    Who do you think is Judith's biological father? Is it Rick? Or is it Shane?

    I'm interested to know what the fandom thinks of this question. We'll probably never know the true answer (unless Robert Kirkman decides to tell us one day), but I thought it could be an interesting discussion/speculation post.

    Personally, I think it's Shane.

    I think it's Shane's. Lori and Shane probably had sex more than once or twice I could guess to Rick's one (or two in the shower?), In the comics it was only one time. I thought it was funny that Maggie brought up in 6A with Judith looking like Lori.... I wonder if she sees Rick in there.
    I personally think the babies look more and more like Shane as time goes on lol

    I think it was Shane's in the comics and it's Rick's in the TV show.

    I think Shane is Judith's bio dad. But, I doubt this will ever be addressed or brought up on the show.

    I think Shane is her father. I don't think we will ever know for sure while the show is on the air but I will think Shane until it is proven otherwise. Lol.

    I think Judith is Shane's. I agree with Yvette Nicole Brown. This video from the Madison square garden premiere when she told Andy Judith looked awful Shane like. Hilarious.

    I love how Danai's "Awwwwwwwwwwww" can be heard when looking at bb! Andy lol Accurate.

    YNB should host Talking Dead instead imo. She gets the show.

    Definitely Shane. Although I can't pinpoint why exactly I think this.

    Shane... work it out. She found out she was prego on the farm. That points to me that its Shane the father. The time we saw her with Rick its unlikely she found out she was pregnant a few days later. Shane Shane Shane is the father but Rick is the daddy

    I agree with this.
    No matter what, I think it will always be Rick once he's the one who's there for her.

    Shane's the bio dad. It will be interesting to see who they cast as time goes on and the Judiths have to be older. I could see them casting toddlers with brunette hair, like her blond hair has darkened up.

    Definitely Shane. I like it that way because then Rick has a piece of his best friend and his wife to carry with him. I know it sounds weird and not sweet considering how much they hurt him, but I still think Rick really loved both Shane and Lori so I find it sweet that he is caring for their baby as his own.

    Shane's, though, it will never be addressed further.

    Regardless, she is Carl's blood, and Rick would take her as his own For that fact alone. To keep his son's sister safe, and likely out of respect to Shane and Lori, as well. But at this point, I think he sees her as his and doesn't make any distinctions.

    Can I just say how lovely the idea of Rick and Michonne raising this little girl with no blood ties to either of them as if she's their own is a really beautiful thing that exemplifies what family has been defined as on this show. It's not about blood, it's about the bond.

    I remember seeing a post somewhere about Judith being Ricks daughter because when they got to the CDC, they gave blood samples, and if Lori was pregnant then Jenner would say something. But I don't know if that situation is applicable because Jenner didn't test it to check if she was pregnant, he checked to see if they had the infection.
    Overall though, I think Judith is Shane's daughter.

    Yes I agree with Rick as the daddy. When you're out there crushing up acorns trying to get the baby to survive by any means, you're the daddy.

    Judy is Shane's biological child.

    Rick woke up around Day 59 of the outbreak. On Day 60, Lori and Shane had sex at the quarry camp (though presumably they'd been having sex for a while), then Rick and Lori have sex that night.

    On Day 68, that's when Glenn retrieved the pregnancy test for Lori since she skipped a period and had a feeling she was pregnant. She takes the test, and it shows positive.

    A missed period is generally two weeks after implantation. Meaning Lori's skipped period couldn't have been a result of having sex with Rick (just 8 days prior).

    The new Judith has dark hair and brown eyes now. But obviously Rick is daddy, he loves that baby so much it's really admirable.
