Y&R star Michelle Stafford ‘twinning’ with adorable son
In a recent Instagram snap, Stafford shared a picture of herself cuddled up to little Jameson where the pair look unbelievably similar. Fans and followers took to the comments section gushing over the adorable snap with Y&R co-star Tracey Bregman aka Lauren Fenmore writing “Twins ❤️❤️.”
The mom-son duo look extremely similar facially, the only difference is Jameson has dark hair and ‘coal eyes’ as opposed to inheriting Stafford’s bright blue eyes.
Michelle’s other child, Natalia, is currently 12 years old and can be seen all over Stafford’s Instagram account. The pair can be found making TikTok‘s together or dancing to Harry Styles. In fact, Natalia is a Harry Styles superfan and her Instagram account is full of posts devoted to him.
She is also very athletic as she plays softball, soccer, and basketball along with track and field. In some ways, Natalia has caught the bug for the limelight as she attends dance classes and is also a very good singer. Michelle recently shared an Instagram story of Natalia singing Billie Eilish’s ‘my future’ at a talent show and she absolutely smashed it.
Stafford shares words of motherly wisdom
Recently, Stafford shared a throwback photo of the family in their younger years. She revealed to followers that people always used to tell her to “enjoy this. It goes quickly.” With the busy schedule of a soap actress handling two children, she felt these comments were “actually annoying” as she was “juggling all the time.”
Although she reveals that she “was having a challenging time ‘enjoying it’” She now reveals that they were right about how quickly this period goes by and sometimes she wishes she could “go back and undo some things.”
The actress then went on to reveal what parenthood meant to her, “it is a sublime, gorgeous, heartbreaking experience. I live for these babies. I have to remind myself that I am lucky.” Stafford then acknowledged to fans that life “can get overwhelming and we can forget to be grateful…for just being alive… and healthy.”
To conclude the message she prompted fans and followers to reflect on their outlook, “I’m just reminding myself today. Maybe I’m reminding you too.”
