‘Young and the Restless’: Zach Tinker & Cait Fairbanks – Real Life Fenmore-Tessa Romance

Young and the Restless spoilers show Fenmore Baldwin (Zach Tinker) back to the CBS soaps soon. And he may have scenes with Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks). But, what some fans may not realize is that Zach Tinker and Cait Fairbanks are in a real-life romance. Naturally, we won’t see Fenmore and Tessa smooching on Y&R since she’s half of the soap’s popular lesbian pair. However, here’s the scoop on when they started dating and what’s up with this exciting new IRL soap pair.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Zach Tinker Back to Soap as Fenmore Baldwin

Knowing that Y&R stars Zach Tinker and gorgeous Cait Fairbanks are boyfriend/girlfriend in real life gives you something to watch for on upcoming episodes. Will their romantic chemistry spill over into any scenes where Tessa Porter’s chatting with Fenmore Baldwin? Often, when actors date behind the scenes, you can still notice the chemistry on the Young and the Restless.

And we know that Fenmore Baldwin’s back for the upcoming Christmas holiday. And while there’s been fewer scenes of Tessa Porter, surely she’ll be around for Christmas scenes with her girlfriend Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes). But, Young and the Restless fans may want to know when this romance began between Zach and Cait. Here’s what we can share about the Y&R pair.

Y&R Actors Went Instagram Official Back in September

Looking at Zack Tinker’s Insta, you can see that it was in mid-September the Young and the Restless actors first publicized their romance. On September 17, Zach Tinker posted a snap of himself in an LA Dodgers hat. Then, Cait Fairbanks commented saying “that’s where my hat is”. A week later, things got more obvious for the Y&R actors.

Because, Zach posted a photo of himself in bed with a woman’s hand “booping” his nose. And Kate chimed in commenting “Mine”. And he answered back that she’s right. Next, in late September came a blurry photo of the two together in Las Vegas. And then another from that trip all dressed up. And it’s all happened no doubt, after they met on Young and the Restless when he was recast as Fenmore Baldwin this time last year.


Young and the Restless Pair Looks Adorable – Are They Getting Serious?

Interestingly, their romance is documented almost strictly on Zach Tinker’s social. In fact, the Young and the Restless actress posted an interesting photo in October. Well into their romance, it showed her at the grocery store. She posed with pork saying she didn’t need a man to bring home the bacon. See above. She’s also posted a caption seeming to diss men saying a vibrator can’t mow the lawn…

If you scan Cait Fairbanks’ social channel, there’s only one photo of Zach Tinker from mid-November. And no couple photos – it’s him alone. So, it’s kind of interesting that all their couple photos are on his channel. But you can see they’re vacationing together as he shared pics from Hawaii. So, the Young and the Restless duo seem serious. And a deleted video indicated family introductions, too.

There’s a now-deleted video from Zach Tinker’s Instagram. It shows they spent Thanksgiving together with family. So, stay tuned for more news on the Cait Fairbanks romance with Zach Tinker. And watch to see if any of their IRL chemistry spills over onto Y&R scenes.
