Congratulations are in order for THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL star Rena Sofer (Quinn), who got engaged to her ex-husband! “What I weekend I’ve had!” she cheered on Instagram. “He asked me again and I said yes! Sanford Bookstaver, I have spent almost 19 years of my life with you and am so happy to spend the rest of my remaining years on this earth by your side. While I don’t recommend divorce as a marriage counseling tool, it sure worked for us! I love you more than anything!” Bookstaver gifted his bride-to-be-again with a gorgeous Cartier love bracelet to commemorate the occasion. Like Sofer said in the hashtags: “#noringnecessary.”
While starring as Lois on ABC sudser GENERAL HOSPITAL, Sofer fell in love with and married her co-star Wally Kurth (Ned) in 1995. They had a daughter, Rosabel, but divorced in 1997. She then married television director and producer Bookstaver in 2003 and they welcomed their daughter, Avalon, in 2005. The couple split in 2016, but have found their way back to each other. “Sometimes you are lucky enough to find the man of your dreams early in your life,” Sofer shared back on Valentine’s Day of 2019. “And sometimes you divorce the man of your dreams after 13 years of marriage. Then, sometimes you are doubly lucky enough to find the man of your dreams all over again! Realizing the love of my life has been there, all the time, for the lat 18 years is the best gift I could have ever hoped to receive.”
All the best to the happy couple for a lifetime of happiness together… or, well, a continued lifetime of happiness together! For more on your favorite B&B stars, keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
