WE ARE FAMILY
Gil Rodgers returns to Guiding Light as Hawk for the birth of Reva’s baby on Friday, April 3.
Coincidently, twins Chase and Trever Tonon play Reva and Jeffrey’s newborn son also beginning on Friday, April 3.
A fun fact: This is the first of Reva's on-screen children to be born not as a result of Kim Zimmer's real-life pregnancies. Son Max, born on March 19, 1987 led to Marah's being born in June of 1987, and son Jake (ex-Luke; ATWT), born February 14, 1990 prompted Shayne's on-screen birth a few days later. (Dylan and Jonathan were both born off-screen, so they don't count.)
Even Zimmer's oldest child, daughter Rachel, born on June 20, 1982 has a place in soap-opera history. At the time, Zimmer was playing Nola on The Doctors, where she tried to convince Alec Baldwin's Billy that the baby was his, when the father was, in actuality, a drifter played by Zimmer's real-life husband, A.C. Weary!
