Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) reacted with joy and hope when he discovered that his girlfriend Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) is pregnant with his baby in EastEnders – but he was brought crashing back down to earth with a bang when she confided that she wasn’t ready to have another child.
With Ben Mitchell’s (Max Bowden) hearing loss directly impacting Lexi, Lola knows she has to be there more than ever for her daughter as Ben will need more support when caring for her. This was hit home when Lexi was almost hit by a car when Ben didn’t hear her go running off.
However, Jay is desperate to be a dad and when Lola argued that she did want to start a family with him eventually, he wondered if she wasn’t as committed to their relationship as he is.
Clearly crushed, he tried to persuade Lola that they can make it work but, while she told him that she loved him and they would eventually have a baby, she wasn’t changing her mind.
Jay was evidently gutted but seemed to accept that it was her decision and he decided to stand by it – she kissed him and told him she loved him for understanding.
However, he secretly looked at an engagement ring when she was out of the room – is he about to propose in a bid to prove he is serious and hope that he can change her mind about the baby?
And, if so, will she respond favourably?
