They each love him and now have a claim on his life because of the children they share with him. Now, as they wait for him to decide what he wants for his future, Steffy and Hope will each vow to fight for him on the Thursday, July 12 episode of “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) had officially won Liam (Scott Clifton) back after giving birth to their daughter Kelly, and after a small disruption in their plans to remarry thanks to Bill (Don Diamont), everything seemed back on track for them on the CBS soap. However, a new problem has emerged for their future.

Hope (Annika Noelle), who nearly married Liam again while he and Steffy were separated, has learned that she is now pregnant with his child. He wants to also be a part of that child’s life, and he is torn between which family is the one he actually wants to spend his life with. As a result, both women are in limbo and waiting to find out who he will choose.

However, as they wait, they will also warn one another that they aren’t going to let the other one have him easily, as they both intend to be the woman he builds a real future with. When Hope goes to see Steffy, Liam’s more recent wife-to-be will remind her enemy that she isn’t the only one who has a child with him.

“I have a child with him too, Hope,” she says in a preview clip for the episode.

Hope will likely remind Steffy that she knows they have a kid together, and she wouldn’t dream of separating their family, but she doesn’t intend to just give up on Liam. However, Steffy also refuses to give up.

“Don’t interfere with my family,” she says in the clip. “In my life with Liam and our daughter.”

“The Bold and the Beautiful” airs weekdays at 1L30 p.m. on CBS.
