VICTOR.”
Using his vast amount of resources, Victor assembles the best doctors for your care team and reserves the most luxurious and private birthing suite for your due date. You tell him that the reservation might be a waste since due dates aren’t always accurate and that babies are late all the time. “Mine won’t be,” he insists. You’ve never side-eyed so hard in your life.
The LFG CEO calls you to his office for a meeting to discuss your maternity leave and handing off your workload to your staff (ahh the joy of your husband also being your boss). Victor wants you to stop working 2 months before your due date so you’re not stressed when the baby arrives, to which you tell him to “shove it” and that you’re working until at least a week before the due date. You didn’t want to have your staff do more work when you’re more than capable. It’s the most heated negotiation that Goldman ever witnessed in the LFG conference room.
Speaking of maternity leave, Victor has Goldman block off the three months after the baby’s due date on his calendar as paternity leave so he could be at home to help with the newborn as much as possible. His assistant tells him that LFG’s paternity leave is technically only 2 weeks long. “What idiot approved that?” Victor asks. Goldman looks at Victor uneasily and Victor realizes that he’s the idiot that signed off on it. After an emergency meeting with HR, all LFG employees receive an email announcing their updated maternity/paternity benefits.
Of course the Souvenir owner and chef will make sure that you are eating well for two. Gone are the indulgent meals he once cooked for you and in its place are healthier, more nutritional meals. You are appreciative of the gesture, but you warn him that if he stops making his pudding or tries to fool you with a crappy healthy version of it, you’re going to make sure his child never sees him.
Ever the food enthusiast, Victor researches baby food recipes that he can make at home. To hell with that pre-packaged garbage normal people bought at the store; it’s only the best organic homemade foods for your little one.
Victor’s out of town on a business trip when you have your doctor’s appointment to learn the sex of your baby so you decide to surprise him at the airport. Your usually composed husband nearly breaks down in the middle of the baggage claim area when he sees you, plump as ever and carrying pink balloons with a sign that says “Welcome Home Daddy!”
When your nesting tendencies kick in, you show no mercy on Victor’s black card. Your baby’s nursery is so gorgeous, it should be featured in a magazine.
When the due date finally arrives and your water breaks (“See, I told you our child wouldn’t be late”), Victor has his new luxury SUV packed and ready to go with your overnight bag and car seat. As he helps you into the back of the car, you lean over to kiss him. “Honey, we’re about to be parents,” you say, “You’re going to be a father.”
It’s at that moment that Victor realizes he spent the last 9 months preparing for the arrival of his child, but never took the time to really prepare himself to be a dad. He loosens his tie and swallows hard. Could he be a good dad? What if something happened and he couldn’t provide for you anymore? Would he be able to handle being a dad and running his company?
Victor is a complete mess when you arrive at the hospital, a version of him completely unknown to you. He can’t stop pacing in the delivery room as the nurses and doctors prepare you to give birth. However, his anxieties melt away the moment you start to push. He is in complete awe of the strength you have to bring this tiny little human into the world. If you’re able to endure the last 9 months… hell the last few hours… he could at least handle being a decent father.
The usually stoic CEO can’t stop the tears from rolling down his cheeks when he holds his daughter in his arms for the first time. Victor is determined to give this little girl the entire world and teach her to have the kindness, strength,and determination that the woman resting next to him possessed. Victor leans over to press a kiss on your forehead, careful not to wake you up. “Good job, Mrs. Li,” he whispers, “No complaints. No need for a redo. She’s perfect.”
// Gavin //
Poor Gavin is TERRIFIED when you tell him that you’re pregnant. But you can’t tell because he’s all smiles when he receives the good news, peppering your face with kisses, and telling you how wonderful you are.
Gavin’s biggest fear is that he’ll end up like his own father - harsh, absent, and a terrible excuse for one.
However, it’s hard for Gavin to stay in the shadows of his fear with you bouncing around in excitement. Forget pregnancy glow - in Gavin’s eyes, you are absolutely RADIANT while carrying his child.
Our oh-so-sweet officer is enraptured by your growing tummy. He’ll always be resting his hand on your belly when you’re relaxing on the couch or wrapping his arms around your bump when he hugs you from behind while you’re cooking.
At first, Gavin treats you like a glass figurine, insisting that you rest and let him take care of everything. However, when he sees how capable you are of still going through your normal day, he’s in awe of how strong you are. He can’t believe you are able to still function despite your changing body and the plethora of body aches and nausea you feel.
Gavin accompanies you to every doctor’s appointment and every birthing class to learn as much as he can. He’s a sponge when it comes to absorbing information since he has no idea what to expect when you’re expecting.
Gavin decides that an upgrade to an actual family car is necessary for your growing family. You insist that he keeps Sparky though when he tells the car salesman that he has a motorcycle to trade in. You didn’t want him to give up his beloved bike and reassured your husband that you could handle the car payment without any issues.
The two of you spend time to update your current budget to include future baby expenses. Gavin nearly falls over when he sees the cost of baby formula and food and asks if you can feed the baby instant noodles. (No Gavin, no)
The two of you are by no means struggling, but Gavin wants to ensure that he has a decent nest egg set aside to give his child everything they need and the childhood they deserve. The childhood that he never had.
Gavin wants to be surprised when it comes to the sex of the baby, so you do your best to keep it a secret from him. However, one night, Gavin takes a peek into the nursery you’re setting up and sees a plethora of gifts from your coworkers, all wrapped in varying shades of blue. When Gavin goes to sleep that night, he has dreams of playing baseball and summers spent camping with his son.
Gavin is very patient throughout your whole pregnancy. He handles your fluctuating moods with ease and is more than willing to provide you with anything you need - even if it’s Flaming Hot Cheetos, fried noodles, and mint chocolate chip ice cream at 3am in the morning.
When your water breaks before your due date, Gavin is in a slight panic but when you insist that it’s fine and you’re ready for the baby to leave your tummy, he steels himself to be the strong rock you need him to be during this time. Even though he’s so unsure of the type of parent he’ll be, Gavin is determined to do his best and to always be the protector for his family.
// Kiro //
Kiro is over the moon when the two of you see the distinct two lines on your pregnancy test.
The pop idol decides to take a hiatus so that he can focus on being with you while you’re pregnant, only committing to a few local appearances and photo shoots, just for Savin’s sake.
Kiro is that husband that likes to compare the size of your baby to fruit. He’s got an app and everything. He starts to get concerned for you once the baby starts hitting the melon stages.
Like Victor, Kiro has no qualms over spending a ridiculous amount of money for the baby. Except Kiro buys nothing useful. It’s just all toys and custom-made outfits that will make the baby match with Daddy.
Kiro loves all of your crazy cravings. It gives him a chance to snack along with you.
Savin’s very concerned that Kiro will have a dad bod before the baby is even born.
When you’re feeling self conscious about your body changes, leave it to Kiro to make you feel like the most beautiful woman in the world. He loves your new curves and will always tell you how much he does through his words and touches.
Always the tech guy, Kiro buys all the latest baby gadgets. Your home is decked out with the best baby monitor system and your tech savvy hubby treats you to the best smart car seat, stroller, and other over the top devices intended to help make your lives easier once the baby is here.
Kiro is obsessed with finding things to balance on your belly. Seriously, he’s like a child having a child.
He plans a movie night for the both of you so you can watch the birthing video your doctor provided. Not even 5 minutes into the movie, poor Kiro has his head buried in your neck, muttering how he can’t believe he did this to you and how he’s making you go through this.
When it’s time to finally have the baby, Kiro is too excited to meet his child to be nervous. He stands next to you in the delivery room, holding your hand and coaching you through your breathing as you push.
“Miss Chips, you’re so beautiful. Thank you for doing this for us,” he says, kissing your forehead as you clutch his hand in a vice-like grip as you give your final push.
You both decided to keep the sex of the baby a secret, so when the nurse hands you a bundle wrapped in baby pink, Kiro gives a big whoop. He was secretly hoping for a girl. He had visions of tea parties, piggy back rides, and baking sweets in the kitchen with her. He looks lovingly at you as you cuddle his daughter. Now he has you and the little princess to spoil and give the whole world to.
// Lucien //
You fall into Lucien’s arms and sob when you receive your positive pregnancy test. Lucien holds you close, silently thanking the higher beings for the good fortune. The two of you had been trying so long to get pregnant that Lucien feared another negative test would break you.
Where you are excited and anxious for the baby, Lucien is steadfast and level-headed. He provides you with the strength and comfort you need to make it through the next 9 months.
The professor never shows you that he’s afraid of being a father. He fears the cruel world will either take him away from his family or vice versa. Life hasn’t dealt Lucien a fair hand and so he’s always on high alert for the shadows of tragedy that seem to creep in the corners of his world.
Lucien’s patience with you is unwavering. Your mood swings don’t bother him and he caters to your every whim, whether it be wanting peanut M&Ms and sushi in the middle of the night or your constant requests for back massages and foot rubs.
He loves photographing your pregnancy journey and capturing your radiant glow. At first you protest, claiming you’re bloated and don’t look your best, but he reassures you that you’ve never looked more beautiful than when you’re carrying his child.
Lucien is so overprotective of his family that he refuses to hire a nanny. Instead, he sets up a section of his lab to be a mini nursery and has his grad students babysit under his watchful eye, holding their grades over their heads should any of them step out a line when it comes to his child.
Lucien spends his sleepless nights during your pregnancy painting the nursery, creating beautiful scenes that center around a camphor tree.
You spend your evenings together, you laying down with your head in his lap while he reads baby books out loud to you.
When your water breaks in the middle of the night, Lucien is more than ready. He carefully but quickly drives you to the hospital, providing you with encouraging words as you panic in the backseat.
Lucien is your rock in the delivery room, reminding you to breathe as you push. He’s overcome with emotion when the nurse hands you your baby boy, a feeling that he is unfamiliar with. He looks at the infant, disbelief shadowing his face. He can’t believe he helped make the precious little thing slumbering in your arms.
“Do you want to hold him?” you ask him, a tired smile on your face. At first Lucien is unsure and afraid he’ll break the fragile baby, but when you hold his son out to him, the professor carefully cradles the baby in his arms. He chokes back a sob as he stares into the baby’s soft gray eyes. He feels nothing but love not only for his newborn son, but also for the beautiful woman asleep at his side.
