EMMERDALE fans are convinced they have solved the identity of Caleb Milligan's second child.
Viewers were left stunned when it was revealed that Caleb (Will Ash) was the son of Frank Tate (Norman Bowler) and a dad to the village nanny Nicky (Lewis Cope) – but what else is he hiding?
He has joined forces with his son Nicky to bring down Kim Tate’s (Claire King) beloved Home Farm on the basis that he is the long lost son of her late husband.
However, Caleb surprised viewers once again when he told his love interest Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi) that he didn't want his "kids" to find out about their relationship, meaning he was the father of at least two children.
Viewers have speculated who they think his second child could be and are convinced his secret child could end up arriving in the village to expose him.
One viewer shared their wild theory on an Emmerdale fan forum page, pointing out that Nicky previously told Kim he had five siblings.

They wrote: "How many kids do you think Caleb and his wife have when Nicky was interviewed for nanny position he said he had five siblings possibly part of his cover but could it be the truth.
"I'd like one of Caleb's kids to be introduced and them not be on board with Caleb and Nicky plan."
Another fan replied: "I remember one time when Nicky and Caleb were talking Caleb mentioned him (Nicky) having a sister but at no other time has he mentioned her.
"Nicky keeps talking about Caleb saving the house for his mother so the daughter must not live with her so she’s over 18. What age is Nicky? So I’d say he has two children, a boy and a girl. I think Nicky’s five siblings is part of his lie."

A third Emmerdale fan suggested Caleb's ex-wife could be called Adrian.
They theorised: "Adrian is someone close to Caleb because they know about his ‘take Kim’s money plan’ but I wonder if they know about the Nicky-Gabby part.
"I would not be comfortable knowing a friend made his son sleep with a woman so he could get her money. That’s weird.
"I think Adrian is either Nicky’s mother or a fake name for someone known to us (viewers) as someone else. Adrian is a common boy’s name but it is also a girl’s name.
"They got clever not putting Nicky’s surname in the credits. So I wouldn’t be surprised if the mysterious Adrian is a woman."
Meanwhile, it seems like Nicky's past is catching up with him, as his old friend Ally (Josh Horrocks) has arrived in the village.
Fans of the show are speculating that Nicky may be forced to reveal his true identity and past to Gabby and the rest of the residents.
To make matters worse, Nicky and Ally shared a kiss behind Gabby's back, leading some viewers to wonder if Ally could cause even more trouble for Nicky and his relationship with Gabby.
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV and ITVX.
