The Young and the Restless star Melissa Claire Egan is a mom for the second time. The actress shared that she and husband Matt Katrosar welcomed their second child, a bouncing baby boy named Jake Joseph Katrosar on July 14.
Meet Jake Joseph Katrosar! Born 7/14/23. Welcome to the world sweet boy. A few weeks early, but weíre so happy to have you and call you ours and love you forever! pic.twitter.com/p8hXAkhVO0— Melissa Claire Egan (@MClaireEgan) July 15, 2023
Egan shared the news that she was expecting back in February -- and the actress joked that she feared being overshadowed by a megastar's pregnancy reveal just a few days earlier.
"One more funny story for you," Egan said in an Instagram video at the time. "I was going to post about my pregnancy on Monday... and then Rihanna happened at the Super Bowl, and so I was like, 'I can't follow that.' But then my husband is like, 'You're comparing yourself to Rihanna?' And I'm like, 'No. I'm not comparing myself to Rihanna. She's a queen! [But] Rihanna just announced her pregnancy suspended 60 feet in the air at the biggest event -- the world's greatest stage. I can't follow that.'"
Jake joins big brother Caden, who was born August 21, 2021.
Egan joined The Young and the Restless in November 2011 after a lengthy run on All My Children as Annie Chandler, where she made her daytime debut in June 2006. Her work on AMC earned her three Outstanding Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy nominations. She's received two more in the same category for her work on Y&R, as well as two in the Lead Actress field.
Egan has been married to husband Matt Katrosar since 2014.
