Forget Sarah and Trig Palin. The real miracle baby of the week has to be the newly announced pregnancy of Reva Shayne Lewis Lewis almost-Sampson Spaulding Lewis Cooper Lewis O’Neill on Guiding Light.
Yes, a woman of an advanced age having a baby is unusual, but it’s hardly unheard of. After all, Ada and Rachel on AW both had late in life babies, and GL’s Holly also did. (Note to GL: This might be a good time to bring Holly back for a visit to her old pal Reva. Some of us actually remember who Holly is.)
No, it’s more the fact that Reva has, in the last five years, gone through (a) menopause and (b) a bout with cancer. Women who recover from cancer have babies all the time. But we were led to believe that the menopause was pretty finite.
I’m sure it’s possible and of course, a miracle. But this sort of reminds me of this scene from Soapdish.*
*Which ironically references a storyline from 1973. Kinda like Erica’s abortion that turned out to not be aborted? How coincidental….
