It’s the moment of truth on Days of Our Lives. At long last, Chloe tells Nicole that baby Holly isn’t her child, but actually Nicole and Daniel’s biological daughter.
Albeit the circumstances are less than ideal: The big reveal comes at the police station, where Nicole has been arrested for attacking the hitman who was about to kill Deimos.
Forced to ‘Fess Up
“Brady pushes Chloe into doing this,” explains Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe). “It’s, ‘If you don’t say something, I will.’ So she’s kind of forced to say something and to also maybe reconcile any kind of relationship or friendship that she and Nicole have had.

“I think we have good chemistry, and we really sort of ‘play ball’ well together. We bounce back and forth and our ideas seem to mesh really well. We enjoy when we’re given good material, stuff that’s really meaty or emotional. We tried to really run the scenes beforehand and share what was motivating each of us.”
Who Gets the Baby?
