The Young and the Restless star Elizabeth Hendrickson is 38 weeks pregnant, and she looks like she could welcome her child at any time. The mother-to-be is expecting a little girl, and Y&R wrote her pregnancy into the storyline. Her on-screen alter ego, Chloe, recently revealed that she and Kevin (Greg Rikaart) are expecting a baby boy.
Hendrickson has shared pictures of herself throughout her pregnancy. In the latest photo, the 40-year-old expectant mom wore a pair of high-waisted black leggings, which she paired with a matching black bralette. The soap opera actress wore her brown hair in layers that fell over her shoulders, and she snapped the pic old-school-selfie style: in a mirror, with a dark curtain serving as the background.
The star of the photograph, though, was Hendrickson’s growing baby bump. She noted that, at this point in her pregnancy, she thought she couldn’t get any bigger — and yet, her stomach has grown even larger. Presumably with about two weeks to go, the actress might experience even more growth before she goes into labor and gives birth. This will be the newlywed’s first child with husband Rob Meder.
The soap star’s fans shared their love of the glimpse into her pregnancy, with more than 3,800 Instagram users hitting the “like” button. Dozens of followers shared positive comments for the actress on the popular social media platform.
“The female body is amazing. That baby will continue to grow until birth. You look wonderful and very beautiful. I am looking forward to seeing a picture of you holding your baby. Keep well,” praised one fan.
“You look wonderful. I am happy for you. I love your character on ‘Y&R,’” a second viewer declared.
“Isn’t it amazing how our bodies can adapt to that little growing bundle?! Mine are grown now, but oh how I still remember the joy of being pregnant,” wrote a third follower.
“Soon, your baby will be your arms!! It’s a wonderful feeling,” a fourth fan replied.
Many people also wondered about Hendrickson’s maternity leave on the show, asking if she will be off-screen for a while after giving birth. The soap films about six weeks ahead, so her break could end up airing in early summer.
In their most recent storyline, Kevin and Chloe found themselves hosting Lauren (Tracey Bregman) and Michael (Christian LeBlanc) as unexpected houseguests during the Genoa City ice storm last week. A shocked Kevin and Chloe walked in on the guests, who had made themselves a bit too comfortable.
