    Congratulations girl! All the best to you and your husband on your beautiful little bundle to be! Now, if Lily could just get a piece of this happiness for a little while it would be fantastic!

    Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Hensley on their new bundle of joy to come.

    No word on whether or not the pregnancy will be written into her onscreen storyline

    I laughed when I saw this statement. How is that possible if you know anything about the storyline? I wish it could be though!

    I wondered why she seemed so perky for playing the part of a cancer patient. Too unreal, especially for the part where she was working out. I know from experience with a loved one. Guess her happiness overflowed to her part. Anyway, best of luck.

    Despite knowing the storeyline with Ashley, she was supposedly pregnant and lost the baby after falling down the stairs. So God only knows how the writers could actually bring Christel's pregnancy into the story. They could wrtie that the operation was done on someone else and that she really does still have a uterus and she doesn't have cancer anymore....nothings too far fetched for these writers!

    wouldn't it be great if they wrote in her pregnancy and they had given Lilly the cancer treatments but Dru left her uterus and eggs because she knew how much it meant to Lilly to be pregnant one day? She just didn't say anything in case something went wrong. Maybe Lilly and Cane will end up with 2 babies since Mac is carrying their baby too! Or to really go off the wall Mac's baby will end up being Billy's after all... Ah the twists and turns a soap can take!!

    CONGRATULATIONS CHRISTEL AND HUBBY! Great News and she looks terrific (as if she could look any other way!) She is even more luminous.

    They should REWRITE that monstrosity of a S/L, even Bobby Ewing it, but do something so they can stop bleeding viewers and give Lily and Cane a break. With this Couple, there are so many possibilities--they don't all have to be so extreme (they son't pen annihalation hate for other couples or Characters like they do Lily (except Sharon on occasion).

    Congratulations Christel!
    I just love you and your character so much. I'm so excited
    for you and your husband. I noticed that beautiful
    glow. It's truly shining through on your beautiful face.
    You're going to be a GREAT Mommy!

    Annyhall, I found that statement odd too!!

    That is sooo great she's going to be a mom.I think she'll be a good one.Of course they can't write it into her storyline.They'll cover like they have for Victoria.And let me just say,she looks really good to be 5 months pregnant.Congradulations Christel and Stephen.

    I would like to see them write her pregnancy into the storyline.It would be awesome to see lily go into remission and it turn out she ends up pregnant.
