Kirin will face a tough challenge as he struggles to cope with the pressure of fatherhood.
Kirin’s life recently changed forever as he found out that he was baby Johnny’s father and not Adam Barton as everyone first thought.
Once the news of Johnny’s true paternity and Rakesh’s constant meddling with the test results has sunk in, Kirin is determined to prove that he has what it takes to be a father.
But unfortunately Kirin doesn’t cope very well with his new responsibilities and he can’t help feeling jealous when he sees the natural bond that Adam has with the youngster.
Vanessa (played by Michelle Hardwick) revealed, “Vanessa understands that Kirin would find it difficult. Goodness me, nobody has struggled as much as Vanessa has. It has taken her a long time to bond with baby Johnny. Adam did so much better than she did when she struggled for the first few months.”
As the pressure builds up for Kirin, he takes his frustrations out on Adam by ordering him to stay away from his son. Ouch, that’s harsh!
Kirin later feels guilty for what he has said and apologises to Adam which leads to a new found understanding between them both as Adam teaches Kirin how to feed baby Johnny.
But not long after, Adam faces heartbreak of his own when he sees the pair together and he makes a massive decision. Will Adam realise that he needs to take a step back? Or wil he find it difficult to leave baby Johnny?
