Days Of Our Lives Jen Lilley decided to spend one of her last nights before delivering her baby girl out on the town at one of the social events of the summer! There, Soap Hub ran into the expectant mom, who shared some big news about her upcoming bundle of joy!
Lilly, who, in addition to being known as Theresa on DAYS, is also a favorite at the Hallmark Channel, having appeared in multiple productions for Hallmark.
She and her husband, Jason Wayne, decided to attend the network’s summer press tour party in Beverly Hills even though she’s about to give birth to their baby girl! The actress told Soap Hub that she is technically in labor, although, she calls it “early labor.”
“I went on bed rest today so I could come here tonight,” Lilley shared.
Shawn Christian (ex-Daniel), who also appears on the Hallmark Channel, popped by to offer his (TV) medical expertise should Lilley be in need of some assistance! “If things go down, I can deliver,” Christian joked.
“I feel good and my hair and makeup is done for [delivery], which is more than I could have wished for,” Lilley said with a laugh.
“I’m part of the Hallmark family,” Lilley said as to why she came to the Hallmark gala. “I love the Hallmark Channel. I’m so excited to be here. My goal was to be here before [my daughter] is born.”
Lilley’s daughter is going to be named Julie after the actress’ best friend from high school. Although, the actress says that if anyone wants to believe that she’s naming her after Susan Seaforth Hayes’ character on DAYS, well, that’s just fine, too! “I love Susan Seaforth Hayes!” exclaims Lilley.
Soap Hub wishes Lilley all the best as the countdown to welcoming baby Julie continues! Days Of Our Lives airs weekdays on NBC. Check local listings for air times.
