Shelby couldn’t get the smile off her face. She looked at the man still sleeping and fought hard to resist the urge to wake him up. It was a fight she lost.

Philip looked at his wife and smiled before kissing her good morning. He tried to pull her down with him into the bed but she moved awake.

“Wake up, sleepy head. I need to tell you something.”

Philip pouted but sat up anyway. He slid an arm around his wife. “What is so important that it keeps you from joining me in bed for some morning cuddles?”

“Those morning cuddles are what is important. Well, what those cuddles led to is.”

Philip was confused. “It’s too early for riddles, love.”

She leaned closer to him and whispered in his ear. “We are having a baby.”

He pulled back and looked at her. “Really?”

Shelby nodded and smiled. “I’m pregnant.”

He pulled her close and kissed her softly. “I’m going to be here for every second of it this time. If anybody even thinks of taking me away from you, they will have a terrible fight on their hands.”
