If one of the brothers were to father an illegitimate kid (well, besides the short-lived one that was a supernatural Amazonian tasked with murdering her dad), Dean would’ve always assumed it would have been him. Even before the vasectomy he got after everything that went down with Ben and then Emma, Dean’s always slept around a hell of a lot more than Sam has—though he supposes that Sam’s stint without a soul may be the only existing exception to that rule, and if Sam was actively failing to use protection whenever he could get away with it for a six-month period—well, consequences like Blossom suddenly make a hell of a lot more sense. Still, it’s hard for Dean to wrap his head around the idea that Sam—his goody-two-shoes prima-donna little brother—could have been the Winchester to mess up badly enough to knock up a girl out of wedlock. That kind of shit has always been Dean’s line, not Sam’s.
(Or: Sam knocks up the girl from the UFO-sighting camp while soulless, then faces the consequences three and a half years later. Canon-divergent AU of the Season 8 finale.)

He sits in the front seat with his head in his hands while Blossom screams and wails behind him, and he wishes more than anything that he could take her back to the bunker to strategize with Dean how to raise this kid together, but he can’t. Dean feels like a giant-ass hole punching through Sam’s chest right where it hurts the most. Dean left Sam, not the other way around; it was Dean who said he couldn’t live with Sam if Blossom was in the picture; Sam’s not going to come crying back to the man who left him after not three hours on his own, especially not at Blossom’s expense. But, fuck, Sam can’t do this without Dean. Dean’s the one who’s good with kids; Dean’s the only one who knows how to calm Sam down when he starts feeling—unmoored, panicked.
