* In the ''Film/TheHobbit'' fic ''[[Fanfic/TheHeartTrilogy Heart of Ashes]]'', [[HotWitch Andraya]] tries to bargain with [[VillainProtagonist Smaug]] to have him impregnate her daughter Freyja while he's [[HumanityEnsues still in human form]]. She believes that the old magic of the Third Age's greatest fire drake combined with the magic stored in her [[MuggleBornOfMages otherwise normal daughter]] would [[DarwinistDesire make the offspring powerful enough to rival the wizards]], and Andraya would use the offspring to keep herself and Freyja free of men [[DoesNotLikeMen Andraya]] hates. The reason she's not planning to have Smaug impregnate her instead is because she sacrificed her fertility to awaken him. [[spoiler:Andraya never manages to make Smaug comply with her goal, and both she and Freyja die before any grandchildren can be gained.]]

** Somewhat justified given that Amazons were all innocently slain women brought back to life through magic, with some obviously being mothers in their former lives. Presumably, some still maintain the aspect of motherhood in their old life, but are denied it because of Amazon traditions (with Hippolyta being the exception, which leads to resentment.) One Amazon treated a dolly she made as her infant after she snapped.



* A hilariously pragmatical example can be found in chapter ten of Don Rosa's ''ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck'', where Beagle Boys conclude that four of them against Scrooge is not enough anymore, so Blackheart Beagle tells his sons that "You boys need to start raising families. We need more Beagle Boys", which prompts one of them to make an AsideGlance.

At the end of the film, she becomes a grandmother when Fiona gives birth to triplets.

She's also disappointed to meet Joyce and Walky's KidFromTheFuture Bobby, as she wants a grand''baby''.]]

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Frigga, though she's more laidback than most examples. Her lifespan means that she's perfectly happy to wait. Also, considering that she's already got a grandson to spoil (and is the mother of [[{{Troll}} Loki]]), it could very well be that she's just doing it to wind up Thor.

* In ''ComicStrip/SafeHavens'', Jeanine apparently started texting Shondra once a day every day after Shondra turned thirty reminding her that she still wants grandchildren. It doesn't get much better for Samantha, either, once she marries Dave (and it doesn't help that basically ''everyone else'' wants her to have children too).
