Congratulations are in order for daytime alum Rachel Kimsey, who gave birth to daughter Sutton Faith, her second child with husband Matthew Waterson, on Jan. 7. The actress, who soap fans remember as Mac on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS and Meredith on DAYS OF OUR LIVES, shared the happy news on January 12 with an Instagram post featuring a couple snaps of the little angel. “This little stunner is here and taking her corner of the world by storm,” Kimsey wrote. “We are buried in the exhausting first days but Sutton is already showing us her personality and her fiery spirit. She’s going to be a force to be reckoned with and we couldn’t love her more.”
Kimsey and Waterson are already parents to Everly Rian, who will be turning two on March 19. The actress has been doing a lot of voice work recently in her career, playing Wonder Woman in JUSTICE LEAGUE ACTION and performing various characters for videogames. And on Jan. 7, she was hard at work right up until the delivery! “Squeezing in one last session before a tiny human arrives (hopefully),” she shared. “Localizing a really fun game I can’t wait to share!”
And then later that day she tweeted: “I think my water just broke while I was standing in the parking lot at Walgreens. Two women in a car staring at me as my pants started to soak. I guess sometimes it does happen like in the movies.” Thankfully, Kimsey was able to get to the hospital and safely deliver her bundle of joy, though it took nearly a week before she shared the big news publicly.
Best wishes to the entire family on their new addition and we can’t wait to see more beautiful pictures as Sutton grows up! For more on your favorite Y&R stars — past and present — keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
