What if you loved two women and both were the mother of your child, who would you choose to spend your life with?
This is the dilemma faced by The Bold and the Beautiful’s Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton). Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) recently gave birth to baby Kelly and after a rough patch for Liam and Steffy due to his father Bill’s manipulations, the couple reconciled with Liam vowing to make a life with Steffy and their daughter. Unfortunately, poor Hope (Annika Noelle) was left at the altar (literally). Despite her broken heart, Hope decided she would respect Liam’s decision to reunite with Steffy for the sake of his family. But quicker than you can say “the rabbit died,” Hope discovered she was pregnant!
Let the complications begin!
When Hope broke the news to Liam on the Fourth of July (talk about fireworks!), he was shocked but characteristically supportive. Liam viewed the new baby as a blessing and displayed genuine happiness despite the complication it would bring to his life. And Hope assured she wouldn’t pressure him in any way to make a life with she and the baby. Then, Liam told Steffy about Hope’s condition. Although the news came as a surprise, Steffy’s response was that their (hers and Liam’s) family was growing and they had to be there for Hope. But is Steffy wrong to assume that Hope’s pregnancy wouldn’t alter Liam’s plans to remain with she and Kelly? After all, Liam grew up in a broken home where he was raised by a single parent (his mother). Not growing up with a father is something Liam never wanted for his child. So, Liam Spencer is caught between a rock and an even harder place. Hope or Steffy? Whomever he chooses to live with, one of his children won’t have the benefit of a full-time father.
When I posed this question on Twitter immediately following the Friday, July 6 episode of The Bold and The Beautiful, the poll votes were pretty close:
However, that was only with 16 total votes. I’m curious to see whether the outcome would be the same now that a few days have passed. Who do you think Liam should choose to live with as a family, Hope or Steffy?
