Emmerdale: Robert Sugden has sparked major concern with viewers after a scene with his son [ITV]
On Friday night, the character was seen bonding with his new son, who Rebecca White gave birth to earlier this week.
The Emmerdale favourite, played by Ryan Hawley, had planned to leave the village and not be a part of the child’s life.
But after being convicted by estranged husband Aaron Dingle, played by Danny Miller, Robert decided to stay and visited Home Farm to see his kid.
Holding the baby in the crook of his arm, Robert tearfully vowed to be there for his son no matter what.
