You may have noticed that Passions� Valerie Davis, Crane’s most ambitious personal assistant, has been hiding her belly on camera. Whether with a folder from the office, a bulky robe or a peculiarly placed prop, she and Gwen Winthrop (Liza Huber) have been in pregnancy camouflage for months. As we reported in the fall, the beautiful Daphnee Duplaix Samuel has been expecting a new baby this season. Well, the big day arrived on January 15th in Los Angeles. This is the third son for Daphnee and her husband Ron, joining twins Jaylen and Sebastian, who were born in 2003. His name is Jaxson Ronald Samuel and he weighed in at 7.5 pounds and was 21 inches in length. This is the second birth for a member of the cast in the past month following Liza Huber’s.

Congratulations and all the best from all of us at!
