  • that sounds like something you would do for an acquaintance or friend you don't speak to much. i would just call and tell them (especially bc they are close relatives). is there some reason you don't want to tell them? you didn't say why you're so hesitant in your question.

  • i have no idea why im so hesitant......probably because i know they are gonna scream at me with no end......even though my grandma had my dad at 16 shes still gonna yell at me :/

  • Are you 16? Are you married? why isn't it great news for a grandma to hear?

  • then just do it and get it over with. it will only get worse the longer you wait. you can't hide it for much longer anyway.

  • My sister was hesitant to tell our family (different reasons) but they were actually really happy for her. So you may be surprised by their reaction?! Good luck and I'm sure no matter what they will come around and be thrilled about your little boy :) Congrats!
