  • I hate it. It makes me think that if the person using the term is currently in a relationship with the man in question, it won't be lasting very long. There are more respectful ways of making the point of who he is to your child known.

  • BabyDaddy??? It sounds like someone can't speak English well. Maybe they will stop that practice before it takes hold. And then again may not.

  • Yes!!! It's a huge pet peeve of mine...........I can't believe people actually talk like that, the first time I heard someone use it I thought they were joking....but it seems the phrase has taken hold...at least with the very youngest of parents......which might explain everything.....it's an uneducated phrase for sure.
