Oh Baby! Days' Abigail Fears She's Pregnant

By February 28, 2014

Follow me on:

kate mansiIt's the story turn Days of Our Lives fans saw coming a mile away, and, next week, it becomes a reality. Abigail, who's been having a hot and heavy affair with EJ, fears she's pregnant.

But here's the twist: it's EJ's fiance Sami, who suggests the possibility.

According to the new issue of Soap Opera Digest, Sami is with Abigail, when she takes ill after smelling some food. Sami, of course, has already been there, done that when it comes to "morning sickness." (She has four kids.) So she asks Abigail, "Could you be pregnant?"

Cue the horror in Abigail.

But is EJ's mistress really carrying his child? Or is this just a red herring?

All will be revealed... eventually.

(1) Sara says:

Although this has been overdone, I would like to see this happen. Sami deserves to do what she has done so often–hurt!!

February 28, 2014 at 6:28 pm
(2) Joanne says:

Cue the horror in Abby? Cue the horror in me!!!!!! PLEASE, don’t make her pregnant. LOVE her with EJ, but don’t want to see another pregnancy.

February 28, 2014 at 6:53 pm
(3) Susan larsen says:

Please say it ain’t so.

February 28, 2014 at 7:16 pm
(4) Elaine says:

Please, Please, PLEEEEEEEEASE don’t let this be true! Come on writers try something different. Abigail is too immature to have that happen to her. Finally Jennifer and JJ have gotten their act together and she is about to wreck everybody’s lives in Salem. I know Sami is leaving, but there has to be some good time with EJ until then. There is enough drama going as it is (John+Marlena, Rafe + Jordan, Brady + Kristen + Theresa, Gabby + Nick, Hope + Aiden, Kate + everybody).

February 28, 2014 at 7:48 pm
(5) Shannon says:

I’d love to see it happen. Sami is leaving the show. This would be perfect for EJ to have another child to have to raise. It would teach him a lesson.

February 28, 2014 at 8:01 pm
(6) Jane says:

No she’s not pregnant! Abigail has a fiendish plot in motion. She did a 180 turn today a little too easily when she seemingly “ended” the affair with EJ. Me thinks she is going to have a pretend pregnancy in order to get EJ to marry her before the planned wedding to Sammy in May. who better to drop a prego symptom to than to Sammy, maybe hoping she blurts it to EJ?

February 28, 2014 at 8:04 pm
(7) Erin says:

I’m guessing no, because if she were, I’d guess it’d be revealed in May as Sami is walking down the aisle (or would that be too predictable??)

February 28, 2014 at 8:15 pm
(8) Darlene says:

We know this story was coming. Find something new.

February 28, 2014 at 8:44 pm
(9) Takeitish says:

I fear having to watch he BE pregnant!

March 1, 2014 at 12:47 am
(10) Francis says:

Half the so called Sami fans don’t even spell her name right…

March 1, 2014 at 3:01 am
(11) SoPasCat says:

I do hope Abigail is pregnant. A storyline like this will have twists and turns. The show’s ratings have never been higher, and one of the storylines that helped boost the ratings is EJ & Abby affair. If Abigail is pregnant, it’ll also be the first Horton – DiMera baby.

March 1, 2014 at 8:01 am
(12) Maggie says:

Disgusting story. Disgusting actress. End it now.

March 1, 2014 at 9:01 am
(13) Bluebird says:

I like it. It would be fun to watch Sami freak out over this.

March 1, 2014 at 10:26 am
(14) Elizabeth says:

First, Sammy’s week doesn’t start off with her thinking Abby possibly being pregnant. Before that happens she has an encounter with Nick. Nick is proceeding his blackmailing schemes on Sammy, plus her and Hope run into each other and get into a disagreement, I believe they will be about those earrings she bought for Ciara.
Also, before Sammy runs into Abigail, her son Johnny tells his mother that he thinks Abby is in love with Rafe, how Johnny came to that conclusion I will never know but I’m sure it will be revealed on the soap. So, Sammy will think she did it with Rafe more than with EJ. EJ won’t find out till possibly the following week because it says that “He is floored”. One thing it didn’t specify where or how he hears the news, I bet Sammy will probably be the one that tells EJ.

(15) patsy says:

NIMPHO Abbie pregnant just one more thing to upset the EJami fans .All I,ve got to saiy is IF you are going to watch days DONT get infested in a couple Because COREDAand the writers will throw you under the bus in a heartbeat .Don’t matter how long you have been watching.I say all EJami fans should quit watching Iknow its JUST a soap but fans are what keeps the soap showing

March 1, 2014 at 2:57 pm
(16) sandee says:

Are the writers TRYING to run James Scott off? OMG, this storyline is so beneath the acting skills of someone as classy as E.J…..sure he’s no angel, but to try to shove this ‘couple’ down our throats is beyond ridiculous! They are not now, nor will E.J. and Abigal be a “super couple”…I don’t even know why they are trying to keep Abigal in a front burner story; she’s not that interesting…..too much like her mom. If they want to pair E.J. with someone besides Sami, good grief, give him someone that he’s on the same maturity level with. Or, let him steal Jordan from Rafe, or put him with Hope, or give him to Eve Donovan when she arrives….he doesn’t need to be forced to jump in the kiddie pool; E.J. AND James Scott are way above that!

March 1, 2014 at 6:17 pm
(17) fanny says:

I adore James Scott(EJ) in any scene he’s in and I do like the ones with Kate Mansi(Abby), because it shows a different side of EJ. And I’ll bet James Scott enjoys them as well.
Do I want Abby pregnant? NO! As someone mentioned, this kind of storyline has been overdone on soaps. I hope it will be a false alarm.

March 1, 2014 at 6:48 pm
(18) shannon says:

such a boring story. Wish Abigal would just leave the show. She is so boring

March 1, 2014 at 10:16 pm
(19) Barbara Luffman says:

I feel so sorry for James Scott having to do scenes with Kate Mansi. He deserves better storylines than those with her. He is so very talented and she is a nothing actress who neither looks or sounds mature enough to be in the same room with him, let alone in bed with him. James Scott is the best and sexiest actor on that show and pairing him with that scrawny twit is degrading….not to mention out of character for all his storylines in the past. Still hoping this is someone’s delusion or there is a fake EJ….or something that will explain this irrationality!

March 1, 2014 at 10:27 pm
(20) mp says:

Elaine about your comment. Jennifer and JJ is going to get rude awakening. Theresa will get back at them her sister is coming to Salem. I am talking about Eve Donovan do you think she knows what they are treating her sister Theresa. JJ should watch his back what he did to Theresa. Her sister Eve does she know what he did to her sister by blackmaiing her and fake embezzlement and put it on camera.

March 2, 2014 at 11:16 am
(21) fanny says:

I get it that some of you don’t like the EJ & Abby storyline, but don’t blame the actors for that, blame the writers. James Scott & Kate Mansi are only doing their jobs and a fine one at that. And because of them and this particular storyline, DAYS’s ratings have been great.
Kudos to BOTH of them!

March 2, 2014 at 1:49 pm
(22) WG says:

Well said Fanny. For all the fans who think Abi is too young and not mature, well in real life this is what would happen. Good looking well off older guy always has affairs with the young innocent girls and its definitely not for love its for the thrill of someone new. Love this story line. I can’t wait until Sami finds out

March 2, 2014 at 4:47 pm
(23) nancy lemons says:

Please let E J and Sami stay to gether he gave up so much let them . married and abby is not pregant thanks

March 2, 2014 at 6:52 pm
(24) mark says:

I agree with number 18 above.

March 2, 2014 at 9:14 pm
(25) Terry says:

Not a fan of this story line.

(26) Voice of Reason says:

SMH….waaaaay too predictible…like we did not see this coming.

March 3, 2014 at 12:50 pm
(27) Voice of Reason says:

Sami, Abby, Gabi….please spell their names right, it’s driving me crazy

(29) Lauren Southard says:

abigail is not innocent, she is a man chasing homewrecker.

March 3, 2014 at 7:10 pm
(30) Darlene says:

Hey, lets not forget that Abby’s grandmother is a crazy and in some mental instutation that no one ever visits. Who knows Abby could have those same genes! Go Abby go!

March 3, 2014 at 7:13 pm
(31) Darlene says:

Hey, lets not forget, Abby’s grandmother is a crazy locked up some place that noone every goes to see or talk about. Poor woman, just maybe Abby could have her gene’s and pick up where the grandma left off. Go Abby go!

March 3, 2014 at 9:50 pm
(32) fanny says:

Dr. Laura Horton, Abigail’s grandmother, has been out of the sanitarium a long time ago. She came to Salem in 2010 for Alice’s funeral and last year, Jennifer went to visit her mom at her home, wherever she lives now.

March 3, 2014 at 10:12 pm
(33) Marsha says:

If you are going to run with this boring plot of Abigail being pregnant then go all the way. You introduced and wove in the homosexual issue; now bring up another social issue. Abortion! That would get more attention than the well worn pregnancy plot.

March 3, 2014 at 11:01 pm
(34) Anne says:

(16) sandee speaks for me on this issue. Yes….it must be that the writers and producers are trying to drive this poor actor crazy with stupid stuff like this.

The plot line is frustrating and boring to some, and yet causes others to practically salivate, so there is a split. Then the spike in the ratings is mentioned. I wonder how much of that has to do with the lingering, occasional mentioning of Kristin, and the Eric/Nicole/Dan development. That was a lot more exciting to me. Brady….stumbling around, bumping into Teresa-THAT is more exciting to me. My money is on the ERIC-NICOLE line for the ratings. Abigail & EJ? It’s not really exciting because it is not really registering as anything real, that I need to pay attention to. Heck, watching Marlena’s questionable fashion choices is more exciting.

March 4, 2014 at 1:03 am
(35) stephaniemerazzi says:

Hi from down under to person that wrote about Abby grandmother please do not speak about people being crazy as mental illness is chemical inbalance I work with people mental health issues I have never come across anyone that was crazy they are lovely people just find life harder to cope with .A lot writers like Platt had mental health issues

March 4, 2014 at 8:23 am
(36) Arlene says:


and I’ve been watching for over 40, years—since the very first

March 4, 2014 at 9:29 am
(37) DP says:

Now that Sami’s leaving bring back Chloe (Nadia). That is the best possible future mate for EJ. It’s a perfect, beautiful, handsome pairing. The only one I would like to see played out on my screen. EJ sleeping with a child is just disgusting and needs to end before it even started. No idea how anyone can find that sexy or appealing it’s gross!

March 4, 2014 at 11:12 am
(38) Dora says:

Good Gracious! Don’t dump this on us! Abigail is such a whiney-faced idiot. So immature and completely boring. I hope this crap will end soon; I’m getting so bored with her silliness!

March 4, 2014 at 11:12 am
(39) Debra says:

Come on now — are we all really surprised about the possibility of Abigail being pregnant? It’s so predictable. As for “it will be revealed” — sure it will — probably when EJ and Sami are about to walk down the isle — also so predictable! As for Abigail not being “mature” enough to be with EJ, since when does a man put “maturity” at the top of his list when he’s all hot and bothered for someone? His brain is not the body part that’s guiding him at the time. I’m not that fond of their pairing, but I will say again that I love, love, love me some James Scott and sometimes I don’t like him with Sami either but am always glad to watch him period!

March 4, 2014 at 11:14 am
(40) Adrienne says:

I love love love the EJ and Abigail pairing. Whoever has been watching Days for a very long time knows that Abigail is actually older than EJ.
So many claim to be such long time fans yet only a handful of you know that. I think they are both good actors although James Scott is more seasoned and I hope to God she is pregnant with EJ’s kid and keeps it.

The show needed some spice and I am glad it finally has some.

March 4, 2014 at 11:13 pm
(41) days+30 says:

The foreshadowing has been telling us for weeks that Sami and EJ are not going to make it. Since we know AS is leaving the role, why not explore the EJ/Abby pairing? Until these last few weeks, Sami has been nearly intolerable with EJ, then suddenly she’s over everything and sets a date. EJ clearly feels something for Abby. This will drive Jennifer insane! I never thought I’d be happy to see this but I like EJ and Abby. I do hope that Sami is recast at some point but that she moves in another direction. Maybe back to Rafe; they were great together. Family is everything to the Dimera’s and this would be the first time EJ got to be involved with one of his children from the very beginning. It would be fun to watch.

March 4, 2014 at 11:23 pm
(42) Rose says:

Yes, bring on the anticipated pregnancy! Then have Chad return to Salem in the midst of the brouhaha and turn against EJ. It is high time that members of the Di Mera family turn on each other, leaving Stephano in the middle and in despair. Let him feel the hurt he and Kristen caused Brady, Eric, Marlena and others.

March 5, 2014 at 4:34 pm
(43) Teresa says:

I have watched Days for over 40 years and one of my all time favorite couples has been EJ and Sami. The disrespect TPTB have shown the EJami fans with this storyline is reprehensible.Shame on you Days for caring so little about a large and loyal fanbase. To have the affair between EJ and Abby happen at all was ludicrous, to have her be pregnant as a result is absurd.

March 5, 2014 at 8:40 pm
(44) Elaine says:

I agree with you 100% Teresa!!!!!!!!!!!

March 6, 2014 at 10:44 am
(45) patsy says:

days+30 Yes days needs to spice things up .but not with cheating animal sex and another . EJ baby THERES nothing exciteing about see someone being cheated on and a unwanted baby from IT.TWO familys get hurt and broken up .they have ruined EJ to where hes not special any more I would love to have a good lovestory this Abby and EJ will not be a good love story they went about iti all wrong if they wanted to pear them off I could except it if they had maybe had Abby there to comfort EJ when Sami leaves .But this affair is sickening to watc AT LEST THREE MAJOR STARSh because we know every one is out of charater AND ITS RUINED Teresa I agree 100%

March 6, 2014 at 2:29 pm

March 6, 2014 at 7:58 pm
(47) Elaine says:

As a mother of grown children I think every mother wants the best for their children. They may not agree with their choice of a mate, but they are grown and have to learn from their mistakes and pray for the best. Adriene, Marlena, Julie, Maggie, Kate and even Sami need to stay out of their children’s lives. The more you object the more they’re going to retailiate or do the opposite. There are other story lines I think the writers could take these characters too besides being meddlers and busybodies. They are not teenagers but adult grown people. Caroline has more sense than they do. Marlena has to deal with her own problems with John so that should keep her busy and out of Eric’s life. She is so concerned with trying to bring Nicole down that she has forgotten all about the one who really ruined her son’s life, Kristan. We have more nondetectives investigating and finding clues than we do the detectives ( Hope, Rafe, Roman ) who should be solving the crimes. They always end up at the end when all the excitement is over. They have so many clues that they ignore or don’t pick up on because they are only focusing on their own lives.

I know some of you will not agree with me and I am going to get alot of feedback about this, and I know this is only a soap opera, but the name of the show IS called Days of our Lives.

If the writers could read our comments the show would be up there in the ratings. Are you listening or reading WRITERS?!!!

March 9, 2014 at 12:14 pm
(48) EJABBY says:

Sami deserves what’s coming to her she is a serial cheater and so is Ej, would like to see Abigail stop her wedding and annouce she’s pregnant the same way she did to her sister Carrie. I don’t think that’s going to happen though, I think shortly before her wedding Sami or Ej will do something to piss off Nick and he will release the pics of Ej and Abigail doing it same as Kristen and Brady’s wedding then Sami will put it together and figure out that Ej is the father of Abigail’s baby then just as Johnny said BOOM no wedding and no more ejami.

March 10, 2014 at 1:56 am
(49) missy says:

Sorry to say, but I did see this coming and couldn’t be more thrilled. The show has been dragging on for a while and now it’s time to shake things up. I just wonder how Abigail is going to handle this. I wonder what Chad would think of the two baby makers, lol

March 10, 2014 at 2:08 am
(50) missy says:

Don’t you people know anything? That’s what makes this situation so fun to watch. No one would of ever imagined Ej and Abigail get to g it on in he shower, I think it will make for good tv and you all will be changing your minds when it all comes together. I just wanna know who took those photos of Ej and Abigail at the cabin. I’m thinking nick? But you never know….

March 10, 2014 at 4:08 am
(51) Tanyau says:

I say do it! Lets make her pregnant – I love Sami !!! Huge fan all her career but her career is ending with Days so lets see how this happens – maybe Sami will take the kids and leave – or maybe she will get caught in the Nick scandal and go to jail. Whatever happens – she is leaving – lets send Abby to London to visit gramma Laure for a year and bring her back with a baby just in time

March 10, 2014 at 7:39 pm
(52) EjamiFan says:

NO WAY do I go for this storyline! Abigail is just getting on her feet as an adult with a J O B. REALLY???? going to try to pass Abigail off as a “Love interest” for EJ when, at her age, SHE KNOWS ABOUT BIRTH CONTROL….or is she really TheTwit everybody thinks Abby truly is passing by Cameron and just getting involved with DiMeras? No no no I won’t accept this at all, no, NOT AT ALL. She does NOT have enough acting nor sex appeal to pull this off. James Scott…I’d REFUSE TO DO THIS STORYLINE!!!! You forget, Jennifer will NEVER go for it…she killed someone in the Dimera family years ago…disappeared to have Abby….how about Abby go join the Circus to have her fun AND an abortion. Who needs a duplicate of That Twit???!!!

March 10, 2014 at 7:47 pm
(53) JennifersSide says:

NOT gonna be…not if Jennifer has a chance to change it…Dr Dan would be an excellent choice to give Abby an abortion. NO WAY is what is going on in her mind what is going on in EJs mind NO WAY will she EVER be the love interest in the SuperCouple of the show…EJAMI!!!! Ali Sweeney has more acting performance in her little finger than Kate Manzi has in her whole body!!!! This is THE worst match EVER! James has had REAL WOMEN in his life but Abby? the babysitter?? REALLY!!! I know this is “NewSalem” but ludicrious doesn’t even begin to cover it. Teresa, maybe, but not Abigail!!!! Abigail doesn’t heat up the screen AT ALL!!!!

March 12, 2014 at 12:50 am
(54) Red says:

Is Abby walking down the same path that Sami did once upon a time? Seriously??? Can’t they think of something else. So unoriginal… She went after Austin ( who was with Carrie ), and now Ej (who is with Sami). Right now, I just want to see Sami bitch slap Abby, and kick Ej in the nuts

March 12, 2014 at 7:15 am
(55) Fran says:

Noooooo I hate the story line it’s annoying the hell out of me !!! It’s so overdone !!!

March 12, 2014 at 6:21 pm
(56) Helen H says:

I am so over this “have sex get pregnant” old story. First Abby goes after Austin like a mad person. Then she gets mad at Cameron and goes with Chad and loses her virginity. Finds out he loved her so much he lied so she dumps him when he goes to a serious operation! So immature and you hook her up with another “older” man (has she a fetish for older men, Daddy complex). She and her father had a great relationship so why the Daddy complex……….or now she is into the bad boy love. Sure Sami has created chaos but believe me you do not think she has suffered, unlike Nicole and others she never gets away with it, they always find out and she loses out. EJ said they were two of a kind and he accepted her, now he pulls this on his “true” love. Sorry I know she is leaving but EJ should be with someone more feisty and gives him a “run for his money” so to speak. Cannot think of anyone on the show so far to do that , except Sami. Look what he gave up for her to get her out of jail and now he does this. Does not make sense!

March 14, 2014 at 12:51 pm
(57) Kathy Stone says:

I really hope abigail is not pregnant with EJ’S baby. To predictable

March 15, 2014 at 12:05 am
(58) Mb says:

Geez people it’s a soap opera not reality
Some of you need to step away from DOOL and see reality

March 15, 2014 at 5:15 pm
(59) Becky says:

EJ will be with Abigail when she gets results making it impossible for her to hide
