Soap World - - CONTENTS -

Liam and Hope find out if it’s a boy or a girl on The Bold and the Beau­ti­ful!

That beau­ti­ful mo­ment when the sono­g­ra­pher or ob­ste­tri­cian re­veals whether it’s a baby boy or girl will be clouded for Hope and Liam by the crazy sit­u­a­tion with their own par­ents! Much to Hope’s dis­may, it’s St­effy, her step­sis­ter, long­time love ri­val and Liam’s ex-wife, who in a heart­beat snuffs out the glow of an­tic­i­pa­tion!

Tak­ing a minute to thank St­effy (Jac­que­line MacInnes Wood) for re­hir­ing Wy­att (Darin Brooks) at For­rester Cre­ations, Hope (An­nika Noelle) is con­fused when she sud­denly snaps at her that she’s not happy – and it’s about Hope’s mother! Dis­pelling Hope’s con­cern that she’s ac­tu­ally up­set be­cause Brooke (Kather­ine Kelly Lang) is still mak­ing waves about the bud­get cuts to the Hope for the Fu­ture col­lec­tion, St­effy bluntly snaps that Brooke is the prob­lem! When­ever she turns around, Brooke’s there, dis­re­spect­ing her mar­riage to her fa­ther!

Nat­u­rally rush­ing to her mum’s de­fence, Hope’s

“Hope is fur­ther out­raged when St­effy re­veals that she’s al­ready told Ridge about his wife’s be­trayal.”

floored when an ag­i­tated St­effy blurts out that Brooke was pas­sion­ately kiss­ing Bill (Don Di­a­mont) in the of­fice just days ago! At first re­ject­ing the very idea her mum would cheat on Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), Hope soon has no choice but to ac­cept the sor­did truth – as St­effy ex­plains she saw the PDA with her own eyes!

“My mother… and Bill

Spencer,” Hope stam­mers, im­me­di­ately blam­ing the preda­tory Bill for putting the moves on her mum. Re­mind­ing Hope not to jump to con­clu­sions, St­effy says that Brooke freely sup­ported Bill through his re­cent cus­tody bat­tle with Katie (Heather Tom) – so it’s clear to her that Brooke could’ve en­cour­aged her ex-hus­band’s ad­vances. In­censed at the as­sault on her mother’s char­ac­ter, Hope is fur­ther out­raged when St­effy re­veals that she’s al­ready told Ridge about his wife’s be­trayal.

In a white-hot fury, Hope storms off to con­front Brooke, anx­ious to get her side of the story to en­sure that St­effy doesn’t make any more trou­ble. She’s done enough dam­age to Brooke and Ridge’s mar­riage al­ready! Calm­ing her daugh­ter down, Brooke ex­plains that she’s patched up her dif­fer­ences with Ridge, declar­ing her loy­alty to and love for him ex­clu­sively, and promis­ing him that Bill will never come be­tween them. She just wants Hope to stop wor­ry­ing about her be­cause she needs to fo­cus on her­self, Liam (Scott Clifton) and the baby.

Feel­ing hap­pier to think that Brooke has re­solved the prob­lem, Hope gets caught up in her baby bub­ble as she and Liam visit Dr Phillips (Robin Givens) for the scan that will tell them the in­fant’s gen­der. They’re on ten­ter­hooks wait­ing for the news and when Phillips fi­nally tells them whether to paint the nurs­ery pink or blue, they’re

ec­static and look to­wards the fu­ture, think­ing about all that lies ahead of them...

Sadly, that joy is ex­tremely short­lived with the dread­ful news that Bill is fight­ing for his life in hospi­tal af­ter a fall he took in a slug­ging with Ridge and Thorne (Ingo Rademacher)! In an ab­so­lute state at the news, Liam rushes to the hospi­tal and goes into Bill’s hospi­tal room, over­come with mixed emo­tions. De­spite their on­go­ing an­i­mos­ity and the fact that he some­times wishes his fa­ther wasn’t around, Liam still loves Bill and is in to­tal shock over what’s hap­pened!

In one ter­ri­fy­ing in­stant, Liam’s gone from that in­cred­i­ble high of learn­ing whether he’s hav­ing a lit­tle prince or princess to star­ing at his own fa­ther’s co­matose, bro­ken body, and won­der­ing whether he’ll live or die! The two con­trast­ing events slam down on Liam as he’s rather bru­tally re­minded of what it truly means to be a par­ent and a child.
