How many of you are on it?
Oh hey there, September! Didn’t expect to see you so soon.
AN: An anon requested a oneshot of Derek and Shawn being cute with their newborn. I’m sorry it’s taken so long. I hope you like it.
I won’t let no body hurt you
Won’t let no one break your heart
And even though you want to
Please try to never grow up
"I hope when you grow up you’re just like your mom." Derek Hough looked affectionately at his newborn son that lay sleeping in his arms. "You’ll be strong and talented and loved by so many people…starting with me." Derek placed a light kiss on the baby’s soft head.
"It sounds as if he’s going to grow up to be more like his dad." Derek smiled as he looked up at his wife of nearly two years. Shawn had a knowing and playful smile on her face. Shawn walked to her little family and sat in the arm of the chair Derek had occupied. "He’s already taken after you in looks."
Derek let out a light chuckle. It was true. Their son already had bright blue Hough eyes and the beginnings of platinum blond hair. Maybe his nose was Shawn’s, but even so, Marianne herself said that it was like looking at Derek as a baby all over again. “Oh God, that means he’s going to look tall, lanky, and awkward.”
It was Shawn’s turn to laugh. “According to People magazine, I married one of their top sexiest men. So I don’t know who you could possibly think this little guy’s father is.”
Derek let out a sigh. “You’ve seen pictures. My childhood…there’s a lot that I went through and I just don’t want him to ever have to feel that.”
Shawn rubbed Derek’s arm comfortingly. She knew it was hard for him to talk about his childhood. They actually had a really long talk about it after she had to read about it in his book. “I know. But if you can give him half of the love you give me, he’s going to be just fine.”
Derek looked back at his son who had just woken up and stared at him with the same blue eyes. “You, little man, are going to be so loved. And one day, when you’re older, you’ll learn the bad things of this world. I just hope the love your mom and I give you is enough for you to see more of the good.”
Shawn kissed Derek on the head as she almost teared up. He was such a good father. “Maybe the world won’t be such a bad place if he grows up to be just like you.”
"Why should he grow up to be like me when his mom is such an inspiring person? I’d rather he grow up like you." He looked up at Shawn lovingly as she leaned down to kiss him. He then turned back to his wiggling son. "But what we think doesn’t matter, does it buddy? So what do you think? Emmy award winning choreographer or gold medal winning Olympic gymnast?" The baby smiled and wiggled some more which brought a huge smile to Derek’s face.
At the thought of their baby growing up to be a gymnast, Shawn groaned. “Oh God I hope he doesn’t become a gymnast. I can’t imagine putting him through what I went through to get to the Olympics.” She always respected Valerie and Nastia and their father/daughter/coach/student relationship. She knew she wouldn’t be able to handle it.
Derek looked at Shawn with a his trademark smirk. “Who’s afraid of his future now?”
Shawn just rolled her eyes at his teasing. “Well we have plenty of time to think of that later. Right now he’s barely a month old. I want to remember this time where he doesn’t know about the bad in the world and even if he did, we’d be the heroes who’d protect him.”
The couple looked at their baby who smiled back. A smile that almost said that he loved them and already thought of them as his heroes.
Derek spoke to the baby in almost a whisper. “We’ll love you even after you’ve grown up and gone. But for right now, just try to never grow up.”
Or die trying…
