Justin stood frozen in his stance as the words that Sylvia said, settled in. He didn't know what to say; too many things were racing through his mind.† His blue eyes looking intensively at his wife. "Wha-What did you just say?"
Sylvia sighed. Swallowing the knot forming inside her throat. "Y-Your going to-be a-daddy." She stumbled over her own words.
Sylvia nodded, her eyes starting to quickly brimming with tears.
Justin looked down. He sighed; a slight laughed escaping his lips. He looked up again; his beautiful sapphires brimmed with tears. Within a second, he wrapped his arms around Sylvia, lifting her gently off the ground. "Oh my god... I can't believe it... I'm going to be a dad." He said happily. Sylvia smiled, tears running slowly down her flushed cheeks. "Oh baby, this is the best news I ever heard."
Julia sighed happily, as she watched them. She laughed slightly. "See Sylvia and you thought Justin was going to be upset."
Sylvia smiled, as she looked at Julia. Justin laughed. "Why did you think I was going to be upset?"
"I dunno, I just thought you weren't ready to be a father yet, that's all."
Justin laughed. "Silly girl." He said, and placed a soft kiss on her lips.
Lance clapped his hands. "All right, well now that we've heard the good news, let's call the other guys and their girls and letís go celebrate." He suggested. They all agreed, as they called up the other guys, got ready and headed out the house.

* One week later *
Ashley sighed, as she walked into the living of her two bedroom apartment. "What is it Allison?"
A little girl with light brown, shoulder length hair and beautiful green eyes looked up from the television. "Mommy, is that daddy on TV?" She asked, as she looked back at the television. Ashley looked at the screen. It was Lance and Julia's video playing on MTV. It ended, as Carson came on the screen, alright that's was our number 2 video, True Love, by Julia Davis, featuring her fiancť NSyncís Lance Bass."
Allison turned off the TV and looked at her mother. "Was that daddy?"
Ashley sighed, as she sat next to her 4 year old daughter. "Yes, Alli that's your daddy." She said, as Allison sat on her lap.
"When we I see daddy again?" She said sadly.
Ashley sighed. As she thought about what Carson said on TV... Lance and Julia Davis were getting married. Suddenly, an enormous smile spread across her face. "Soon sweetie. Hopefully soon."
