The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal that Karla Mosley, who portrays Maya Avant Forrester, revealed this week that she’s pregnant, but what does that mean for her character’s future and how will the B&B writers work around what could be a transgender pregnancy problem? The actress stepped out this past week and proudly showed off her growing baby bump to the public while attending the GLAAD Media Awards (formerly the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation). Congratulations to Karla, but what’s next for Maya?
Karla Mosley Pregnant – But Maya Can’t Be!
It was Soap Digest that broke the official news of Karla Mosley’s pregnancy, but that spawns the question of how it will affect the CBS soap and how will they work around her growing belly bulge? If you’ve been watching B&B for just a year or two, you might be in the dark that Maya is a trans woman. Her character history is that she was born Myron Avant but transitioned and came to LA as Maya Avant.
The truth came out after her little sister Nicole Avant (Reign Edwards) ratted her out. Despite the controversy and Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) splashing headlines about Maya on his press sites and newspapers, she triumphed and got what she wanted. Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) stood by his woman and they married. Awhile later, Nicole carried a baby for Maya and Rick with Nicole providing the egg so that the baby is technically Maya’s niece and also her daughter via adoption.
Since Maya cannot carry a child of her own biologically, that means Karla Mosley’s real-life pregnancy poses a problem for the CBS soap. They’ll have to give her big purses, stand her behind furniture, and put her in blousy dresses. However, other soaps have done this before. Recently, on General Hospital, Emme Rylan’s pregnancy was hidden because her character Lulu Spencer is infertile.
