From spanning decades to growing their families, stars’ real-life relationships warm our hearts.
While the love affairs and marriages on Bold & Beautiful can be a little, erm, tumultuous, it’s not typically a case of real-life mirroring art in the love lives of the actors and actresses who play our favorite characters.
Some off-screen marriages span decades, such as Bold & Beautiful’s John McCook’s (Eric), who has been married to his wife Laurette since 1980. The happy couple looked as close as newlyweds when they spent a day with the grandchildren at Disneyland recently.
Still others are young marrieds with growing families, such as Darin Brooks (Wyatt) and Kelly Kruger-Brooks (Eva; Mackenzie, Young & Restless), who just announced they’re expecting their second child together.
Also growing her family is Bold & Beautiful’s Maya, Karla Mosley, and partner John Rogers, who shared the most adorable baby photos after Mosley gave birth to baby girl number two in July.
Another Bold & Beautiful off-screen relationship comes with a plot twist. Rena Sofer gave love a second chance with Sanford Bookstaver, who have two grown daughters and found their way back together after previously parting ways.
