"I'm pregnant." Ivy said. I completely froze.
"I know you properly hate me and want nothing to do with me or my child and I totally get that-"
"What are you talking about? There is nothing I would want more than to be in this kid's life." I said hugging her. She started crying into my shirt.
"Of course. I love you, Ivy, and I am going to always love you and this kid."
"I love you too." She said in between sobs. I was so happy to hear her say that.
"Do you know if it is a boy or girl yet?" I asked her.
"No but Renee does. I think she is planning a party."
"That sounds awesome. I hope it is a girl."
"Yh I always wanted a daughter so I could spoil her rotten" she playfully punched me. Just then Renee walked into my dressing room with Anthony, Pippa and Jaz behind her. I was pushed out of the way by Jaz and Pippa.
"We missed you so much!" Jasmine said.
"Renee just told us everything. Congrats on......" Pippa trailed of looking at her ring finger and then at me realizing I didn't purpose.
"On your baby. Is it a boy or girl?" she asked
"I don't know. But Renee does." She responded.
"Okay this was a lovely reunion and all but the second act will be starting soon and I am the only one not dressed. So if you guys don't mind but....." I said pointing to the door.
"They all left except Anthony who I had a feeling was not done with me.
"So you're going to be a dad?" he said.
"Yh. I can't believe it."
"Are you sure this the best time to start a family? I mean the show just got to Broadway a couple of months ago."
"Is there ever a right time for a family? What are you getting at?"
"Nothing I am just saying I could do a number on your job and your relationship with Ivy."
"Well Lin makes it work. Why can't I?" I asked getting a little angry that he was not being supportive.
"Well you're not Lin."
"Well what do you want me to do? Just not be in the kid's life?"
"I mean it would be a good thing to do for your career."
"Get out. Before I kick your ass out." I said pointing to the door. He left and I sat on the couch trying to process everything that just happened. Why would Anthony suggest I not be in the child's life? My train of thought was cut off by a knock at the door.
"Come in" Faith, the girl who fixed my mikes came in.
"Daveed why are you not dressed yet? You have 10 minutes till show time. You do realize you are in the first song right?" I looked at my watch.
