Kristoff St. John (Neil) and Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla) were once magical together on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS. Now the dynamic duo is working together on a series of original films about the tight-knit Chandler family for the UP network. Their next, _ A Baby For Christmas_, premieres Sunday, December 13, at 7 p.m. EST and will move their characters’ romance forward. “I was more than surprised,” St. John admits of learning that he’d be reunited with Rowell in the films. “It had been so long since we took the stage together.”
In the last film, UP’s ratings juggernaut Marry Us For Christmas, Rowell’s character, Stephanie Chandler, was scrambling to plan her daughter’s (Malinda Williams) wedding while trying to maintain the family’s treasured holiday traditions. This year, she’s got a pregnant daughter to look out for, a new romance of her own to balance, and a continued desire to keep their holiday on track. “She’s competing with everyone else’s lives and new interests and circumstances,” Rowell previews, “and also dealing with the digital age… she doesn’t like that.”
