of Gabi's baby will have a good job. Meanwhile, Adrienne stops by
Caffeinated to complain about the chandelier earrings Victor bought
her. She thanks Sonny for the scarf he got her. They begin discussing

bickers. The priest guesses there is something they are not telling
him. Will's text comes through, urging Gabi to do what's right for the
baby. Sami barges in again and Gabi explains that she's more than three
months pregnant. It's embarrassing to admit she had sex with Nick right

feel bad. He throws her out and tells the couple that he and the bishop
have already approved of their marriage.

hopes she can accept Kristen being in his life. She can't. Outside, she
runs into John as he walks into the pub for a drink. After he has a
few, he tells her that Kristen is using his son for revenge. They head
out to find him. Meanwhile, Kristen calls Brady over to her room. She
