Ronnie and Brad had a relaxing Christmas and then of course Brad had to go back to practice the day after Christmas so Ronnie decided to go out to lunch with a couple of her girlfriends, Elizabeth and Sarah . Ronnie was waiting at the table for her friends and then saw them walk in together. They saw Ronnie sitting at the table and came over and sat down.
"What's up Ronnie, we got your message that it was urgent that we meet for lunch. Is everything ok?" Elizabeth asked looking at her friend.
Sarah looked at Ronnie too with concern.
"Nothing is wrong and everything is right" Ronnie smiled brightly at her friends.
"Spill then smiley" Sarah joked.
"Brad and I are......" Ronnie started and then Sarah interrupted, "You two are finally engaged or already married".
"No" Ronnie said.
"Pregnant" Elizabeth suggested and Ronnie nodded.
"Oh my god really I am right" Elizabeth said as she hugged Ronnie and then Sarah joined in the hug too.
They all laughed and then settled themselves back in their seats.
"Yes, Brad and I are expecting a baby and I am super excited and so is Brad" she said patting her abdomen.
"This is wonderful news and I am so happy for you" Elizabeth said.
"I am happy for you two too" Sarah smiled.
The girls continued their conversation and ate their lunch.
Meanwhile at practice Brad was working out with the guys and they were trash talking about the next team they were playing.
Brad has also told his teammates that he and Ronnie were expecting a baby and of course all his teammates were thrilled about the news. And they were all agreed that Brad would be a great dad and that made Brad feel good.
That evening Brad got home to find Ronnie making dinner in the kitchen.
"Hey sweetie how are you?" Brad asked taking Ronnie's hand and pulling her close to him and then giving her a quick kiss.
"I am good and had a fun day with the girls at lunch and told them about the baby. Of course Elizabeth and Sarah are thrilled beyond belief and can't wait to help me out with a baby shower" Ronnie smiled.
"That's wonderful and I told the guys and they are happy for us too. They said we need some good things to happen to us now and this baby is a great way to start our life together and I agree totally" Brad said giving Ronnie another kiss.
"I agree too and love you Brad" Ronnie said hugging Brad tight.
"Love you too sweetie" Brad said holding Ronnie close.
Then the happy couple enjoyed a quiet romantic dinner together at home.
