The Bold and the Beautiful: Nicole becomes Maya's surrogate
On last week's episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, Rick and Maya asked Nicole to be their surrogate so they could have a child of their own. Nicole contemplated the huge decision and despite Zende's protests, Nicole agreed to carry Maya and Rick's child.
As with all soap opera pregnancies, this one's sure to be filled with drama. So how will Nicole's surrogacy storyline play out?
Here's a couple of possibilities.
Nicole and Zende's relationship suffers
When Nicole told Zende about being Maya's surrogate, he wasn't supportive of her decision. He tried to talk Nicole out of the idea by saying carrying a baby would change her life. She'd have to put everything on hold and they wouldn't be able to do the things they love to do. Nicole looked like she was swayed by Zende's words, but in the end her bond with her sister won out and she agreed to be Maya's surrogate.
Once Zende learns Nicole went against his wishes, there's bound to be tension in their relationship. Can they work through their problems? Or will the surrogacy put a damper on their blossoming relationship?
Whenever there's a pregnancy on a soap opera, there's going to be complications. With Zende disapproving of Nicole's decision, not to mention her parents reactions when they hear the news, it could cause stress to Nicole and she loses the baby.
However, she'll keep it a secret from Rick and Maya because she knows how much this baby means to them. She'll find a way to get pregnant and pass the baby off as Rick and Maya's so they can have the baby they deserve.
Nicole becames attached to the baby
Being a surrogate is a big responsibility and even though Nicole agreed to it, she may not realize how hard it is. She thinks she's doing what's right for Rick and Maya, but as her pregnancy progresses she'll form a bond with the baby. She'll try to fight the bond, but once the baby's born her connection to her or him will grow and she'll find it hard to give up her child.
