* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' [[AudioAdaptation second sound stage]], Fate worries that her adoptive children, Erio and Caro, by insisting that they are fine at the moment, are hiding any true problems that they may have (while they don't want to worry her and wish to become a bit more independent). By the end, when they come to an understanding, Fate reflects on Lindy's advice to let your adoptive children raise you, and thinks that was the case when she was being raised by her and Precia (before the latter went insane).

* Played quite realistically in ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'', after Asuka and Shinji find out [[ButWeUsedACondom her birth control has failed.]] Neither of them take it well at first, but once the shock wears off it makes their relationship even stronger, and they go on to be ''very'' GoodParents to little Aki.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/TheChildOfLove'': Shinji and Asuka were a pair of introvert, mentally damaged teenagers. They were almost incapable of opening up to each other and getting along well. When Shinji got Asuka pregnant their relationship got worse initially, but since neither of them wanted to screw their daughter in the way their parents screwed them, they forced themselves to get their act together and mature.

* An older form of this with Rory pretty much guiding the kitchen and relationship-clumsy Lorelai Gilmore through life in the first four seasons on ''GilmoreGirls'' before ExecutiveMeddling and Flanderization kicked in to turn Rory into every other TV teen.

* In MarvelComics' CrisisCrossover ''ComicBook/{{Inferno}}'', a homeless drifter finds a baby that has been orphaned by the demonic invasion. Despite himself, he begins shedding his drunken bum self-image in an effort to protect the child. By the end of the comic, he's all but unofficially adopted the kid.

* Subverted in ''TransformersAnimated'', where the Autobots don't think twice about taking Sari in. This is probably before they realize that eight-year-olds aren't user friendly.

* Xanatos in ''{{Gargoyles}}'' is a much more sympathetic character after the birth of his son in "The Gathering" (and the resulting confrontation with [[TheFairFolk Oberon]]) revealed how much of a PapaWolf he really was.

* ''Film/BigDaddy'' with Creator/AdamSandler, although that one had a bit of a twist; ''BedtimeStories'' might be a little closer to the heart of this trope.

* [[Literature/JessicaDarling Jessica Darling's]] sister Bethany starts out as a shallow, [[ItsAllAboutMe self-absorbed]], [[TheDitz moronic]] JerkAss. Then she has a baby, and soon develops into... well, still a shallow, [[ItsAllAboutMe self-absorbed]], [[TheDitz moronic]] JerkAss, frankly, but ''noticeably less of one,'' with frequent signs of at least ''trying'' to [[DumbassHasAPoint think about things]] and [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther care about other people]].
