Celebrity Baby Laundry news announces Jacob Young, known to soap opera fans as JR Chandler on All My Children, Rick Forrester on The Bold and The Beautiful, and the second Lucky Spencer on General Hospital posted a cuter than cute picture of himself with one of his three young children on his lap on Instagram today!
Jacob Young And His Wife Christen Young Have Three Children, Luke, Molly and Grace Young
Jacob and his wife Christen have three children, with Luke being the oldest, Molly the middle child, and Grace the youngest, born in 2016. It appears to be Grace whom he has on his lap in the photo of the Instagram post.
He wrote “Family sledding day” and indicates they are somewhere in the state of Utah, undoubtedly in the mountains. He is sitting in a snow throne in a bank of snow (brrrrr!) with little Grace on his lap and she’s all bundled up in a parka and thick mittens and a crocheted cap under her parka hood, but Daddy doesn’t even have a pair of gloves on (brrrr again!) although he also is dressed in a parka and warm clothing otherwise. Perhaps he had been performing an activity before the photo was taken that didn’t work well with all thumbs and he had mittens too instead of gloves so he had to remove them!
