And I just don't understand why some want her to be mother so badly. Eh, different opinions I guess.
Like you say, different opinions. I have no clue why people wanted Sami to have her fourth child yet some did, because they thought it would strengthen EJami. I don't think it's irrational for some people to want Nicole to have a baby because of the extra layer of complexity it gives her. I completely agree with Alligato that Victor and EJ are allowed to be hardasses yet have soft spots and genuine love for their children, so why not Nicole? Victor doesn't love money and power any less than Nicole does, and I don't think loving a child and loving money and power are necessarily mutually exclusive. They can co-exist and I don't see why with Nicole it has to be either/or any more than it would with anyone else.

As for me, I don't really care one way or the other whether Nicole becomes a mother. I love EJ and Nicole together but I never was excited about an EJole baby as some plot device to hold them together. If Nicole had never gotten pregnant that would have been fine with me.
The thing is about people claiming Nicole is in it for the money, didn't they have past episodes where it was pretty well established she was in love with EJ for being in love with EJ, even before the pregnancy popped up? Someone unbiased please jog my memory. :D She kept putting him off sexually otherwise. (that's not a Nicole thing). She didn't try to trick him into the pregnancy because she didn't think she could get pregnant. She's after money only to blackmail Dr. Whatsis except she's afraid she's going to lose Prince Charming, the first guy since who-Eric or Brady-that loves her for her, or at least, appears to. She's been very insecure about Sami. If she didn't give a flying flip whether EJ loved her or not, that wouldn't be an issue.
I really think they're writing her (and Ari is portraying her) as being nuanced, with the snarky still there as she's finding for her white picket fence.
