As mainstay Eric Forrester, he’s the patriarch of The Bold And The Beautiful, and off-screen, his portrayer, John McCook, is a dad, too! He celebrated Father’s Day by recreating a special moment with his children!
McCook has three kids with wife Laurette McCook (Battlestar Galatica): Jake, Becky, and Molly. When the kids were very little, McCook posed for a shot with the three of them.
Over the years, the children (of course!) grew up. Molly McCook followed in her famous parents’ footsteps and became an actress herself. She appears on Last Man Standing as Mandy, the middle daughter of leads Tim Allen and Nancy Travis, who play Mike and Vanessa Baxter.
You can see in the Instagram post below that McCook (who also has a son, Seth, with his first wife, the late Juliet Prowse) and Jake, Becky, and Molly got together to recreate as the quartet’s original look.
Onscreen, Eric has six children: four with his late wife Stephanie (Susan Flannery) — Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), who is not his biological child; Thorne (Ingo Rademacher, Winsor Harmon), Kristen (Tracy Melchior), and Felicia (Lesli Kay) — and two with his ex-wife Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) — Rick (Jacob Young) and Bridget (Ashley Jones).
Soap Hub wishes McCook and dads everywhere a Happy Father’s Day!
