On-screen, you know that she’s unique in that she’s part Abbott and part Newman. We’re talking about, of course, Abby Newman, the daughter of Victor and Ashley, on The Young And The Restless. But what do you know about her portrayer, Melissa Ordway? Read on to learn five fun facts about the beautiful and talented Ordway!
We don’t hear an accent, but Ordway was born in Atlanta, Georgia. She’s an only child and her parents are John and Christine Ordway. At an early age, she showed interest in performing. One of her first roles was starring in a stage production of Beauty And The Beast!
Abby’s love life may not be the most stable, but off-screen it’s another story. Ordway wed actor/musician/model Justin Gaston (ex-Ben, Days Of Our Lives) on September 22, 2012. The couple has two beautiful daughters, Olivia, 3, and Sophie Jolie, 2.
