The Sims 4 Seasons
Having Father Winter's Baby - Woohoo with Santa
Seasons includes a reward for those who Try for Baby with Father Winter.
The Sims 4 Seasons features a Santa-like character known as Father Winter. When he visits for Winterfest, it's possible to seduce him and Try for Baby. It may take multiple years to succeed at Try for Baby if your Sim isn't very outgoing, but with preparation it's possible to do it in one night. There is a possibility of meeting Father Winter around town however this is the reliable way to make sure you're impregnated by the correct Sim. I've heard tell of a fake Father Winter - kind of dark if you consider the idea the impostor is out to capitalize on Sims trying to have a magical baby.
I've made a video guide for this including the traits I selected for my Sim, the way I approached this with only 3 days of prep time, and what happens after you've had the baby. View it below, go to the Try for Baby with Father Winter Watch Page or on My Sims 4 Guide Channel:
Preparing for Romance
Get Father Winter in the (right) mood by using Flirty paintings or sculptures from handiness. Other options are available, but I focused on the base game.
Romantic socials work best when Sims are flirty, and more-so when they have mid to high Charisma skill. You can get by with one or the other but inducing a flirty mood greatly enhances your success rates. I went with Painting. Painters are able to get flirty ,then use the 'Paint Flirty Painting' option when they click the easel while in this mood. Once done, you will get a painting that has an extra option when you click it 'enable emotional aura'. Add these to the room with your Christmas Tree until it causes any Sim to get a moodlet providing at least +1 Flirty.
In addition to flirty, happy is desirable as it boosts Flirty and with enough happy moodlets you will get to 'Very Flirty' for both your Sim and Father Christmas. Purchase a few items that say at least Environment 4 or 5 when you view them in buy mode's decorations category. Make sure that when in that room your Sim gets the boost.
The game states that a fireplace is required for Father Winter to visit.
Fireplace: Getting Father Winter to Visit
First of all, you Require a Fireplace to get Father Winter to come. I suppose it's necessary anyway, the game says so but I didn't test it without. Regardless, it'll set you back about $800.
This may also be required. Father Winter only visits households that are actively celebrating the holiday. Use Buy Mode > Decorations > Miscellaneous the day before Winterfest in order to buy a tree, present pile, and the decorations box that allows you to decorate your house. Make sure your house has the decorations applied via the box once you leave buy mode.
Sims must cook a grand meal, serve it, use festive socials and open presents to satisfy the holiday's requirements. It's really, really easy. Use the checklist at the top left of your screen to be certain that you are knocking them out. They also show tips for how to complete the requirements.
Try for Baby
Try for Baby options only come up after romance has been developed. Strategically build up to it if you want to do this with Father Winter
Father Winter Comes!
When Father Winter arrives for Winterfest, you can begin with a brighten day social to make him happy. Move the conversation to your flirty room and begin with easy flirty socials (exchange numbers, flirt, etc.) and as the romantic relationship bar begins to fill switch to stronger ones like first kiss and massage, embrace. These all build the mood up to Steamy/Amorous Exchange which once over 2/3 full will allow you to select Try for Baby. It is a 100% chance of pregnancy if you can get Father Winter to agree to it. If you fail, you should have him as a contact so that you can try after the holiday, so don't give up!

Father Winter's Baby Reward Trait
The child of Father Winter gets a special reward trait, as named above. This reward trait boosts satisfaction gain by 50% for Whims, but not Aspiration milestones. This is still very good especially if you use it strategically. Even more insane when combined with a couple of childhood aspiration reward traits and the Scouting special trait that occurs if you make it to rank 5. This is definitely the most a child has been boosted in The Sims 4, and it carries over into adulthood. Note that you should focus on the childhood aspirations over scouting - scouting can be completed as a teen, but you no longer have access to the childhood aspirations at that point.
Ask to Move In
You can also ask Father Winter to move into your household. I was really surprised about this one. He has $500,000 in the bank and comes with level 10 Handiness, Baking, and Parenting among other skills. He's the perfect stay-at-home parent!

If you have cancelled Winterfest for your actively played household then you should not be getting visits from Father Winter so I'm not sure why that seems to have happened in your game.
go to the mail box and summon the sim "Clement Frost" (aka santa) and make sure your sims pregnancy percentage is 100% or at least high enough and do the deed with santa and your sim will be pregnant
I just did it with my sim and it worked
Anyway my question is can father winter naturally die of old age? He's 93 in my game and still going strong.
If I divorce him will he return as the true father winter?
