Hilary is involved in a storyline with her ex-husband and now baby daddy Devon Hamilton (Bryton James). The two started with a contract for surrogacy and ended up falling in love with each other once again. Devon is even wanting his ex to move in with him. He keeps telling her that it’s for the sake of the baby, but Y&R fans can see that the formerly couple have some serious chemistry between the two. They definitely turn up the heat whenever they are in the same room.

However, it looks like this story is about to come to an abrupt and tragic end. The question is how? Y&R fans know that Devon’s father Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John) is plotting against Hilary, who also happens to be his ex-wife, to keep her away from his son. Now it looks like Neil may get what he wants. The question is will he lose his grandchild in the process?
Obviously, the termination of Mishael’s contract is shocking for Young and The Restless fans. Rest assured that no one is happy to see this talented actress go from the show and the writers can expect to hear from the fans. The powers that be are going to have to make some tough decisions about this character. Are they going to recast Hilary or kill her off? How are they going to move the storyline along? What about the baby?
