Big Baby News on Days of Our Lives

Nicole tells EJ she's pregnant Friday on "Days of Our Lives."

"Finally!" says Arianne Zuker, who plays the knocked-up Nicole. "It's not the way she would want it to happen, of course. She wants to say, 'Sit down: I have great news.' But John gets in her face and says, 'You have to tell him.' EJ walks in: 'Tell me what?' Nicole is like, 'Fine. You want to know? I'm pregnant!' Well, that was loving and sensitive."

EJ's response?

"Cricket ... cricket ... " says Zuker. "Nicole isn't sure if that's a positive or a negative. He's completely blindsided. Hey - it only takes once!"

In EJ and Nicole's case, their one time was in an elevator during a blackout.

"They were clearly not carrying condoms," Zuker says.

Once the secret is out, EJ backs off.

"I'm not sure if he believes her, because of her past," says Zuker. "This is Nicole's chance to do something right with her life. All this girl wants is a family after her father put her in, yes, ladies and gentlemen, porn. She just wants to be loved by a man and get that love back."

Nicole's dream is complicated by the fact that EJ already has one kid with Sami, with another one on the way.

"No one knows that but Sami and Lucas," says Zuker. "There is a teaser coming up where Nicole and Sami run into each other at the Brady Pub and have to sit next to each other because it's totally crowded. Someone orders a plate of clams, and they're both like, 'It's not ours.' They look at each each other like they are both going to be completely sick. It's funny."

Nicole won't think it's funny when she finds out her hated rival is pregnant with the same man's baby at the same time.

"Sami and Nicole haven't run into each other in awhile, but they will soon," says Zuker. "Salem is such a small town."

All my exits: Rebecca Budig has elected to leave the popular role of Greenlee on "All My Children" when her one-year contract expires in January. "No comment," responds an "AMC" rep.

Meanwhile, co-star Alicia Minshew (Kendall) will be taking time off this fall to marry Richie Herschenfeld, the owner of Prohibition on Manhattan's upper West Side. The two were introduced by Minshew's onscreen husband, Thorsten Kaye (Zach).

Don't touch that dial: Viki returns to "One Life to Live" Monday (ABC, 2 p.m.). How long will it take her to figure out that her daughter Jessica is holding her other daughter, Natalie, hostage in the basement?

Love the concept of Nicole finally being a mother! I would rather see her play the role of a single mother than being bouncing from one man to another. Dislike the concept of Sami being pregnant at the same time, with the same baby daddy.

I just had a thought about this whole Sami scenario.....I wonder if she'll go into this witness protection program, have the baby, and give it up for adoption or something. The anvils are falling about her fear with this baby or Stefano. She's just getting ready to tell EJ when she witnesses this murder, so this can wrap up the neat little package. Allison doesn't have to hide behind big purses or plants, they take care of her maternity leave, and we can forget about a fourth Sami baby. Then, when they get bored with stories, they can have a story about EJ or Stefano finding out about this baby and trying to locate him/her.

Sounds like a good plan to me!

There are spoilers out there that Chloe finds out that Sami is pregnant with EJ's baby ... If EJ doesn't find out that Sami is pregnant after she is shot or shot at then Chloe will spill...

I think a better storyline and giving Ali a break is to do a storyline like Y&R did have Sami get injured or shot and put her in a coma.... Make it an issue like should Sami be saved or should the baby be saved. Or can both survive. Ali wouldn't have to memorize any lines and just show up and be in a coma for awhile. EJ could have some very emotional scenes here ... We all have heard EJ say that his feelings for Sami are because she is the mother of his child. Could we see EJ fight hard to save Sami despite losing his own child thus showing us that he truly truly loves Sami and can't bare losing her? Or will he fight for the life of his unborn child even if that means Sami may die? EJ could also turn bad a little and he could go out on a revenge thing where he goes after the killer himself.

Yes, but there are already spoilers that say she gets shot, BUT she also goes into witness protection. So she will be off-canvas. Besides, you expect Dena Higley to do something that significant, socially relevant, and angst-worthy? This isn't One Life to Live, you know!
Besides, based on board reaction, there are a lot of fans out there who just don't want Sami to have another baby.

There are spoilers at there that Sami gets shot at and also spoilers that she gets shot ... she could be shot at and that's why she goes into witness protection. But she could get shot later and that is what causes the coma... we know the FBI agent arrives Oct 31 and you know that the case will go for at least a couple of months to give the character something to do and a reason to be in Salem. Dena said they are pretaping Sami scenes - well coma scenes are pretty easy to tape.

I guess we can wait and see. I could see a coma scene, but I can't see Dena doing justice with a "mother or baby" scenario. And frankly, I think a lot of folks would still like to see Sami backburnered for a while.

Yeah, I can't see both of these babies being born, but it seems like the scales are tipping in Sami's favor - for her to have 4 kids, 3 of them in under 1.5 years (RIDICULOUS!!!). Has that ever happened in a soap before? Higley stated in an interview Sami would "give birth" around Ali's actual due date to coincide her leaving.

Even if Sami gives it up for adoption or something, that means the kid is still out there...and the potential for that story will always be there. I don't know, it still means Sami has 4 kids.

The only solution I see to this story is having something happen to one of the babies. Either Nicole miscarries, someone is still born - I don't know..

What if Sami gives birth early and the baby dies prematurely. Then she goes away for some time to take care of herself...and of course, the baby returns in 10 years as a full grown adult who hates his mother!

It is a bit early for Sami to give birth in December...so maybe there are premature complications...maybe too much stress.

Oh hell, with the current writers, who knows!

No, no, no, not Swamp Baby Redux!!!! Course, if Reilly comes back..............

That baby won't return in 10 years. More like 2, LOL. They have to ramp everything up since they pretty much live every two years before being put on life support praying for a renewal.

Course, Sami would look the same.......speaking of which, you know that hairstyle they had for her in the nightmare sequence? She looks GOOD with that! I think Ali should get her hair cut.

That's the only solution I see her. I can't see Sami, or any soap opera character for that matter, having 3 babies. It's ridiculous. I don't know why they wrote her pregnancy in to begin with...
