The Sims 4 Pregnancy: how to have a baby
In The Sims 4, pregnancy is a popular way for Sims to multiply and make more Sims. Having babies is especially important in a legacy game to play with multiple generations of a Sim household. Some players don’t know how to have a baby in Sims 4, and that’s where this guide comes in.
There are several things to note when discussing pregnancy in The Sims 4. These include the chances of pregnancy, adoption, having twins and triplets, the gender of the baby, and the ways to speed up the process of pregnancy. The following guide will discuss this along with some tips
How to Get Pregnant to Have a Baby in The Sims 4
Pregnancy, by default, can be experienced by any young adult and adult Sim by interacting with a young adult/adult/elder male using the Try for baby interaction. Only Sims with the Get pregnant and Put the other speakers gender customization settings can interact together to have a baby.
The Try for baby interaction becomes available when a couple has completed the Relationship Indicator 40-50% and is officially in a romantic, engaged or married relationship.
The default chance of getting pregnant is 80%. So your Sim is extremely likely to conceive on the first try. If you’re unlucky with the randomizer, there’s no need to worry. You can keep trying until you succeed, as fertility does not drop below 80%.
How to adopt a baby
Adoption is a possible alternative to pregnancy if you want to expand your family. Any young adult or older Sim can adopt a child. You can do this by opening the Housework option on your phone and selecting Hire a service.
Picking out Adopt a child will then display a list of adoptees. You can choose to adopt one of the Babies, Toddlers and Children lists. This process costs §1,000 and you can only adopt one child at a time.
