It had been a whirlwind, exciting, and memorable week for Jessica Collins! The former star of The Young and the Restless took home an Emmy on Sunday for her work as Avery Baily Clark in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.
Following her win, Jessica headed to the Winners Walk area where On-Air On-Soaps had a few moments to chat with her to get her initial reaction to her victory. Jessica shared that she was overcome by seeing Steve Burton (Dylan, Y&R), who was also a nominee, and who she worked so closely with her during her time on the number one CBS Daytime drama soap.
On Wednesday, Collins revealed the news that following her Emmy victory she is now a married lady tying the knot with Michael Cooney. The two share a child together, daughter Jemma who was born in January. Collins posted the big news on Instagram: “Just when I thought the week couldn’t get any better.” “#Mr&Mrs #Hitched.”
