In re: Two Lawyers and a Baby

A few years ago this happened:  I heard a rumor that Attorney A and Attorney Z were dating.  A month or so later I saw Attorney A and she gleefully shared that she was expecting a baby.  I congratulated her and then spent a few minutes making small talk about the wonders of motherhood.   Two days later I bumped into Attorney Z on the elevator.  I said, “Congratulations, Attorney A told me she was pregnant.”   He said, “She’s my girlfriend but that’s not my baby.”  Instead of apologizing for jumping to conclusions I said something like, “Okay, have a nice day” and then hurried off the elevator.  I really didn’t know what else to say or do.
