    Glad, yes...because it can help develop storylines with Paul. Love Doug Davidson but ever since Paul broke up with Nikki, he has not had good storylines to showcase this great actor. WHAT AGE WILL HIS SON BE? AND WHO WILL HE PAL AROUND WITH depends on how exciting it can become. I'm gonna have to look for a pic of Peter Porte to see if he resembles Paul.

    Found him...handsome, in 30's?
    Looks like a mix of Ronan and Adam.
    Bring him on!

    I agree with FL senior fan.... I hope so to enable Paul to have more screen time...they underutilize a fine actor with Doug Davidson.

    This will be good. Finally some storyline for poor Paul. He hasn't had a storyline forever. I'm sure now that Desperate Housewives is cancelled and on it's last season they are going to find a way to bring back Eva Longoria (Isabella) Ricky's mom. Then they can bring back Christine too.
