Vegeta could only stare at his mate, his eyes wide with disbelief. There was no way Kakarot could be pregnant. Yes it was possible for Saiyan males to get pregnant, but only if they’re in heat…Wait… That night he and Kakarot bonded…Kakarot was in heat that night… Vegeta closed his eyes and sighed softly. He wasn’t sure if he was ready to be a father or not. He was about to say something when he felt a warm hand touch his cheek.
“Geta…?” Kakarot’s voice sounded sad and scared. Vegeta placed his hand over Kakarot’s before opening his eyes to look his mate in the face. He could see it in his eyes…Kakarot was worried and scared. He knew that he couldn’t let Kaka get all worked up. He had to say something. Maybe this wouldn’t be so bad. Kakarot was pregnant with their baby; the first full blooded Saiyan born in decades. He managed a small smile before placing a hand on his mate’s cheek, pulling him in for a kiss. Kakarot kissed him back and sighed happily. Once they pulled away from each other, Vegeta was finally able to speak.
“How long, Kaka? How long have you known?” He asked, sounding rather curious.
“Oh I found out last week. You and I had sex while I was in heat about six weeks ago, so I must be almost a month along.” Kakarot replied softly.
“Oh my…this is…completely wonderful, babe! And it’s the first full blooded Saiyan in decades!” Vegeta hugged his mate tightly before remembering that he had just proposed to his mate just moments before he had been told about the pregnancy. He pulled away from Kakarot and grabbed the box, bringing the ring out and holding it to Kakarot.
“Y-you still want to marry me!?” Kakarot asked, sounding rather surprised.
“Of course I do! Did you think I wouldn’t want you after you told me about this?” Vegeta asked, tilting his head. Kakarot nodded and looked down. “Listen to me, Kakarot. I will always want you. It doesn’t matter if you’re sick, injured, moody, or pregnant, I will always be by your side. And I promise…” Vegeta paused and slipped the ring onto Kakarot’s finger, “I promise that I won’t let anyone hurt you or our baby, I’d die for you both before allowing you or the baby to get hurt. You’re my mate and we are bonded now. It’s my duty to protect you.” He pulled Kakarot close to him and hugged him tightly. Kakarot hugged back, crying on Vegeta’s shoulder.
“Geta…I love you so much! I know you’ll be a great father to this baby. Oh I can’t wait to tell the boys that they’re getting a new brother or sister and that they’re going to become real brothers!” Kakarot was so excited, tears still falling down his face. Vegeta wiped them away and smiled. He knew that these next few months wouldn’t be easy for Kakarot. The pregnancy would cause mood swings, morning sickness, and he’d probably be in pain some days, but Vegeta was willing to help Kakarot through all this. Just like he promised.
“Should I call the boys and tell them, Geta?” Kakarot asked, smiling softly.
“You should indeed. They need to know as soon as possible.” Vegeta agreed. Kakarot called for Goten and Trunks, who came rushing down the stairs, hand in hand. Vegeta gave them a surprised look. He had never seen the two of them holding hands like that before. He knew they were close but he didn’t think they were that close. The two boys stopped in front of their dads and looked up at them.
“What is it daddy?” Goten asked in an innocent tone.
“Yeah, what’s up?” Trunks had more of a smart tone, clearly getting that one from Vegeta.
“Sit down boys.” Vegeta told them. They obeyed immediately, just staring at their fathers.
“So boys. Vegeta and I have some news for you two. First thing is…Vegeta and I are going to get married. So you guys are going to be step brothers!” Goten and Trunks stared at Kakarot for a minute before both of them formed a huge grin on their faces. They jumped up into the air with excitement and hugged each other tightly. “Secondly. Now this may come as a shock to you both but…in a few months you two are going to have a new brother or sister.” They both stared at Kakarot blankly.
“What do you mean, daddy?” Goten asked.
“Well Goten. I’m pregnant with Vegeta’s baby.” Kakarot replied in a calm tone.
“You’re WHAT!?” Trunks exclaimed, his eyes growing really wide.
“That’s right Trunks. Kaka is pregnant with my child. It is possible for male Saiyans to bare children. There are hardly any female Saiyans out there, so we had to adapt. It may be possible for one of you two to get pregnant one day too, but please don’t rush into anything. You’re both still too young to even think about that.” Vegeta watched the two boys carefully. They both had confused expressions on their faces, but finally Goten spoke.
“I hope it’s another brother!” He laughed, pumping a fist into the air.
“I agree!” Trunks did the same. They both seemed completely fine with this now. Vegeta and Kakarot watched as the two boys hugged each other in excitement. Once again, Vegeta wondered just how close these two were with each other. If they really did feel that way about each other, then that was fine, especially since they aren’t related by blood but Vegeta just hoped that they were taking things slowly. He knew for sure that he’d have to have a talk with them later. That talk…Vegeta thought quietly to himself.
“Hey Geta.” Kakarot said suddenly.
“Yes, Kaka? What is it?” Vegeta replied, looking over at his mate.
“I’m hungry!” Kakarot exclaimed, with an innocent look on his face. That wasn’t much of a surprise at all, especially now that he’s carrying a child.
“Alright. I’ll go get dinner stared. You stay here and relax. Maybe let Trunks and Goten play with the puppy.” Vegeta smiled and kissed Kakarot’s head before making his way to the kitchen to start cooking up a big meal for all of them.
Goku sat his new puppy down on the floor between Goten and Trunks. He had decided to name her Snow, because of her snowy fur. He then stretched out and settled down on the couch, watching the boys take turns playing with the dog. He smiled softly and placed a hand on his stomach. He just couldn’t wait to find out if he was having a boy or a girl, he secretly hoped it was a girl. He had always wanted a daughter, but he couldn’t be the one to decide that one. Boy or girl, it didn’t matter so long as the baby was healthy. He wrapped his tail around his thigh and yawned slightly before he felt someone tugging at his pants. It was Goten.
“Daddy?” Goten asked quietly.
“What is it, Goten?’ Goku replied, picking his son up and setting him on his lap.
“The baby isn’t going to replace me…is it?” Goku’s eyes got all wide when Goten asked that. He was used to being the youngest and getting all the attention. Now he felt like he was going to be replaced. That made Goku slightly sad. He hugged his son close and ran his fingers through his hair.
“Goten, this baby is not going to replace you. And I promise I won’t ignore you when it comes. It’s just going to need a little more attention, that’s all. But I’m sure Trunks will give you a lot of attention, like he always does.” Goku smiled softly and Goten returned the smile.
“I just wanted to make sure!” He laughed softly, hugged his father again and went back to playing with Trunks and Snow. Goku was really shocked that Goten had asked him that. He’d have to talk to Vegeta later about that one. He wanted all his kids to feel loved the same way. Even Trunks, who wasn’t related to him by blood, but he would soon be Trunks’s other parent and he’d treat them all equally. Eventually, Goku found himself in a deep slumber, allowing himself to be taken away into his dreams. Ever since that night Vegeta saved him from his nightmares, his dreams were nothing but happy ones. That caused Goku to smile slightly in his sleep. He wouldn’t be waking up either; not until the food was ready anyways.
