For the longest time, Felicity has said she doesn’t want kids. But this week, her change of heart could save her relationship.

In recent episodes of Home and Away, Tane (Ethan Browne) confronted his wife about not wanting children. His recent trip to visit family in New Zealand reminded him of what he’s been missing – and now he just can’t let it go.

While Flick (Jacqui Purvis), who has been open about her fears, promised Tane she would think about it, the truth is she may never be ready.

“Their conversation doesn’t really go as well as expected,” Ethan tells TV WEEK.

“Tane is all for it, and Felicity is hesitant [to have kids].”

During a night on the town with friend Harper (Jessica Redmayne) and her brother Cash (Nicholas Cartwright), Flick gets an insight into how much Tane is hurting.

He desperately wants children and Flick’s hesitation is stopping him from true happiness. When Cash checks in, Tane divulges his private pain. Can he truly be happy without a family?

The next morning, Tane nurses a heavy hangover, while Flick deliberates what to do. In a last-ditch effort to save her marriage, she turns to her husband and tells him what he’s been desperate to hear: “I’m ready to start trying for a baby.” Tane can’t believe it.

“Felicity giving [Tane] the green light to start a family is everything he could have asked for,” Ethan says. “He’s just over the moon.”

But a buoyed Tane doesn’t notice the hesitation written all over his wife’s face. Has she made the right decision or caused an even bigger problem for herself?
