* ''Fanfic/BlackSky'': Daniela Vongola is quite disgruntled by her grandsons for failing to marry when they already are forty-and-more years old and giving her babies to spoil. She outright dotes on her granddauther Erica - for being a mother of two - and her grandson Xanxus - because she raised him and he's still young enough for a good wedding. [[spoiler: When she learns Xanxus discreetly married and fathered three children, she's ecstatic and declares he's her favourite.]]

* In ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'', Desdemona Fuscus is seen asking Kell which of them should be the first to bring the topic of grandchildren up to the recently married Fenton and Lindesfarne. Desdemona isn't as bad as Lindesfarne and Fenton's ''house'' (a sentient tree named Tree), who keeps pestering them. Lindesfarne is ''very'' ambivalent about the idea though [[spoiler: especially since, as a former human, her children are likely to become human themselves. On the one hand, society already doesn't handle her cousin, TokenHuman Francis Fennec, as well as they could. On the other hand, her having a human daughter might be the only way Francis can have a mate he can breed with. (And before anyone asks, they're cousins by adoption, so the NotBloodSiblings trope comes into play if that happens.)]] As of January 2017, she's pregnant.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Route 148}} '' this trope is used to hint at one of the protagonists' homosexuality [[spoiler: when Frank, on the same page he is introduced, jabs at Linton about probably never pruducing any great-grandkids]].

** Chirag is gay. His parents know he's gay, [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow but they don't know that he knows that]]. His brother and sister are also gay, and once they came out of the closet their parents immediately started bugging them about settling down and having kids. To avoid this, he still pretends to be in the closet when they visit him, begging his female friends to play TheBeard.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Fans}}'', when Rikk and his wife Aly formed a [[{{Polyamory}} polyamorous]] union with Rumy, Rikk's conservative mother did not take it well and nearly stopped speaking to her son. Later, at dinner with Rikk's parents, Rumy accidentally let it slip that she was preparing to act as a surrogate mother for Rikk and Aly (Aly wanted a baby but due to a disease that nearly killed her before she did not have viable ovaries, and Rumy was too active as a member of AEGIS to carry a baby to term, so Rumy conceived the child with Rikk, and then doctors used alien-tech to transplant the fetus into Aly's still-functioning womb). Rikk's mom then approached Rumy, hugged her fiercely and declared, "You're my new favorite daughter-in-law!" Her desire to be an active part of her grandchild's life won out over any objections to her son's unconventional lifestyle.

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' of Creator/AAPessimal, licenced Assassin Johanna Smith-Rhodes is pretty much an emancipated career woman with no fears or worries. Much. But one thing that irks her is the continual stream of letters from her mother back home in Howondaland which lament the ongoing absence of husband, and always end on the dire warning that it will get ''worse'' after you turn thirty. Her mother is completely clear on her wish to see grand-children before she gets too old and senile to appreciate them and is unrelenting in her prompts. By the time of ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1895209/A-A-Pessimal Hyperemesis Gravidarum]]'', Johanna is at least married to a man her mother approves of and adores. Now the emphasis is on ''children''. Johanna eventually obliges. The same story also deals with the universal concept of the JewishMother, or its Discworld analogue, seen through the eyes of a young [[YouHaveToHaveJews Cenotian]] student at the Assassins' Guild School. Her mother appreciates that Rivka ben-Divorah is at least training for a profession, but is insistent that Rivka attends Temple every Saturday, keeps a kosher diet, and marries a good Cenotian boy in a profession at the earliest opportunity, so as to get down to the ''really'' important business of having children.
