In The Sims 3, it is possible to "Try for Baby" with a ghost and spawn a ghost baby.
Ghost babies conceived either from a ghost female or by a ghost male are NOT immortal. They will age just like every other Sim, and even die of old age. They cannot, however, die of starvation, drowning, fire, meteors, mummy's curse, or electrocution. When the ghost "dies" of old age, the game will actually say that the Sim has moved on to the Netherworld and the player no longer has control of the ghost. The ghost child can use their tombstone to move on to the Netherworld by choice. If the player chooses to resurrect them again, their age will be reset to the maximum number of days before they age up, which can be very useful. Ghost babies are like ghosts in every other way, such as appearing as dead on the family tree.
Ghost babies can also be conceived in Generations by having a man and woman drink the ghost potion and try for baby while they are still ghosts.
If the baby looks like a normal Sim, it will be completely normal in every way. The baby can, however, inherit the skin, hair, eye color, and other traits from the ghost parent. If they have the appearance of their ghost parent/parents, then they will not appear in the family's picture.
The ghost baby will have the same ghost color of the ghost parent and will look exactly like a normal ghost. If the ghost baby has two ghost parents, the baby will be the ghost type of one of the parents. There is no way to mix colors of two ghosts.
The player can still edit these ghost Sims in Create a Sim with the dresser and mirror, but in there the ghost will appear as a normal Sim with usually glowing white eyes. However, if Supernatural is installed, the ghost Sim will keep their ghostly appearance.
- If The Sims 3: Pets is installed, pets can have ghost puppies, kittens, or foals.
- A Sim who has the Coward trait will put down the ghost baby and faint after leaving the hospital.
