my fiancés angry

so my parents are on holiday and my little brother accidentally kicked a ball at my dads car but it hit very hard on my husbands car instead. He got really ****ed off nothing happened to his car but my brother is stupid and he does stupid stuff like this. My fiancé wants me to tell my parents about it and I can’t be bothered stressing them out if nothing really happened. He’s being really angry at me because I won’t tell them he goes what if it broke this that I said but it didn’t. I will tell my parents but obviously face to face as I’m already angry about my family I’ve got so much stress on my head.
*shrug* tell him that then, you'll tell them but you'll pick your moment and it's simply not urgent.

Tbh I can get why he's frustrated if your brother is misbehaving and coming v close to damaging stuff he presumably can't afford to replace. You don't always get a pass just because the stupid thing you did didn't end up hurting anyone

He’s not understanding and shouting at me I told him many times like I understand and that my brother is stupid and he’s wrong but still he wants me to like tell my parents when they’re on holiday

Your reply to your him could go something like:

"I get your point, honestly I do. But here's the thing, my parents really need this holiday at moment and life's full of all sorts of issues and I'm sure you can appreciate that I don't want to risk spoiling this precious time together by saying something over which they'll have no control and which could drag their mood down. There's a time and a place for this conversation and I need you to trust me that I will pick my moment once they're back home."

You've acknowledged his feelings.
You've explained that you agree that things will need to be said.
In return you've asked for his trust over the timing and provided solid reasoning.
