Also, I think this story has a possibility to undermine some cliches. Gabi told Will. Will was awesome about it. When has that ever happened on a soap? The drama comes from the fact that they are both in love with other people and cannot and will not (I assume) get together for the sake of the child. So, the writers will have to look to that and the reactions of their respective partners and families for conflict.

Of course, Sonny has no idea that Will slept with Gabi so recently, so he's going to be pretty gobsmacked by the news Will's going to be a daddy.
I do hope there will be a callback to Will (or rather Lucas's) concerns about Sonny's sexual history, when it's Will's that is about to bite everyone in the ass.
If the writers choose (or chose, given the current production timeline), to set it up, Sonny and several other characters, could be in store for a blindside of epic proportions. This baby could and should shock several Salemites, possibly on a magnitude matching or exceeding the grief sex bombshell last winter. I have never been of this story when it was first telegraphed months ago; however I am looking forward to seeing Lucas' head spin once he receives the news. That is going to be the highlight moment of this story now after Will's shocked expression upon learning the news. I am not looking forward to Sonny learning the truth, though. Soaps have a habit of delivering gut punches to its characters and it's his turn unfortunately, especially given how elated he has been this week.
