On The Young and the Restless, Hilary really wants to have a baby and has already been inseminated with “mystery” sperm and even interviewed Ravi to see if he wanted to be a dad. But, what if someone else turns up pregnant instead?
Soaps are more compelling when characters are in conflict. So if Hilary (Mishael Morgan) wants to be pregnant, there’s more drama in that not happening.
And what would add to Hilary’s frustration about not being able to be a mom? Seeing her rival Mariah (Camryn Grimes) find out that she’s expecting!
Mariah’s been questioning herself and what she wants in life. Her feelings for Tessa (Cait Fairbanks) caused her to reflect on her goals and dreams. What if Mariah were to have rebound sex with Devon (Bryton James) and then became pregnant!
Or, better yet, what if she already is pregnant and doesn’t even know it? It wasn’t that long ago that she was officially with Devon and Sharon has mentioned that Mariah has been feeling sick lately. She might already have Devon’s bun in the oven, which could send Hilary into the stratosphere with anger.
And who knows? Maybe Hilary AND Mariah could end up pregnant, which can make for quite a rivalry indeed. Just imagine what could happen if their baby showers are the same day. Genoa City would never be the same.
While it’ll be hard to imagine Sharon (Sharon Case) as a grandmother, a Mariah baby storyline is “pregnant” (pun intended) with possibilities!
