Updated January 14, 2020: Soaps.com sends our very best to former Days of our Lives and Young and the Restless alum Rachel Kimsey (Meredith Hudson, Mackenzie Browning) who gave birth to a baby girl this month. On January 12, the soap opera alum, who’s married to Matthew Waterson, posted a beautiful photo of mother and daughter, as well as one of baby Sutton and expressed, “This little stunner is here and taking her corner of the world by storm. We are buried in the exhausting first days but Sutton is already showing us her personality and her fiery spirit. She’s going to be a force to be reckoned with and we couldn’t love her more.”
Back on August 29, 2019, we sent well wishes to Days of our Lives and Young and the Restless alum Rachel Kimsey, who is expecting her second child. Kimsey wrote on Instagram, “So, for my birthday, I decided to put in an order for something totally unique and one of a kind – but, you guys, the shipping and handling is terrible! It’s going to take 20 more weeks and I have to carry it myself! Baby Girl #2 arrives in January.”
Kimsey played the crazed Meredith Hudson on Days of our Lives in 2009, who kidnapped Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) and threw him in a river to drown because she blamed him for the death of her sister and his former fiancée Emily. She is also one of four actresses to play the role of Mackenzie Browning on Young and the Restless. Her episodes aired from 2005 until 2006. She is probably best known as a voice actress. She’s voiced the characters of Wonder Woman and Diana Prince in Justice League Actions, and she again voiced Wonder Woman in an episode of Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? She’s lent her talents to a number of popular videogames, including Horizon: Zero Dawn, Days Gone, Far Cry New Dawn, and several from the Call of Duty series.
Kimsey was born in Tustin, California and holds a BFA from Brigham Young University, which she earned in 2000. She also teaches acting at the BGB Studio in North Hollywood, California and coaches actors in the auditioning process. Additionally, she is a trained yoga instructor, a certified personal trainer, a Crossfit coach, a kettlebell specialist, and a life coach. Kimsey is married to fellow voice artist Matthew Waterson, who is the father to her first daughter.
