Oh look, there’s the hunky sperm-donor now, swatting at her perfect bum with a towel while she giggles prettily and splashes through the surf, pretending to run away. Please. In real life, she’s in a spit-up stained bathrobe and bunny slippers, and the only splashing action he’s getting is coming from the washing machine that’s on the fritz again. Yes, you’ll giggle and frolic and act like lovers again, but don’t expect the mere act of reproducing to turn your life into a page out of a Hollywood-style Yummy Mummy spread.
