However, Nina finds motherhood boring with no awards though she is proud of her baby's accomplishments. She wants to go back to reporting or just an occasional escape from her little Ben sentence that she is serving. Her opportunity arises when her fashion editor asks to use Ben as a model for a photo shoot. As Ben's career explodes and he becomes a baby star, Nina realizes she should clue Jonathan in with what she has done, but there never seems to be the right time to do so.

BABYFACE is a fine look at motherhood starring an individual who loves and wants the best for her infant, but also misses the action and glamour of her journalistic work as she only remembers the good times at the job. Nina hides Ben's profession too long because there is a basic trust issue here plus the don't tell stretches too long. Yet fans will forgive her indiscretion because she represents many new mothers who want their cake and eat it too. Fiona Gibson furbishes a chick lit motherhood tale.
