Days of Our Lives Actor Greg Rikaart Honors A Great Woman On Mother’s Day: His Mom!
Greg Rikaart took the time to honor a very great woman in his life on Mother’s Day: his mom! And no, we are not talking about Judith Chapman’s character Diane Cooper on Days of Our Lives. Instead, we are talking about his real-life mother Elaine who is also a very special grandmother to Greg’s son.
Sharing a throwback photo of his mom reading a story to his newborn son in 2016, Greg captioned the pic with,
“Happy Mother’s Day to this wonderful mom and grandma.”
Too cute, right? A lot of Greg’s social media fans commented on the photo with, “Happy Mother’s Day Elaine! You’re blessed with the most beautiful children and grandchildren,” along with, “Ahhh… Goodnight Moon. I used to know it by heart, but now the munchkin is 22 and I cant remember it all anymore!”
Elaine even replied to the photo by writing, “Thank you my son and beautiful grandson. It’s an honor to be Mom and Grandma.”
Greg, who is a native New Yorker, told Soap Opera Digest earlier this year that he had a great childhood while growing up in Staten Island. He told the publication that his early years were “happy and sort of uneventful. It was stable and loving. Staten Island is a great place to grow up.” He also said that he was very active in play performances in high school. After he graduated from Villanova, that’s when he headed out West to try his luck in the entertainment industry.
While Greg does sometimes share behind-the-scenes photos of his life as a dad on social media, he is very careful about protecting his son’s privacy. As a matter of fact, the actor is yet to reveal the name of his son to his fans. With that said, what works for him definitely works for us!
