One fan suggested that Kaya, the teenage acting as a surrogate for the couple, is actually Dan's own daughter, tweeting: "I'm calling it now half an hour in, she was in care and I think she's his [daughter] and he had a secret child. Then she'll end up giving birth to her brother or sister." Another added: "I was actually thinking that Kaya was Dan's daughter and trying to get close to him." A third person agreed, tweeting: "Yes why would she want to do this if not for the money?? Has to be a twist!"
