Days Of Our Lives Updates – Alum Jen Lilley Shares Why She Left DOOL
Talking with People Jen explained why she felt Jackie Grace seemed the perfect name for her newborn baby. Lilley, 37, and her husband Jason Wayne agreed on the name because of their religious beliefs. “Jackie means ‘God will protect her,’ Grace means ‘God will empower her,’ “ shared Jen.
In addition to baby Jackie Grace, the Days Of Our Lives alum and her husband have filled up their house with children. The couple adopted Kayden, 5, and Jeffrey, 3, from foster care in 2019 and 2020. And their daughter Julie is almost 3.
Because of her love for her family, Jen made the difficult decision to leave Days Of Our Lives. At the time, Lilley described the decision as painful. And she shared that portraying Theresa Donovan on Days Of Our Lives provided her with her career highlight. But Jen wanted to spend more time as a foster parent.
Recognizing that fostering children requires consistency and attention, Lilley faced a hard choice. “It was either I was going to do a good job on [Days Of Our Lives] and maybe not give these children the love that they deserve,” she reflected. “Or I was going to be a fantastic foster mom, and just flounder in my acting.” As a result, Jen made the decision to leave Days Of Our Lives. And since then, she has sought to further awareness of foster care.
