Useful information on Steffy Forrester
* Was named for her grandmother Stephanie Forrester.
Current: Executive at Forrester Creations.
Born in 1999, Steffy is the eldest twin by a few minutes to sister Phoebe. When she was two years old, her parents took her on a trip to St. Thomas where they renewed their wedding vows in front of her, her sister and brother Thomas. While there, Steffy fell off a boat and was presumed to have been eaten by a shark. Fortunately she survived, only to be kidnapped by Morgan Dewitt who was obsessed with Ridge. Steffy’s mother, Taylor grew suspicious of Morgan and happily discovered her daughter alive and well in Morgan’s home. Morgan prevented Taylor from leaving with Steffy and held her captive in her basement. However, Ridge figured things out and eventually saved his wife and daughter.
Since then Steffy has sporadically appeared on-screen while rapidly aging in the process. She left Los Angeles to attend school in London, England, but returned home in 2008 at her father’s request. Ridge offered her a job in management at Forrester Creations, but she opted to learn the ropes from the ground floor and took a job in the shipping and receiving department instead.
While working at Forrester, Steffy befriended Marcus Walton who had also recently begun working there. She eventually learned his secret that he was really Donna Logan’s son, but agreed to keep quiet until he and Donna were ready to announce it. Unfortunately, the family found out and exposed the secret, but Donna’s husband and Steffy’s grandfather, Eric accepted the news in stride and welcomed Marcus to the family. Steffy was relieved, but Ridge was still disdainful of Marcus and warned his daughter away from the young man. However, Steffy didn’t listen and continued to date Marcus.
Despite Ridge’s contempt and their divided loyalties when Donna was granted power of attorney instead of a Forrester during Eric’s coma, Marcus and Steffy fell in love. Ridge eventually came around to accepting Steffy’s boyfriend when Marcus was the one to figure out that Eric’s coma was a result of being poisoned.
Steffy then became set on reuniting her parents. She talked to Ridge and Taylor separately trying to remind them of the happy times when they were a family. Ridge explained that their time together had passed, but Taylor was a little more receptive. Taylor decided she did indeed want Ridge back and enlisted Steffy and Thomas to convince Ridge to return to the fold. Despite their best efforts, Ridge remained devoted to Brooke.
Steffy became involved with Rick after Phoebe died tragically, and then moved on to Bill Spencer II as she set out to get Forrester Creations back from him for her family. Once she accomplished this, her sights became set on getting Brooke and Hope out of the company. She went after Hope's boyfriend, Oliver, and even tried to blackmail him.
Steffy wound up going to work overseas for a while after she was blamed for the video of Brooke and Oliver coming to light during a press conference in which she was supposed to make nice with Brooke.
After Steffy returned, she set her sights on Bill Spencer II, deciding that they 'get' each other. They bonded while searching for Brooke and Thomas after a plane crash, and Steffy turned to Bill after Ridge left Taylor at the altar. Steffy was prepared to move in with Bill when he left Katie, but Katie had a heart attack and Bill told Steffy they had no future together.
Steffy next turned her attentions to Bill's son Liam after he saved her from drowning in her bathtub. Even though Liam was engaged to Hope, Steffy befriended him and was there whenever he felt unhappy with Hope. When Hope caught Liam and Steffy sharing a friendly kiss, Hope dumped him. Liam proposed to Steffy immediately and they slept together.
Steffy and Liam's marriage hit the rocks in Cabo San Lucas after she tried to hide the fact that Hope and Thomas were at the same resort. Steffy suffered a head injury in an ATV accident, which enabled Bill to try and keep the marriage going by pretending her life was in danger, but shortly after their return to L.A., Bill's deception was exposed, and Liam left Steffy to be with Hope. Steffy refused to sign annulment papers, and chose to wait out the six-month period before the divorce was final in hopes that Liam would stay with her. Shortly before the waiting period was up, Steffy signed the annulment papers in Aspen to set Liam free. Liam tore them up and kissed her.
Steffy went to Italy for Hope and Liam's wedding as a sign of goodwill, and wound up sharing a loving interlude with Liam when he mistakenly thought Hope left him at the altar. Steffy's hopes were dashed again when Liam married Hope. Back at home, a video of Steffy and Liam in Italy surfaced. Steffy watched it repeatedly, but then deleted it so as not to put Liam's marriage in jeopardy. But she emailed a copy to herself first.
Hope eventually saw the video and insisted on a new, fresh wedding to Liam back in LA. The night before the nuptials, Steffy kidnapped Liam for an evening of fun to show him what life could be like without Hope. Nothing happened between them, but Liam showed up late to his wedding to Hope with dyed hair and a fake tattoo. Hope ended their relationship and Liam turned to Steffy. They made love.
Steffy and Liam decided to fly to Hawaii. They were diverted to Aspen so Bill and Brooke could take the jet to look for Katie and they could watch Liam’s baby brother Will. When they returned to LA, Steffy moved in with Liam. She soon learned she was pregnant, but when she went to tell Liam she caught him kissing Hope. She kept her secret, and demanded Taylor do the same. Steffy allowed Liam to explore his feelings for Hope, but was still surprised when he asked her to move out.
She continued her pregnancy in secret, but when she learned Hope and Liam were to marry, she stopped the ceremony and told Liam about the baby. Liam decided to marry Steffy instead, and she rode up the aisle on a motorcycle in a black gown designed by Eric.
After their Aspen honeymoon they prepped for the baby. Tragically, Steffy lost the baby in a motorcycle accident despite promising Liam she would stop riding. A complication from her D&C left her sterile, but Steffy didn’t tell that to Liam. Instead, she told him she wanted a divorce and moved to Paris. He followed her there a few weeks later and she told him the truth - and that she wanted him to build a life with Hope. But, she wanted a divorce, not an annulment, which meant Liam would have to wait six months to marry Hope.
Steffy ultimately granted the annulment, but requested that Liam make her a tribute video after accidentally seeing the one Liam made for Hope. He agreed, and emailed her the video. Quinn Fuller got a copy of the video and anonymously sent it to Hope in order to cause problems with her and Liam so her son Wyatt could step in.

At Forrester Creations, Ridge, Caroline and Thomas discuss Aly's death. Thomas feels his sister is paying a price. Ridge says it's through no fault of her own. Thomas argues to cover for Steffy, but Ridge isn't changing anything, even temporarily. Thomas will join the design team. He and Ridge spar verbally. Thomas comments that Ridge and Caroline together is 'bizarre'. Caroline asks what's bizarre about it. They assume he thinks Ridge is too old for her. Thomas says it's just kind of trippy. Talk turns to designing. Ridge wants him to show him something. Thomas tells him to make sure he wears his reading glasses and exits. Outside, Steffy wants to be involved in a project, but Liam thinks she's been through a terrible trauma and should take time off. He assures her there was nothing she could have done to prevent Aly's death - she slipped and fell. Steffy says it wasn't that simple. Liam asks what happened and Steffy walks him through it up to Aly attacking her with a tire iron. After that it all happened so fast. Liam assures her it wasn't her fault. Inside, Quinn, Wyatt, and Ivy are working when Thorne appears. He comments on his daughter slipping and hitting her head; to think she would die like that. Ivy looks like she wants to say something. Thorne complains about Ridge at the memorial service. Ivy thinks he was just upset for Steffy. Thorne comments that she's still alive. He still can't fathom that Aly slipped and now she's dead. "Tell me how that happened." Quinn remarks on the senseless death. Ivy and Wyatt tell Thorne that Aly loved him and spoke about him all the time. Thorne needs closure. "There has to be more." Quinn takes him outside. Ivy wonders to Wyatt how she can keep the truth from Thorne - Aly died because Steffy killed her. Wyatt argues that there would be repercussions. Ivy thinks Thorne deserves the truth. They debate about Aly; Wyatt says she was the aggressor and provoked it. Ivy says she only knows what she saw and Steffy lied to the police. She laments not being able to help Aly and bring her back. Wyatt says she's amazing for standing up for Aly, but she has to stop blaming herself. She asks how. Wyatt kisses her. In Ridge's office, Steffy is distracted. Ridge needs her leadership. He warns her not to answer questions from the press and to keep away from them. Thorne appears. Ridge says he's protecting Steffy. Thorne asks what about his daughter. "Who protected Aly?" Ridge says everyone feels terrible - he remembers what it feels like. Thorne doesn't have answers. He thinks Ridge trashed Aly at the memorial. Ridge says he told the family that they missed the signs of mental illness; she was a victim of it and made Steffy one too. Steffy tells Thorne that Aly tried to hit her with her car and attacked her. When she tried to defend herself, Aly slipped and fell. Thorne thinks something else must have happened. "Tell me!"
At the Forrester mansion, Ivy tells Steffy, "Aly died because of you." Steffy wonders if Ivy is implying that she's responsible for what happened to Aly. Ivy replies, "That's exactly what I'm saying." Steffy reminds her of the things in Aly's bedroom and that she tried to run her down and attacked her. Ivy questions Steffy's version that Aly tripped and died. "Is that your story?" Steffy angrily says she did nothing wrong. On the terrace, Wyatt and Liam lament Aly's death and remark on Thorne enduring such tragedy. Liam says he's had to keep reminding Steffy it's not her fault. Wyatt seems surprised. He asks if she's told him everything that happened that night. Liam says, "Everything she remembers." They talk about how none of this would have happened if Aly hadn't gone crazy on Steffy. Wyatt and Liam are both worried about her. Liam reminds Wyatt that Steffy will lean on him. Wyatt is irked that he's implying he would use this to hit on her. Liam knows he wouldn't do that. Wyatt muses that someone could blame Steffy for this. Liam is certain this isn't her fault. They rejoin Steffy and Ivy. Liam wants to speak to Ivy, so Wyatt and Steffy step out. Wyatt figures Liam is breaking up with Ivy. Inside, Ivy can't believe Liam is doing this at her cousin's memorial. She hisses at him to just go ahead and say he wants to be with Steffy. Liam says they've finally been given another chance. Ivy wonders if she was just a time filler and tells him if he wants to be with a woman with no conscience or moral center then good luck. Later, Wyatt tells Ivy he's sorry Liam did this to her today of all days. Ivy says she pushed Steffy, but she just kept lying. She watches the video again and talks about Aly. Wyatt says there was nothing more anyone could have done for Aly. "No one can see this video. Understand? It is way too dangerous."
At Forrester Creations, Caroline tells Ridge she wishes there was something they could do for Thorne. Ridge assures her they'll support him. They embrace as Thomas watches from the doorway. Caroline notices him. Ridge thanks him for being there. Thomas notes it's been hard on Steffy. Caroline hopes she doesn't blame herself. Thomas announces he's decided to move back for good. Ridge thinks it's a little sudden. Thomas gets defensive. Ridge asks if he's abandoning his job and notes they have no executive positions for him there. Thomas doesn't want one - he wants to join the design team. Ridge says the world doesn't work that way, but Thomas reminds him he backed him on the takeover. He says he's seen Caroline's stuff and it's pretty good, but he feels they'd like what he has to offer. Thomas thinks Eric will be thrilled and wants to know if he's in. Ridge agrees. Elsewhere, Liam tells Steffy he feels like a jerk for breaking up with Ivy today. Liam says it got intense and Ivy took shots at her character, but he knows she's right for his life. They kiss. Once alone, Steffy looks at a photo of Aly, cries, and has flashbacks. She thinks of Ivy saying it wasn't an accident.
