Last week on The Young & the Restless, due to some convoluted blood-test switching, Ashley, played by Eileen Davidson, was pronounced pregnant. Everyone was shocked. But not for the reason you’d think. Ashley’s family was shocked by the news because they didn’t know she was seeing anyone romantically. And not because, having been first spotted in Genoa City in 1982 as a newly minted college graduate, Ashley is presumably 56 (okay, let’s assume she was a great student – 55, 54 tops) years old!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, age is nothing but a number and you’re as young as you feel and as restless as you look (and no one is saying Davidson doesn’t look fantastic), but that doesn’t apply to the ovaries of women over 50! (To underline the point, it is, in fact, Ashley’s grown daughter, Abby, who’s pregnant, not Ashley.)
Of course, in soap-land, even if she were, in fact, pregnant for real, Ashley still wouldn’t rate in the Top 5 Late in Life Pregnancies. Find out what those are at Entertainment Weekly, here!
