Maloney explained: "All along, Toadie has wanted Sonya (Eve Morie) to have their baby at the hospital. He and Sonya had so much trouble getting pregnant in the first place, so Toadie's been really worried about things going wrong from day dot.
"The labour just seems to stop and stall. Everything seems to be taking far too long. Toadie's not at all convinced that it's going okay, even though the doula assures him that it's fine.
"Toadie tries everything he can to convince Sonya to go to the hospital and be checked out - annoying her greatly in the process - but nothing works. The longer the labour goes on and nothing happens, the more tense the situation at home becomes."
The star continued: "This is Toadie's worst nightmare. And, they're not at the hospital yet."
Maloney conceded that he would "react similar to Toadie", adding: "I'd be terribly upset. I could definitely relate to what he's going through - it wasn't that hard to pretend.
"You would just feel so helpless. In labour, men are the bystanders and they get to see how strong a woman really is."
