No Baby Break For Emme Ry­lan!

As if we needed any fur­ther proof that noth­ing slows down GEN­ERAL HOS­PI­TAL’S Emme Ry­lan (Lulu), she tells Soaps In Depth that, after giv­ing birth to baby No. 3 — a daugh­ter due any day at press time — she isn’t go­ing on ma­ter­nity leave!

The In Depth Story: “We get two weeks of va­ca­tion a year that I never use be­cause we have so many dark weeks,” shares Ry­lan, “so I’m pair­ing that va­ca­tion [ start­ing last week] with the [ show’s] three­week hia­tus in July.”

So while Ry­lan won’t miss a beat as Lulu, she’ll have five weeks away from the crazi­ness of Port Charles to wel­come her daugh­ter to the nest that she shares with fi­ancé Don Money and their sons, Jack­son, 7, and Levi, 5. And after that? “I’m go­ing to bring her to work,” she says. “I usu­ally work a cou­ple of days a week.

“With Levi,” she adds, “I went back to THE YOUNG & THE REST­LESS [dur­ing her stint as Abby] when he was four weeks old, and that worked for us. I was ready, and happy to have a rea­son to get out of the house.”

And not just any place, ei­ther. “It was nice to have some­where to go where some­one washes my hair!” she laughs. “That will be the only time for 12 weeks that I won’t have barf in my hair!”

While Ry­lan will be punch­ing the clock again not long after the stork’s visit, Money will be tak­ing a bit of a break after fin­ish­ing edit­ing the thriller Truth Or Dare, star­ring GH’S Bry­tni Sarpy (Va­lerie). “He’s not go­ing back to work till Jan­uary,” Ry­lan says. “He’s go­ing to come to work with me and the baby.

“He’s a re­ally good dad,” she goes on. “He’s a part of all of it. It’s fun.”

Shock­ingly, Ry­lan is “ex­cited about the barf in the hair” that comes with hav­ing a new­born. “I love it!”
