Would this be ok or not really because he has older kids?

I'm trying to come up with a cute way to tell my fiancé when we get pregnant and I stumbled on a site that has daddy and baby shirts and was thinking of buying those. My only reservation is that he has 3 older kids. The shirt says first mate, would that be ok or should I figure out something else so his kids don't feel slighted?

Oh man that's really cute, idk. Wouldn't the kids understand it's a sailing reference or would they just see it as saying the baby is number one?

I don't know. He's really into the nautical theme that's why I thought this would be cute. His kids are 14 and 12.5 and they aren't his bio kids (he adopted them) so I really really don't want to step on any toes and make them feel bad whatsoever.

I think at that age they would understand. Maybe you can get a small gift for each of them too so they don't feel left out.

That's a cute idea. I know his daughter will be over the moon excited to have a younger sibling but his 14 year old isn't going to care whatsoever.

I wonder if a big sister shirt would seem to babyish?

As long as the style isn't too cutesy I think it would be great.

Nah I'll find something more 'grown up'

Thanks! Off to hunt down a shirt and come up with something for his son.

Shouldn't you actually get pregnant first?

No its not!!!!!

My oldest loves her big sister, but shes also only five.

Maybe you could sit down with dd and come up with matching sister shirts???! One that will look cool and not too "babyish"
