Since taking on the role of The Young and the Restless' Chloe Mitchell in 2008, Elizabeth Hendrickson has found love with Greg Rikaart's Kevin Fisher, battled with Melissa Claire Egan's Chelsea Newman, delivered two babies, and played her share of paternity games.

Not only did she fake her own death, but she killed someone who came back from the dead, himself! Hendrickson, who got her start in soaps opposite All My Children's Susan Lucci, has played it all. But nothing could prepare the actress for delivering her baby during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Watch spoke to Elizabeth Hendrickson about the challenges—and the joy—of welcoming her baby girl to the world during this chaotic time.

Watch The Young and the Restless weekdays on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.
