Merry Birthday? THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Annika Noelle (Hope) celebrates her birthday on December 24, a date the actress jokingly admitted isn’t ideal as far as getting the most for one’s birthday bang. “If you know anyone with a Christmas birthday, make sure to give them two separate presents!” she told Soaps In Depth with a laugh. “No, honestly, it’s not the present thing that bugs me. It’s just more that everyone is always home with their families on my birthday, so I never really get to celebrate the actual day with my friends.”
Case in point: Noelle spent her 21st birthday taking advantage of that legit ID in a less-than-outrageous way. “I believe I was at Benihana drinking a Scorpion Bowl with my mom,” she deadpanned. Of course, her mother has her own tradition for celebrating her daughter’s special day. “Without fail,” says the actress, “my mom will look at me and go, ‘You’re the best Christmas present I ever had!’”
