EastEnders Lily’s baby daddy ‘not Ricky Jr’ as BBC viewers spot major ‘cover up’

EastEnders finally revealed that Ricky Jr is the father of Lily Slater's baby – but fans aren't convinced.

Viewers have been eager to find out who slept with 12-year-old Lily ever since doctors revealed she was pregnant on New Year's Day.

During Wednesday's instalment (January 4) of the BBC soap, Stacey witnessed an interaction between Ricky Jr and Lily as the pair caught eyes and waved at each other.

When Lily spotted her mum through the window, she immediately moved out of sight, prompting Stacey to conclude that Ricky must be the father.

With words of encouragement from Jean, Lily eventually opened up and revealed they are correct – Ricky Jr is the father of her baby.

Lily begged her mum and grandmother to keep Ricky's identity a secret, insisting that no one can know the truth behind her pregnancy, especially not the dad himself.

But while it seems the secret is finally out, fans have taken to social media to speculate that Lily is lying and is doing so to cover up for the real father.

Taking to Facebook with their theories, one fan penned: "I think she's using Ricky to cover for someone."

Echoing these thoughts, another person shared: "I don't think it Ricky and she said he can't know so why would she that…she covering for someone and I think it someone a bit older."

Agreeing, a third wrote: "I think she's using Ricky to cover for someone."

Someone else added: "I’m not convinced it’s him I think he was a get out for her."

"Don’t think it’s Ricky thinks she wants to shut them up," tweeted another as someone else agreed: "Nah it ain’t Ricky Jr, she’s just saying that so they leave her alone."

The reveal of Ricky Jr being the father may not have come as a surprise as many viewers believed they had pieced it together after recalling previous scenes.

Back in November, both Lily and Ricky had major things to deal with in their personal lives and fans remembered the son of Sam Mitchell and Jack Branning was often disappearing to "meet his mates".

Another viewer recalled Lily smiling at her phone when it appeared she'd received a message from someone, the very same time Ricky snuck off to meet an unknown figure.
