On January 30, 2014, Hannah went into the doctor due to intense nausea. We figured it was just a relapse from her having the flu the previous week. In the back of our minds we were wondering.. could she be pregnant? She was having a lot of mood swings, slept more than ever, and didn’t seem to want anything to do with me. We thought.. no way possible. We’ve been smart. About an hour passed and she called me. She starts the conversation by asking, are you sitting down? {Let me just tell you… at this point I felt like my heart was going to explode. I have enough anxiety as it is and when she asked me if I was sitting down.. I knew something was up. I immediately stepped out of my office onto the floor where I could talk.} Sure enough, after a deep breath she said that she was pregnant. I actually reacted a lot better than I thought I would. I knew that it was her body and her emotions were running wild and that all I could do was be as positive and confident as I could be. I knew that that single moment was by far the biggest thing that has ever happened to me in all of my 23 years of life.

Hannah had no choice but to let her mom know right after she found out. Her mom was the one who scheduled the doctors appointment so we knew that we couldn’t just lie our way out of it by saying that they gave her some nausea meds. This was a huge deal. Her mom reacted in a way that any mother would react when their daughter tells her she is pregnant.. {Not to mention, Hannah already has a child, Sophia aka God’s greatest gift to earth, already out of wedlock.} So of course this is a big deal because Hannah and I are not married..YET. We knew that right now was not the time to tell anyone else besides our closest friends; those who we trusted the most. We wanted to get answers from the doctor before we told her dad as well as my family. We knew that there would be a million questions asked and we wanted to know that first of all.. the baby was still alive and healthy inside of her because so many things can go wrong this early in a pregnancy.Each day that passed consisted of soul searching, praying, confusion, questioning God’s will, and nerves. We knew that having an abortion would be the easiest way out of this situation. But Hannah and I are both firm in our religious beliefs and we firmly believe that God puts people in this world for a reason.

Just to give you a little background info on our previous lives:

  • Hannah gave birth to the most amazing little girl named Sophia Adeliene Corsetti on July 15, 2012. Her relationship with Sophia’s father didn’t work out and they are currently not in contact. He gets to have Sophia every other weekend from Thursday-Sunday. Hannah has had to move back home to live with her family who does everything they can to help Hannah out. Hannah has gone through more than anyone could possible imagine but she has rebuilt herself into the single most strongest person I’ve ever known. She just recently went back to school to further her education and she currently cuts hair in downtown Greensboro, NC at Prive` Salon.
  • As for myself, I graduated UNCG in the spring of 2013 with a BFA in Art-Design. I worked my tail off to get it done in 4 years and I landed the job that I wanted just a few weeks before graduation at Furnitureland South in High Point, NC where I photograph furniture. I focused my spare time on pursuing a music career as a performer and songwriter, enjoyed playing golf, and having a good time with guys whenever duty called. I was 22, living life, and having fun.

Hannah and I met over instagram. She was always “liking” my photo’s that I posted (though she says it was the other way around.. but no) and I thought she was a total babe but was probably way out of my league. I randomly sent her a message on Facebook regarding tickets to a Luke Bryan concert and we just sort of started the small talk from there. Texting here and there and “snapchatting.” Weeks were passing and I could tell that I was feeling a certain way about her just by getting to know her over the phone. I thought it was crazy that we hadn’t even met in person yet so after a few failed attempts of trying to hang out, we finally got to go to lunch on August 9th. I had to pick her up because she recently had hurt her back and she was all drugged up on pain meds. I still remember the first time she walked out of her front door.. looking smokingggg hot might I add… but she was walking slower than any granny I’ve ever seen. I remember I said to myself out loud “damn, does she always walk that slow?” haha.  Anyways, lunch was great and we shared a lot of laughs and stories. From that day forward we literally hung out every single day and fell in love. Like I mean, we truly are so in love with each other.

Now that the background part is out of the way, we can get back to the whole pregnancy part of this first blog {this is what it’s all about anyways}. So I believe that I left off at the abortion thoughts. Obviously, it was a no on that and we are going to go through with this and raise this new baby ourselves. Scary right? I mean half a year ago I was living the “bachelor” life on my own. Now today I am with the most amazing girl who already has a daughter, and we have another on the way. In the blink of an eye.. literally.. my whole world changed.

We ended up telling her father on Monday night (night before we were going to the doctor) simply because we couldn’t take it anymore. Her mom knew and so did her sister and it was just eating us alive not to say anything. We figured he would be like any father and rage out in anger of the situation. But when we talked to him, he just let us know we have a lot on our plates and it’s going to be hard but he’s glad that she’s having a baby with me and he knows that we can get through this. It ended in smiles, handshakes, and hugs {insert sigh of relief here}. Last night we knew it was time to tell my family. We had to do it over Facetime because they live in Indiana, which sucked. News this big is meant to be told face to face. But, we had to do it. We were both horrified but held each other close and knew that they had every right to be disappointed and mad and we had to expect that. But we told them and got it out of the way. They were calm (praise God) and obviously worried for us and scared. Which is completely understandable. After the phone call ended, we both felt a huge weight lifted off of our shoulders. The “hardest” part was out of the way. Bottom line is we’re thankful that we have families that will support us through no matter what we go through. Our families are our foundations and we can always lean on them. We both cannot thank God enough for that.

I’ll wrap this post up with some info and pictures from the doctor. We were both nervous going into the appointment yesterday because we didn’t know what to expect, but the best part about it was we were doing it together. As a team. And God was right there with us. We had the ultrasound done and there is a little baby in there! (Only one..whew) Well, it looks like a kidney bean.. but it totally has my nose, at least I like to think so. It was quite an eye opening experience and we’re both very excited about this whole thing. We want to be legally married before this baby comes for both of our sakes. We had already wanted to before we found out she was pregnant so this just kind of tied it all together and it was an obvious answer from God that this is what he wanted. So here we are, 23 and 24 years old, already are raising little Sophia together, and a new little one is on the way. Not the textbook way, I understand that. But it’s our way, and our story, and we are going to build the best life that we possibly can together and I can honestly say, that I’ve never been more excited for anything. Ever. Bring it on life.

I figured I would also include just a few pictures from previous times together. We have like a gazillion pictures but I’ll spare you and only post a few of my favorites.
