If you’re looking for a way to expand your family in the game, it might be the right time to have a baby in Stardew Valley! This can be a very rewarding process and create a whole new aspect to this game, so why not give it a try?
There are a few ways for players to have kids. It mostly depends on what suits your character more, so no option is truly better than the other. We will go through all of them, so you could choose what is the most suitable option for you and your game.
Take a look at the Stardew Valley baby guide below.
Having a Baby in Stardew Valley
There are three different options players should know about: biological, adoption, and multiplayer. Each option can be a great way to expand your game and create something new.
Here’s what you can expect from each of them:
A Biological Baby in Stardew Valley
If you choose to have a pregnancy, here’s what will happen in the game.
Once you have a husband or a wife in the game, a 10-heart relationship, and a nursery, you will get an opportunity to have a baby.
The game itself will ask you if you want to proceed with this, and you can choose yes or no. Don’t worry, you will be asked again at some point if you choose that you’re not yet ready for kids.
However, keep in mind that your spouse won’t ask you this every night. There is actually quite a small chance for that, so you might have to wait a little bit until you have a bigger family.
The pregnancy itself will take 2 weeks. After that, you will have your very own Stardew Valley baby! It can be either a girl or a boy (you can only have two kids in the game).
Adopting a Baby
There is also the possibility to adopt a baby. However, the process is quite similar and it will also take 2 weeks. Your character’s spouse will even inform you that everything is going well (the documents are signed), so you can relax and wait for the new addition to your family.
The main difference is that it will arrive in the night after having been left by the adoption agency at your door. It does sound a bit spooky, but maybe that’s the way things happen in Pelican Town!
Other than that, nothing changes, and you can still have two adopted kids in the game.
Having a Baby in Multiplayer
If you play with your friends, you can still create a small family to live on the farm. The players just have to agree to have a child and they can move in together to raise it.
To be fair, having a child in multiplayer can be a very fun experience for everyone involved! It might take time to divide the tasks and decide who does what, but it will be worth it.
The whole process of having a baby doesn’t really change in multiplayer.
Becoming Friends with a Baby in Stardew Valley
Don’t forget that you should still interact with the kid even if it’s just a baby!
Your friendship with them can still increase or decrease depending on what happens in the game. For example, if you don’t interact with the kid for the whole day, you will lose 2 points. This is something that many players tend to forget because it seems that a baby is just sitting there nicely in its crib. However, spending quality time together is a big part of the game once your family gets bigger.
The kids might also attend various events with you, so it will feel like a true family enjoying their time in Pelican Town. If your spouse takes them to the event, you can see the kid crawling around them and having fun together.
Whether you’re planning to have a biological child or adopt, this can be a great feature of Stardew Valley!
Just don’t forget to prepare for the new addition and have fun.
