She told him she was pregnant. He asked why she didn’t tell him. He realized she didn’t tell him because the baby wasn’t his. She told him she didn’t know because it might be Eric’s. He thought she didn’t want to marry him because the baby might be Eric’s. He asked if she would want Eric back if the baby were his. Eric told Marlena that Nicole was doing a paternity test.
