The Hayashidas were a typical happy family of father, mother, two boys and two girls. Until it all changed suddenly with the untimely death of the father, Shinpei. While still mourning his passing, the children are hit by another bit of shocking news from their mother “Truth is… I'm pregnant.” The news of their mother's pregnancy at 51 sets into motion a new series of challenges for the four children, particularly for the eldest sister, Manami, who now becomes the family patriarch, forced to struggle with the pressures and responsibilities of “child rearing” and “family ties”, not to mention greater philosophical questions about the meaning of life. A moving, life-sized human drama.. (Source: TBS) Edit Translation

Cast & Credits
Overall, the drama was interesting and informative, especially regarding pregnancies that occur when the women is 40+. I did feel that the drama came off as a bit pro-choice at first, which makes sense in a country like Japan, with such a slow and low birth rate.
Some shoddy acting here and there made me slightly annoyed but it was all forgiven once the super adorable baby was born.
A good drama. Not the best but it addresses a socially relevant issue: older age mothers in society and the issues that come along with them.
