The news that son Ricky Mitchell (Frankie Day) is the father and that Lily Slater, 12, is pregnant has been difficult for Jack Branning (Scott Maslen).
Jack makes every effort to dissuade Lily from considering becoming a teen mother after learning that she intends to keep the child in the hopes that she will change her mind and have an abortion.
Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), on the other hand, quickly learns about what Jack said and rushes over to the Branning residence to settle their differences once and for all.
She forbids the entire Branning family from having any contact with Lily and the child in order to protect her daughter, which totally devastated Ricky Jnr.
Ricky decides to move out after becoming enraged at Jack’s intrusion into his life and seeks out Sam Mitchell, his mother (Kim Medcalf), as a replacement.
Things must be extremely awful for Ricky considering that she was willing to leave him behind and relocate to Germany.
Jack is devastated, but Denise (Diane Parish) explains to him that he was acting inappropriately.
Will Ricky Jr. ever be able to forgive his father for obstructing his chance to meet his child?
