My wife, my baby

Love tri­umphs all, even when Ridge finds out that his wife Caro­line is preg­nant with his son Thomas’s baby!

After Caro­line con­fesses, Ridge wants to keep the baby…as their own. Week­days SABC3 (*193) 18:00

Caro­line’s (Lin­sey God­frey) dis­cov­ery of her preg­nancy on Wed­nes­day 19 Oc­to­ber, im­me­di­ately fol­lowed by her hus­band Ridge’s (Thorsten Kaye) va­sec­tomy con­fes­sion, has left the new­ly­wed with a truth-time­bomb in her hands. But Caro­line isn’t go­ing to wait for it to ex­plode in her face. On Wed­nes­day 26 Oc­to­ber, at the risk of de­stroy­ing her mar­riage and Ridge’s fam­ily, she tells Ridge that she had drunk, drugged, black­out sex with a guy on Tues­day 20 Septem­ber, the night that Ridge broke up with her… and that “guy” was his son Thomas (Pier­son Fodé). While Ridge is still reeling from the first bomb­shell on Thurs­day 27 Oc­to­ber, Caro­line drops her se­cond bomb: she’s preg­nant! But just when Caro­line is ex­pect­ing the worst, Ridge does the un­ex­pected.


Ridge sees through Caro­line’s teary, guilt-stricken con­fes­sion on Thurs­day 27 Oc­to­ber to place the blame where it re­ally be­longs – squarely with Thomas. Floored by his un­der­stand­ing, Caro­line then con­fesses to her preg­nancy and Lin­sey ex­plains that “if Ridge had a huge re­ac­tion to her re­veal­ing that she’d slept with some­one else, I don’t think she would have told him that it was Thomas. But be­cause this man has so much love for her, she just can’t lie, and she feels she has to tell him”.


On Fri­day 28 Oc­to­ber, Ridge asks his wife whether Thomas knows about the preg­nancy and when Caro­line ad­mits that he doesn’t, Ridge sug­gests that they raise the baby as their own. “You see Ridge freak out and it is so in­ter­est­ing to watch Thorsten do things like that,” says Lin­sey. “You see the com­plete de­spair and then you see the de­struc­tion of Ridge’s heart in that mo­ment. Then you also see him look up at the woman that he loves. You see him step up as a man.”


Thomas is sent pack­ing off to Paris none the wiser. On Mon­day 31 Oc­to­ber, Ridge, who can barely look at his son, ban­ishes Thomas back to Paris. But on Mon­day 7 Novem­ber, Caro­line re­alises that keep­ing their baby’s pa­ter­nity se­cret won’t be so sim­ple after Ridge ad­mits that his ex-wife Brooke (Kather­ine Kelly Lang) knows all about his va­sec­tomy and fer­til­ity is­sues…
