New mom Caro­line (Lin­sey God­frey) is thrilled when her hubby Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) ro­mances her with a din­ner date at home on Thurs­day 17 Au­gust. Amid all the drama about re­veal­ing baby Dou­glas’s (Abi­gail and Brielle Rivera) pa­ter­nity, they haven’t had much time to­gether lately. But just af­ter Caro­line prom­ises Ridge, “I’m yours for­ever,” he turns the ta­bles with a dish not on the menu – di­vorce!

PIGGY IN THE MID­DLE

Ridge pulls away af­ter flash­ing back to Caro­line’s tear­ful, scream­ing ad­mis­sion that his son Thomas (Pier­son Fodé) is their baby’s bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther. Thorsten says that on Fri­day 18 Au­gust “it’s not that he has fallen out of love with her, Ridge is try­ing to do the right thing by her. He’s not over her. It should come across as a huge sac­ri­fice on his part. Ridge feels that Thomas and Caro­line should be to­gether since that’s what’s best for the baby”. Ridge tells Caro­line, “You have got to know that there isn’t a man in this world that loved you more than I did. And there never will be. But you and Thomas, you have a con­nec­tion that is only go­ing to grow more. That is great for Dou­glas. Not so great for me. ’Cause I can’t fight that.”

SAY­ING GOOD­BYE

Caro­line gen­tly ad­mits, “If we’re be­ing hon­est, it hasn’t been the same since I got preg­nant.” And with tears in their eyes, the pair join hands over one last de­sign sketch to­gether and flash back through their ro­man­tic mo­ments since that first ir­re­sistible con­nec­tion they shared while draw­ing to­gether in Septem­ber 2015 while Ridge was re­cov­er­ing from fall­ing out of Bill’s (Don Di­a­mont) he­li­copter. Now Ridge is free and, co­in­ci­den­tally, so is his life­long love Brooke (Kather­ine Kelly Lang). Of course that la­tent at­trac­tion to his son’s baby­mama won’t be a prob­lem again. “Who knows what is go­ing on in his head,” jokes Thorsten.

Thomas is get­ting his girl and he didn’t even have to ask. As far as break-ups go, this is one of Bold’s lamest.

Ba­bies ruin ev­ery­thing: now Caro­line, Dou­glas and Thomas must be a fam­ily.
