She goes to the doctor's and gets inseminated. The same day she meets the man she has always dreamed of but shortly after finds out the insemination got her pregnant with twins. She dates the man, Stan, for awhile and on one of their first romantic weekend together, tells him she is pregnant. Zoe has a problem with commitments to relationships and pushes Stan away. She finally realizes that she must get him back. She tells him this when her labor starts.
Best part of story, including ending: I really liked this story because it shows truth about relationships and pregnancy.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene was when Zoe (Jennifer Lopez) was with Stan at his cheese farm and she gets sick. This shows the truth behind pregnancy.

Opinion about the main character: I dislike that she isn't more open about her commitment issues. However, I really like that she is able to provide a life for herself through running her own business.
