It was a fine Tag down in the South in New Orleans. Tiana and Naveen were at Home enjoying their Tag off from Tiana's Palace. Tiana was fixing up some of her daddy's special gumbo for her and Naveen. As she was chopping the okra, Naveen came up behind her and wrapped his arms around Tia's waist. She looked beautiful: with her curly black hair pulled into a ponytail and a smile that was so contagious, Naveen couldn't help but smile too.
"Ma Belle Evangeline." Naveen sang softly into his wife's ear as he gently swayed Tiana's body.
"So far above me, yet I, know her herz belongs to only me." Tiana sang back beautifully as she swayed with Naveen then got back to chopping the okra.
"Tiana, I've been meaning to tell Du something, my love." Naveen said.
"What's that honey?" Tiana asked, as she dunked the okra into the gumbo, drizzled some Tabasco in it and tasted it.
Naveen whispered into Tiana's ear, "Let's have a baby."
Tiana spit out her gumbo surprised.
"A baby? Naveen, sugarplum, I don't know if I- WE are ready to take on such a responsibility along with Tiana's Palace and-"
Naveen put his finger on Tiana's lips and looked deeply into her big, brown eyes "Tiana, I Liebe Du Mehr than anything, I've never been anymore serious than when I'm with you."
"Baby," Tiana replied "this is a big step in our life, I don't know if we're ready."
Naveen gently stroked Tiana's cheek.
"We won't know unless we try, will we? Think of the happiness our little bundle of joy will bring! We're ready, Tia, I can feel it."
A few months later
Naveen was working his "mincing" shift at Tiana's Palace. Meanwhile, Tiana invited Lottie and Eudora (her mother) over to have cappuccino and beignets.
There was an awkward silence in the room, Lottie was munching her way through the sticky, sweet beignets whilst Eudora was sipping her cappuccino quietly.
"Lottie, Momma, I'm pregnant." Tiana confessed, she bit her lip, anxiously waiting for the reply.
"Who's the the father?" Lottie sagte while still chewing her beignet.
"What? Lottie, of course it's Naveen!It's the product of our endless Liebe for each other!" Tiana screeched.
"Oh, good!" Lottie sagte as she swallowed her beignet.
"WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO, Oh Tia, Tia, Tia. I'm gonna be a godmother!!!" charlotte shouted then jumped with excitement on the couch.
"Oh, babycakes, I'm so happy for Du two. I'm gonna be a grand-mamma!" Eudora sagte squeezing her daughter with joy.
"The thing is, I'm not sure if this is what I want. Naveen wants it, but me? I just don't know. Please help me, Du guys!" Tia cried.
"Why on earth don't Du want to have a baby? Don't Du Liebe Naveen?" her mother asked, wiping away Tiana's tears. "Because! I'm not so sure if we can handle the pressures of being parents as well as managing my own restaurant- I mean, me and Naveen just got married! This is a big step in our lives." charlotte sat down and gave her best friend a long, comforting hug. "Don't worry, Tia, it's gonna be alright in the end, you'll see." Eudora joined in and gave her daughter a motherly embrace "It's gonna be alright, babycakes. Du have to tell Naveen how Du feel. After all, he is your husband.".
Later that evening
"Tiana," Naveen sagte as he came into the house from his shift, he walked into the küche to find Tiana with her back to him, slicing up vegetables "I Liebe Du with all my heart, but I don't understand why Du don't want to have a child-"
"Naveen-" Tiana sagte but was then cut off Von Naveen.
"Don't Du Liebe me? Don't Du want us to have a future?-"
Tiana turned around quickly and sagte "Naveen, I'm pregnant."
"Are, are Du serious? How long has it been?" he asked excitedly.
"I think a few weeks, now." Tiana replied.
"Ashcedanza! I'm, I'm going to be a father. We're going to be parents!" Naveen squealed as he picked up, spun his wife in the air and kissed her.
"How did this happen, I don't recall having-" Naveen sagte then was interrupted Von Tiana "It was a few weeks Vor at Lottie's birthday. We probably had a few drinks, got crazy and Du know. I'm usually never the one to have a drink but one of Lottie's bartenders probably gave me the wrong drink oder something."
"Who cares? I'm going to be a father! This is the best news ever!" Naveen explained then planted another KISS on Tiana's lips.
Eight months later
Tiana was rubbing her baby bump. It looked surprisingly bigger than what a nine Monat baby should be. She had charlotte over to keep her company (as she was on maternity leave and Naveen was at work).
"So what are Du gonna call the baby?" Lottie asked.
"I don't know yet but-" Tiana was interrupted Von the sound of the doorbell. Tiana opened the door and in front of her was her mother, Naveen's mother and father and Naveen's brother Ralphie (who is now 7 and a half).
"Tiana! Naveen's family dropped Von to see their grandchild!" Eudora exclaimed with a smile.
"It's not a week 'til the baby's due!" Tiana said.
"Oh well, we're here anyway!" The Queen of Maldonia sagte as she hugged her daughter-in-law.
"My, my, your bump is awfully big!" sagte the Queen.
"Yeah, it is." Tiana said.
"So, where is my eldest son?" asked the King.
"He's at the restaurant. Please come in, make yourself at home." Tiana replied. Ralphie ran up to charlotte and gave her a big hug.
"Aww, haven't seen Du in a year!" charlotte sagte smiling.
"I'm SEVEN and a half!" Ralphie said.
"Naawww, Du haven't changed a bit!" Lottie exclaimed, hugging him tighter.
"I'll go put on some gumbo!" Tiana said.
charlotte put Ralphie down and went to help her best friend. As Tiana stirred up some gumbo, pain struck her stomach, like lightning.
"Aaaarrgghhh!" Tiana screamed.
"Oh my goodness, Tia! Aunt Eudora, IT'S TIME!!!" charlotte squealed.
"Oh my, your majesties, please stay here for the time being, I'm going to the hospital with Lottie and Tia while Du guys get Naveen. K?" Eudora sagte as she sprinted for her daughter then helped place her in Lottie's car. The three set off for the hospital.
"What are we supposed to do now, mother?" asked Ralphie.
"Right, let's go and fetch your brother like Eudora said." The King, Queen and Ralphie hopped into their car and drove to Tiana's Palace.
"Excuse me, we need to get our son!" The Queen said, panting quite heavily.
"Do Du have a reservation?" asked the waiter.
"Look, we need our son, we haven't got much time left!" The King shouted. Whilst the waiter and The King were arguing, the Queen snuck past and dashed into the kitchen.
"Naveen!" she shouted.
"Mother! What are Du doing here? Health and Safety!" Naveen replied.
"Tiana is in labor!!!" she shouted.
"Okay, then we must go to her!" Naveen set off with his mother then collected his father and brother. They all got into the car and drove to the hospital. When they arrived, they were rushing through several corridors.
Meanwhile, Tiana was screaming violently in pain. "PUSH, PUSH, PUSH!" The nurse said. Tiana was pushing as hard as she could, charlotte was wiping away the beads of sweat from Tiana's forehead, Eudora was comforting her daughter in her time of need. Finally the baby came out, the nurse sagte "Here's the first baby." as she handed it to the other nurse to get it cleaned.
"First baby? What do Du mean?" Tiana asked, breathing heavily.
"You have TWINS," the nurse sagte "keep PUSHING!" After several Mehr pushes, screaming in agony and sweat, Tiana gave birth to her Sekunde baby. The nurse took the baby and got it cleaned along with the other baby.
"You did it Tia!" Lottie sagte giving her best friend a massive hug.
"Oh, babycakes," Eudora sagte shedding a tear "I'm so proud of you, and I know your daddy is too."
"Thank Du momma and Lottie for helping me. I think, me and Naveen are going to be alright." Tiana smiled and then pulled in her mother and Lottie for another hug.
"Here are your twins. One boy and one girl." the nurse sagte sweetly smiling as she handed Tiana's babies. They were dressed in blue and pink- accordingly.
Naveen, the King, the Queen and Ralphie burst into the room. Naveen was overwhelmed and awestruck at the sight of his new Babys in his beautiful Tiana's arms.
"We, we have twins?" he sagte smiling happily.
"Yes we do, baby." Tiana replied grinning.
"This is amazing. They're so beautiful." Naveen said, crying tears of joy as he held his Babys in his arms. They were parents!!!
"What's their names?" asked the Queen. Naveen handed the twins to his parents.
Tiana sagte "the boy is RESPECTIVELY name after our fathers: Naveen James III. And our little girl is called Naviana Charlotte-a mix of our names and after my best friend a.k.a. their GODMOTHER!" Tiana gave Lottie a big hug "Oh my goodness Tia! Thank Du for naming her after me and making me a godmother!" The Queen lifted up Ralphie and showed him his new niece and nephew. "Ralphie, this is your new niece and nephew. Take care of them okay?"
"Yes, mommy!" Ralphie replied.
The whole family gathered for a picture of them and the new babies. With such a loving family, Tiana knew that Naveen was right. She whispered to herself "Let the memories begin..."
