Please join us in congratulating THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS alum Kelli Goss and her husband, Justin Wilmers, on the birth of their baby boy! Wade Owen Wilmers was born on July 21 at 8:36 a.m., at 20.5 inches and weighing 7 lbs. 9 oz.
“One week with our Wadey Baby has flown by but has also felt like this is where we were meant to be our entire lives,” Goss shared in a heartfelt Instagram post featuring a gallery of photos of the precious bundle of joy alone and with his parents. “We welcomed our perfect baby boy in the most peaceful, loving, and beautiful way with the most badass and caring nurses and doctors.
“Parenthood feels so good on both of us,” she added, “but the complete shift in our souls and the absolute love we have for our son is truly incredible. We love you so much it hurts, Wade.”
Soap fans remember Goss for her run as Courtney Sloane, an undercover cop who became engaged to Noah Newman before being killed off. After her 2013-2015 stint on Y&R, the actress landed a recurring role on the Netflix series THE RANCH, appeared in episodes of SPEECHLESS and GREY’S ANATOMY, and most recently starred as Vanessa in THE UNITED STATES OF AL. Her husband is a civil defense attorney.
Goss and Wilmers announced their engagement back in July 2020 and tied the knot in September 2021. The actress announced her pregnancy by sharing some baby bump pics on Instagram in May 2022, joking that “our little secret is getting too big to keep” and noting that the baby was due in just a couple of months.
Little Wade is absolutely beautiful, and we can’t wait to see the flood of oncoming baby pics on social media, each cuter than the last! Congratulations!
