My Best Friends Baby(w/ Allison Del Papa)
On this episode my dear friend Allison Del Papa (insta @adelpapa) opens up about her very unique journey to motherhood, having a baby with her long time best friend. Allison shares how the pair are not romantically inclined, but as best friends are both super excited for the opportunity to parent together. She describes it almost as a co-founding opportunity as the two are also co-founders of a business, but this time the business is a real life baby (I would say the ROI is slightly higher here). She shares how going the non-traditional route can have its challenges, but also gushes about all the fun that comes with the territory to committing to this type of modern family. Allison also shares juicy details on what its like for both her and her future baby daddy to date other people when they have committed to having a baby with each other, and how the 3rd party involved is not always on board (naturally). This story is so fascinating, and I love every bit of it. looking forward for you to listen in, and for those tuning in can you please subscribe today so you don't miss an episode; I would be so grateful!
