Katherine Kelly Lang
If there’s something for sure, it’s that “The Bold and The Beautiful” wouldn’t be the same without our favorite heroine Brooke Logan Forrester, played by Katherine Kelly Lang since the show’s inception in 1987. Regarding her personal life, Katherine is currently dating the personal trainer Dominique Zoida, whom she met in 2013, and has described as the love of her life.

Prior to Zoida, Katherine had been married to Skott Snider from 1989 to 1995, having welcomed two sons Jeremy and Julian. Then in 1997, she married Alex D’Andrea, with whom she welcomed daughter Zoe Katrina, but the marriage came to an end in 2012.
Joining the show in 1987, John McCook has been playing the role of fan favorite but controversial Eric Forrester, former head of Forrester Creations. Unlike this character’s tumultuous on-screen romances, John has been in a stable marriage with actress Laurette Spang, whom he married in 1980, and has since welcomed children Jake Thomas, Rebecca Jeanne and Molly Jane.
John is also the father of Seth, whom he welcomed with his second wife Juliet Prowse in 1972. Prior to Prowse, John had been married to Marilyn McPherson, a former TV make-up artist.
Although his character, Ridge Forrester has been in “The Bold and The Beautiful” since its inception, Thorsten Kaye only took the role until 2013, following actor Ronn Moss’s departure from the show.
Despite playing the controverted Ridge, Thorsten is a beloved actor for playing other characters in series such as “All My Children” and “One Life to Live”. On the latter’s set he met actress Susan Haskell, who played the role of Dr. Margaret Saybrooke. The pair married a couple of years later, despite Thorsten describing himself as ‘not a church guy’, though the exact place and date of their wedding is unknown.
The couple is still happily together nowadays, and in the 2000s welcomed children McKenna and Marlowe.
While Matthew Atkinson only took the role of Thomas Forrester in 2019, he has done a good job at gaining the approval of “The Bold and The Beautiful” audience. Prior to the series, he has already played roles in “One Tree Hill” and “Drop Dead Diva”, besides appearing in the award winning film “The Blind Side” in 2009.
Matthew has been dating actress Karissa Staples since 2015, though they keep their relationship rather private.
Happy Birthday to this fun, talented so and so! Miss ya Britt, hope this day next year we can party like it’s 1999, or 2019…or anything but 2020.

Having started her acting career in her teens, it’s no wonder that “The Bold and The Beautiful” wanted Katrina Bowden for the role of Flo Fulton, which she also played during a guest appearance in the sister soap opera “The Young and the Restless”. Other recognized roles of Katrina are as Cerie in “30 Rock”, and in several music videos.
Katrina’s most commented public romantic relationship was with Armor For Sleep’s singer and guitarist Ben Jorgensen. They married in a private ceremony in Brooklyn in 2013, but divorced in 2020 for unknown reasons.
Nowadays Katrina is dating Adam Taylor, bassist of Hawaiian band Iration.
In 2013, Daron Brooks joined the cast of “The Young and The Beautiful” as Wyatt Spencer, son of Bill Spencer, Jr. and Quinn Fuller.
Darin started dating fellow actress Kelly Kruger in 2010, finally tying the knot six years later. In September 2019 the couple welcomed their first daughter, Everleigh Jolie, who came as a blessing for the couple after trying to conceive for a couple of years: ‘We’ve waited so long to meet our little girl and we can’t believe she’s finally here! She’s everything!’, as Kelly told People. Later in February 2022, they welcomed Gemma Wynter, the second addition to their little happy family.
Although her role as Sheila Carter was originally played by another actress in its inception in 1990, Kimberlin Brown has successfully made the character her own since assuming the role two years later.
She has been married to Gary Pelzer since 1991 and are the proud parents of Alexes Marie and Nicholas. The couple owns an avocado farm and several businesses in San Diego, where they reside.
Since his debut as an actor in the 1990s, Scott Clifton has appeared in several renowned series such as “One Life to Live” and “General Hospital”, besides several TV commercials. Nonetheless, his role as Liam Spencer in “The Bold And The Beautiful” is his most recognized to date, having won two Daytime Emmy Awards for it so far.
Though details about their relationship are unknown, in October 2012, he married his long-time partner Nicole Lampson, in a Los Angeles’ ceremony attended by the show’s co-stars. The young family welcomed their son Ford Robert in 2016, and currently live in California.
The character of Taylor Hayes has been played by several actresses since the role’s introduction in 1990, with Krista Allen being the most recent actress to portray the part. However, Krista’s career on TV started in the mid-1990s with a role in “Days of Our Lives”, and has extended to several other projects on the small and big screens.
In 1996, Krista married producer Justin Moritt, welcoming their first and only son Jacob Nolan in 1997, two years before divorcing. In 2002, she met George Clooney on the set of “Confessions of a Dangerous Minds”, starting a relationship which lasted until 2004.
Though Clooney quickly started dating model Lisa Snowdon soon after the break-up, the two years long relationship was on and off, eventually leading to a brief reconciliation with Krista in 2006. The couple then broke-up for good, and in late 2010 Krista married British singer Mams Taylor, though the marriage was short-lived, as she filed for divorce in April 2011.

In 2015 Krista started dating actor Nathan Fillion, as an insider told Us Weekly back then: ‘They met a few months ago through friends, and it’s going really well. He’s met her son and they get along’. However, it’s unknown if the couple is still together, as pics of each on their respective social media are scarce nowadays.
Besides playing the role of Bill Spencer Jr. in “The Bold and The Beautiful”, Don Diamont is also known for his characters in soap operas such as “Days of Our Lives”, “The Young and the Restless”, and “Unbecoming Age”.
Unlike all the drama surrounding his small screen characters, the truth is that Don’s romantic life is quite tranquil. He married for the first time in 1994 to Rachel Braun, an entrepreneur with whom he welcomed four children named Alexander, Luca, Sasha and Lauren.
Although his divorce from Rachel was officialized in 2002, two years prior he had welcomed two boys with girlfriend Cindy Ambuehl. The couple was together for several years before finally tying the knot in 2012, and they are still going strongly.
While Heather Tom’s portrayal of Katie Logan is truly memorable, so are the several other roles she’s played on TV during her decades long acting career. Her appearances in “The Young and the Restless”, “One Life to Live”, and “The Bold And The Beautiful” have gained her six Daytime Emmys, and over 20 nominations for renowned TV awards.
Just like her highly successful career on TV, Heather’s personal life is just as stable. Since 2011, she’s been married to James Achor, actor and designer with whom she’d been in a relationship for 15 years before finally tying the knot. In 2012 the couple welcomed son Zane Alexander, who appears in a small child role in “The Bold and The Beautiful”. Heather and James own the interior design business Tight Rope Designs, featured in HGTV’s show “Renovation Unscripted”.
Besides her character Donna Logan in “The Bold and The Beautiful”, Jennifer Gareis portrays the long-running character Grace Turner in “The Young And The Restless”. Jennifer has also appeared in several series and movies, including her role of Tina in “Miss Congeniality”, starring Sandra Bullock.
Since 2010, Jennifer has been married to Bobby Ghassemieh, with whom she’s welcomed their children Gavin Blaze and Sophia Rose. Though not a lot is known about the couple’s love story or Bobby’s profession, the Gareis family appears to be the happiest on their social media.
Aaron D. Spears
While Aaron D. Spears’ role as Justin Barber in “The Bold and The Beautiful” is one of his most popular to date, he’s appeared in several other series, including “NCIS” and “General Hospital”.
Regardless of his popularity, Aaron has a preference for secrecy, keeping most details about his personal life unrevealed. That being said, it’s known that he’s married to Estela Lopez-Spears, with whom he’s welcomed four daughters and a son.
Besides his role as Deacon Sharpe in “The Bold and The Beautiful”, Sean Kanan has had several other roles on TV and in films to be proud of. He also owns a Palm Springs’ Walk Of Fame star, and in 2021 was rewarded with a Daytime Emmy Award.
Sean is married to Michele Vega, producer and writer of series such as “Studio City”. The pair tied the knot in 2012, and though so far they haven’t welcomed any children of their own, both adopted each other’s offspring from previous relationships, including Sean’s only daughter, and Michele’s four kids.
Before Michelle, Sean was married to Athena Ubach, but their marriage only lasted two years before filing for divorce in 2001. Other famous former girlfriends of Sean include Adriana Verdirosi, Kim Matuka, Gladise Jiminez, Ashley Jones and Danielle Delaney.
You surely know Anikka Noelle from her characters in the series’ “Chasing Life” and “Venice The Series”, besides her highly successful portrayal of Hope Logan in “The Bold and The Beautiful”.
While Annika’s successful as an actress and model, she keeps details about her personal life in secrecy. It’s known that in 2021 she became engaged to her long-time boyfriend, but whose identity is still unknown. In an interview with Glamour.com later that year, Annika confessed to have suffered two miscarriages: ‘I was told the chances of us experiencing another pregnancy loss were slim to none, but sadly, our second attempt unraveled into sorrow and heartache as well’, she confessed.
Although Annika had been previously dating music producer Zach Fisher, there’s no way to know yet if he’s her current fiancé, or if she’s already moved on.
Jacqueline MacInnes Wood
There’s nothing like a beautiful, smart and ruthless heiress to conquer the hearts of an audience and Steffy Forrester proves that well. However, behind the character there is Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, who besides being a Daytime Emmy Award winner, and a model, is also a social activist.
In 2018 Jacqueline married talent agent Elan Ruspoli, though the ceremony was secret, and even described as an elopement by media: ‘It was very small and casual. We can always do something bigger later, but we thought, ‘We love each other, so why wait?’,’ she told Soap Opera Digest.

Since her marriage, Jacqueline and her husband have welcomed three sons, the youngest born in May 2022.
It isn’t hard for the audience to love Dr. John Finnegan in “The Bold and The Beautiful”, so it always comes as a surprise to know the character’s actor, Tanner Novlan had a hard path before getting his big chance on TV. Born and raised on a farm in Saskatchewan, Canada, Tanner moved to the US alone when 18 years old, with the big dream of becoming an actor, first being cast in support roles in series such as “Bones” and “Modern Family”.
Still an up-and-coming actor, Tanner’s career is going as well as his private life. In 2015 he married Kayla Ewell, who also appeared in “The Bold and The Beautiful”, and in 2019 the couple welcomed daughter Poppy Marie, followed two years later by son Jones Douglas.

Despite appearing in “Guiding Light”, Lawrence Saint-Victor is mostly recognized for his role as the Forrester family’s lawyer Carter Walton in “The Bold And The Beautiful”.
While Lawrence unfortunately keeps most of his personal life a secret, it’s known that he’s been married to Shay Flake since 2005, welcoming their only son Christian.
All in all, the stars from “The Bold And The Beautiful” seem to be doing well when it comes to their private lives, which is quite a relief considering the high amount of drama they have to face on set.
