Long lost child.

In a turn of events right out of a soap opera, actor Jack Wagner, who plays Nick on “The Bold and the Beautiful,” has learned he has a 23 year-old daughter in real life that he never knew existed. According to TMZ, the young woman, Carrie, was the product of a fling between Wagner and her mother back in the ’80s. The mother gave Carrie up for adoption and she was raised in New York City with foster parents. After she hired a private investigator to locate her biological parents, she wound up at a Rick Springfield (“General Hospital’s” ex-Noah Drake/Eli Love) concert in Florida being introduced to Jack, her father. Reportedly thrilled, Jack invited Carrie to stay on in Florida and introduced her to the crowd at the next day’s concert. It seems they’ve been inseparable since meeting, and she will be joining him and his sons for Thanksgiving.

Soaps.com is happy for Jack and his daughter – a heart-warming story indeed.
