SAUL LOEB/AFP/GettyImages(NEW YORK) — The so-called “Mommy Porn” Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon has been rumored to have started a baby boom. And as inappropriate as the link between the bondage-themed series of novels and the joys of mommyhood may be, a new cottage industry is taking that one step further.

On sites like Etsy, crafty vendors are hawking baby clothes inspired by the sex-filled books, including one naming the series’ boundary-pushing character that reads, “My Mommy Pretends Christian Grey Is My Daddy.”

Another onesie is adorned with a picture of a pair of handcuffs, and the words, “I Pretend Christian Grey Is My Daddy,” while another reads, “Generation Grey Baby.”
