A/N: This takes place some time in January. The tower has been remodeled so that each couple has their own bathroom (Robin and Starfire, Raven and Aqualad, Cyborg and Bumble Bee, and Beast Boy and Terra) Robin and Starfire get married the fifteenth of December 2006. The room that Starfire and Nightwing share is Star's old room, only they redecorated it. Use your imagination. Enjoy!

"Star, are you alright in there?" Nightwing called as he stood outside the bathroom.
"Yes, I'm fine," Starfire called back from the inside.
"How long do we have to wait?" he asked.
"Only for a few more minutes," she replied.
Several minutes later:
Starfire walked out of the bathroom with a pregnancy stick in her hand. Her husband Nightwing sat on the bed anxiously. He looked up at her and saw a bright smile on her face. Nightwing smiled hopefully. She walked over to him and showed him the results. His eyes and smile widened.
"You're pregnant! Star, that's fantastic!" Nightwing exclaimed. He wrapped his arms around her and kissed her passionately. She giggled with excitement.
"Should we tell the others?" Starfire asked eagerly. Nightwing smiled and nodded.
The young couple eagerly headed for the main room where the other Titans were located. Beast Boy and Cyborg were playing video games while Terra was cheering them on, and Raven was reading a book. As the sliding doors opened, Starfire and Nightwing walked in with excited looks on their faces.
"Friends, we have glorious news!" Starfire announced. The video game was turned off, and the book was set aside as all eyes fell on the couple.
"Well, what is it?" asked Terra excitedly.
Starfire and Nightwing had proud grins on their faces. Nightwing wrapped his arm around his wife's waist. "I'm pregnant!" Starfire exclaimed.
The other Titans eagerly congratulated the young couple. Over the next few months, Starfire's stomach began to grow and Nightwing and Starfire prepared a room for the baby. One day, they went in to see the doctor for a check-up to make sure that the baby was healthy; the doctor made a discovery.
"Mr. and Mrs. Grayson, I have good news," the doctor said with a smile. "You're having twins!"
The future parents were both shocked and excited. "Could you tell us what gender they are?" asked Richard eagerly.
"One boy and one girl; congratulations," said the doctor.
"Oh, Richard, this is so exciting!" Kori exclaimed as she hugged her husband. She kissed him on the lips. "I love you."
He kissed her back. "I love you too, Kori," said Richard.
They went back to the tower and gathered everyone in the main room to share their great news.
"So what is it? Is everything okay?" Beast Boy asked.
"Better than okay," Richard grinned. Kori nodded excitingly signing it was alright for Richard to be the one to tell. "Well...," Richard began, "We're having twins! One boy and one girl!" he announced.
Grins spread onto everyone's faces as they gave congratulations once again.
The very next day they began construction on the baby's bed room. The room was too small for two babies, and needed to be made bigger. Cyborg and the other men knocked down the walls and extended the room then the girls all painted. By the end of the day the room looked just as cute as it had the first time, only big enough for two.
The very next day they began construction on the baby's bed room. The room was too small for two babies, and needed to be made bigger. Cyborg and the other men knocked down the walls and extended the room then the girls all painted. By the end of the day the room looked just as cute as it had the first time, only big enough for two. Two white basinets were against opposite walls, a plush white carpet under them, and the room painted with yellow striped walls. Two wooden toy chests were in the far corner, around then stuffed teddy bears and overly stuffed pillows. A tall oak dresser stood next to the walk in closet, a changing table and book shelf against the wall closest to the door. The window was rather large and looked out onto the crystal blue lake.
Their days were spent shopping for everything a baby would need. Clothes, food, bottles, pacifiers, car-seats, double stroller, baby lotion and body wash, cribs, high chairs, everything their babies could ever possibly need.
As the months passed, Starfire's stomach continued to grow as she and Nightwing continued to prepare for the babies' arrival. The other Titans helped out as much as possible. Finally, on September 23, 2007 at six o'clock in the morning, Starfire woke up to a tremendous pain. She turned to Richard and shook him awake.
"Richard, the babies, they're coming!"
Richard sprang to his feet and helped his wife to the car.
They arrived at the hospital in the matter of minutes and Kori was rushed to a room.
Richard held his wife's hand as she squeezed with all she had, which was pretty hard for someone with her strength.
Kori gave a hard push and out came the first baby. "This one's a girl!" The doctor announced.
Four minutes later the other baby came out, their baby boy.
Kori relaxed at the sound of her children's cries. The doctor handed her their little girl to hold, while Richard held their boy.
"They're so beautiful!" Kori exclaimed.
"Yeah they are," Richard agreed, "Look she has my eyes!"
"And he has mine," said Kori.
Their little boy had short black hair on the top of his head, and pale white skin. His big green eyes completed him, and gave him some resemblance of his mother. While their little girl on the other hand had thick red hair and tan skin, her sky blue eyes seemed to sparkle.
"What should we name them?" asked Kori.
"I think this one looks like a... Aaron Nickolas Grayson," Richard said proudly.
"I love the sound of that," said Kori. "I think this little sweetie should be... Sapphire Laura Grayson."
Richard and Kori smiled as they looked down at their two beautiful children.
A few days later Kori and the babies returned to the tower where they were greeted by the other Titans. That night as the babies lay asleep in their cribs, Nightwing and Starfire watched over them.
"They truly are beautiful," whispered Starfire.
"Yes they are, just like you," whispered Nightwing as he kissed her cheek. Starfire blushed.
The tired parents made their way to their room. They changed into their pajamas, got under the covers, and kissed each other goodnight.
"I love you," said Nightwing.
"I love you too," said Starfire.
