Starr secretly went to the doctor and found out that she'd been feeling sick lately, because she was pregnant! Although she was excited, Starr was completely anxiety ridden about becoming a mom. She never invisioned herselsf giving birth, but most importantly, she never imagined that she would be expecting her first child with TWO other children to care for! Although she was overwhelmed, she decided that she had waited long enough, so she sat the kids down in the living room, and shared the big news.
"Is everything Ok Auntie Starr?" Nykerria asked nervously as she and Dre sat down on the couch as she instructed. Ny'Kerria had been noticing that Starr wasn't at her best these last few weeks and had grown concerned for her Aunt.
"Yes. Of course sweetheart. I just have a bit of news to share with you." Starr said, clearing her throat.
"What is it Auntie Starr?" Dre asked anxiously.
"Well, I brought you two in here to tell you that..." Starr began but her nerves set in. She wasn't sure how the kids were going to take her pregnancy, but she couldn't hide it any longer.
"Tell us what?...." Ny'Kerria said, hanging on the edge of her seat. Starr was taking way to long to spill the beans that kids were growing impatient.
"I wanted to tell you guys that... I'm pregnant and you will have a new baby cousin on the way really, really soon." Starr confessed.
The kids looked shocked at first and their reaction scared Starr. What if the kids didn't want a little cousin in the house? What if they didn't receive her unborn child well? But, all of her worries debilitated the moment little Ny'Kerria jumped up from the sofa and gave her Auntie Starr a big hug.
"OMG, AUNTIE! So, we're having a baby?"
"Yes, my dear! We are having a baby!" Starr said, relieved as she watched both of the children warm up to the idea! Ny'Kerria began rubbing her belly.
Although Dre was equally as happy, he was a little apprehensive about the entire situation. He began to worry. "Auntie... With the new baby coming, does that mean Ny'Kerria and I have to go?" he asked with evident worry on his face.
Starr reached down and hugged little Dre. "Honey, you two aren't going anywhere. This baby is only going to bring us closer together." She said, hugging him reassuringly. "Besides..." She began "If you two left, who would help me change all of these diapers?" Her joke put a smile on little Dre's face.
Starr was so pleased at the way that the kids received the news! Now, all she had to do was tell the father of her child...
