Their baby isn’t due until the end of August but THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS star Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea) reports that she and husband Matt Katrosar are just about ready to welcome the new addition to their family! “Yeah, we’re getting there,” she told Soaps In Depth. “We’re just getting everything together now and getting the nursery together. We still have a bunch to do but it’s getting there. It’s getting there for sure!”
While they may still need a few things to make Baby K feel at home, Egan and her husband themselves are all ready to meet their son. “We’re just really excited,” she enthused. “I think new parents, it’s always just an exciting challenge. I have no idea what to expect, so just gonna do our best and keep him happy. I don’t think you can ever be fully mentally prepared.”
Thankfully, if Egan ever needs any help or has any questions, she has plenty of other moms in the Y&R cast as well as friends she made during her run as Annie on ALL MY CHILDREN that she can turn to for advice! “Yeah, so many mom friends that give so much great advice,” the mother-to-be smiled. “And at the end of the day, a lot of my friends’ advice is don’t take anyone else’s advice! Every baby is different. Every parent is different. It can be overwhelming sometimes, all the advice, so sometimes you just kind of have to trust yourself and learn.”
There’s one other thing expectant parents need to get ready for, and that’s what they’re going to call Baby K when he arrives. “We’re pretty sure we have a name,” Egan confided. “yep. We do have a name that we like. We’re not gonna share it ’til he’s born, but… yeah. We’re pretty much settled on it.”
So keep watching Y&R to see how Egan’s maternity leave is written into Chelsea’s storyline and keep checking back at SoapsInDepth.com for updates, especially in August when she shares the first pics of her beautiful baby boy!
