The DNA test results revealed David Metcalfe and not his son Jacob is the daddy.
Doctor Liam brought the results to David, and Leyla read them out.
As she announced that David is the father of the baby, Jacob appeared relieved.
Some viewers are happy that David has been confirmed as the dad…
I’m so glad David’s the dad! I really thought it was going to be Jacob! #Emmerdale

I knew David would be the Dad. Why am I so happy and nearly in tears here? #Emmerdale

But others aren’t convinced the baby is David’s and think Liam tampered with the results.
I have a feeling the DR switched the results like David asked #Emmerdale

David being the father is a relief, though I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s still a twist. However, this storyline should have been dead a long time ago #emmerdale

So glad Jacob isn’t the dad but how do we know for sure David is? #emmerdale

Last year David began dating school teacher Maya, however she soon began grooming David’s son, her pupil, Jacob Gallagher.
It began when he was 15 and, days after his 16th birthday, she began sleeping with the teenager.

Eventually she was caught out and sentenced to 12 months in prison, but was released after serving five.
As she was released from the prison, it was revealed to viewers she was pregnant.
On Christmas Day, David, Jacob, David’s dad, Eric, and Jacob’s mum, Leyla, were shocked to find a baby on their doorstep with a note from Maya.
Knowing Maya’s ex-husband Liam is a doctor, they asked him to look over the baby and enquired about getting a DNA test.
Luckily he was able to help and managed to get a DNA test sent off.
Is David really the father?
However David begged Liam to make sure the DNA test results showed that he was the father and not Jacob, fearing it would ruin his son’s life.
Do you think David is the father of the baby, or do you think the results have been changed?
