In short: an old lover gave me a little piglet.

Qin Zhuopu, a workaholic, has been single for many years. As he reaches middle age, his family is desperate for a child.

Until one day…

“Mr. Qin, your son is already in primary school!”

“???” I have only had one boyfriend!

Seven years after the breakup, the old lover returned to the wealthy family with a little fat pig in his arms: “Zaizai is a big eater, I can’t feed him. Zaizai’s primary school homework is too difficult, I can’t do it. I’ll give you guardianship from now on! Will you let me go to your construction site to move bricks? Son, say ‘Mommy’!”

Mr. Qin: (No, I couldn’t give birth to such a fat kid!)


Onlookers: I heard that Mr. Qin has adopted an illegitimate child born to his old lover by some woman?

Mr. Qin: Let me introduce to you, this is my own cub!

Hi hi, YunYun the translator is here, so a few words about this story. When I was thinking what to translate next, I felt I wanted to translate a mpreg story with a strong shou and not too much dog blood but also not without a conflict... I was looking for it for a while, and then - bam! This one was exactly what I was looking for and I loved it to death.

It is an mpreg story with a cute child and fantasy elements that go far beyond mpreg.... more>> Seven years ago the MC and the ML, who were in love, parted. Now the MC has a six year old child. And the ML doesn't have a child, and his family is desperate for him to continue the bloodline.

It seems the more stories I read, the more I enjoy the ones that play with tropes instead of straightforwardly implementing them. This one could have been pretty dog blood, with the MC being abandoned by a wealthy scum ML and the ML now trying to get him back because he finds out there is a child...

Nope. That's not what happens at all.

First of all, the ML is not scum. Their parting seven years ago is a result of the others' interference, but those who interfered are not villains either, they had their own reasons, not justifiable but kinda understandable. And there is an additional mystery there.

The MC, Lu Ying, is extremely likeable. He is strong, cheerful, optimistic, a little naive and never complains no matter how hard his life is. I basically fell in love with him from the first chapters when he worked three jobs to give his child a better future. He is also an awesome dad. He never went to school and he realises what limitations it puts on his life, so he does everything for his son to live a fulfilling life. As to why he didn't go to school - you will know in time.

You can figure out pretty early in the story that

Lu Ying is actually not human. As to who he is - I can't believe it took me so long to figure it out, haha. The answer is literally everywhere. Only the ML is dumber than me. But whether you're smarter than me or not, I don't think it'll affect your enjoyment of the story.


The ML is good. I particularly liked it about him that

he didn't rush to the MC after finding out that the MC had his child. In some mpreg stories it feels like the ML goes after the MC only for the sake of the child. Here, on the contrary, the ML reunites with the MC even not knowing the child is his, and he gets to love the kid and recognises him as his son even before he finds out he is his biological father.

Why were he and the MC parted for seven years and the MC had to bring up the child alone - you'll know it, too.

The kid, Zaizai, is precious. He is very sensible and it is a source of many funny moments. And yes, he eats a lot - like really a lot. But remember about fantasy elements, there is a reason for it, too. <<less

This is truly an enjoyable read. I usually dislike draggy super sweet romance only stories but this isn't anything like that at all! It has the perfect pace and length which made it not draggy yet enough room to develop the storyline. The translator's review is excellent! If you're expecting biological "mother" abandons cub to biological father story, think again (the summary is a wee bit misleading). The story is wholesome and sweet and just right!

The MC, Lu Ying was a handsome, silly and sweet person when he met the... more>> ML, Qin Zhoupu until external factors tore them apart leaving a pregnant Lu Ying to fend for himself. The story started out 7 years later, with how Lu Ying struggled with his numerous part time jobs (due to his lack of education qualifications) while fending off lecherous people just to feed and clothe his big appetite little baby (well 6 year old little baby). Through a twist of fate, he once again meets Qin Zhoupu and they slowly reconcile and patch up their broken hearts. Yikes I made it sound so boring (like the ekky super cringy and cliche (though it is somewhat cliche) romance) but it really isn't. I swearrr! It has a a pinch of angst, some fantasy element and a whole lot of cute father-son interaction!

The MC is your typical silly and sweet character who is super diligent and not afraid to work hard. His beauty brings trouble but he never let this or life get him down. The ML has depth in his character unlike the typical cold, distant, overbearing ML. He struggles with his relationship with his mother and holds his maternal and paternal grandparents dear. After his relationship with Lu Ying ended he led a monotonous, workaholic life. It was when they finally reconciled that he felt alive again. He never pushes the MC into doing anything nor demands anything, he just tries his best and slowly lets life take its course.

Though it's not the most exciting novel, I felt that the plot was super nicely written and plot holes were minimised. It's a definite recommend to those who enjoy childcare and slice of life novels. <<less

Cute and quirky story! I enjoyed it.

MC, Lu Ying, is a male who birthed a child, Zaizai. ML, Qin Zhuopu, is unaware that he fathered a child. MC and ML love each other but there is a big misunderstanding.

MC and ML separated because ML's mom confronted and scared MC. MC fled to his hometown and waited for ML to find him. ML went after MC but ML's memory was tampered with by Grandpa Lu. So they separated for many years cause well meaning family members on both sides were punks.

MC and his family can transform into creatures of the Chinese Zodiac. They have special physiques and powers. Therefore, Zaizai required expensive medicine to maintain his human form. MC works several jobs to provide for their needs. He is a wonderful daddy.

A relaxing atmosphere pervades this short story of two lovers divided by parental prejudice finding their way back to each other. Undying love and supernatural humor bind it all together.

The secret origin of our MC was amusing without feeling ridiculous. Their child is adorable without feeling overly unrealistic for his age. The world building and characterization was consistent and well thought out.

While reading I fantasized about how much fun this story would be as a live action drama. Strongly recommend when you want something chill with a touch of drama... more>> to entertain you. <<less

Fluff ✓ Nice and doting ML ✓ Sweet and persistent MC ✓ Cute little kiddos ✓ No angst ✓ Fantasy ✓ Cuteness overload ✓ heartwarming feels ✓ HE ✓ Yes pleaseeeee!!!! ♡٩ (^▿^) ۶♡ Overall, this is a very short lighthearted story with a little misunderstandings. Highly recommended for those who need a short break while/after reading tragedy/noir novel and those who loves to read fluffy stories without complicated plots. This is a very straightforward novel, not draggy, the pacing is just right.

That said, if you're looking for something deep and... more>> mind boggling this is NOT the story for you.

Happy reading and enjoy the ride! <<less

I rarely write reviews but this story made me do it!

I was looking for a long time for stories without too much angst and this was just perfect. There relationship is lovable adding to the fact that they have a kid made it so much sweeter and enjoyable. If you're looking for a serious story, I suggest look for another but might as well take a break and try this one.

It Absolutely Great, Fantastic Best Novel Ever!!!

Amazed with how the author keep us going with when the reunion happen... Then when the revelation happen...

How the friends/family supporting MC. And how ML's family accepting the situation.

It's not Angst! But it does have few Emotional moments. Misunderstanding that happened explained. Everything is Clear between MC and ML.

The story is mostly Fluff, Comedy, Cuteness, and Heartwarming feels. Lovely Novel!

I'm Absolutely LOVING IT!!! Without question, Forever, for the Eternity and Beyond!!!

Omg! Its such a nice fluffy story.

while reading it u will feel ur heart melting into puddle. It's so sweet but not greasy.

Damn it's my 7 th story that was translated by her. Its indeed a very good story, with enough fluff and slice of life, a bit of fantasy.

... more>> It's basically a lovers reunited and after that MC being pampered and with his cute little sons.

All the other siblings of MC were super cool and the grandpa lu.

Overall a very toothachingly sweet story. I would highly recommend it to everyone one.

Xiao yun yun surely knows how to pick a story, I would suggest u to go for the stories translated by her, they are really nice.

Thanku author and translators for the hard work. <<less

Ooh this was so cute!! Sugary sweet, and I loved both of the protags. I haven't been this attached to a cute child character since Rebirth of Movie Star.

Essentially they met and fell in love at first sight, despite great class stratification and disparate educations. Gong's mother didn't like that, and pressured shou to leave him. Shou was convinced gong would follow him, and waited to be pursued. However, he had already become pregnant, due to being non-human! Shou's grandfather was so angry about this that he enchanted gong's feelings... more>> away, and shou became a hardworking single father.

When gong happens to see him online by chance some years later, his feelings return, and he goes to pursue shou, trying to impress the whole family. Shou takes a while to warm back up after his perceived betrayal, and gong doesn't understand why they had to separate in the first place. Shou begrudgingly gives him a chance again after seeing how caring he is for their son (and also because he's been abstinent for years).

After twists and turns, the machinations of the elders come out, and the two lovers are fully reunited. Eventually they are able to live together once again, with their families fully blended and accepting. A naturally happy end.

Gong is a reticent workaholic, but shou sees someone offering him a deep well of care who will remove all his obstacles. Shou is lazy and spoiled and bad with money, but gong sees the cutest person in the entire world who can infect him. Eith a single look. They both want deeply to protect each other for the future, and can mitigate each other's weak points. And, they both improve upon those weak points over their time together (and apart).

It's an absolutely syrupy 1x1 HE light supernatural story, fast paced to read, with pretty clear language. Loving families, loving couple, cute kid, generally low stakes- it'sa relaxing roll of a read. The only reason not to read this novel is if you're in the mood for something very dramatic or spicy. I think a lot of readers will enjoy this one. <<less

This is a very beautiful story with a fair amount of depth. I expected a very fluffy lighthearted novel coming into this, but this is not really the case. While MC is your typical endearing and a bit naive MC, the circumstances around him and ML are not always very happy. The novel actually touches upon some quite serious topics including bigotry, classism, depression and projecting ur own desires on your own children.

... more>>

Both the ML and the MC get very wronged by the people closest to them, but they both make the best out of it. This is actually one of my favorite MCs of the more naive type, since MC is not the forgiving to a saintly degree type. He won't hold grudges over most smaller issues but is able to stand up for himself if truly wronged. A very mature while still endearing MC! Great job by the author!

NOT ENOUGH 😭😭😭 We need moooreeee~~~~

One of the best story with little bun! So unique as well. Full of fluff, cuteness overload n sweet funny moment. The story need to start from the beginning from the moment MC left the mountain n met our ML 😭 we need like 100 more chapters 😭 ... more>>

and another 100 for the story after they got together n have second bun!


Unlike other stories that introduce their little bun n then that cute bun got forgotten while the parent focus their romance, , this story is NOT! Our cute zaizai dominate the story very much, u c his cute dialogue all over. The story focus on him as well as the relationship between our MC n ml.

Thank u translator for the great translation 💖 n love the author ❤️ such amazing story n plot, so unique why so short 😭😭😭 I haven't had enough 😭😭😭 <<less

Heartwarming is exactly the right word when describing the novel. If you look for the early Christmas mood, it will be just right. Very likeable MC and ML, adorable kid, just the right amount of angst that tugs on your heartstrings without making you feel bitter and unhappy. I loved all the secrets slowly revealed up to the extras. Some things I could guess early but some things were quite a surprise. A good read if you want a strong, independent MC (who actually enjoys s*x) and the ML who... more>> is a truly good guy and respects the MC's choices. And imagine that, they both are good guys but the story is not boring. It has a bit of a fairy tale feeling in the later parts but I enjoyed it very much. <<less

I enjoyed the ride. The MC was such an endearing person. Very hardworking and lovable. He deserved all the ML's love and support.

I also liked how the story was lighthearted overall. Nothing too stressful and totally worth re-reading. The translation was superb and I can see the translators effort.

Thank you YunYun for the amazing translation!

A light read and absolutely very cute! There is some angst, but it was very mild. It did not bothered me at all, and I usually do not enjoy angsty novel.
Characters were so cute, especially the kid. And a big plus to the ML: it’s nice to see an ML that actually listen to the MC wishes.
If you looking for a light read, fluff with comedic undertone, you should really give this novel a try!

PS the MC and ML do not meet until some chapters in, but it doesn’t matter cuz the MC is quite entertaining!

Quite light-hearted and enjoyable to read

The misunderstanding and the separation of the MC and ML was because of 2 people -- the ML's mother and the MC's grandfather. Someone commented that it was unfair that the MC's grandfather was easily forgiven when the ML's mother wasn't. I do kinda agree however.

It seems reasonable because the grandfather is not human in the first place. He's like an immortal who has been alive for hundreds, maybe even thousands of years. MC and his family are mythical creatures! Now, I also don't understand why MC and his child had to suffer for seven years alone when he was so many awesome siblings, who definitely weren't poor. But maybe it has got to do with how they were raised or how MC chose to experience life when he went down the mountains. To us, those years of juggling multiple jobs would've been definitely difficult. But for MC, it's just part of going through life.

Again, the grandfather is not mortal. Seven years might not have been too long. For him, for the MC, for the MC's son. But yeah, I get the anger and unfairness because while it might not have been long for him, it was definitely long for the ML.

Very cute story with likeable characters. The father (MC) - son duo was really entertaining. Their dependence on each other and their interactions were heartwarming. Not a heavy plot, light fluffy reading except for some parts about their parts but it wasn’t enough to make me cry. Just right quantity.

This is really good, and I'd recommend to anyone. It's funny with a cute storyline but also doesn't shy away from showing the struggles they protagonist has endured.
