Bought by Her Italian Boss(60)

By: Dani Collins

Soon, she knew, she’d be tied up with a newborn and not entertaining for a while, so she wanted a proper visit with this family she enjoyed so much while she had the time.

Sure enough, a few hours later, as she and Lauren were drying dishes, the first pain hit, a nice strong one that took her breath.

“Vito,” Lauren called as she took the plate from Gwyn’s hand. “We’re going to take Toni home with us. You and your wife have a date with a midwife.”

They made that date, with no time to spare. Second babies did come faster and Vito almost had to eat his smug words to Paolo as they’d left, about how some men got their wives to the hospital before their children delivered. His son arrived as Gwyn was being admitted, caught by a startled ER nurse who barely had time to pull the curtain.

“Do you mind?” Gwyn asked Vito when she was settled in the maternity ward, pronounced healthy along with their son, but staying for overnight observation. “That he’s a boy, I mean?”

“Why would I mind?” he asked, lifting a sharp gaze from studying the boy.

“You wanted a girl with Toni. I thought...” She had taken it to mean he believed girls were less likely to develop undesirable behaviors.

“Because I wanted to name her Antoinietta. I knew my mother would be touched to have her sister remembered and she is.”

“You’re not worried your son will be like—”

“Me?” he cut in, mouth twisting into a wry smirk. “I’m counting on it.”

She had to chuckle at that, and leaned forward to kiss him. “Me, too.”
