Young & Restless Star’s Off-Screen Love Life Is a *Whole* Lot Less Messy Than On Screen — Meet the Knockout Who’s Keeping It That Way
Noah should look to his portrayer for #relationshipgoals.
The Young and the Restless has dropped Nick and Sharon’s son into quite the predicament. Years after his split from Tessa, Noah has decided that he’s still hung up on her — despite her engagement to his half sister, Mariah.
“Awkward” doesn’t even begin to cover it!
Noah’s family is worried. We’ve expressed our own concerns and even suggested an alternative love interest for the Newman heir. (Read who we have in mind here.) But at least we can take some comfort in knowing that off screen, Rory Gibson is enjoying a love life that’s a whole lot less… complicated.
The actor has been coupled up with model Alicia Ruelas for more than 10 years. (We’re terrible at math, but her anniversary post this past summer helpfully added it up for us.)

This Valentine’s Day, the sweethearts shared a couple of pictures that gave the distinct impression that there life was a beach. “Love you sooo much,” she wrote.

Natives of Bakersfield, Calif., Gibson and Ruelas often make tracks from L.A. “We go back, or try to, at least twice a month,” he told his hometown newspaper just before making his Young & Restless debut. “We bring our dogs, and her parents have a horde of dogs, so there’s 10 to 12, a big doggie parade.”
While you’re here delighting in the couple’s real-life love story, open your heart a little wider as you peruse the below photo gallery of more Young & Restless cast members and their off-screen partners.
<p>The couple that acts together, stays together… at least that’s been the case for Abby’s portrayer and her handsome hubby, who tied the knot back in 2012. The couple — who have two daughters — got to tie the knot all over again when in late 2020, he temporarily stepped into the role of Chance just in time for their alter egos to become man and wife! </p>
<p>While Egan and her spouse — whom she wed back in 2014 — have had the chance to work together on <em>Young & Restless</em>, Katrosar is not actually an actor. He did, however, put in two appearances on the soap on which she plays Chelsea in 2020, playing first her kidnapper and later an EMT! As of August 2021, the pair were expecting their first child.</p> <p> </p>
<p>Burgi, who plays Ashland Locke on <em>Young & Restless</em>, married Liliana Lopez in 2012. He was previously married to Lori Kahn, with whom he has two sons, Samuel and Jack.</p>
<p>Since joining <em>Young & Restless, </em>Morgan’s played both the ill-fated Hilary Curtis Hamilton and the twin sister who never got to know her, Amanda Sinclair. In real life, the beauty has been married to her guy since since 2012. They have two children together.</p>
<p>The handsome guy who plays Smilin’ Jack on <em>Young and Restless</em> married his second wife in 1985. At the time, he was playing <em>All My Children </em>good guy Cliff Warner. They have two children together.</p>
<p>While mixing business and pleasure rarely works out for the residents of Genoa City, the same definitely can’t be said for Nikki’s portrayer and her hubby. Although now supervising producer at <em>Bold & Beautiful, </em>he was serving as executive producer at <em>Young & Restless </em>when first they met. </p>
<p>An added bonus to this pair dating? Even when health and safety protocols meant most Genoa City couples had to declare their love from a safe distance, Sharon (Newman, that is) and Adam were able to share illicit kisses behind the back of her husband, Rey! </p> <p> </p>
<p>“Honestly, I couldn’t do what I do without his support,” Cricket’s longtime portrayer told us of the spouse to whom she’s been wed since 1997. The pair have two children who, as she puts it, “are probably old enough that they don’t need me hovering over them. But they still let me, anyways.” </p> <p> </p>
<p>After dating for five years, the couple tied the knot during a 2001 ceremony in Santa Barbara. “I love her to death,” <a href="https://www.soapsindepth.com/gallery/cbs/the-young-and-the-restless-joshua-morrow-wife-tobe-161105" target="_blank">he told Soaps In Depth</a>, “and I truly don’t deserve her.” While we doubt that’s true, Nick’s portrayer added that “she has given me the four coolest children that I ever could have asked for!” </p>
<p>Get ready, because Billy’s portrayer is about to gush about the beauty who became his bride in 2015 and has since gifted him with two children. “She’s just an amazing person and doesn’t have a selfish bone in her body,” Thompson told <a href="https://www.soapoperadigest.com/content/icymi-jason-thompson-interview-3/" target="_blank">Soap Opera Digest</a>. </p> <p> </p>
<p>It may seem like just yesterday that Kevin’s portrayer exchanged vows with Sudduth, but they actually celebrated their sixth anniverary in 2021. “I wouldn’t have stayed sane this past year without you,” Rikaart told his hubby earlier this year on Instagram. “Well, I’d have gone more insane, I should say.” Together, they have one son, Montgomery, whom they affectionately call Monty. </p> <p> </p>
<p>While Victor’s marriages have been legendarily rocky, Braeden’s own union has lasted more than five decades. And if there’s one thing anyone following him on social media knows, it’s how much he dotes on son Christian Gudegast’s adorable children! </p> <p> </p>
<p>Fans got an up-close and personal look into the homelife of Ashley’s on-again, off-again portrayer and her spouse when Davidson appeared on <em>The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. </em>Married since 2003, they share one son. </p>
<p>Davidson may no longer be playing Paul — much to the consternation of many fans — but he did walk away with one heck of a parting gift: It was on the set of <em>Young & Restless</em> that he met his wife when she was playing Rebecca. Married in 1984, they have two children. </p> <p> </p>
<p>Even as fans were falling hard for the pairing of Devon and Elena, the actors bringing them to life found themselves falling in love. “He is such a calming presence in my life,” she told us last year. “Everyone should have a person like him in their lives!” </p> <p> </p>
<p>Ask Rey’s portrayer the secret to a good marriage and he’ll tell you it’s communication. “Kaitlin and I have learned how to work through issues,” he admitted to Soaps earlier this year. Married since 2012, the couple has two daughters. “I’ve learned never to take anything that comes into your life for granted,” he said.</p> <p> </p>
<p>Mariah’s portrayer — who formerly played the ill-fated Cassie — has maintained a fairly low profile where her personal life is concerned. She <em>did</em>, however, let social media in on the fact that she and her voice-actor beau had marked their first anniversary back in March of 2021. </p>
