‘Young and the Restless’: What Happened to Baby Sam? Cane’s Kid Is MIA

Young and the Restless writers seem to forget that Cane Ashby (Daniel Goddard) has a baby, Sam Ashby. The kid seems to have fallen off the face of the Earth. If Genoa City police chief Paul Williams (Doug Davidson) was around, he could issue an amber alert. In fact, it seems like the GCPD needs to launch a mass missing persons investigation. Gloria, Christine, and a host of others, including the baby, are nowhere to be seen. The first place to start asking questions is the writers’ room at Y&R since Mal Young is responsible…

Young and the Restless Spoilers – What Ever Happened to Baby Sam Ashby?

Juliet Helton (Laur Allen) died and after losing his bio-mom, Sam was an important part of the family and storyline for Cane Ashby and Lily Winters (Christel Khalil). Sam Ashby’s birth was November 8, 2017, and this little guy caused all kinds of drama just by being born. So how can Sam be forgotten by The Young and the Restless?

At one time, it was all about baby Sam Ashby, but it looks like he was put down for a nap and they forgot to wake him up. Maybe he’s  hibernating. The little tike is never mentioned by his father. Even his half-siblings, the twins, don’t seem to wonder where their little brother went to. You would think someone in the family would want to know where this baby is.

One Young and the Restless fan asked if maybe Sam is away at boarding school. While in real-time, Sam would have just celebrated his first birthday in November, but this is a soap. They could bring Sam back as a teenager like they did when they SORAS’d the twins who should be less than 10 right now. So when will the kid turn up again – and how old will he be when he does?

Sam Posed a Problem for Lily Winters

Lily raged over Cane Ashby making a baby with another woman. With that said, Lily couldn’t help but bond with the adorable newborn but it didn’t happen for some time. This played out over numerous weeks on Young and the Restless but before she wound up in prison, Lily began to view Sam as her own.

Baby Sam went through a lot just to make it into the world. He was born prematurely as his mother died on the operating table. He wasn’t in the best of health and things were touch and go for baby Sam for a while. But right now, he should be a happy healthy one year old. Instead, he’s a missing person. Perhaps fans should check Genoa City milk cartons to see if the kid’s pic is there.

Everyone Loved Baby Sam

Now-departed Hilary Curtis (Mishael Morgan) adored Sam. She not only fell in love with this baby but he also inspired her to have one of her own on The Young and the Restless. Initially, Charlie Ashby (Noah Alexander Gerry) and Mattie Ashby (Lexie Stevenson) were not thrilled with their dad’s new baby, but they also grew to love their younger sibling.

At the time we last saw Sam, Cane Ashby was facing life as a single dad while Lily Winters was remanded to prison for the vehicular homicide of Hilary and her unborn child. Yet despite him being the sole adult in the house, little Sam is never in his father’s arms. Granted Cane himself hasn’t had a lot of scenes lately, but still, the kid is MIA. So where is the baby and when will he be back?

Young and the Restless – Where Could Baby Sam Ashby Be?

Y&R fans are speculating with a lot of humor about where the baby went. Maybe Gloria Bardwell (Judith Chapman) was babysitting the boy when she also went missing. Perhaps Sam was hanging out with The Mustache when he skipped town to avoid the cops. Or it could be that Cane Ashby left the boy with a sitter and simply forgot.

After all, Cane Ashby was partying on Young and the Restless and got drunk and sloppy at Devon’s holiday party. That led to an unlikely kiss with Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle). But where was his youngest child was Cane was falling off the wagon and boozing himself into more bad choices? Cane’s excessive drinking was how he wound up with baby Sam…

As the new year begins, fans of Y&R jumped on the message boards to scold the soap’s writers. Viewers want to know what’s up with that. More importantly, they want to know – where is baby Sam? Watch Y&R daily and maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of little Sam…
