Sarah has quite a dilemma on Days Of Our Lives. She’s pregnant with Eric’s baby and, as Brady heavy-handedly reminded her on Wednesday, “a baby is always a blessing.”
But Eric is also busy reuniting with Nicole (Arianne Zucker), the previously presumed dead love of his life, and playing daddy to her little rug-rat, Holly.
Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) first thought she’d get an abortion. Kristen (Stacey Haiduk) got excited about the news, figuring she could steal another embryo to pass off as her own. But then Dr. Rolf (Will Utay) told her she actually was with child already. So, bye, Felicia… er, Sarah, Ms. Crazy-Pants doesn’t need your spawn anymore.
So now Sarah has decided to keep her child. But she’s also smart enough to realize that Eric, granted, already not the sharpest knife in the drawer and presently too besotted with Nicole to think straight, will, nonetheless, eventually buy a clue. So what are the poor, mama-to-be’s options?
Sarah believes her only choice is to leave town, give birth in private, and… uh… lie to her own mother and other assorted relatives for some 18 years? The Hortons and Bradys are close. (Not to mention almost incestuously related.) If Maggie spills that she has a new grandbaby, they should be able to count backward and figure it out.

Or… Sarah could take the route traveled by many a Salem lady and… lie. Lie, lie, lie her pretty little head off. She’s been doing a lot of that of late anyway, so what’s a few more fibs to add?
Sarah can claim that Xander (Paul Telfer) is the father. Remember their drunken hook-up in between Rex (Kyle Lowder) and Eric stints? Maybe there was more than one? Can you prove there wasn’t?
You know Xander would jump at the chance to step up and play Daddy. Could the fake family even lead to the real thing? Vote in our poll, now! Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
