Julia's good-looking, loyal husband and Sydney's stay-at-home dad. A real hit among the moms in the carpool line, Joel is secure in his role as Mr. Mom. His round-the-clock, capable fathering allows Julia to maintain her focus on climbing the corporate ladder. Though he's 100% committed to the job of raising his daughter, he sometimes finds himself starved for adult interaction. He finds the companionship he needs in Racquel, an attractive supermom whose comfortable relationship with Joel and Sydney rubs Julia the wrong way.
