After learning that baby Reuben’s middle name was Mackenzie Boyd’s last name during Friday’s episode of Emmerdale, Charity Dingle suffered yet another setback.
After learning that Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb), the owner of an Emmerdale pub, had an affair with Chloe Harris (Emma Atkins), they broke up.
But as a result of their one-night stand, Chloe unexpectedly became pregnant, and she gave birth to Reuben very quickly.
The young mother has confirmed to Mack that he is the father, but the supporters are not so sure.
Mack and Chloe visited the registry office on Friday to arrange Reuben’s birth certificate.
Reuben would adopt Chloe’s last name, Harris, but he would keep his middle name, Boyd.
Since then, fans have developed their own wild theories about Reuben’s real father, with one even speculating that Mack might abduct the newborn child.
Tweeting about Emmerdale, @GeorgiaBowring stated: “Mack will kidnap the baby!”
Oh, well since they’re going to put his name on the birth certificate – then it’s not Mack’s child, tweeted @Katie_Murphy776. Coming up is a plot twist.
Nate is allegedly the father of baby Reuben, according to speculation from others, including @PaulPoeUK, who tweeted: “It’s going to all kick off when it turns out the father of Chloe’s baby is Nate. #Emmerdale.”
The prediction from @MickJohnPNEFC continued, “Nate’s the dad #emmerdale.”
“Ooh Nate’s getting it now,” @EnfieldGarry tweeted. #Emmerdale.”
Charity looked devastated as Chloe, Mack, and Reuben entered the cafe together.
Mack admitted they had been to the registry office as Chloe gave her reasons to leave.
“It’s not a big deal, but we put my name on the birth certificate,” Mack said.
Not for my benefit, but for Reuben’s, so he has a father and a mother listed there.
The birth certificate, Charity demanded, adding, “His surname I am just curious.”
“Harris, it’s Harris… Reuben Boyd Harris,” Mack retorted.
