Congratulations to daytime stars Kelly Kruger and Darin Brooks, who are expecting their first child together! “So excited to finally share this!” the actress shared on Instagram. “Our most important roles to date… Baby Brooks is on the way!”
Kruger, who has appeared as Mac on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS and Eva on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL is thrilled to be pregnant after a year of trying to have a baby. “It still doesn’t feel real aside from the morning sickness, fatigue, crazy changes to my body and the fact that I sobbed on the airplane watching Instant Family — it usually takes a lot to make me cry,” she told People Magazine. “I get so emotional when I think about the fact that I’m growing a little human in my body that’s half me and half Darin. I cry every time I think about it!”
Brooks, who stars as Wyatt on B&B, is excited to be a dad and marveling at his wife’s strength. “Kelly’s been truly amazing through this whole process!” he declared. “She’s been filming and working through it all, which is incredible! And just the strength and energy she has had to be the bearer of this new little life form is inspiring!”
The couple, who tied the knot back in March of 2016, do not yet know the sex of their child, but they plan to find out before they welcome him or her in September. We can’t wait to meet Baby Brooks, too — with parents like these, that is going to be one beautiful baby!
