Home and Away's Axle Whitehead has confessed if he was in Liam Murphy's situation, he wouldn't stand by his wife. Bianca has confessed she's pregnant to his arch rival Heath Braxton, after she had a fling with the bad boy while Liam was in rehab for prescription drug addiction. Axle told The West Australian newspaper: "I would hate to be in that situation. It takes a big man to father someone else's child. "I don't know if I could be the bigger man and go through with it. If I were him I'd probably leave town and start afresh somewhere." Lisa Gormley, who plays Bianca, recently revealed that the couple will consider leaving Summer Bay to try and escape their love triangle with Heath. Meanwhile, Ada Nicodemou, who plays single mum Leah Patterson-Baker, has revealed her character won't get pregnant on the show. The Home and Away star and husband Chrys Xipolitas are currently expecting their first child together, due in August, and she had previously revealed scriptwriters were considering writing the pregnancy into the show to explain her baby bump. But Ada confirmed to Australia's Herald Sun Leah won't get pregnant before she takes her maternity leave from Summer Bay, and she will just have to hide the bump. Ada said: "[There'll be] lots of loose-fitting clothes, I think." The 34-year-old actress also revealed she still doesn't know the sex of her baby. She said: "I am a bit of a control freak so it's strange, but we want to be surprised. To tell you the truth, all I care about is having a healthy baby."
