He still missed out, even though he knew it was his child, just like Will is.
I honestly don't see what EJ missed with Nicole's baby and Will has missed even less.I don't recalll EJ even going to see the baby after the baby was delivered and he went to Sami and offered to have his dead baby's DNA tested just to prove to her that Rafe was a liar.Will was present for the sonogram.He received a copy of the sonogram.I at a loss to recall what Gabi actually refused Will in connection with the baby.I know she chose a name for the baby without consulting Will but until the baby is born,the baby's name is not written in stone and I think if he has strong objections to the name,Gabi would likely reconsider.She is still shown as considering Will a good friend and wanting him to be part of his baby's life.Even Nick is not saying Will is not the biological father,he just doesn' want Will to have legal rights in connection with his daughter.
He didn't get a chance to take part in the pregnancy experience. I have no idea whether or not he went to see the child, (we weren't told what happened to the baby after his death either, but I think we can assume he's not still at the hospital) but he was shown being upset when Nicole and Rafe had him barred from the exam room when Nicole was getting a check up, so it's clear that he wanted to be there for those moments. As for Will - Gabi is not the one who's barring him from being part of the pregnancy, but Nick has already forced Will to sign over his rights and warned him to keep his distance, so he's in the same boat as EJ was, even though in this case, it's the future stepfather doing the shutting out, instead of the mother. Do you think Nick wouldn't threaten Will if Will tried to attend Gabi's appointments, or suggested a different name, or wanted to be there to see the birth? Gabi is basically a walking incubator in this story. Nick is running the show and taking liberties he has no right to and ultimately, Gabi is allowing it. And the situations are not exactly the same, but in both stories we have a father knowing that he's being shut out, unlike what Sami and Rafe did with Grace.
Perfectly said and I like the tie in to showcase EJ's motivations. When it comes to baby drama he has a long list of experience and his last go around with Nicole makes him especially sympathetic to Will.

EJ didn't even take the time to find out how Nicole and his son was doing after the daysater. He runs into Nicole makes some smart ass comment to her when his son almost died instead of sincerely asking about her and the baby's health.

and EJ would know what happened during Daysaster via his psychic abilities? He had just come out of jail when he ran into her, he commented on her blooming and looking healthy and off course Nicole makes it into something stupid and carries on her lies until Rafe showed up to add it it.

You know...the last few weeks any time there's been an issue in a thread, it's been the same two people. Please stop.

I'm LOL at all these posts about Caroline being at the stripclub... who the F cares. The woman was with her friend from AZ's, and I HIGHLY doubt that she's got AZ too. Caroline deserved some fun after looking after her grandchildren etc for years!! :D

Caroline is a Golden Girl :D
You highly doubt who has Alzheimer's?

What Caroline deserves and what's in character for Caroline are separate things.
Not to mention that we haven't even seen Caroline on screen for months or heard about her Alzheimers and all of a sudden she pops up at a strip club? That's the best these writers could do for her character? They sure missed the opportunity to showcase a story about a pertinent issue..hope they decide to pick it back up, but knowing Days...

I thought it was stupid for EJ to use Nicole's baby as a reason.The entire time she was pregnant he told her and everyone it was his baby even after Rafe said the baby belonged to him and the baby was dead before he was delivered.
He still missed out, even though he knew it was his child, just like Will is.
I honestly don't see what EJ missed with Nicole's baby and Will has missed even less.I don't recalll EJ even going to see the baby after the baby was delivered and he went to Sami and offered to have his dead baby's DNA tested just to prove to her that Rafe was a liar.Will was present for the sonogram.He received a copy of the sonogram.I at a loss to recall what Gabi actually refused Will in connection with the baby.I know she chose a name for the baby without consulting Will but until the baby is born,the baby's name is not written in stone and I think if he has strong objections to the name,Gabi would likely reconsider.She is still shown as considering Will a good friend and wanting him to be part of his baby's life.Even Nick is not saying Will is not the biological father,he just doesn' want Will to have legal rights in connection with his daughter.
Abby told Will about the sonogram (he had been at the coffee house to talk to Sonny after they broke up because of the baby secret revealed at the non-wedding) - Gabby never bothered to tell him about it and Nick lied and said she had a meeting at college about her classes. If Abby had not told Will about the sonogram he never would have been there to see the baby or feel her kick.

Gabby has yet to tell Will the name she chose for their baby but she has been telling other people. He should have been allowed to have a say in this.

I know I am late to the party, but I am completely overwhelmed with frustration over Days' inability to see a story when it's staring them in the face. How is it that days before Nadia is set to leave the canvas the Tan Man is actually allowed to remember that he loved Chloe?! FFS, the story all along should have been one of genuine feelings of confusion; this ridiculous allegiance to Jen looks even dumber after these scenes.

Caroline at the strip club? Funny!

The whole Anne moving while watching the strippers/Chad getting Anne drunk/Abigail dancing with the stripper thing? Even funnier.

This is the first full episode I've actually watched in over a week.
