She was the one who raised her for months and she has bonded to her the way a mother does bond to her child. However, following the reveal that Phoebe’s adoption wasn’t really valid, Steffy will become distraught as she’s forced to give the little girl up on the Monday, August 12 episode of “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

After learning that Phoebe was really Beth, the baby Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton) thought had died in childbirth, and how she came to be the baby she adopted, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) became emotional on the CBS soap and begged Hope not to take the little girl she loved from the only home she had ever known in her life. Naturally, after being finally reunited with her daughter, Hope refused and insisted that she was taking her home and Steffy couldn’t stop her. Now, as tensions continue to mount between the women, Steffy will be forced to let go of the life she has built as a mother of two.

“Stunned and upset, Steffy can’t believe Phoebe is being taken away from her,” spoilers reveal.

Though he knows it will be painful for his daughter, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) may be the one who finds himself convincing her she needs to be willing to give the baby up, because at the end of the day, while she thought she had gotten Phoebe through legal channels, the entire adoption was, in fact, illegal, and she no longer has any  claim to the baby, because Hope and Liam didn’t willingly sign over their rights to being her parents. It will be a doubly devastating blow for Steffy because she was also seemingly getting Liam back and building a true family with him, but getting back his daughter with Hope will send him back to her once more.

Meanwhile, following Flo’s (Katrina Bowden) confession for her role in the entire plot, Wyatt (Darin Brooks) will find himself being forced to reconcile the mistakes he made in his love life by trusting her and having a relationship with her while also ending his romance with Sally (Courtney Hope) over a far less grievous misdeed. Now, he will find himself admitting to his wrongs as he potentially sees if Sally will forgive him.

“Wyatt tells Sally about Flo’s deceit and apologizes to her,” spoilers state.

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