In Salem, secrets never stay secret for long, and in these spoilers from DAYS OF OUR LIVES, Lani’s shocking revelation will have explosive consequences for her relationships with both JJ and Eli. But how much longer can she keep her other secret?
Lani continues to struggle with keeping the secret that the baby she’s carrying is actually Eli’s. She can’t even meet JJ’s gaze when they’re sitting together in the Brady Pub and he expresses his joy that she’s carrying his child. And things get even more awkward when Eli sits down with her privately and reminds her of the heartbreaking truth. “That baby,” he whispers, “is my child.”

And when Lani takes the stand in court, she is legally forced to answer any and all questions truthfully. “Detective Price,” Justin reminds her, “you are under oath.” And being a good officer, she can’t help but tell the truth when asked point blank. “I slept with Eli Grant,” she confesses publicly, tears welling up in her eyes.
Shocked and enraged, JJ leaps to his feet and has to be physically restrained by Justin as he attempts to rush towards the woman who cheated on him. “You slept with Eli?!” he yells, pushing back. As Lani stands watching and crying from the stand, JJ turns around and slugs Eli, knocking him to the floor! And if this is how JJ reacts to finding out Lani cheated on him, imagine how he’ll respond to learn that Eli is also the father of her baby!
