Tuesday, 9:35 a.m. To do list: 1.Try to smile when people mention my backstabbing, lying, ex-boyfriend, Daniel.2.Ply my ugly cat, Dexter, with some catnip--the good stuff--to keep him away from my last fur-free Hugo Boss suit.3.Decide whether or not having a baby with my best friend Gretchen is the craziest, stupidest, most insane, incredible thing I will ever do.At thirtysomething, Blaine Dunhill has a great career in fashion advertising, a fab NYC apartment, and some loyal friends that he's trying to share amicably with his ex, a famous soap star. Working in the big-time cosmetics world is all about glamour and artifice ("e;Like Barbies that can talk"e;), but what the self-professed nice guy from Wisconsin really wants is something and someone real to come home to. And then his best friend Gretchen makes him a really tempting offer: Since neither one of them has found the real thing yet, why don't they start a family together? Suddenly, as life becomes a whirl of ultrasounds, online baby registries, baby names (Civil Liberty, anyone?), and other adjustments, Blaine discovers something surprising: No one is more attractive than an expectant father. Now, in the wacky, gossipy world of fashion and celebrity, where coming out has never been more "e;in,"e; and the words "e;gay dad"e; are synonymous with "e;way hot,"e; Blaine is in for the wildest ride of his life...and a shock that will change everything...
