Rick asks if she hasnt heard. Ridge left work. Caroline is in labor. Brooke asks if they are at the hospital. Rick says they are having a home birth. Brooke remembers that RJ was born at home too. Rick thinks it is typical they would have the baby at home. It is another claim to this place. Brooke doesnt think that is important right now. Rick isnt going to change his mind on things just because Ridge is having a baby. He is having a child as well. Yet nothing changes for him. Yet everyone tells him that he needs to give Ridge his respect. He doesnt deserve this. He tricks people and uses them.
Bill and Katie walk into the Forrester mansion. Thomas asks Steffy what she said about them being so private. Steffy reminds him that Bill is her uncle. Wyatt is glad that they could make it. Katie is as well. She heard from Carolines mothers. They are on the next flight out. Until then though Bill says they are here. The official Spencer welcoming committee.

This moment is for them. It is their moment. Just like their wedding. He kisses her. Caroline continues to breathe.
Rick knows this is a beautiful thing. He knows though why Ridge is having the baby at the house. It is a control issue. Brooke doesnt think that is fair. Rick feels that is who he is. Brooke hates that Ridge upsets him so much. Rick is shocked that Brooke isnt upset after all the things that Ridge has done to her. Brooke is but that isnt what she has been thinking about today. Rick assumes she is thinking about RJ. Brooke knows that Ridge has been a good father to all of his children. So this baby shouldnt change a thing. Rick wonders why she didnt seem shocked when he said that Caroline is in labor. Brooke was just surprised. Rick reminds her that her sons father is having a child with another baby. Brooke knows but this pregnancy is really a miracle. Rick asks what she means. Brooke looks around. Brooke explains that Ridge had a vasectomy.
Eric was thinking about the first time the Spencers and the Forresters got together. It was decades ago. It was Ridge and Caroline. Carolines aunt Caroline. Katie remembers how wonderful she was. Eric feels she was a very kind woman. Stephanie was found of her. Bill says that everyone liked his sister. She was special. Eric feels that Caroline (the 2nd) has the same youthful energy that Caroline (the 1st) did. It was such a shame when she passed away. The connection between the two families could have been lost but it wasnt. A Spencer-Forrester baby being born right here. A bond between their families that has never been there before.
Caroline is on all fours on the bed while Ridge holds her waist. The birthing pool gets filled and ready for Caroline. She rocks back and forth as Ridge rubs her shoulders. Caroline is crying and sweating. Ridge kisses and holds her. Caroline sits down in the pool. She feels better. She is nine centimeters away. Caroline is having a baby. Ridge thinks it is the most natural thing in the world. Johann feels that she picked the right man to have at her side. A good husband who will be a good dad. Caroline agrees that he is.
Bill knows that Carolines child will be a Forrester but Steffy and Wyatts kid will be a Spencer. Steffy and Wyatt both seem to jump a little. Steffy asks what babies. Wyatt isnt sure. He thought that the honeymoon had to happen first. Katie doesnt think anything has to change once you have a baby. Eric agrees. A baby can make people even closer. Katie knows that Ridge and Caroline wanted to keep this low key but she brought a bottle of champagne. Bill thinks they will put this on ice and open it once the baby is born. Steffy asks Thomas if everything is ok. Thomas knows that Ridge and Caroline are having a baby. Wyatt is marrying her. He isnt doing anything. He didnt even think about how he was effecting other people. He has been thinking about Charlotte and Ivy. He could have treated them a lot better. Thomas needs to be less selfish. Steffy is glad. Thomas knows he had issues when Ridge first married Caroline. He is happy that this all working out.
Rick screams that Ridge had a vasectomy. Brooke needs him to keep that between them. Ridge doesnt want that getting out. Not that it would really matter anyway. Rick knows that Caroline wanted a baby. He wonders why Ridge would do that. Brooke explains this was when he was in Paris. Then when he came back to LA they got together and fell in love. Everything was fine until Caroline wanted a baby. Brooke told him to be honest but Ridge was unsure. The doctor said that he wasnt going to be able to have a baby. Then she ended up getting pregnant anyway. He wanted to do everything possible for Caroline to be happy. Rick wonders about the medical issues. Brooke guesses it was just a false alarm. It obviously was. Caroline is pregnant. When they think about it. It really is incredible.
Water is poured on Carolines back. She is moaning. Ridge tells her that she is doing. She is so proud of her. Carolines water is broken. Johann says the next contraction she will push. Ridge loves her. Caroline loves him.
Rick asks why Ridge would keep something like this secret. Brooke reminds Rick that a vasectomy is something personal. Rick knows he told her. He didnt tell Caroline though. Brooke knows but is the first to know it was a mistake. It doesnt matter though. He is having a baby. Rick guesses that once again Ridge gets what he wants. He has to control every single situation.
Eric feels that it is too early to toast the baby but they do have something else to celebrate. Bill knows. Wyatt is getting married. Eric adds it is to his beautiful granddaughter. Katie knows it will make the Forrester-Spencer connection even stronger. Eric feels this day is almost unbelievable. Bill thinks that Caroline (the first) would have approved of this. Eric does as well. Stephanie would have also approved. A child born of pure love. Healing the past. Bringing the families together. A fresh start. He is so proud to be here right now. To share a moment together. Ridge was raised here and his baby with Caroline will be born.
