Proofread By Nikky
Ridge: How's she doing?
Woman 1: She's moving right along. You've dilated another centimeter.
Woman 1: Your labor is progressing.
Ridge: All right. Come here. Let me help you.
Caroline: And the baby?
Woman 1: Doing just fine.
Caroline: [Sighs] Okay.
Ridge: All right, sit on this ball over here.
Ridge: You're doing great.
Ridge: You're both doing great.
Woman 2: Remember your breathing exercises.
Ridge: That's another contraction right now, I think.
Woman 2: You and Ridge know what to do.
Ridge: Yeah, look at me. Look at me. Hey. Hi.
Ridge: I'm here. I'm right here. I'm gonna be right here. I love you.
Caroline: [Exhales sharply]
Thomas: Uh, Dad and Caroline went upstairs as soon as the midwife and the doula got here.
Wyatt: Well, how far along is she?
Thomas: Uh, she was having contractions, but, I mean, it didn't seem like they were in a rush. They just wanted some privacy, and Dad asked if I would stay down here.
Steffy: Yeah, but they're having a baby. They want privacy. They want it to be personal, you know?
Thomas: Yeah, no, no, no, I know. I -- I wasn't trying to intrude or anything. I think I just -- I got kind of caught up in the excitement of all of it, you know?
Eric: And well you should. It's exciting for all of us, Thomas.
Steffy: Yeah, but when they got married, I mean, they didn't need an audience. They didn't need anyone's approval. They know what feels right and how to do it.
Brooke: Rick! What is so urgent I couldn't finish my call?
Rick: Close the door.
Brooke: What's going on?
Rick: You haven't heard?
Brooke: Heard what?
Rick: Ridge just left. Caroline's in labor.
Brooke: So, Ridge went to the hospital?
Rick: The house. They're having a home birth.
Brooke: R.J. was born at home, too.
Rick: Of course Ridge has to do it there. As if he needs another claim to that place. Yeah, I can already hear him. "This is my house. My child was born here."
Brooke: Rick, I don't think that's important right now.
Rick: What, you think I should let up on Ridge just because he's having a baby? Maya and I are having a family, too. Do you think that changed his attitude towards me? I am so sick of hearing people say that Ridge deserves my respect. Well, he doesn’t. He tricks people. He uses them. He thinks he can take whatever he wants.
Bill: Gang's all here.
Thomas: [Laughs] What were you saying about Ridge and Caroline being super private?
Steffy: Bill is her uncle.
Wyatt: Glad you could make it.
Katie: Of course, of course. We heard from Caroline’s mothers. They're getting on the next flight out. But in the meantime...
Bill: We're here.
Bill: The official Spencer welcoming committee.
Eric: I think Caroline will be very pleased.
Bill: I have no doubt she will. Where is Caroline? I don't hear any screaming, yelling. How are things going?
Ridge: Okay, shh.
Ridge: Just keep breathing. Come on. You got this.
Caroline: Ooh, that one was stronger.
Woman 1: Yeah, your contractions are coming closer together.
Woman 2: It's important to keep changing positions to keep the labor moving.
Ridge: Is the tub ready?
Woman 2: Uh, yeah, we'll keep track of the temperature for you.
Ridge: Thank you.
Caroline: [Groans] Thank you [Exhales sharply]
Ridge: Water birth, huh?
Ridge: Easy and natural -- that's what you wanted.
Ridge: Now, our families are probably downstairs, but they're not coming up here because this experience belongs to us. It's our moment.
Ridge: Just like our wedding.
Ridge: Okay, just keep breathing.
Ridge: All right.
Rick: I know it's supposed to be this beautiful, peaceful thing, but we know why Ridge is having the baby at the house. It's a control issue.
Brooke: Rick, that's not fair.
Rick: It's who he is. He manipulates, Mom.
Brooke: Please, don't! Not today!
Rick: Well, why should today be any different?
Brooke: I hate that Ridge upsets you so much.
Rick: So you're telling me he doesn't upset you, after everything he's put you through -- hurt you, let you down.
Brooke: Yes. Yes, but that's not what I'm thinking about today.
Rick: You're thinking about R.J.
Brooke: Ridge has been a very good father to all of his children. So this baby shouldn't change a thing.
Rick: So, why did you seem thrown when I told you Caroline was in labor?
Brooke: [Scoffs] I was... surprised.
Rick: Your son's father is having a baby with another woman. You don't exactly need to be thrilled.
Brooke: [Scoffs] I know. I know. But I -- I can't tell you -- this pregnancy -- it's really a miracle.
Rick: What do you mean?
Brooke: Ridge had a vasectomy.
Eric: I was thinking about the first time that the Forresters and the Spencers got together. It was decades ago.
Eric: It was Ridge and Caroline’s, aunt Caroline.
Katie: Yeah, they were something.
Eric: She was a woman of unique qualities. She was really wonderful. Stephanie was very fond of her.
Bill: Yeah, everybody -- everybody liked my sister. She was special.
Eric: Caroline's special, too. She's very much like your sister was. She has the same youthful energy, passion in her work, a creativity that's so strong and is a such an attraction for Ridge. That's why it was such a shame when your sister passed away. The connection between our two families could have been lost then, but it wasn't, 'cause here we are, decades later. A Forrester-Spencer baby being born right here in this house -- a bond between our families that's different than anything that's been there before.
Caroline: [Exhales sharply]
Ridge: How's that?
Caroline: It's better.
Woman 1: Since you're at nine centimeters, you're almost there.
Caroline: It's getting closer. [Chuckles]
Ridge: It's gonna be beautiful.
Caroline: [Exhales sharply]
Ridge: You okay?
Caroline: Mm, I'm having a baby. [Laughs]
Ridge: The most natural thing in the world.
Caroline: Mm-hmm. I just want to do everything right.
Woman 1: So far, so good. You've definitely picked the right man to have by your side. He's a good husband and I'm sure a good dad.
Caroline: He is. [Exhales sharply]
Bill: Caroline's baby will be a Forrester. But Steffy and Wyatt's kid will be a Spencer.
Steffy: Uh, okay. What -- what baby?
Wyatt: Don't look at me. I was hoping to drag out the honeymoon phase first.
Katie: Well, that doesn't have to change once you have a baby.
Eric: No, it doesn’t. In fact, having a baby could draw you even closer.
Katie: You know, I know that Ridge and Caroline wanted to keep this low-key, but I brought a bottle of champagne. So who wants a glass?
Eric: Oh, yeah.
Katie: Crack this thing open.
Bill: We will put this on ice and open it after the baby's born.
Eric: I'll get an ice bucket and some glasses.
Steffy: Hey. Is everything okay?
Thomas: [Sighs] Yeah, I --
Steffy: What's going on?
Thomas: You know, Dad and Caroline are having a baby. They're gonna be parents. And you and Wyatt -- you're getting married.
Thomas: What have I been doing? Acting like a jerk.
Steffy: Yeah, okay, you were for a while.
Thomas: You know, you warned me, too. You told me to knock it off, and I just -- I didn't even listen, you know? I couldn't care. I just -- I didn't even think about how it affected other people -- my actions. And I've been thinking about that a lot lately. About life and my choices. And Charlotte and Ivy -- I could have treated them a lot better. You and Dad were right to be so upset with me.
Thomas: Yeah. It really did force me to change and -- and... be less selfish. You know, and a lot more positive.
Steffy: I mean, I say you've definitely been more -- you're more supportive.
Thomas: I'm trying to be.
Thomas: Committed to being that, yeah.
Thomas: Dad and I definitely had our issues when he and Caroline first got together, but... you know, he's really stepped up. He's committed to being there for her, and I'm really happy for them.
Rick: Ridge had a vasectomy?
Brooke: That's just between us. Ridge doesn't want it getting out. Not that it would really matter now, anyway, right?
Rick: He knew that Caroline wanted a baby. Why would he do something like that?
Brooke: No, no, that was when he was in Paris.
Brooke: And then when he came back to L.A., he and Caroline -- they got together, they fell in love, and everything was fine until Caroline said that she wanted to have a baby. Ridge didn't handle that so well. I'm sure he could kick himself for trying to end that relationship.
Rick: Because Caroline wanted to have a child?
Brooke: He didn't want to stop her from having that experience. He realized it was a mistake. I told him to just be up front and honest about it.
Rick: So Caroline didn't know that Ridge had a vasectomy.
Brooke: No, he was gonna have it reversed, and when he went to the doctor, the doctor said that he couldn't have children, that it would be impossible for him to because of some medical condition.
Brooke: Well, that's what Ridge said, so you can imagine my surprise when I found out that Caroline was pregnant.
Rick: Well, the doctor must have been wrong.
Brooke: Ridge got the vasectomy reversed anyway. He wanted to do everything he possibly could to give Caroline a child.
Rick: What about the medical issues?
Brooke: Must have been a false alarm. I mean, obviously. Caroline is pregnant. When you think about it, it's really incredible.
Caroline: [Gasps] [Exhales sharply]
Ridge: Just keep going. You're doing it. You're almost there. You're almost there. I'm so proud of you.
Caroline: [Panting] [Gasps] My water just broke.
Caroline: Yeah. [Chuckles]
Ridge: Our son is coming.
Ridge: He's gonna be strong and beautiful just like his mother.
Caroline: [Laughs] [Exhales sharply]
Woman 1: Okay. Your next contraction...
Woman 1: ...If you're ready, you push.
Ridge: Just keep breathing. You got this.
Caroline: I love you.
Ridge: I love you.
Rick: Why would Ridge keep something like this secret?
Brooke: Honey, a vasectomy is very personal.
Rick: He told you, but not Caroline.
Brooke: Well, yes, at first. He needed somebody to talk to. But he'd be the first to admit that it was a mistake. But hey, it doesn't matter. It all worked out in the end. They're having a baby.
Rick: Once again, Ridge gets his way. The rules don't apply to him. Lying, keeping secrets, whatever it takes. He has to control every situation.
Eric: Well, it's early to toast the baby, but we do have something else to celebrate here.
Bill: Yes, we do. My son's getting married.
Eric: To my beautiful granddaughter.
Katie: Making the Spencer-Forrester connection even stronger.
Eric: Lots of ups and downs along the way, you know? It's hard to imagine a day like this even occurring. Wyatt and Steffy starting a life together and Ridge and Caroline upstairs starting a family together. Fulfilling a dream that Caroline’s aunt didn't live to see.
Bill: I think she'd approve.
Eric: I think she would. I think Ridge's mother would approve, too. A child born of pure love. Healing the past, bringing our families together, giving us a fresh start. Moving us all forward with love and understanding. I'm so proud to be here right now. I'm so happy to share this moment with all of you, in this house where Ridge was raised and where his baby with Caroline is born.
