EastEnders delivered a baby bombshell this evening (5th March) as Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) revealed she is expecting.
For Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick), the news was certainly unexpected, but he seemed genuinely delighted to hear he would be a dad.
However, we couldn’t help but pick up on Lola’s mood. The normally fiery and excitable Albert Square resident was decidedly subdued and quiet about the whole thing.
Admitting she wasn’t sure if she wanted another baby, it seems Lola will face a difficult decision over the coming weeks.
Will she keep the baby?
Meanwhile, it seems there will be some miscommunication between Lola and Jay over the next few episodes, as Jay is pretty set on having the little one.
By next week, Jay is looking at engagement rings, not realising it’s the worst imaginable time to propose.
And as things go from bad to worse, Lexi spots him preparing to pop the question and Jay has to beg her not to say anything.
He even decides to rope her in on the engagement, a touch that Lola would surely love.
When the big day comes, Jay and Lexi hide as Lola returns home to a romantic lunch.
