The Sims 4 Story Starter Kit: Oh Baby, No!


A new bundle of joy is on the way, but not everyone is excited about it.

Welcome to our fifteenth official Sims 4 Story Starter Kit! If you missed all the info on our Story Starter Kit series, you can read more about what they are and how they work in our introductory article!

This month, we’re bringing you a pair of newlyweds who are starting a family sooner than expected and dad’s not so sure he’s ready for fatherhood.

Story Starter Kit: Oh Baby, No!

The Sims 4 Story Starter Kit

Isaac, being the middle child of a whopping twelve kids, knew from a young age that he didn’t ever want a big family. As in, no children at all. Ever. He grew up being either pestered or forgotten about by all his siblings and even his parents. There was never any in-between. Either he was in the way or he didn’t exist. There were eleven other children all fiercely competing for the attention of two people who only had so much attention to give. This family dynamic created a strong dislike of children in Isaac as he got older. He saw them as nothing more than little energy leeches, sucking all the happiness out of every adult around them.

But he did always admire the love his parents had for each other. It seemed to be the only positive thing in the house he grew up in. He always knew he wanted to get married to someone he loved just as much as his father loved his mother. She’d just have to be okay with never having children. When he met Danika at a coffee shop on his lunch break, he knew from the moment he saw her that he wanted her to be his wife one day. It was love at first sight, just like the movies.

But Danika came from a very different background than Isaac. She was an only child of divorced parents and she was always lonely as a kid. She wished she had a big happy family with lots of siblings to play with and two parents under the same roof who loved each other. Isaac’s nightmare childhood was Danika’s dream childhood. The kind of childhood she wanted to give her own kids one day. She made her desire for lots of children very clear to Isaac early on in their relationship. It was a point of tension for them but blinded by love, they each clung to the hope that the other would change their mind one day if they just stuck it out long enough.

Fast forward a few years and Danika and Isaac bought their first home together as newlyweds. Danika thought the second bedroom would be the perfect baby nursery but Isaac planned to turn it into an office space. Isaac almost won that argument… until Danika took a pregnancy test. It was positive. Danika’s dream, but Isaac’s nightmare was coming true, whether Isaac liked it or not.

Isaac came up with a million semi-valid reasons for why he didn’t jump for joy when Danika told him the “good” news. Their house was too small to raise a family. They were both just getting started in their careers and weren’t financially stable enough for a baby, yet. Isaac needed that second bedroom for a home office. But the real reason was that he just didn’t want to be a father. At all. Period.

Still, he loves Danika more than anything in the world. Maybe just one baby won’t be so bad. Not if it’s with Danika… right? But the more Danika gushes about the baby, the more Isaac dreads the day the baby actually arrives. While his wife is busy furnishing the baby nursery and painting beautiful things to decorate it, Isaac is running away from his problems by fishing; a hobby he finds relaxing after a stressful day at the office. And stressful nights at home, too, apparently.

Will Isaac change his outlook on children once he holds his own child in his arms? Or will the new arrival signal the end of a once-loving marriage, giving their child the same sad, lonely childhood Danika had? Does some kind of middle ground even exist in a situation like this?
