In this week's Throwback Thursday Soaps.com takes readers back to 2003 when Kelly Buchanan miscarried her and Kevin's baby, which led to a huge baby switch storyline…

Kelly and Kevin's love story began in 1999 when Kelly was with his brother Joey. Though they tried to fight their feelings, Kelly ended things with Joey and publicly engaged in a relationship with Kevin. They soon moved to Texas and married.

Kevin returned to Llanview in 2003 alone. Not only was it clear his relationship with Kelly was on the rocks, Kevin confirmed as much by admitting Kelly had an affair. Before Kevin could divorce her, Kelly announced that she was pregnant. The baby was in fact Kevin's, who had no idea, months later, that Kelly had miscarried. Not wanting to lose Kevin, Kelly enlisted her brother's (the characters then played by real life brother and sister team Heather and David Tom) help in finding her a baby to pass off as Kevin's.

Kevin quickly fell in love with the baby boy, but when he filed for divorce, and won custody, Kelly realized the baby needed his real mother. She stunned Kevin with the truth and even helped the real mother get her son back, which devastated Kevin.

Do you remember whose baby Kelly tried to pawn off to Kevin as her own? Vote your knowledge in our poll…
