The characters Crystal Chappell has played on daytime dramas have all been fiercely devoted to their respective families. Now, the actress, perhaps best known for her run as Carly on Days of our Lives, is announcing some personal news as her family is expanding.
Crystal Chappell’s Big Announcement
“Hey, everybody, it’s Crystal,” Chappell began in a video posted on the Twitter account for her award-winning Web series Venice. “I hope this finds you well. I’m so excited. There’s been so much crazy going on over the last year. Good news is just good news, right?
“This October,” the Daytime Emmy winner reveals, “Michael [Sabatino, ex-Lawrence, DAYS; ex-Chip, Knots Landing] and I are going to be grandparents. We’re super excited. We wish [our son] Jake and [our daughter-in-law] Grace — they’re going to be great parents — all the best.”
The name of the newest family member hasn’t been announced, however, Chappell reveals the new names she and Sabatino will be adopting are, respectively, ‘Gran’ and ‘Pop.’ So, together, we’re Pop and Gran and we’re going on the road,” Chappell deadpans. “We’re going to make up a dance to go with that.”
The actress had one bit of series news to share with her fans. She says It Girls On The Stoop, which stars both her and Hillary B. Smith (ex-Nora, One Life to Live/General Hospital; ex-Margo, As the World Turns) is definitely coming back for a third season!
In addition to her tenures as Carly on DAYS, Chappell is also known for playing Maggie Carpenter on One Life to Live, and Olivia on Guiding Light. The actress won the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for playing GL’s Olivia in 2002.
