Bill Spencer already has three sons on The Bold & The Beautiful but now it has been revealed that he has a daughter, too! Taking that fateful DNA test with Luna and learning he had another child left Bill completely overwhelmed.

“It just touches something in him,” Don Diamont told Soap Opera Digest. “As much as he loves his boys, and he does, there is just something about having a daughter [that] really moves him, and he’s pretty overcome with emotion about it. It’s hard for him to wrap his head around having a daughter — and not just having a daughter but having one that he sees, to some extent, as made in his own image. He really sees himself in this child, and he sees how she has been affected, as from her own words, by growing up without a dad.”

Poppy may have insisted that it didn’t matter who her daughter’s father was, but when presented with the possibility that it was the wealthy Bill Spencer, she decided that it was time to see if it could be true. Poppy and Bill had already reconnected romantically but now they have become an instant family with Luna, and that changes everything.

“He is more grateful to have this child in his life than he is upset about the years gone by,” Diamont said of Bill’s feelings for Poppy. “So that does bond him to Poppy, certainly. This woman who he was so enamored with when they first met and spent the night together, now this same woman has given him a daughter. So that certainly does create a bond there for him, beyond being just very enamored with who she is as a person.”

Li insisted on doing the DNA test because she wanted to prove that Bill couldn’t possibly be Luna’s father. However, the results surprised her. But is it possible that Li did something to fudge the results to keep the identity of Luna’s real father from ever coming out? Who knows what twists and turns may lie ahead… stay tuned!
