B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Looks Back On Her Whirlwind 2020 As She Prepares To Welcome Baby No. 2
Tom Stacy

JUST THE FACTS

Birthday: April 17

Hails From: Windsor, Ontario, Canada

Husband Material: Wed Hollywood talent agent Elan Ruspoli in July 2018.

Son Up: Welcomed son Rise Harlen on March 4, 2019.

Good As Gold: Took home the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in 2019.

First B&B Air Date: June 4, 2008.

Veteran’s Say: Wood tries to be hands-off with the younger cast members. “I know it sounds so cliché but it is true that we are a big family at B&B. We all help each other wherever and whenever we can. I only offer advice if they ask for it but I’m happy to show new cast members the ropes, introduce them around and be an ally. Although John McCook [Eric] holds the title ‘Official Welcomer of New Cast’. ”

Busy Bee: The actress aims to give her fans a glimpse into her life through social media. “It’s crazy right now because besides having a toddler and working a lot, we’re in the process of moving, so there are a lot of things going on, but there are more fun pictures to come for my Instagram audience.”

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, like so many people across the globe, had big plans for 2020. “At the top of the year, I did a vision board,” she recalls. “I always make them every year.” And though the year may not have turned out exactly as she planned, “It’s pretty cool to look at my vision board now and say that a lot of this has come true,” she says. “A lot of it was just about growing and learning more about myself, and there were a lot of things I got to do by staying at home. The small things are really important to me. It was a tough year for many people, and my heart goes out to so many people, but these times have been a reminder for me to focus on my family as much as I can.”
