For me, until proven otherwise, I'm going with the assumption that it's A. a way to hold on to Gabi and B. a way to "save" the baby from the Big Bad Gays. Nick wants Gabi to be utterly dependent on him and his high-paying job that will afford her every luxury that she could ever dream of (as he arrogantly outlined in his ridiculous two-year plan). He's possessive that way.

I don't understand why Nick is obsess with Keeping Will away from his child. What a creep, I wouldn't wish him on anybody but Gabi.
I don't know either and, right now, it's the one major missing link in this story. I'm hoping that they fill in this gap because if they do, then this story definitely becomes the best written one in a long while. If they give Nick a compelling reason for this (not one I have to agree with, just one I can understand), then the layers and complexity can remain and continue to make this a compelling story.
Agreed. And unfortunately for the NickGeek fan in me, I think the best angle to play up is Nick's homophobia. It would make sense for somebody that thinks being gay is wrong would to also be fearful of the influence of a gay person on a child. I hate it for Nick, but it would make a lot of sense.
I'm sure that's going to be part of it, but I'm truly hoping there is more. Not just because I would like not have to completely hate Nick, but because the story is more interesting if it's about more than that. That Nick is so trying to make up for his past that he's completely overdoing his present by trying to force a family to happen. That he's scared to death of going off the deep end and Gabi and the baby give him an anchor he is afraid of losing. Whatever. Just something more than homophobia.
If they give us some other reason, I'll reevaluate my assessment of his motivations at that time, but until then, that's what I'm getting out of what we've seen thus far.
