Peter woke to the sounds of barfing from the bathroom. He rolled out of bed and hurried to the bathroom, arriving in time to see Belinda heave once more. Kneeling behind her he wrapped his arms around her slight frame and held her as she tried to empty an already empty stomach.
She reached up, fumbled with the handle and flushed away the contents of the bowl. Then she dropped back against Peter. His warn hand rubbed gentle circles on her belly.
"Help me up."
He stood, taking her with him. She rinsed her mouth with water and then grabbed for her toothbrush. Peter stood undecided on what course of action to take. When her teeth were cleaned she turned to him, slipping her arms around his waist.
"Want to shower together?"
"Is it that late?"
"Yes, Sergei's plane lands in an hour."
"He's going to be so excited when you tell him the news."
"When we tell him. After all you're the one who has been dealing with my morning sickness for the last month."
"I don't mind, other than the fact that I feel badly that you are starting your days that way."
"Are you happy?"
"If you are ready for a baby why shouldn't I be?"
"It could be yours, Peter."
"I doubt that, Sergei is far more likely to be the father."
"I thought we'd agreed that there was no mine and yours, that it was ours."
"Belinda, this is different."
"Why? Will the way you love the child be any different if we do DNA testing and find out for sure?"
"Of course not! But law of averages would make it more likely to be Sergei's. "
"Maybe so but it only takes one swimmer, and I know you have plenty."
Her lips curved in a soft smile as she thought about the night before and the way Peter had seemed to come forever. He rubbed her cheek with his knuckles before turning to start the shower.
"The grandpas are going to flip. Alexandra and us having babies so close together."
"They'll love it. You know how Sergei talks about the way they spoiled him and his sisters."
Peter stepped into the shower and held out his hand for her to join him. They both got a little aroused, but didn't follow through. Sergei was coming home after being away for a month, all their energy would be used to welcome him home.
They had waited until after the first round. Sergei was in the middle, a head on each of his shoulders.
"Sergei, Peter has some news for you."
"Really? Did you get the contract you bid on?"
"I don't know yet. That's not the news."
Peter and Belinda rose so they could watch his face. He gave them a puzzled grin.
"We're going to have a baby."
Sergei looked from Peter to Belinda, "What? Are you sure?"
"Very sure, poor Peter has been dealing with morning sickness with me for the last three weeks."
"Why didn't you tell me?"
"We wanted to do it face to face."
"Hot damn! We've got to tell the folks."
"We can do that tomorrow. Belinda invited them over for a welcome home party."
Sergei kissed Belinda and then Peter, his big hands moving down over two very different but very fine asses. Belinda put to rest her worry that he would find her less attractive, she already knew Peter still wanted her. Later when she said something about it to Miranda she got a huge laugh from her mother-in-law. Miranda then explained that Edward hadn't slowed down a bit while she was pregnant.
Saturday was a beautiful day. The grandpas arrived first as they normally did. Sergei had given them a huge smile, hard hugs and his usual kisses. They had all looked at him with the gaze that told him he'd given it away again, but it was Alex who spoke.
"Okay, what is it?"
"Sergei." That tone, that 'fess up tone that Alex had perfected long ago.
"We wanted to tell everyone at once."
Peter hugged Sergei from behind as Belinda stepped in front of him to be circled by his arms.
Walter looked at Belinda, seeing that she looked a little tired, a little thinner.
"Papa, is that any way to talk in front of our child."
The three men converged on them, they were all still having a six way group hug when Edward and Miranda came through the gate.
"I see they told you." Miranda stated.
"Miranda, you should have been quiet. They probably thought they were going to surprise us."
"Edward, Sergei knew better even if Belinda and Peter didn't."
"Well since you've let that cat out of the bag want to drop the other shoe."
"Edward, you're mixing your metaphors again."
"I know, darling. Tell them."
"It's twins, one of each, a boy for Sergei and a girl for Peter."
"Mom, you can't know that."
Fox looked at Sergei and started laughing, Walter and Alex joined him. Peter shrugged his shoulders as Belinda looked at him and Sergei moaned into his hands. Sometimes having a psychic mother was a real pain in the ass.
Six months later the great-grandpas and three sets of grandparents waited for one of the men to come with the news that it was over. Peter exited the room first carrying a bundle wrapped in traditional pink. His husband with a blue wrapped bundle soon followed him.
The latest additions to the family were welcomed with much cooing, a few tears and as much love as any two babies ever had.
