With A Happy Marriage, Two Kids And Another On The Way, Soap Alum Adrienne Frantz Is In Heaven
Devin Owens

Adrienne Frantz, who played scandal-prone Ambrosia "Amber” Moore on both B&B and Y&R, has packed in a lot during the last 10 years. She kicked off the decade by tying the knot with soap alum Scott Bailey (ex-Sandy, GUIDING LIGHT) who she refers to as her soul mate" — in a mountain-top wedding. "We were friends for five years before we got together, so he knew exactly what he was getting into," she chuckles. “After we kissed for the first time, we were engaged a couple of months later. It was just meant to be."

Though the marriage was going along swimmingly, the couple was dealt some devastating blows when Frantz miscarried twice. "Each time was so heartbreaking,” she sighs. “We wanted to have kids so badly but started to think it wasn't in the cards." Things took a turn for the better after fertility treatments and surgeries, and Frantz and Bailey welcomed a girl on December 1, 2015. “I named her Amélie because I loved the movie [of the same title] and I thought the name was so beautiful," she shares. “Being a mom is the best job by far and I tend to go overboard. I cut my daughter's daily peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with cookie cutters so she has a different shape to eat every day."
