Young and the Restless star Michelle Stafford, who plays Phyllis Summers, is expecting her first baby! The 43-year-old actress will be buying pink!
After many struggles with fertility treatments and surgeries, artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization and adoption consideration, Stafford ulitmately chose having a baby via surrogate.
Michelle, single, said, “After a three-year journey through hell, I’m elated, ecstatic and feel ultimately lucky to be able to announce I’m expecting my own child via surrogate in December.”
She added, “I never wavered in my desire to be a mother. But I did waiver on aspects of the process. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.”
Michelle will be in the delivery room when her little girl is born. “This entire process has been very, very difficult to do on my own and has made me realize the importance and reason for a partner.
“Dating men and telling them I’m expecting in December is a little different. I know I just need to find someone who wants the same things as I do.”
Hey, once again, on a side note, do you like Phyllis and Nick together? And reminding you, I DO NOT watch stupid soaps. *Cough*
