Having recently purchased their first home and expecting their first child — a boy — on May 1, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Scott Clifton (Liam) and his wife, Nikki, couldn’t be more excited about the big changes in store for their lives. “I’m sure the actual butterflies and the more emotional part of it is going to sink in next month, when it gets really close and starts to feel really real,” says the actor of impending fatherhood.
Already, the parents-to-be have received some early baby gifts and are hard at work putting together the nursery in their new home, which they’re currently in the midst of renovating.
“Our hands are not idle,” Clifton jokes of the long “to-do” list they need to tackle before the baby arrives, “but don’t get me wrong. With the house and the nursery and the baby on the way, we’re very aware of how privileged we are.” As for how he plans on coping with the anticipated loss of sleep that comes along with a newborn, the actor is taking a “wait and see” approach. “I’ll have to get back to you about that in a few months,” he says with a laugh.
Clifton recently sat down with Soaps In Depth to discuss his exciting new role — fatherhood — including his biggest anxieties about being responsible for a brand new human being. It’s all in the latest issue of our magazine, on sale now!
