Oh no I imagine it will be exactly that:
V/O: Peter is finding it hard to cope with Emily's stressful pregnancy.
Peter (tearfully): Oh God it's so hard, Emily's just suffering so much and (voice breaks) it hurts (sobs)
*camera frantically pans away from Emily who is clearly just fine*
And others will imagine them to be a happy loving couple celebrating the birth of their new baby. It is all in the perception.
