The Bold and the Beautiful continues to add more twists in the saga of Maya Avant (Karla Mosley), the trans woman who has married Rick Forrester (Jacob Young).
After coming back from their honeymoon, the duo known as “Raya” reveals they have discussed wanting a child of their own, and while adoption is one way to go about it, they want a baby that is theirs – part Forrester and part Avant. Enter Maya’s sister, Nicole (Reign Edwards). On Friday’s episode of the CBS soap opera, Maya asks her sister of she would give her the greatest gift, and be the surrogate to carry their child. Nicole is stunned … we fade to black.
On Monday, Maya and Nicole’s on-screen father, played by showstopper Obba Babatude’ (Julius) dishes on the latest plot twist with TV Insider. Just what is conservative dad Julius going to think of this? After all, he bascially was persona non gratis after his rantings at Maya and Rick’s wedding. However, B&B is bringing both Babatunde’ and his on-screem wife Vivienne, played by Anna Maria Horsford back to the canvas, when it will be revealed on next week’s October 22nd that the Avants have relocated to Los Angeles. Let the family tension begin!
When asked what will happen when Julius tries to wrap his head around this surrogate request Maya has laid on to her sister, Babatunde’ responded: “It’s like Jaws. Just when Julius thought it was safe to go back in the water… boom! This is an overwhelming development. The poor guy is, like, ‘Whoa. Wait a minute. You want my little girl to do whaaaat?’ How Julius and Vivienne deal with this is going to be very interesting. And it sure confirms his worst fears about his girls living with these Forresters. ‘See, this is what I was talking about!’ This really helps his argument.”
