As a complete life simulator, Sims 4 lets you expand your family by letting your Sim get pregnant and give birth. And just like in real life, you can't really choose the gender of your Sim's baby. So what do you do if you want a baby girl?

In this article, we will share tips to increase your chances of giving birth to a girl in The Sims 4. We will also share the latest Sims 4 pregnancy tips that will help you get a baby of the desired sex faster. In addition, we will explain how to get girl twins or triplets in the game, with and without cheats.



How to Get Your Sim to Have a Girl in The Sims 4

The odds of having a girl in The Sims 4 without influencing pregnancy are about the same as in real life: you'll get one or you won't. All kidding aside, certain actions during a Sim's pregnancy can increase their chances of giving birth to a girl. Follow the instructions below:

  1. Experience the "Try for Baby" interaction with a male Sim. He must be either a young adult, or an adult, or an elder. A regular "WooHoo" will not get you pregnant.
  2. If you don't see the "Try for baby" option, make sure your relationship is at least 40% romantic and formal: "Dating", "Engaged", or "Married".
  3. Once your Sim becomes pregnant, it's time to play with fate. To have a girl, make them eat strawberries and avoid carrots. You can find strawberries in the Willow Creek neighborhood or grow them in your garden with the Seasons expansion pack installed. However, you can only harvest strawberries in the spring.
  4. Has your Sim listened to pop music from any stereo? Avoid alternative music no matter how you like it.
  5. Wait for your baby Sims to be born. Keep in mind that this method does not give you a 100% guarantee.

Even if your Sim only eats strawberries and listens to pop music all the time, he might still have a baby boy. However, cheats can get you the desired baby girl much faster. Follow the steps below to activate cheats and instantly get a girl in Sims 4:



  1. Activate cheats by simultaneously pressing the "Ctrl", "Shift" and "Alt" keys. On PS4 or Xbox, press all four triggers at the same time.
  2. Enter “testingcheats true” in the cheat input box.
  3. Bring up the cheat input box using the same shortcut again and type “sims.get_sim_id_by_name [your Sim's name]”.
  4. Copy the Sim's ID and enter the “pregnancy.force_offspring_count [Sim's ID]” cheat in the cheat box.
  5. After the baby is born, display the gain of the cheat input box and type “cas.fulleditmode”.
  6. After using the cheat, press the "Shift" button and left click on the baby. You can then edit their gender, appearance, traits, and age.

By default, the chance of giving birth to a single baby in The Sims 4 is 89%, twins 10%, and triplets 1%. That's a long time waiting for fate to give your Sim twins. While there's no surefire way to ensure your Sim gives birth to twins, you can increase the odds by following the instructions below:

  1. Purchase the "Fertile" Reward Trait for 3 Satisfaction Points from the Satisfaction Rewards Shop. This is the only way to influence the odds of multiple births in the base game.
  2. If you own the City Living expansion pack, get the "On Ley-Line" trait.
  3. If you are skilled in herbalism and have reached level 10, prepare the "Elixir of Fertility". You'll need to get the Outdoor Retreat expansion pack first.
  4. Sims with Wellness skill level 9 can perform a "Fertility Massage" to receive the "Fertility Boost" moodlet. You should participate in the “Try for Baby” activity while it is active. This method requires the Spa Day expansion pack.

Alternatively, you can be guaranteed to have twins in The Sims 4 by using cheats:



  1. Activate cheats by simultaneously pressing the "Ctrl", "Shift" and "Alt" keys. On PS4 or Xbox, press all four triggers at the same time.
  2. Enter “testingcheats true” in the cheat input box.
  3. Bring up the cheat input box using the same shortcut again and type “sims.get_sim_id_by_name [your Sim's name]”.
  4. Copy the Sim ID and enter the “pregnancy.force_offsprig_count [Sim's ID] [number of babies]” cheat in the cheat box.
  5. After the babies are born, show the gain of the cheat input box and type “cas.fulleditmode”.
  6. After using the cheat, press the "Shift" button and left click on the first baby. You can then edit their gender, appearance, traits, and age. Repeat with the second baby.

Is it possible to guarantee daughter triplets?

You're not alone in your quest for "Triple Play" success. This reward, desirable by many players, is only issued to Sims who have delivered triplets. Unfortunately, there is no way to guarantee that your Sim will get triplets without using cheats. You should combine the following methods and hope for triplets rather than twins:

  1. Purchase the "Fertile" Reward Trait for 3 Satisfaction Points from the Satisfaction Rewards Shop. This is the only way to influence the odds of multiple births in the base game.
  2. If you own the City Living expansion pack, get the "On Ley-Line" trait.
  3. If you are skilled in herbalism and have reached level 10, prepare the "Elixir of Fertility". You'll need to get the Outdoor Retreat expansion pack first.
  4. Sims with Wellness skill level 9 can perform a "Fertility Massage" to receive the "Fertility Boost" moodlet. You should participate in the “Try for Baby” activity while it is active. This method requires the Spa Day expansion pack.

Note: Even with these methods combined, the chances of getting triplets only increase from 1% to about 10%. So, you may still have to try up to ten times to give birth to triplets. Stay patient.



However, you can ensure that your Sim gets triplets by using the following tricks:

  1. Activate cheats by simultaneously pressing the "Ctrl", "Shift" and "Alt" keys. On PS4 or Xbox, press all four triggers at the same time.
  2. Enter “testingcheats true” in the cheat input box.
  3. Bring up the cheat input box using the same shortcut again and type “sims.get_sim_id_by_name [your Sim's name]”.
  4. Copy the Sim ID and enter the “pregnancy.force_offsprig_count [Sim's ID] [number of babies]” cheat in the cheat box.
  5. After the babies are born, show the gain of the cheat input box and type “cas.fulleditmode”.
  6. After using the cheat, press the "Shift" button and left click on the first baby. You can then edit their gender, appearance, traits, and age. Repeat with other babies.

Additional FAQs

In this section, we will answer more questions regarding pregnancy in The Sims 4.

Why can't I get pregnant in The Sims 4?

There are several reasons why you can't get your Sim pregnant in Sims 4. First, households in the game have a cap of eight members. If you reach the limit, you will have to get rid of one of the limbs by moving it or waiting for it to die.

Second, a Sim must be able to "get pregnant" or "bring others pregnant". You can deactivate the function by choosing "None". So, make sure your Sim has it turned on before trying to have a baby.

Finally, the chances of impregnation are not equal to 100%. It may take a while for your Sim to have a baby, especially if they have the “Hate Children” trait which increases “Conception Tension”. Typically, you can get pregnant on the second try because the base chance is 80%.

By following the advice of our guide, your Sim will inevitably give birth to a girl sooner or later. Of course, you must remain determined to obtain triplets, especially of the desired sex. But Sims 4 is all about having fun, and the cheats are meant to help you with that.
