In a unique, "au courant" twist, SHE is really a "HE" (given the name). Heck, no wonder he didn't introduce her to colleagues (who teased him "lightly" . . hmmm . . HR's gotta give new directives on THAT). Now, of course, that leaves the question of the baby, but maybe it's rented from someone with lots of kiddies. You're right, though, why are they shielding her? Does she come from "money"/ an influential family (a la Bin Laden)?
