The Sims games are one of the best simulators in the gaming world. It provides players with many different features where they can fulfill their fantasies or just play the game and live in that world through their Sims characters. Sims can do almost anything as real people – eating, drinking, socializing, cleaning, hanging out with other Sims, and even starting a family. Some players wanted to go even further and play with pregnant teenagers in the Sims 4. In this article, we will discuss if teenagers can get pregnant in Sims 4, and if they can, how.
By default, the Sims 4 game does not allow Sims teenagers to get pregnant. The minimum pregnancy age in the Sims 4 game is a Young Adult Sims that is presumably around twenty years old. Even though EA did not allow teen pregnancies, modders of the Sims 4 community provided the players with the special mod that allows teen pregnancies.

Can a Teenage Sim Have a Baby in Sims 4?
Sims games were always one of the most popular life simulators in the gaming world. Yes, there were online games like Second Life, but they never got good as the Sims games, which from its beginnings provided players with the most immersive and real-life elements in the game ever. Real-life simulators can be wonky and limited. which Sims slowly but surely started to change.
Amongst hundreds of the features Sims games introduced in their games, one became quite important – pregnancy of the Sims. This feature was introduced in the second Sims game that was released in 2004, and since then appeared in every Sims game to date, but with various mechanics.
Pregnancy is a slippery slope in every game we saw to date, but because Sims was a real-life simulator, it did not bring any judgment or criticism on how the pregnancy is presented in the game. Why is this mod fascinating some Sims players? Probably because of the challenge – imagine being a teenager with no money trying to raise a child alone. Too realistic and a situation that hits some people close to home, but some players just love that kind of gameplay but that is maybe for some other article.
Anyway, to make Sims pregnant in the Sims 4 game, players Sim needs to be in a relationship with other Sims and have a hundred percent love and romantic feelings for each other. After spamming the “Woohoo” option where two Sims engage in sexual intercourse, after some time, a player gets an option called “Try for a baby”.
When one does that, after some time, your Sim will be pregnant. However, that only works if the Sim is at minimum young adult. Teenagers cannot have babies in the game.
Can You Get Pregnant As a Teenager In Sims 4?
As we already mentioned, pregnancy is a slippery slope in every game, and even though Sims games get a free pass because of their genre, sometimes even the simulator can become a target for criticism and controversies. EA Games decided to not put an option for teenagers to have babies or get pregnant in the game for a good reason.
Teenage pregnancies in the real life are hard and a sensitive topic in our society, and even though this is a realistic state of life and teenagers actually get pregnant all the time, EA Games never put that feature in the Sims games.
However, some fans wanted to change that – some wanted to create a realistic storyline in the Sims 4 games and immerse themselves by creating a story similar to the movie Juno, for example. Other players just wanted to recreate a life in Sims 4 that maybe they or someone close to them lived through.
We did make a few lists on our website about CCs and Mods that enhance the Sims gaming experience, so it is not surprising that there are mods for teenage pregnancies out there. You can go on YouTube, write in a search bar “teenage pregnancies” and dozens and dozens of videos will pop out which mostly consist of storylines you can see in Hallmark movies or reality shows like “Keeping up with Kardashians”.
All in all, by default, you can’t have pregnant teenagers in the Sims 4 game, but of course, there are actually teen pregnancies mods available.
