Herrow there friend ✋ I would love a fic where Betty has to figure out the best way to tell juggie she's pregnant with his baby and his reaction, I just feel it would be so cute!
I’ll give it a go!
“No Ron, I mean.. maybe.. I don’t know. What if he doesn’t want this? We just got married last year and you know he’s got the new book coming out, and then what about me? Winter break is coming up so I’m trying to keep the morning sickness down so I don’t have to miss anymore work. This is a mess.” Tears gathered in the corners of Betty’s eyes as she bit down hard on her lower lip.
Veronica grabbed her best friends shaky hands, stroking her palms soothingly
“Listen to me. You are going to be an amazing mother, it’s normal for you to be worried, it’s scary but you’ll figure all of it out, you always do. As for Jughead? You both have incredibly stable jobs, he makes great money and you’re 25 years old. He loves you Betty and he’s going to love that little baby. And.. I’m gonna be a godmother, oh my god I can’t wait. I hope it’s a girl, I saw the cutest little pearl charm bracelet at Tiffanys the other day.” The raven haired beauty rambled, her brain already flying into auntie mode.
Betty couldn’t keep the small smile off of her face as she sniffles, wiping the tears from her eyes
“A girl would be nice, but then… a little boy with Juggies eyes. Maybe my blonde hair.” Her hands fell to her still flat tummy, a wistful smile on her face as she daydreamed about her future baby.
Veronica placed a comforting hand on the beautiful mother to be’s shoulder
“See, it’s all gonna workout.” She whispered softly, her own eyes landing on Betty’s stomach as she grinned.
At that exact moment the front door swung open revealing a snowy Jughead carrying a brown paper bag filled with takeout food.
“Honey, I’m home.” He singsonged, walking into the living room, cheeks going red when he spotted Veronica tugging her coat on.
“Veronica, Betty didn’t tell me you’d be over.” He cast a glance at his wife, instantly stiffening when he saw her watery eyes and red nose “what’s the matter? What happened? Betty, baby? Why are you crying.” Jughead quickly dropped the bag of food on the ground and flew to the couch, squeezing next to Betty.
Veronica pulled her cape on with a flourish
“That’s my cue to leave. I’ll see you both at breakfast tomorrow. And remember B, I love you.” She blew a kiss and headed through the front door.
“Baby?” Jughead spoke again, drawing her green eyes back to his. “What is it? What’s going on?”
Betty tried desperately to hold back her tears but at the tender voice of her husband, the flood gates reopened.
It took Jughead all of one second to pull his wife into his arms, rubbing her back gently and whispering in her ear.
“It’s okay. Whatever it is, we’ll figure it out. I love you. I love you so much.”
She sobbed openly into his chest her hands splayed against his soft flannel shirt, she knew she was being dramatic but if anyone asked she was definitely blaming it on the hormones.
“I…, I don’t know how to tell you, I’m.. oh juggie”
Jughead pulled back slowly, cupping her face in his hands.
“You can tell me anything. I promise, I love you.”
With a shaky breath Betty finally spoke
“I’m… I’m pregnant.”
It came out as a whisper, something so weak it didn’t even sound like her own voice.
Jugheads grip on her cheeks went slack, his hands falling to his sides with an audible thud, Betty nodded, looking down.
“I didn’t know how to tell you. I know it’s scary, and maybe we aren’t ready, but I think we can do this. I think.. maybe we could be good parents, we’ve had a lot to learn. I don’t know how to tell you, I didn’t think you wanted one of those baby announcements and judging by your silence maybe you’d have preferred if I didn’t tell you at all. I get it, I…” Betty was cut off as she yelped, suddenly she was in the air, looking down as her husband beamed at her.
“A baby.” He whispered, the smile still etched on his face, his eyes fell to her stomach as he swung her in a circle “our baby. My baby.”
Betty nodded as Jughead fingers fisted the fabric of her shirt covering her stomach.
“Yeah. Our baby, your baby.” She was smiling now.
“Thankyou.” Jughead whispered, pressing his forehead against hers “Thankyou so much Betty.”
Betty felt a single tear fall from her eyes, this one was a happy tear.
“You’re welcome Jughead”
Suddenly he was pulling away from her.
“I’ve gotta call my dad.”
Betty’s eyes went wide
“No! I have to call my mom! If she hears we told your dad first she’ll kill me.”
Jughead had the cordless phone in his hand as he held it over his head.
“You snooze you lose.” He grinned
Betty pulled her cellphone out of her pocket and immediately pressed Alice’s speed dial, Jughead stuttered as he pressed the numbers on the phone.
“That’s what you get for not using modern technology.” She stuck her tongue out
The couple spoke at the same time, stating at each other with the goofiest smiles on their faces.
