Is it a good idea to have a baby to break up more easily?

I've been best friends with the man I love for 5 years. He loves me as well. We've long realized that romance is not a good direction. We've realized that staying friends with romantic feelings is stunting our ability to move on in our romantic lives. A recent solution has been to have a baby and go our separate ways. I would keep the baby and focus on being the sole parent and provider for it. I have older children and feel this would allow me to channel my love for my friend while letting go at the same time. My friend would go a few thousand miles away to live near his family. Has anyone tried this? Do you feel it is a good idea or not and why?
