The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that some of Chloe’s (Elizabeth Hendrickson) secrets will stay hidden for a while. Of course, a big one that’s on everyone’s mind is Bella’s (Cali May Kinder) paternity. We’re all anxious to find out who the “baby daddy” is, but we’ll just have to be patient.
Kevin (Greg Rikaart) demanded a paternity test, but that doesn’t mean everything will be cleared up right away. You didn’t think The Young and the Restless was going to make it that easy, did you? Instead, we’re in for an intriguing storyline filled with many twists and turns.
In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, a few hints were dropped about all of the baby drama. Chuck Pratt, Y&R’s head writer, suggested that Chloe is focused on doing what she feels is in Bella’s best interest. She believes all of her schemes and lies are for Bella’s sake.
“Bella is Chloe’s reason for doing everything,” said Pratt. “Her father will remain a mystery for some time. Chloe is a woman of secrets – and that will just be one of them.” No matter what the latest paternity results say, The Young and the Restless watchers will have to wait for genuine confirmation.
Billy (Jason Thompson) and Kevin are the top contenders here. We’re not buying the random guy in California stuff. Y&R undoubtedly wants Bella tied to a male character who’s actually part of the show.
We picked up some other fun facts about Bella from this SOD interview. It seems a great deal of thought when into the name of Y&R’s new cutie. Angelica McDaniel, the head of CBS daytime, noted that they wanted something that was both hip and nostalgic.
“In the case of Chloe’s baby, we needed something a young, trendy mother would pick for her little girl,” said McDaniel. “We were also approaching the 11,000th episode, a milestone made possible thanks to the vision of Bill Sr. and Lee Bell, so ‘Bella’ was born as a tribute to our origins…”
Most Young and the Restless fans would agree that the name perfectly suits the character played by the adorable Cali May Kinder. She’s quite the scene-stealer! Bella is sure to be a heartbreaker by the time she’s a moody teenager. With SORASing, it’s probably not as far as you might think!
American soaps love to skip the preteen years. It seems they opt to move straight into teen angst. We can certainly see Connor (Gunner and Ryder Gadbois) and Bella as prom royalty. That could create an amusing mess down the road. In light of Chloe and Adam’s (Justin Hartley) history, their children would be the ultimate star-crossed lovers.
For now, we’ll enjoy watching these tots play while their parents take care of all the mischief. As Pratt mentioned, Bella’s paternity is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to secrets. Adam and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) already suspect that Chloe helped Victor (Eric Braeden) with the setup.
Will Chloe manage to get off scot-free for her crimes? Will Victor be able to get the missing journal entries back? Can Adam and Chelsea stick together through the chaos? We’ll give you updates as more news emerges. Stay tuned and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest Young and the Restless spoilers, updates and news.
