It’s baby time! The For­rester man­sion is buzzing on Mon­day 3 April as Caro­line (Lin­sey God­frey) goes into labour. And while she’s up­stairs in the birthing pool go­ing over pre­cious mem­o­ries of her ro­mance with hubby Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), down­stairs the For­resters are get­ting gabby. On Tues­day 4 April, Ridge’s ex-wife Brooke (Kather­ine Kelly Lang) lets slip to his jeal­ous lit­tle brother Rick (Ja­cob Young) that Caro­line is hav­ing a “mir­a­cle” baby since Ridge must’ve had his Paris va­sec­tomy re­versed…

Mean­while, Ridge’s son Thomas (Pier­son Fodé) who, un­known to ev­ery­one but Ridge and Caro­line is their baby’s bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther, has been banned from the birthing room but can’t sup­press his ex­cite­ment at meet­ing his new “baby brother”. And as the baby en­ters the world, grandpa Eric (John McCook) sheds a tear and com­ments that Ridge’s late mother Stephanie (Su­san Flan­nery) would be so proud of the new ad­di­tion to the fam­ily “born of pure love” – not re­al­is­ing that the baby is re­ally the prod­uct of a drunken rape in Septem­ber 2016. Yes, while some ba­bies are born with a sil­ver spoon in their mouths, a true For­rester baby is swad­dled in 100% pure scan­dal!

BROTHER-SON

On Thursday 6 April, Ridge and Caro­line coo over “our mir­a­cle, our son” and Caro­line warns Ridge, “I un­der­stand why your in­stinct is to keep Thomas away. I know that you’re just be­ing pro­tec­tive of me and the se­cret and I don’t re­ally see how we can avoid it.” So Ridge pops down­stairs to in­vite his son to meet the baby. And the sight of lit­tle Dou­glas rocks Thomas. “I feel so pro­tec­tive of him,” he tells Caro­line. He vows to pro­tect the baby, telling Ridge, “You have an in­cred­i­ble wife, Dad, and a beau­ti­ful baby boy. I would be lucky to have a life like yours.” Well, it’s go­ing to be just two months un­til at least one part of that wish comes true…

Ridge and Caro­line wel­come the new­est ad­di­tion to the For­rester fam­ily. Clue­less Thomas loves his lit­tle “brother”.
