The Young And The Restless spoilers (Y&R) announce that Scott Elrod is going be a dad for the first time – his girlfriend, Vanessa Vazart is pregnant with Scott’s baby! Y&R recently revealed that Scott Elrod’s character Joe Clark is OUT and won’t be returning to the CBS soap. The actor will most likely have his hands full anyways, and he may not have had much time for the daytime drama (and Grey’s Anatomy), because he has a new baby on the way!
The Young And The Restless star took to Instagram and announced that his girlfriend Vanessa was pregnant with their first child together. Elrod posted a photo of a conversation he had with his mother via text message, in which he shared the exciting news.
Elrod captioned the photo:
“Sending love to everyone who has influenced me as it has added to who I have become as my #1@vanessa_vazart and I have been blessed with a little peanut and now I get the greatest give of all which is to channel that love to him. Mom Dad x2 I love you and thank you!@vanessa_vazart U r are my mirror image I love you.
Scott’s mom was overjoyed by the news, and their conversation about her new grandbaby was so cute! She joked that Scott had made her wait WAY too long before he made her a grandmother, she is apparently 66 years old.
She went on to praise Scott’s girlfriend Vanessa, and she texted, “Honey I have zero reservations about you being a great daddy. Vanessa is an amazing mama so no negatives there. Just amazing my baby boy is going to be a daddy. Love you so much.”
Scott Elrod’s character Joe Clark was recently rushed off the ‘Y&R’ canvas and sent to prison for a 6 year sentence. Last week Soap Opera digest confirmed that he won’t be returning. However, he has already found new work and is starring on Grey’s Anatomy.
There is no news yet on whether it was TPTB’s decision to write out Scott’s character or the actor himself’s idea. But, considering he has a baby on the way – it seems logical that he was scaling back on work. Are you excited for Scott and Vanessa?
