Y&R A Back-to-school Re­union!

CBS Soaps In Depth - - Ins & Outs -

The ink on Billy and Vic­to­ria’s di­vorce pa­pers on THE YOUNG & THE REST­LESS has long since dried, but the cou­ple re­minded us that when

you have kids to­gether, you will al­ways be con­nected. The duo reunited for son Johnny’s first day of school in a charm­ing scene of spousal sup­port. “I’m glad we’re do­ing this to­gether; it’s nice to be able to

take him to school — you know, the three of us,” Billy said qui­etly, earn­ing a smile from his ex, who added, “I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

As they con­sid­ered the mile­stone of send­ing their son into first grade, it was en­tirely nat­u­ral for them to look back at Johnny’s life — and their own jour­ney. “I never thought we’d have been apart back then,” Billy ad­mit­ted when Vic­to­ria re­called how they adopted the baby from Chelsea. “I al­ways just wanted to give him the pic­ture-per­fect life.”

Un­der­stand­ing glinted in Vic­to­ria’s eyes as she looked at her for­mer hus­band and as­sured him, “Well, it may not be the life we imag­ined, but he’s got two par­ents that adore him. He’s loved. And we are still a fam­ily. That’s all that mat­ters, right?”

The next mo­ment, they revealed just how much of a united front they were when Johnny ex­hib­ited his first-dayof-school jit­ters. Work­ing in tan­dem, they com­forted and teased him out of his fear. “He’s gonna be great,” Billy smiled at Vic­to­ria. “And if there are any is­sues, then we’ll just do our co-parenting thing that we do. It seems to work… we make a pretty good team.”

Yes, they do. And while that state­ment might send a shiver down Phyl­lis’ spine, we love it!

“Johnny, be good,” pleaded his folks.
