Ziggy Astoni (played by Sophie Dillman) and her boyfriend, Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor) are at loggerheads over their unborn baby's surname on Home and Away (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

On a feminist mission, Ziggy reckons the baby's surname should be Astoni.

After all, pregnant Ziggy is the one who is going to be carrying around their baby until it is born.

But Dean believes that a child only has their mum's surname if the dad is a deadbeat.

It stirs up bad memories over what happened when he discovered he had a long lost son, Jai Simmons.

Can the couple reach a compromise?

However, they soon have more alarming matters to worry about when Ziggy accidentally trips and falls down the stairs at Salt...

Dean is horrified as he rushes to the scene.

Are Ziggy and his unborn baby both unharmed?
