After only learning of the baby’s existence a few days ago, Steffy is officially the adoptive mother of a young infant she has named Phoebe. However, Ridge and Brooke will become suspicious of how quickly the adoption went through and could start asking some questions on the Thursday, Jan. 31 episode of “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) officially signed the papers with Florence (Katrina Bowden) to take “her” baby and adopt her on the CBS soap. However, while the process went smoothly, her father, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) was stunned when he learned the news. Now, after seeing that Taylor (Hunter Tylo) paid $250,000 cash so Steffy could have the baby, Ridge is questioning just how this whole process has happened, and whether or not it’s legal.

“Brooke and Ridge are suspicious of how quickly Steffy’s adoption went through,” spoilers reveal.

Ridge will likely share what happened with Brooke, who will also question the situation. If they decide to investigate, however, they could uncover something they never expected.

What no one except Taylor knows is that the associate who hooked her up with Florence is none other than Reese (Wayne Brady)--and that the baby he and Florence claim is hers, is actually Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam’s (Scott Clifton) daughter Beth, who they believe died in childbirth.

“The Bold and the Beautiful” airs weekdays at 1:30 p.m. EST on CBS.
