Can a player get pregnant Stardew Valley?

Answered by Edward Huber

In Stardew Valley, players have the option to start a family and have kids. However, it’s important to note that only the female character can become pregnant and have children in the game. This means that if you’re playing as a male character, you won’t have the option to get pregnant.

To have children in Stardew Valley, there are a few things you need to do first. Firstly, you’ll need to be married to one of the eligible marriage candidates in the game. These candidates include Abigail, Alex, Elliott, Emily, Haley, Harvey, Leah, Maru, Penny, Sam, Sebastian, and Shane. Once you’ve formed a romantic relationship with one of these characters and raised their heart level to 10 hearts, you can propose to them with a Mermaid’s Pendant, which can be purchased from the Old Mariner on the beach during a rainy day.

After getting married, you’ll need to upgrade your house to the second level. This can be done by visiting Robin, the local carpenter, and selecting the option to upgrade your house. The second upgrade will provide an additional room, which will be necessary for your future child.

Once your house is upgraded, you’ll need to wait for some time before the game gives you the option to have children. It’s important to note that the time required can vary, but it usually takes around 14 days after the house upgrade. During this time, you can continue to build your relationship with your spouse and engage in other activities in the game.

After the waiting period, you’ll receive a message from your spouse indicating that they’re expecting a child. This is when the game gives you the option to choose the gender of your child. You can either have a boy or a girl, but you’re limited to a maximum of two children in total.

Having a child in Stardew Valley is a significant event, as it will change your daily routine and responsibilities. You’ll need to take care of your child by providing them with attention and gifts, just like you would with your spouse. Your child will also grow up over time, and eventually, they’ll start walking and talking.

It’s worth mentioning that the option to have children in Stardew Valley is entirely optional. If you prefer not to have children or have reached the maximum limit of two, you can choose not to have any more kids by declining the option when it’s presented to you.

While players can get pregnant and have children in Stardew Valley, it’s important to note that only the female character can become pregnant. By following the steps of getting married, upgrading your house, and waiting for the game to give you the option, you’ll be able to start a family and experience the joys and responsibilities of parenthood in the game.
