“Kayleigh and I were inseparable friends. After years of infertility, she was the first person I told about my pregnancy. ‘That’s great, babe!’ she squealed. She was such a support, dragging me off to go baby shopping on weekends. I was 4 months pregnant, but it got to the point where my suspicions were just too strong. I confronted her. She looked me straight in the eye and said, ‘No. But he’d be all mine if I wanted him.’ I was totally shocked.”
