Zack Hudson is in a state over everything that's happened recently. His shock HIV diagnosis almost broke him, but with the concerning news about his and Whitney Dean's baby, it's almost too much.

When he breaks down on sister Sharon Watts, she is worried, knowing that there's more to his distress than he's letting on. 

Still feeling ashamed about his diagnosis, Zack struggles to tell Sharon his news.

After Sharon pushes him to reveal why he's so upset, he tells her that the baby has had an omphalocele diagnosis. A sympathetic Sharon tries to comfort her brother, sharing her own experiences of being a parent.

Grateful to Sharon when she encourages him to fight for Whitney and the baby, Zac is reassured by her promise that she'll always be there to support him.

Can he do the same for Whitney and their child?
