Van and Cheyenne, who is nearing her due date and having trouble moving around, are excited about their upcoming graduation day. They tell Brock, BJ and Reba they want to be in the delivery room alone because it's about time they take responsibility for things. Reba is hurt by the news, but takes it in stride.

Principal Hodge stops by and hands Cheyenne her diploma, assuming Cheyenne is too pregnant to attend the ceremony, but it's obvious that she just wants to avoid the embarrassment of a pregnant teen at graduation. Cheyenne stands up for herself and says she'll be at the ceremony and hands back the diploma.

On the morning of Cheyenne & Van's graduation day, Kyra notices Cheyenne is acting a little funny. She figures out that Cheyenne's in labor, but promises not to say anything because Cheyenne is intent on getting her diploma in person.

At the graduation ceremony (just as Reba figures out what's going on), Cheyenne is about to walk across the stage, but the contractions become too much for her, so Van carries her across and announces they're having a baby.

At the hospital, Cheyenne screams for her mother, so Reba gets to be in the delivery room. Reba holds her granddaughter Elizabeth for the first time and sings her a lullaby.
