The Young and the Restless spoilers has some great news to pass on about a popular Y&R star. As you might know, Elizabeth Hendrickson, who portrays Chloe Mitchell on the CBS soap, is expecting her first child, which will be a baby girl. Her character Chloe is also pregnant, as Elizabeth’s pregnancy has been written into the show.
Well, recently, Elizabeth enjoyed a baby shower with many of her Y&R costars in attendance, as well as many of her former GH costars as well. As you might remember, Elizabeth used to portray Margaux Dawson on General Hospital.
Elizabeth posted a photo of herself on Instagram with Y&R costars Kate Linder (Esther Valentine), Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Lawson), Greg Rikaart (Kevin Fisher), and Michelle Stafford (Phyllis Summers). In the photo, everyone is smiling big and looking happy as they celebrate Elizabeth’s baby on the way.
Along with the picture, Elizabeth wrote: “Beyond thankful for these Fab Four! They really know how to make a Mama to be feel so incredibly loved. I can’t wait to bring my baby girl to set for her to meet her @youngandrestlesscbs extended family. Thank you to all of you who came, sent gifts, texts, notes of encouragement, support, and your love.”
In response to the photo, Melissa Claire Egan replied: “And I want to make it clear I’m only in the middle because you and @gregrikaart had matching outfits!!! I was forced!!!” She’s referring to the fact that both Elizabeth and Greg are wearing floral print of about the same tone. Elizabeth then replied: “Haha @gregrikaart always trying to upstage me.”
Tamara Braun (Kim Nero, GH) posted some photos from the event on her Instagram feed as well. She posted two closeups of herself, Elizabeth, and Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan Ashford, GH), one of which was of them pointing at Elizabeth’s baby bump. Tamara commented: “There’s a baby in there!!! So wonderful to shower Lizzie with love last night. We can’t wait to welcome sweet baby girl to the world! We love you Lizzie!!”
And over on Twitter, Brytni Sarpy (Elena Dawson, Y&R) responded to a fan post about the event, which included a photo of herself, Rebecca Budig (Hayden Barnes, GH), Elizabeth, Briana Nicole Henry, and Tamara Braun. She said: “You guys have NO IDEA how excited I was at this Y&R/GH mashup…such a great night seeing all these amazingly talented women and celebrating @Theehendrickson.”
Finally, Rebecca Budig posted on her Instagram feed about the shower, indicating that Melissa Claire Egan was the person who was responsible for the whole thing. She posted a photo of herself with Melissa and said: “The girl I never get to see…thank you @missyclaireegan for throwing a sweet baby shower for @e.c.hendrickson. LOVE seeing your beautiful face and laughing with you. Great way to start the weekend! Xox.”
Of course, Melissa Claire Egan and Rebecca Budig go way back, as they were costars together on All My Children, playing Annie Novak and Greenlee Smithe, respectively.
It was great seeing all the pictures and well-wishes from Elizabeth’s baby shower, and we wish her and her husband Rob Meder all the best as they prepare for the birth of their baby girl!

33 weeks and still feeling great! I am so thankful for having the most enjoyable pregnancy. I can’t believe we will have her in our arms and finally meet face to face in just several weeks. I will miss her in my belly. Cherishing this time as much as I can. Every time we walk the Venice canals she dances for joy. This will continue to be our early morning walk to see the ocean when she arrives. I can’t wait :) #33weekspregnant #pregnant #pregnantworkout #pregnacy
