“I’m so overwhelmed.”

The celebration continues for The Young and the Restless vet Tracey E. Bregman, who on Wednesday, January 25, marked 40 years playing Lauren Fenmore on the CBS soap. Her co-star, Christian LeBlanc, who happens to play her character’s onscreen husband Michael, recently presented the actress with something very special… a Daytime Emmy Award. But it wasn’t just any Daytime Emmy Award…

During her appearance on CBS’ The Talk, co-host Natalie Morales recalled how Bregman had lost the Daytime Emmy Award she won back in 1985 for Outstanding Ingenue (Younger Actress) in a Drama Series when her home burned to the ground in 2018, as a result of the Woolsey Fire. Bregman clearly became emotional over the loss and when LeBlanc walked out on the stage and presented her with a box containing a replacement statuette, she was moved to tears.
