Rebirth to a Military Marriage: Good Morning Chief - chapter 1171
Zhai Sheng was capable of having triplets. He would not admit that he was jealous of him!
“You’re right. I will make a phone call first.” Zhai Hua reached her hand naturally toward Tian Dong, searching for his cell phone in his pants pocket.
Tian Dong had resigned to fate. He slanted his body so that it would be easier for Zhai Hua to take the cell phone.
After getting Tian Dong’s cell phone, the person that Zhai Hua called was not her mother or her brother. It was the auntie who sent Nan Nan to the hospital and went back home. “Auntie, yes, it’s me. Nan Nan has given birth to the babies. No, they are not twins, but triplets. Two brothers and one younger sister. Yes, you have to prepare more soup for Nan Nan. She will have a harder time in the future now that the babies are born.”
Zhai Hua raised her head to gaze at Tian Dong after she ended the call.
Tian Dong blushed slightly. “Why are you looking at me?” Could it be that after seeing the triplets, she wanted to marry him so that they could have kids?
The atmosphere was good. Zhai Hua reached her hand into Tian Dong’s pants pocket again. Tian Dong’s heart could not help but flutter and he steered his thoughts in that direction.
“I am not staring at you. Didn’t you just return from your overseas study in America? You should know some classmates in America. Do you have any knowledge about baby formulas? Which country and which brand of baby formula is the best?”
Nan Nan had three babies at one go. If the auntie prepared a lot of tonics for Nan Nan, she would still be able to breastfeed them now that they were still young.
When they grew older and had a larger appetite, unless Nan Nan had a lot of milk, she would not be able to feed all her babies.
If so, they would have to feed the babies with baby formula.
“This…” Tian Dong was a man. He could not possibly know anything about baby formulas.
However, now that the topic was brought up, Tian Dong felt that there was a need to know more about it.
Zhai Hua had been spending half her time in the army and half her time at the Zhai family’s residence in the past half a year. In particular, since August, she would spend all her time at home.
Tian Dong knew that Zhai Hua did that to take care of the heavily pregnant Qiao Nan.
After Qiao Nan gave birth to babies, Zhai Hua would return to the army that she loved sooner or later.
Tian Dong knew Zhai Hua well, and he had no wish to stop her from doing what she wanted.
In other words, when they had their own child, Zhai Hua might return to the army as soon as she completed her confinement. By then, Zhai Hua would not be able to feed the baby and their child would have to take baby formula.
If he did the research now to determine which brand of baby formula had the most nutrients and was suitable for babies, he would not have a headache when he had a child with Zhai Hua.
“Give me some time. You are not in a hurry. I will take some time to do research. I will seek advice and recommendations from the experts, and I will ask my friends overseas to buy them for me. I know of several friends who studied overseas in America, Australia, and other countries. We will buy whichever baby formula that is the best.”
Tian Dong had made up his mind to look up information on baby formulas. He could start from Doctor Wei, who just returned from his overseas study.
Even though he was not from the gynecology department, he would know more about this topic than him.
“This will do.” Zhai Hua nodded. “Leave the cell phone with me. I still have to make a few phone calls. You can go ahead to do your research. Now that we have three babies at one go, it is better to decide on a baby formula as soon as possible.”
After coming to a decision, they parted ways to do what they had agreed on. One of them went to search for the best baby formula, while the other went to notify her family that Qiao Nan had triplets.
Miao Jing was tired to the bones after attending events with Zhai Yaohui the entire day. She slumped on the bed as soon as she reached the hotel room.
She wished that she could lie on the bed and there was no need for her to get up to have dinner. She longed for a good night’s sleep to recharge herself.
Just then, the cell phone in her bag rang. Miao Jing knitted her eyebrows. She might be tired, but she was worried that the phone call might be from her family.
Miao Jing was constantly reminded of the fact that there was a pregnant lady at home and she might go into labor anytime.
“I’ll answer it.” Zhai Yaohui knew that Miao Jing was tired. He came out from the restroom and took the cell phone out of the bag. He pressed the answer button. “Is this Dongzi or Zhai Hua?”
Now that Qiao Nan was pregnant, Zhai Hua no longer carried her cell phone with her. If needed, she would use other people’s cell phones. Zhai Yaohui had been used to the fact that Tian Dong and his daughter would share Tian Dong’s line.
“Dad, it’s me!”
Zhai Yaohui could hear the excited voice of his daughter from the other end of the phone. She was so loud that he felt a piercing pain in his ears. “I know…”
“Is that Hua Hua?!” Miao Jing sat up right away. She ran to Zhai Yaohui and snatched the phone from him. “Hua Hua, why did you call me at this time of the day? You should be at home to keep Nan Nan company at this time. Why are you using Dongzi’s phone?”
“Mom, Nan Nan has given birth. I am at the hospital. The auntie will bring soup to the hospital in a while.”
“Given birth?!” Miao Jing straightened her back, shouting at the top of her voice. Her shouts were more deafening than Zhai Hua’s screams. “Has she really given birth? It is only September now. Twins? How many boys are there? Are there any girls?” There were many possibilities as Qiao Nan had twins.
Even if she did not have any grandsons, Miao Jing would be equally happy to have two granddaughters. She would treat them like little princesses.
“Mom, Nan Nan has given you two grandsons and one granddaughter!”
“Ah, two grandsons, one grand… Wait a minute. I didn’t hear clearly. Can you repeat yourself?” Miao Jing counted with her fingers and she stiffened. Did Hua Hua make a mistake? Shouldn’t it be one grandson and one granddaughter? Or could it be that she was too excited that she had heard wrongly? It should be one grandson and one granddaughter instead of two grandsons and one granddaughter.
“Mom, triplets. It’s triplets. We have an addition of three babies to our family today!” Zhai Hua knew that her mother must be feeling bewildered and confused. She felt the same way when she heard two babies crying and the nurse came out telling that there was another baby in the womb. “Mom, I have two nephews and one niece. They are beautiful. They are so soft, and they look especially well!!”
There was a loud noise on the other end of the phone. It was as if Miao Jing was too excited and the cell phone had dropped onto the floor.
Fortunately, their room had a carpeted floor and hence the cell phone did not smash to pieces. Zhai Hua could faintly hear her mother shouting in joy. “I have two grandsons and one granddaughter. I have three grandchildren. I want to go home to take a good look at my grandsons and granddaughter. I don’t want to stay with you. I am going back to carry my grandsons and granddaughter!”
Now that she had grandsons and granddaughter who smelled nice and were soft and tender, she could not be bothered with Zhai Yaohui, the old man!
