Ever since she found out that Sheila Carter was the birth mother of her late husband, Dr. John “Finn” Finnegan, and the grandmother to her child, The Bold and the Beautiful Steffy Forrester Finnegan’s world has been turned upside down. But performer Jacqueline MacInnes Wood’s world is very much right side up. And today, she’s celebrating a major milestone.
Happy Birthday, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood
That’s because she was born on April 17, 1987, in Windsor, Ontario, which means that this much-beloved actress is turning 35 years old today! And achieving recognition for her work in commercials for First Choice haircutters, Wood made the decision to relocate to Toronto in order to pursue a career in acting.
Between 2006 and 2008, she appeared in episodes of Runaway, Lovebites, MVP, and Gamer Girlz as well as the TV movie Nightmare at the End of the Hall. In June of 2008, Wood joined the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful.
Her work as Steffy Forrester has resulted in five Daytime Emmy Nominations (2012, 2013, 2018, 2019, and 2021) and two wins – the 2019 and 2021 statuettes for Outstanding Performance by a Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
Wood’s other acting credits include guest appearances on programs such as Anger Management, Castle, 19-2, and South Beach, as well as starring roles in TV movies (Skyrunners, Turn the Beat Around, and Her Husband’s Betrayal). She is also well known for her turn as Olivia Castle in the horror film Final Destination 5.
In 2012, Wood released two popular singles – After Hours and Girl You Knew – and one year later, she served as hostess of Party On, an original reality series that aired on E!
Wood has been married to Elan Ruspoli since July 2018 and together they welcomed their first son in March of 2019 and the second in February of 2021. In her spare time, Wood dedicates herself to spreading awareness about pet rescue organizations.
