Bold and the Beautiful actress Jacqueline MacInnes Wood announced that she is expecting. This will make baby number three for the actress and her hubby Elan Ruspoli.
Wood portrays Steffy Forrester on the CBS soap. Steffy has two children, one with Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) and the other with John "Finn" Finnegan (Tanner Novlan). B&B viewers will recall that paternity tests were needed for both of Steffy's children.
While the actress can look forward to her bundle of joy arriving in spring 2022, what about Steffy? The mother of two is busy defending her family from the evil Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown). To make matters worse, Sheila has teamed up with Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan). Deacon seems to be making progress in forging a relationship with his daughter Hope Logan (Annika Noelle).
Neither Steffy nor her ex, Liam, wants Deacon around. B&B spoilers for the upcoming weeks reveal Steffy and Liam will spend time together to brainstorm keeping Deacon away from Hope. Steffy and Liam have a history of falling into bed when spending time together. Could the pair hit the sheets again on Bold and the Beautiful?
Bold and the Beautiful: Another 'Who Is the Daddy' Plot for Steffy?
Steffy wasn't sure if Liam or his father, Bill Spencer (Don Diamont), was her first child's father. The baby turned out to be Liam's.
Then with baby number two, the father could have been Liam's or Finn's. After some paternity switching drama, the baby was Finn's.
Now that Jacqueline is pregnant in real life, is baby number three on the horizon on Bold and the Beautiful? If so, will Steffy need a third paternity test? Of course, her husband Finn could be the father of her third child.
However, it would be more drama if Steffy was unsure about the daddy. Sheila could step in to cause more trouble. She could even switch the paternity results on a third baby.
Finn and Steffy's marriage could end, as well as Hope and Liam's. Sheila could very well get her wish of breaking up both couples. A bonus for Sheila would be if Finn turned to Hope in the aftermath of a paternity scandal. With Jacqueline being pregnant in real life, a third baby isn't farfetched for much soapy drama on Bold and the Beautiful.
B&B: Steffy's Hands Too Full For A Baby?
Let's face it, Steffy is a busy woman. She is married with a small child and a baby. In addition, she is a co-CEO of a highly successful fashion company.
Also, Steffy has to keep her wicked mother-in-law away from Finn and Hayes. Bold and the Beautiful spoilers suggest that Steffy and Hope will butt heads over Deacon. Hope may not appreciate Steffy conspiring with Liam to keep Deacon away. So Steffy might be a little too busy for a baby at the moment.
The CBS soap might use soapy methods of hiding the actress's real-life pregnancy. Watch out for oversized purses and bulky tops. Steffy could spend a lot of time behind her desk or large leafy plants. Perhaps B&B would come up with more clever ways to hide Wood's growing belly.
It is unknown whether the pregnancy will be written in. The only certain thing is that Steffy will remain in the middle of the drama on The Bold and the Beautiful.
