Dear Soaps,
I watch The Bold and the Beautiful pretty regularly, but have missed some shows this summer. I'm totally confused by the Morgan pregnancy storyline. I knew she asked Ridge to father her child and he refused. Did he change his mind, because now Morgan is pregnant? Why is Ridge acting so surprised about the whole thing? Is she trying to keep her pregnancy a secret? Please shed some light on the situation. — Tracey

Dear Tracey,
Ridge initially refused to be the donor for Morgan, who wants desperately to have his baby. Then, Taylor went out of town to visit her ill father, Jack Hamilton. Sensing a window of opportunity, Morgan forged an email from "Taylor" telling Ridge that it was okay if he acted as the donor. Then, a vague phone message from Taylor led Ridge to believe that she had no problem with him fathering the child through a night of lovemaking. Ridge was duped. Neither he nor Taylor had any idea what Morgan was up to. Recently, Ridge confronted Morgan about her machinations. Morgan hopes to keep anyone else from finding out what's transpired at least until she's well into her second trimester. (MJM)
