Evan Frears (born Christian Maddox) is the father of the late Jordan Ridgeway’s son, David, on Days of our Lives. Now, actor Brock Kelly, who played Evan/Christian, is sharing big personal news in the real-life parenthood department.
DAYS Actor Brock Kelly Becomes A Dad
“After what seemed like an eternal 38 weeks,” Kelly posted on Instagram, “[My wife Adel and I] were finally blessed with our beautiful baby, Adelina Valentina Kelly. Can’t believe I’m a girl dad. I’m more and more excited about this new role with each passing day. Looks like we are going to be those embarrassing PDA parents from the beginning till the end. Mommy and Daddy love you to infinity and beyond, my little Valentina. My most important chapter yet…”
Kelly and Adel, a model and actress, tied the knot back in March 2019. This is the couple’s first child. Well-wishers on Kelly’s Instagram page include former DAYS co-star Paul Telfer (Xander). “Huge congrats guys!!!” Telfer posted, along with a heart emoji.
Michele Maturo, a fitness trainer and pal of Kelly’s, wrote on the actor’s Instagram post, “I always knew you’d be an amazing dad, but starting as a girl dad?” Maturo rhetorically asked. “There’s no better man for the job. This next chapter is the most rewarding and life changing.. welcome to the club, Brock. I love you three with my whole heart.”
Life In Salem
Evan made his debut following DAYS’ highly publicized “time jump” where characters picked up a year after we’d last seen them. Viewers learned that Evan was born Christian Maddox and his biological dad was Orpheus (George DelHoyo). Once Evan’s role in Jordan’s (Chrishell Stause) death (he killed her) came to light, Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal) forced Evan to drive to Statesville to stop Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) from being executed for the crime.
Evan was imprisoned for killing Jordan, but later, he got out and embarked on another reign of terror holding Ciara against her will. He attempted to kill both Ben and Ciara but before he could execute that plan, Evan fell under some debris. He’s back in custody now so it’s always possible — like many great DAYS villains — he could make a comeback and terrorize Salem citizens again. Soap Hub congratulates Kelly and his wife on their new bundle of joy!
