EastEnders Lauren IS pregnant – but is Steven the dad?

Steven Beale hasn’t twigged his girlfriend is pregnant though, and is continuing to seduce her at every opportunity.

What Lauren doesn’t know, but we watching at home do, is that this is exactly what he wanted to happen as he’s been piercing holes in their condoms for weeks.

It’s all a bid to get her away from her hot boss Josh and back home with him. Steven doesn’t like Lauren trying to better herself and feels like they’re growing further apart.

Despite the fact she made it perfectly clear she didn’t want another child yet, Steven decided to be devious to make sure he got his way instead.

As far as we know Lauren and Josh have only shared a kiss, but what if all those late nights in the office have spilled into something more off-screen that we’ve not been party too?

What if Lauren has been having a full-blown affair with Josh and the baby is actually his?

Steven’s not going to be happy if that’s the case – and we don’t even want to think about how creepy his revenge might get…
