Young and Restless actress’ new joy.

Soaps.com is happy to report that former Young and the Restless actress, Vail Bloom, who played Paul William’s (Doug Davidson) onscreen daughter, Heather Stevens, from 2007 – 2010, gave birth to her first child, a girl, on Sunday July 29. Bloom shared a beautiful photo on Instagram to announce the arrival of Charlie Olivia Grace, who weighed in at a healthy 7 lbs 12 oz, with the caption, “You are my everything.”

Bloom announced her pregnancy on Mother’s Day with a photo of her baby bump and the message, “Happy Mother’s Day ? to all the mamas out there. I’ve been waiting to share some very important news, for a very long time…and today seems like the perfect day to tell you all…I am embarking on what I know will become the best and most rewarding journey of my life. Thank you to my very talented, very loving friend @katmonetphoto for loving us and for capturing this beautiful moment, as a #mamatobe.”

In June, Bloom shared photos on social media from her baby shower, which featured delicious cookies, as well as tarot and crystal readings. She enthused, “The other weekend I had the most amazing baby shower I could have ever dreamed up. The only way I can think to describe it is pure magic. Pure transformative magic. I have never felt more supported and loved in my whole life, and I have my friends to thank. The way energy like that can move someone, or the way it moved me and is still carrying me and #babybloom is invaluable to us; a true gift, that I will be forever thankful for. I am in awe and genuine wonderment of how far positive energy, selfless well-intentioned support, and directed feminine energy can take us.”

Finally, in July, Bloom posted one last baby bump photo on Instagram, and mused, “She’s on her way… making her way to her Earthlife ?? #babybloom #pending.”

Bloom did a stint on the reality series Vanderpump Rules after leaving Y&R, and played Madison Hartman on Aspen the Series. She also appeared on the TV series, Castle, and currently has two movie projects in post-production, The Ghost Beyond and Orphan Horse.

Soaps.com congratulates Vail Bloom, and we wish her and her newborn daughter all the best.

She’s on her way… making her way to her Earthlife ?? #babybloom #pending …

The Crystal Shaman. I mean-what “vailbloom” party is complete without a #crystalshaman reading???✨Of course my friends know me well enough to arrange personalized #crystal readings & #healings for everyone—or at least everyone that managed to steal time w/ Colleen #crystals?#bestpartyfavorever #fortify @style_rituals ??? I literally sleep with them next to my bed now ? ~•This was the activity I was least clear on before the shower and the one I was most blown away by after… I can’t really do Colleen @style_rituals justice because it’s hard to contextualize what the experience is like to sit down with her… I hadn’t done any research or website hunting before I met her, and instantly within 2 minutes I knew she was way more than an LA partyfavor or generic crystal giver; she has true intuition and open channels that guide her gently; it’s just that she knows how to operate within a commercial space or more regular audiences…that was an ability that unconsciously made me skeptical and subsequently IMMEDIATELY humbled… I TRULY cannot wait to meet Colleen again and schedule more one-on-one time with her…I’m so thankful to my girls @juliecloutier @missjkantor for introducing me to her ??✨? #reading #healing #groundingenergy #showergift #palosanto #justhangingoutwitheitherher OR #allthosecrystals ??‍♀️ #DEFINITELY #mademefeelbetter ?? Thank you @style_rituals for being part of my babyshower ?& this birth journey.
