This is what I was thinking as well. They could’ve still ended the movie with his child being held up, because the audience would assume that he’d got with one of the lionesses. As it is, Simba and Nala didn’t seem so much in love, but that she was in heat.
She could of been in heat; but I got the feeling and emotion that it was more " Absent makes the heart grow fonder " as she was apart from Simba for a couple of years ad she missed him, assumed that she was dead and it was just emotions and feelings taking over and finally seeing Simba again.

As an aside, I find it sad that the two female characters in this movie are just a means to an end (baby), not really characters. Their attempt to make Nala seem empowered was fake feminism in the same vein as Jasmine’s “I’m not a prize to be won.” I'm surprised that TLM and B&tB have got more complaints than Aladdin
and TLK in that regard. I've found female characters are often portrayed negatively (or just absent) moreso in films that are usually considered "for boys." What's sad is there are usually more male characters than female characters even in films designated "for girls."
I don't really like or enjoy how Nala was basically a item for the male character but she wasn't really incredibly sexist. She is stronger than Simba and more level headed and responsible and the voice of reason. Hell Nala would of made a ten times better ruler than Simba and could of fought Scar for the throne but it has to be a male Lion sigh. You could argue that it's not how Lion's work but how many Lions do you see going around singing " I can't wait to be King " ?!
The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast complaints are a little stupid. Beast gives Belle a chance to leave to go and see her Father and I think if there wasn't wolves around his kingdom then he would of let Belle escape from his kingdom after yelling and screaming at her in the Rose Room. Domestic abuse is not letting the women leave the relationship what-so-ever.
Ariel loved Eric even before the gamble she made with Ursula so all the complaints that she " sold her soul for a man " is not really all that true. She did it to be human mostly and Eric was just something else to sweeten the deal, like when you go to Mc Donalds and get a free Chicken Nugget. Ariel originally wanted a 10 pack of Chicken Nugget but she got 11 Nuggets instead. She didn't go to Ursula for the " Extra Chicken Nugget "
I'm sleepy so I hope that this makes sense.
