Chloe (played by Jessie Elland) has made the decision to keep her baby, which was the result of a one-night stand with Mackenize (Lawrence Robb) earlier this year. After struggling with her pregnancy secret for weeks, Chloe realised on Thursday’s episode of the ITV soap that Mackenzie had worked out he’s the father after hearing from Charity that she’s pregnant. As the two discussed their plans, they agreed nobody would find out Mackenzie is the father. The villager then went home to Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) and proposed. Following this, Emmerdale fans think they’ve “worked out” a big reveal during a Christmas wedding.
Once Mackenzie heard about Chloe, he rushed over to find out the truth.
“Well, there’s no need to guess what this is about,” Chloe said sarcastically as he walked in.
“I knew Charity wouldn’t keep her mouth shut for long, but less than a day…”
“So, it’s true then?” Mackenzie asked, shocked and after answers.
“Before you say anything, yeah, it’s yours and yeah, I’m going to keep it,” the 19-year-old replied.

“Chloe, I can’t have this baby with you, man. It’s gonna destroy everything with Charity,” Mackenzie immediately replied.
He went on to blame Chloe, asking: “What on earth were you thinking? Have you ever even heard of a morning-after pill?”
Stunned, Chloe hit back: “Well, I don’t remember you calling around with one!”
She continued: “What? It didn’t cross your mind? Kind of the same way a condom didn’t?”
After apologising, Mackenzie asked: “Do you actually want a kid? Like have you thought about this?”
“Well, it beats the baby growing up knowing its dad didn’t want it to exist,” Chloe commented.
She added: “Look, If anyone asks, it was a hook-up from a dating app who turned out to be a loser with a fake name.”
“You’ve got it all figured out,” the concerned resident muttered.
He continued: “I’ll find a way of sorting out maintenance for you. I’m not that much of a loser.”
However, fans believe the pair won’t be able to keep their secret safe for very long.
Following the chat, Mackenzie went home and proposed to Charity, who was delighted and informed everyone immediately.
With a wedding now on the cards in the run-up to Christmas, soap fans think they have the plot “solved”.
