Coronation Street's Nicola Rubenstein is pregnant with Gary Windass" baby.
The former army boy - portrayed by Mikey North - ended up in bed with his arch-enemy Pat Phelan's (Connor McIntyre) daughter (Nicola Thorp) last month after he had a spat with his girlfriend Sarah Platt (Tina O'Brien), but it looks like his dirty little secret is going to come out as the social worker is carrying his child.
A source told Inside Soap magazine: "The only thing that could be worse is if Nicola was having Andy the hostage's baby!
"Gary and Phelan hate each other, and with very good reason. What Phelan did to Gary's mum Anna was sadistic and evil, then Gary tried to murder Phelan. For Nicola to be in a difficult situation because of Gary is going to make Pat's blood boil!"
However, the flame-haired hunk is set to meet his end in the next few months when he travels over to Ukraine again and is killed off in a dramatic explosive.
A source said recently: "Gary's family are devastated after they're told of his tragic death. Gary's mum Anna is told that he was killed driving a diplomat whose car was ambushed, blown up and there are "no survivors". Sarah is inconsolable when she's told of his passing and everyone is desperate for more information from the foreign office to find out exactly what's happened. The storyline reaches a climatic point towards the end of this year - with Sarah once again left heartbroken."
The 31-year-old actor joined the long-running soap in 2008 and has been dealt some of the show's biggest storylines over the years - including his alter ego suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) following his return from the armed forces.
