Mia’s new slogan is “fake it till you make it” but how long can The Young and the Restless diva keep up the act? One day push will come to shove (literally) and she’ll have to produce a baby. So, what’s Mia’s plan? Well, we think we have it figured out!
Mia (Noemi Gonzalez) may not have big money to hatch her baby plot but she has cunning and street smarts. She’s already convinced a woman to sell her some urine so it’ll be nothing for Mia to fake an ultrasound or two.
All it’ll take is a little bit of blackmail, some time on the net, and bam, she’ll have everything she needs to pull this off.
However, that only takes care of the pregnancy. What she’ll need is a baby. This will take a big time scam and another pregnant woman. But who? Well, Abby of course!
Abby (Melissa Ordway) may not be expecting as far as we know, but wouldn’t it be a hoot if she actually is? She and Mia could get close going through Abby’s real pregnancy and Mia’s fake one at the same time.
Abby would share all her baby wonder with Mia pretending to feel the same things. It would be gold!
And then, of course, they’d go into labor at the same time. Abby would give birth to Arturo’s (Jason Canela) perfect baby ready for Mia’s picking. She’ll snatch up the little one and blackmail a doc into telling the couple their baby passed away.
Mia wouldn’t have any trouble passing Abby’s baby off as her own. They’d look enough alike since Arturo and Rey (Jordi Vilasuso) are brothers. Even health problems could be passed of as Rosales family medical history.
It’s almost the perfect plan… as long as Mia finds herself a smarmy doctor to get on her side! (And the baby isn’t born with blonde hair and blue eyes.)
