The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers for Wednesday, January 23, tease that a stunned Flo (Katrina Bowden) will try to process the terrible story that she’s just heard from Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady) about the baby that he has been keeping in his apartment. Reese admitted that he stole the baby girl after her mother lost consciousness during childbirth and that he then led the mother and her husband to believe that their baby had died.
B&B Spoilers— Flo Shocked At How Low Reese Will Go
Of course, B&B viewers know that the parents in Reese’s story are Hope Spencer (Annika Noelle) and Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) and that the baby girl that Reese has is actually Beth Spencer. Flo doesn’t know Hope or Liam personally, but she’ll still be shocked that Reese would orchestrate such a scheme and lead a couple to believe that their baby died.
On Wednesday’s episode, Flo will confront Reese about what he’s done. She’ll be horrified that her old friend would do something so terrible, and she’ll point out that he’s committing a crime. But Reese will justify his actions. He’ll point out that he’d never do something like this without a very good reason.
Reese will explain that his daughter Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes) is being threatened. He owes $200,000 in gambling debts, and his creditors are demanding that he pay up asap, or else something awful is going to happen to Zoe.

Reese will insist that he needs to adopt the baby to Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) to get the money he needs to pay off his debt and save Zoe from certain harm. He’ll urge Flo to continue to help him with his plan so that Zoe doesn’t get hurt. He’ll argue that it’s the only way to keep his daughter safe.
Flo won’t be happy about the situation, but it looks like she’ll agree to keep on helping Reese. She won’t want to see harm come to his daughter, so she’ll stay on board with his plan and keep pretending to be “mom” to baby Beth.
Bold Spoilers—- Wyatt Questions Steffy’s Adoption Motives

Wyatt will offer a sympathetic ear, but he’ll be shocked when he learns from Liam about Steffy’s adoption opportunity. Liam will explain that Steffy was thinking about adopting before Beth’s death and that an opportunity has suddenly arisen for her to adopt a baby girl.
Wyatt will openly question Steffy’s motivation in wanting to adopt right now. It looks like Wyatt will take issue with the timing of the adoption, given that Hope and Liam have just lost a baby. He’ll worry that it will come off as insensitive to Hope and what she’s going through right now.
But Liam will explain that Steffy wasn’t actively looking to adopt at this time, so it’s not like she purposely set out to hurt him or Hope. He’ll also point out that Steffy actually sought his blessing on the whole thing. Still, Wyatt won’t think it’s such a great idea, but he’ll nevertheless tell Liam that he’ll have his back no matter what.
