Albert Square is still reeling after the death of blushing newly wed Bradley Branning, who fell off a building trying to run from police last Friday. With the gossip pointing at Bradley as the murderer of Archie Mitchell (when in fact it is Stacey who killed him!), one EastEnder is about to receive more shocking news – he’s going to be a daddy!
Stacey Branning had revealed to her new husband that her unborn baby’s daddy was Archie Mitchell after she was sexual assaulted by the soap baddie when suffering from Bipolar. However, the unlucky-in-love market stall worker found out in the dramatic live episode last week that it ISN’T Archie’s baby, after all. It seems he’d had previously had chemotherapy, leaving him unable to father a child.
So who is Stacey’s baby daddy? Step up Ryan Malloy! The twosome previously had a short lived fling before Stacey hooked back up with her ex-husband Bradley and it’s set to be revealed that he is the real dad to Stacey’s unborn baby.
However, this news won’t bode well with Ryan’s on/off beau, Albert Square’s bad girl Janine Butcher. “If Janine learns that Stacey is expecting Ryan’s child, there will be hell to pay. There’s no telling what sort of revenge she might plot,” a soap insider has said.
