A/N: Hey guys, I’m going to let you know in advance that I probably won’t be able to post a fic tomorrow as tomorrow (the 23rd) is my birthday. Thanks for understanding!
“Alright, I’m going to tweet now…” I quickly tap out a witty invite tweet and toss my phone to the side. I really do enjoy these live shows as I get to spend time with my supporters.
About 30 minutes in, a funny comment made me think of a funny thing that happened to y/n and I yesterday at the shops.
“Oh, oh, right, so you guys know how idiotic Christmas shoppers are. Well, y/n and I were shopping, just getting more baby clothes and stuff, and you found this cute- oh shit,” the comments went crazy. “Shit shit shit,” I continue muttering, scrolling through the comments.
“Y/N I PREGNANT?!?!”
“Y/N AND DAN DID THE FRICKITY FRACK”
I nervously scratched the back of my neck and chuckled a bit. “I guess the cat’s out of the bag… we’re going to have a baby! Oh God y/n is going to be so mad at me… but I must say that I’m pretty damn excited,” I chuckled uneasily, thinking of y/n’s reaction. Well, it’s honestly too late now.
“Yeah we were trying to get clothes, but we don’t know the gender yet or anything, so it was really hard… Names are kind of up in the air. I mean, we’ve talked about it a bit, but once we find out the gender we’ll really figure it out… I mean, I don’t really care either way if it’s a boy or a girl of course, but I have always imagined having a little girl…”
Of course, the rest of the live show was only baby discussion. Soon enough, the hour was up and I shut my laptop after signing off. Now I have to tell y/n that the phans know.
Man, I was hungry. This pregnancy has barely started and I already couldn’t stop eating. After having my 4th granola bar today, I pull out my phone because it started going off like crazy with twitter notifications. Confused, i opened up the app to see a repeat of the same words: congratulations, baby, pregnancy, and Dan.
I just laugh at them and respond to a few, happy that Dan decided to tell his viewers. Now just the fact that he hasn’t told me…
“Dan, love,” I walk into our bedroom to find him sat, biting his lip while scrolling through tumblr. His head jerked up, his eyes wide. “Y/n, hello. H-how are you?” he seemed so nervous, I couldn’t help smiling.
“Is there, uh, something you want to tell me?”
“Look,” he begins to rant. “It was an accident, okay? I didn’t mean to but I was just talking about our trip to the store yesterday and it kind of just slipped my mind and I don’t know I’m really sorry-”
“Dan!” I start laughing at his rambling, which earned me a dumbfounded expression from him. “I’m so happy! Besides, it was going to come out eventually. I am going to get bigger after all.” I cuddle up next to him, burrowing my head in the crook of his neck.
He tentatively puts his arm around me and says, “So you’re not mad?”
“No, you spork, I’m not mad,” I lift my head up to plant a soft kiss on his chapped lips. “I love you, and I love this baby.”
He finally relaxes and smiles. “I love you too. We’re going to be a wonderful family.”
