Away from the world of showbiz, The Young And The Restless’ Lauralee Bell likes to stay grounded and “grateful” by taking time away from LA to enjoy family life.

Bell has always put her family first and her Instagram bio even states that although she is an actress, producer and Emmy winner, she is a “mom & wife first.” 

We all know that the Bell family are well-regarded in the daytime television world and Lauralee’s Y&R character, Christine Blair is practically soap royalty. So, let’s take a look at what the actress gets up to when she’s off-canvas…

Lauralee Bell ‘grateful’ for time away from LA life

Lauralee Bell married photographer Scott Martin on 4th October 1997 and ever since then, we have been blessed with some fantastic photoshoots of the soap star.

Bell’s recent Instagram photoshoot taken by her hubby was shot whilst on vacation in Colorado. In the snap, Lauralee can be seen laughing as she gazes into the distance.

The actress is perched against a brick wall in an aqua blue maxi dress, a cameo green overshirt, minimal makeup and her classic tousled blonde hair. To fully embrace nature, the actress is walking barefoot in the grass and is surrounded by trees.

Lauralee has taken a few weeks away from LA to spend some family time “all under one roof making memories.” Whilst in the mountains, Bell has experienced some “inspiring skies and beautiful wildlife” to mark the beginning of August.

In the Instagram caption, Bell shared that she is already dreading her children going back to school, so she encouraged fellow moms and followers to “Enjoy every minute left ❤️.”

Lauralee Bell spends family time in Colorado

Lauralee and Scott renewed their vows earlier this year, in March 2022, and share two children together. They have a son, Christian James Martin, who was born on 17 January 2001 and a daughter, Samantha Lee Martin, born on 28th October 2002.

As their children are growing up so fast and getting busy lives, any family time they have together is precious. This is why Lauralee feels so grateful for their family vacations!

Whilst in Colorado the actress and her family have also taken many walks along “streams and green” as they set out on sunny hikes. Lauralee can be seen sporting an orange and white linen dress called The Pia which is actually designed by her “talented friend” Julie Harrah.

It appears the soap star can’t go anywhere without her furry babies. Bell is a proud dog mom and her Instagram is full of snaps to prove it.

The actor has two yellow lab puppies, and an older yellow labrador, Chelsea. After all, it wouldn’t be family time without the pups!
