The True Story Behind Ridge's Parents On The Bold And The Beautiful
Lifestyle - News
For 14 years, fans of "The Bold and the Beautiful" thought that Ridge Forrester was the eldest son of Stephanie and Eric Forrester. However, Ridge’s true paternity was revealed in a storyline where he needed a blood transfusion and his blood type did not match Eric’s.
Stephanie realized that Ridge’s real father was Massimo Marone, her college sweetheart that she still had a friendship with. While Stephanie initially tried to hide the truth, it inevitably came out, and Ridge eventually came to accept his new father — gaining a half-brother in Nick Marone in the process.
While it was devastating for Ridge and Eric to learn the truth, today Ridge seems to only think of Eric as his father, and they are still close. As of this writing, Eric is also the only parental figure currently in Ridge’s life, as Stephanie passed away in 2012, and Massimo left town in 2006 and never was mentioned again.
