A year later, one of the triplets tells you she/his girlfriend is pregnant.
Write a short diary entry from your point of view as a grandparent-to-be. What were the circumstances – was it planned? An accident with a condom? Irresponsibility? Rape? Were you shocked or did you expect it? Why/why not? Did you give your child advice or trust their own judgement?
Six months later you’re at the hospital. You’re so proud of your child and the babies are gorgeous! (Oh yes, BABIES – after all, multiples run in the family!).
Then roll one 3-sided die once to decide what babies first names are named after.
1 – singers
2 - actors
3 – places
YOU PICK THE SEX OF EACH BABY & ANY MIDDLE NAMES
Design a birth announcement for the babies, from your point of view, as a grandparent, to send to your friends and family. You can use http://www.widdlytinks.com/birth-announcements/, which is really simple. Add a photo if you can, many photography sites have suitable photos on.

Just before he went up to bed Seb confided in me that his girlfriend Jessica was pregnant.
I was shocked at first and then i have to admit i was excited. Of course i was going to support him, he's my son. Seb and Jessica had been dating a while now so at least there was that, at least it wasn't a one night stand, not that i regret having my babies...Oscar and Rory.

Jessie is just over 16 weeks now, she has a beautiful but very large bump!!. This morning she had an ultrasound and the doctor told us she's having quints!, she was terrified as to how she was going to cope, but at the same time she was so happy. Seb is still a bit shell shocked but they are stronger than ever right now and he knows the special bond that comes with being one of a multiple.

It's the day of Jessie's c-section, we are waiting in the waiting room for the news......

We were shocked to find out that 16 year old Belle was pregnant, she'd always been the quiet, timid one out of all the triplets, and it wasn't something we'd expected! She'd been with her boyfriend since the age of 14, with him being just 1 year older than her, so I was at least relieved that she wouldn't have to go through what I did, and would have the support of him. Although I was disappointed by the news, I was also very excited to become a grandmother, and of course offered my daughter all the support she could need, after all, I knew how it felt to be a young mum. After an ultrasound we discovered that Belle was carrying twins!

Finding out Addy was pregnant after the condom broke was a massive surprise, but finding out she was pregnant with quads was an even bigger one! Thankfully the babies were all born happy and healthy, and we plan to help Addy with looking after them so she can finish school.
She named the twins Miriam Cordelia and Hazel Juliana and June Susannah and Iris Dorothea.

Today Rory (Aurora) told me she was going to the doctors after school with her friend because her friend was on the injection contraceptive. She's had a boyfriend for about 4 months now, but we keep condoms in the Bethroom cabinets and all the older girls know they're there. I got there and she got in the car and said, "Mum, please dont hate me." She handed me the sonogram! 12 weeks pregnant. I was not expecting that. We both cried and i said i would break the news to everyone if she wanted me to.
February 12th -
I took Rory to another scan today. Low and behold, there were twins! How on earth did the sonographer miss that on the first scan? I could have fainted. Breathe, Poppy, breathe.
March 12th -
20 week scan, everything looks great.
Rory's having two.. Boys! Its great that we have stuff left over from Ledger that she can use!
May 21st -

Dear diary, today Ariel sat me down and told me that she was pregnant. Of course I was in complete shock, she has only been with her boyfriend Ryan for about 8 months but Ariel has always been very maternal and a part of me wasn't surprised. She swears the baby wasn't planned, that it was a missed pill that was to blame so Elliott and I have told her we are going to support her through anything. I am actually really excited about becoming a grandmother although I feel way to young. Ariel will make a good mother so I am not worried.
Dear diary, the twins are here! Yes twins, after all multiples run in the family! She has had 2 boys, a handful but they are gorgeous. Ariel has named them Orlando James and Pheonix Ray. They were born at 11:40 and 11:46 in the morning and Orlando weighed 6lb and Pheonix weighed 5lb 8oz. They are healthy and happy
Poppy and Elliott Carter with Jesse, Ariel, Nala, Roscoe, Belle, Liza,Toby and Riley!

Cooper and his girlfriend told us that they are pregnant. Koby and I are in complete shock -they are only 16! They told us that their protection failed. It's difficult, but I'm learning to accept this.
It's twin girls!
They are here! Brooklyn Marie and London Kate- beautiful babies and this grandma's heart is full already.
