Romeo was able to face off against Mthunzi, but he's met his match it seems - in a baby. He grew up without a father and doesn't want to be a bad dad, but has no idea how to be a good one. #Scandal fans understand where he comes from and hopes things will work out for the best eventually.
Romeo and Xolile's child has been born and is already settled in the hearts of the Langa family and Grace.
One person yet to melt and gush is the father, Romeo. As soon as reality hit him and it sunk in that he is now a child's dad, he bailed.
It was the only thing he could think of doing in his panic, but that doesn't mean he doesn't want to be in his child's life - he's just scared of failing.
Briefly.co.za noticed that many of Scandal's viewers actually feel for Romeo, despite the hate he's getting from others.
The fact that he has no role model is hindering him from being the best dad, and Mzansi doesn't blame him.
They're just hoping that he'll find a way to overcome his fear - if Xolile lets him. She furious and doesn't want Romeo near her baby.
