Yeah, I didn't mean tending to the baby was the priority, as of course there is no physical baby there to tend to. I meant dealing with the fallout of the announcement, and the handling of the "baby" situation, to put it a little crudely, if that makes sense. Addressing what has just happened, focusing on the decisions he has made regarding the life he has created. It makes absolute sense that he would want to find Sonny, I wouldn't have expected him not to - it's the man he loves whom he has hurt, and Will realizes this and is scared. Makes sense. But in light of what has just been revealed, and the reality in which Will now finds himself, I don't think exposing this truth and allowing it to just exist there was the best handling of the situation. And perhaps why Lucas was insistent that Will address this first before looking for Sonny.
But shouldn't his conversation with Sonny fall under the "handling the baby situation" umbrella? If Wilson is as serious as they think they are, which as 21or 22 year olds, they probably aren't, this situation would have a larger impact on Sonny than the random family members who were assembled, unless Will is gong to be counting on them to help raise the baby, which is possible.
I guess partly, and again I am not confused or surprised that Will would want to speak with Sonny right away. And I am pretty positive they would have talked about the baby, what it meant for their relationship, what they might be able to do take care of him or her, etc. And handling of the baby situation was not an articulate way of describing what I meant. I don't know that I agree that the situation would have a larger impact on Sonny that some of the other family members involved. And for that reason I think Will did have first to answer to what happened in the church, the truth he had just revealed, what led to that thinking, how he thought this would work, etc. And to answer for his understanding of what and why this was best for the child, as that child will now be central to Will's life in a way he might not be able to recognize - not a boyfriend or girlfriend, but this child.

ETA - want to reiterate again in case that it got lost somewhere that I sympathize with Will, appreciated that he has grappled with this choice, and can understand his wanting to go look for Sonny before doing anything else. But I can also be disappointed by that - or, to be honest, more disappointed that he would brush off Lucas to talk to Sonny, and also leave Gabi alone since for better or worse they are both complicit in this decision. That is my main bone to pick. Everything Will has done is human and understandable, but I can still be disappointed in some ways. And I will defend Lucas to the death, so that is what I've done here =)
