Is my wife my babymama?

My wife and I have an extended disagreement going as to the propriety of the term "babymama" as it relates to a married mother. My position, as supported by such reputable sources as Eminem, is that the moniker is generic enough to encompass even my wife. She, on the other hand, holds that "babymama" only refers to a mother of your child who is not formally attached. Our friends tend to split rather evenly on this issue, with roughly 75% of the men supporting me and about 75% of the women on her side. What saith the hivemind?
