The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Abby Newman-Abbott-Chancellor (Melissa Ordway) will move forward with her plans for a family with Chance Chancellor (Donny Boaz). Although Abby would’ve preferred to carry the baby herself, that’s just not possible.
Abby has received opinions from multiple specialists and knows it isn’t going to happen for her, so she’ll have to proceed to the next step. Since Abby wants to have a baby that’s her own as well as Chance’s, surrogacy is her best option.
Abby and Chance have plenty of money between their filthy rich families, so they could hire any surrogate they wanted – the cream of the crop! However, it seems Abby may want someone she knows and trusts to carry this baby for her.
Abby will undoubtedly have some good reasons when she summons Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) and asks for a massive favor. As CDL previously predicted, Mariah is getting a surrogacy storyline.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say Abby will make a heartfelt pitch and hope Mariah’s willing to carry her baby.
Naturally, Mariah will be stunned by Abby’s request. This isn’t something Mariah will be expecting at all, so she’ll need some time to mull it over. It’s a huge ask, so Mariah will have to weigh her options carefully.
Abby and Mariah have been friends for almost two years now if you’ve really paid attention to what’s on screen. That said, Y&R writers have definitely strengthened Mariah and Abby’s bond in preparation for this story.
Mariah was the one who urged Abby to move past her miscarriage fears, which led to Abby’s decision to start a family with Chance.
Even so, there’s a difference between being someone’s confidant as Mariah has been and serving as her surrogate. This is a major deal, so Mariah will certainly want to talk things over with Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks) before she makes her choice.
Mariah will be uneasy about signing up for this, but Tessa will have an overwhelmingly positive reaction. She’ll probably be reminded of the conversation she recently had with Mariah about how neither one of them had security and love growing up.
Since Mariah knows Abby and Chance could provide that to their child, Tessa may encourage her to give them this gift.
Of course, the decision has to be Mariah’s alone since she’ll be the one carrying the baby. Mariah will do a little more thinking before she reveals her choice to Abby, but it looks like Mariah will soon get on board.
We’ll bring you updates as other Y&R news rolls in. The Young and the Restless spoilers suggest Mariah has quite a journey ahead of her, but the result will hopefully be a brand-new baby boy or girl for Chance and Abby.
