13 kids that absolutely DID NOT want a sibling

Deciding to have another child is a big decision and a very exciting one.

But as you prepare to welcome baby number two, three, four or however many you have, there is one very important job. You have to break the news to your existing band of sproglets.

While many siblings-to-be are simply over-the-moon with the thought of having a new baby brother or sister, sometimes their reactions are slightly more… shall we say ‘mixed’?

And, even when the new baby is born, the older siblings can get a bit upset that you’ve tried to improve on the perfection you clearly hit on the first time.

Here are our favourite examples of pregnancy announcements and new arrivals that didn’t go exactly to plan when it came to their big brothers and sisters…

1. The youngest child who is NOT happy about becoming baby number four

At least they’ve got a few months to prepare!

2. The little boy who was just fine being an only child before the new baby came
