Among the several features that are present in Stardew Valley, one is the option to get married and start a family. Further, the player can also have and adopt children. That said, in this guide, we will explain how players can get pregnant and have their very own Stardew Valley baby.
How to Have a Baby in Stardew Valley
In order to have a Stardew Valley baby, you must first be married and have upgraded the Farmhouse for the second time, as the second upgrade adds a nursery and an additional room. Next you simply just need to continue playing the game until your spouse asks you if you want to have a child.
There is a 1/20 chance for this event to happen, so you may need to play for a while before you’ll be able to get pregnant and start a family. But when your wife eventually brings up the idea, you will have the option to say either yes or no. If you choose yes either you or your spouse will get pregnant the following day and after 14 days the child will then appear in the nursery crib.
However, for same-sex couples, the wording is a little different but nonetheless still the same process. Instead of asking if you want to have a baby, your spouse will ask if you want to adopt a child and if you say yes, the adoption will take place after 14 days. While waiting for your child, your spouse will inform you that the adoption paperwork has been filled. Then later your child will show up in the middle of the night with a note stating the adoption agency has dropped off your baby.
After your child is either born or adopted it can grow up to Stage 4 which is a toddler, but interestingly enough, your child will never grow past this stage. You can also have up to two kids in total, one male, one female, and can increase your relationship level with them. However, if you should ever tire of your children, well, there is an option to get rid of them.
Children towards the latter portion of the game can be apparently dismissed via using the Dark Shrine of Selfishness that is inside the Witch’s Hut. If you offer the shrine a Prismatic Shard, it will allow you to turn your children into a dove, thus making them leave your farm forever. However, if you intend to use the shrine, be warned as you might make things a little strange and spooky in Stardew Valley.
