I wonder if it could have been Hayt/Duncan. Although he wasn't prescient per se, might there be some other reason Alia wouldn't have been able to see him in the future as the father? I ask this because Alia didn't quite say "there's a path where I see my child," she said "I see...my child." It sounds more like this was a future that she thought was going to happen, not one arbitrary possibility. Also she had, by this time, already developed a fascination with Hayt and they'd kissed, so I find it more than likely that she would project into the future with Hayt as a reasonable choice for a mate, not Paul. Since the oracles own desires and expectation of their own choices will figure into the future that they'll see, I don't see a reason why Alia would be envisioning futures with Paul as the father of her child. I don't think she had a thing for Paul.

It was obviously an alternate timeline be in reality she jumped out of a window.

Right, but we don't really know how much the desires of the oracle affect which visions come to them or not. I definitely agree with Hayt's assessment that Paul was the logical answer in interpreting Alia's vision. I'm just wondering whether he was right.
