Tawny tells Amber that she has to start on pre-natal vitamins right away and take care of this little Spencer baby in her tummy. This is a great situation. That bun in her oven is a potential goldmine and they can make this work. Amber reminds her that it is not Liam’s but Oliver’s. Tawny thinks that is just secondary. Liam already thinks he slept with her so believing the baby is his will not be a big stretch.
