I Became The Mother Of The Male Lead’s Children

She became the wife of a male lead inside the novel that she couldn’t finish.

She was also the supporting character who died out of jealousy of the relationship between the male lead and the heroine.

Daisy, who didn’t want to face such a dark future, came up with a condition instead of marrying the male lead, Carlyx.

“Please divorce me in two years.”


During these 2 years, I will revive my family, gain honor and wealth, and then get out!

After signing the contract with him, Daisy began to take care of the family.

However, thanks to Carlyx who never took care of the family, the servants were working half-assedly, so Daisy decided to fix it.

In the meantime, she met with Carlyx’s children…

“Henloo, my name is Ravi. Tino is two years old and I’m four years old.”

Oh my gosh, so cute! For Daisy, who bounced here and there to maintain the family for two years, those cute children were like a healing.

As she loved the children and got closer to them, Carlyx’s indifferent attitude seemed to change.

“Show me your cheek.”

Chu! Plump lips softly left a trace on her cheek. Carlyx kissed me on the cheek?!

Can I really get out of this house safely in two years?


Soon after, Carlyx, who had to go to the battlefield, came with a broken arm.

“I want to spend more time with you.”

I’m sure there was nobody in this empire who could hurt him, though?

Daisy was right. Carlyx broke his bones willingly.

I do quite like the MC with the exceptions that she inserted herself into the kids affections, since they had the agreement that they will divorce in 2 years, ML was completely right in not wanting them to meet and worse the kids come to care about the FL. What the hell MC? Kids are not dolls you get to pick and discard willy nilly, I was cringing so much when she was thinking about her plans to make them call/see her as mom.

The kids are adorable and like actual... more>> kids, ones that grew up in less that stellar situation, but still kids.

The ML meh he is just cookie cutter so far. But he cares and at least tries to be good to his kids but he is hampered by his Tragic Childhood TM and pariah status which he is hyper aware of so he distance himself and often observe them be happy from ajar doors. <<less

The one star I gave is for the kids and the translation team mystical merries or else I won’t even rate this novel with this idiotic ML and an dumb FL.

I came for the fluff and you know what I get is Mr. Karen (ML) who has extraordinary trust issues due to an abusive childhood and an bit*h like ex-wife.

... more>>

First, This is checks our FL background without her knowing. (But this fact is excused by the author and FL who leave this idiotic beheaviour as something which happened due to trust issues)

Second, this ML kinda literally was close to breaking our dumb FL wrist but still her wrist is damaged. And when the FL meets River (the cute boy in cover) this shitty idiot doesn’t even tell her that his son is in crutches. FL might’ve hurt River by her expression.

Third, this is where I went sike FL wants ML to live for the cute kids and she gives him an idea to change the order of knights because obviously some knights hate him and some are not even competitive because everyone are treated equally.

So, now the reason why this tr*shy ML treated everyone equally is because he himself was compared to his brother in his childhood. Now let me tell you the age of ML is 30 and he is a grown ass adult he himself allowed FL to be his equal and an companion.

This shithead ML released his mu*derous aura on FL for her just suggesting this idea and injures her. Let me tell you bit*h I hate ML’s who injure FL just because of this oh traumatic childhood.

I hope you die by those knights who you in the goddamn war because of equal treatment.


anyway I hate the FL too for selecting such and tr*shy ML and I forgot to tell you that according to original story he is someone who had an affair. <<less

Urgh, the FL is so irksome; I couldn't make it past the second chapter. I don't care how much she changes as the novel progresses, But from the little bit of persona she's shown... I don't really want to know what's behind that ignorant curtain.

I kept cringing every timeshe was mentioned. Let it be what she spoke or Even what she thought.

She claims she wants a marriage with love, but when given an opportunity with marriage, she ruins it with all her arrogance. LOL. She claims she knows the future,... more>> but never made it to the end of the novel. LOL. You see where I'm going at?

I don't want to stick around to what else this unpleasant FL will do and probably be super undeserving of whatever blessing is to come her way. She's quite detestable in my opinion. It's funny how she's able to comprehend that she can change her route, but not anything else? LOL. Seems like a loophole here huh author?

Aah~ I can't stand these kind of 'arrogant-know-it-all-but-only-f*cks-up-with-all-the-information-she-got' FL.

She aggravates me. Really dislike it. Forget this novel, if I have to see this FL constantly.

This FL made this novel seem like a pickle to me... not everybody likes to indulge themselves and eat something that boring, unpleasant and bitter. <<less

i first read this thinking it was going to be a cliché transmigration novel but it's actually really good! definitely a slow burn romance wise but the development between MC and the kids is adorable. despite this novel revolving around the kids, they don't show up until a bit later but the author does ease into it really well.

regarding the divorce MC wants later on...

... more>>

i know some people are angry that MC is planning to divorce ML even after bonding with the kids, which could hurt them even more, but if you read further, she says that she plans to stay in their life even after divorce which I find really endearing.


i like that MC and ml's relationship grow at a slow and realistic pace; same with the kids. one thing I hate about some novels is when MC literally comforts a person that's hurting once and they're immediately okay; this novel doesn't do that at all. they feel like real people that are healing from their wounds.

I'm really hoping to get more insight on ml's first marriage ! <<less

Ah! The children are so freaking cute!

The story is progressing smoothly so far and I have no complaints. The ML is okay for now, he can be a bit of a jerk but you can tell it’s because he’s been hurt before. So he can’t trust easily. The FL is fun and brave so she breaks through his expectations and even the expectations of the staff.

This cliche trope of ML having kids and MC being their step-mom is mostly overused.

But having to find this story among those boring overused cliche trope is like finding a diamond in the rough.

You might get turn off by MC's narration about the ML but, this ML is decent, cold towards others but still cares for his children (even though he is a bit awkward and don't know how to bond with them)

You might be annoyed or angry about how ML treats MC at first but there is a... more>> reason for that (after all the two of you getting married but before the two of you can get along, you get slapped by a divorce contract).

Yes I also get a distaste when MC wants to bond with the children and want them to call you their mom, but then if I put myself in MC's shoes I couldn't possibly treat them indifferently,

And they also have a bio mom who left them, MC's just filling a spot as their mother for a while (you know that she said that there will be a greater mom who will come after her that's why she isn't very worried because the spot that she left will soon be filled by the original MC based on the novel)

Overall this novel is certainly what I like and it's borderline closer to what I love (esp. MC she's a freaking badass).

It is a heartwarming and fluffy story. <<less

The good parts: the characters are likable, get to see the story from both perspectives, well translated (so it’s easy to read) and doesn’t fall into the cliche that the ML immediately falls heels for the FL - its more of a slow budding romance.

The cons: the pacing is a bit slow, from the cover expected more cute family scenes but the kids barely make an appearance (1 minor scene out of 11 chapters).

I remembered reading this novel a long time ago and was reminded again by how amazing it was so I want to share it with you guys!

I'm the type of person who judge the book based on it's beginning but I can assure you that this is very very wholesome story and the slow romance between the FL and ML just makes it much more better.

The ML willingly broke his own arm so that he can be with her just- *screaming at the pillow*

I really recommend this for those who... more>> like a slow romance and cute little kiddos who devoted to the MC <<less

This novel is a kind of slow romance novel with child caring plot. Its a light plotted novel, and I enjoyed reading it so far.

I love the FL character; she's smart and have a cheerful personality. She's wise and since she read the novel- she just knows and understand this tsundere ML the best even though he never show his true feelings. She's made just for him - a match in heaven. They complement each other's weakness. Love seeing them together. I think the latest chapters updated in the present... more>> now is still in early chapters, and I think I'm gonna wait for a while after more chapters are being updated till I continue to read this again, but I can't wait to see how their relationship will fold in the future :p <<less

the story is good so far. I like how the male lead shows subtle affections to the FL but not to the point that it could be considered love. I also like the different issues that the novel tackles about married life, divorce, and ultimately, childcare. It showed the clashing opinions of the leads and I think it would be great to their future relationship to have these thoughts.

hope the updates continues!
