I am actually done questioning the writers’ logic at this time. Because from what I have seen, they clearly do not have such a thing. They are making Klaus and Elijah OOC and they do not even care.
Now, we are all worried Klaus won’t be there when his child is born. Tbh, I used to believe he will be there because this show is supposed to be centered around family and Klaus’s redemption. How can you let this child redeem him if he weren’t even there when the child is born? But now, I am not sure, since the writers aren’t making sense. They are capable of doing whatever they want to push their ships.
Can I just say that my father wasn’t there when I was born but that doesn’t mean he loves me any less or that he’s any less of my father. Your birth is a moment that you don’t remember and is inconsequential in the long run. What matters is what happens every moment after that child is born, how the parent handles all the firsts and the trials and whether they can make the sacrifices needed for their child to be happy and safe.
We don’t know the circumstances of the birth yet, it could be in the middle of a plot storm where everyone is separated and Klaus can’t be there in time, it could happen in a multitude of different ways but whether Klaus is present doesn’t affect his love of the baby and being a father and being a romantic interest are two completely different things.
