"Nine months." He grins. "See? You definitely have time to have a baby for me." "You're serious about that, aren't you?" she says unexpectedly. "You really, really want to become a father." "I do." "Why?" He ponders that. "I don't really know," he says at last. "It just seems like something's missing from my life. I'm ready for the next phase, just like you are." "Yeah," she says softly. "Only my next phase and your next phase mean the opposite thing. Yours is about putting down roots, and mine is about pulling them up." For the first time, he thinks he hears a hint of reservation in her voice when she talks about leaving. "You know...you don't have to go, Nina..." "I want to go, Joey," she cuts in firmly. "It's all I've ever wanted." And he's always believed that...until now. Falling in love isn't part of the deal. WHAT'S A GIRL TO DO? Nina Chickalini has a plan: Get out of Queens. But something keeps stopping her. Maybe it's the four siblings she raised almost single-handedly. Or the family pizzeria she's running so Pop can take it easy. Or maybe it's her best friend, Joe Materi, who's just made an incredible request: Have his baby! Nina doesn't need another reason to feel tied down, but how can she refuse the man who's always been there for her? Getting in the family way turns out to be easy, and suddenly she's seeing Joe in a whole new light-his muscular arms cradling a baby, his sexy voice crooning a lullaby... With the entire neighborhood meddling to get them to tie the knot-and Joe looking like he wants them to tie the knot-Nina might have to stop dreaming of grand adventures and settle for something even better: love.
