CBS The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers document that Scott Clifton (Liam Spencer) posted a wonderful photo of his son Ford, along with a poetic fourth birthday message on Instagram.
Clifton began by writing a series of questions saying, “It’s strange to think you’ll never be three years old again. Was I present? Did I appreciate you? Will I remember? (Will you?) I can feel the past pulling on my attention like gravity, and it’s tempting to mourn even the future: when the day comes that I pick you up and hold you for the last time, will I know it?”
The longtime B&B actor later concluded by saying, “So when the Earth has done its next pirouette around the sun and tomorrow becomes yesterday once more, I’ll remember this moment and think, “I knew.” Happy 4th birthday, Ford. I love you.”

It’s strange to think you’ll never be three years old again. Was I present? Did I appreciate you? Will I remember? (Will you?) I can feel the past pulling on my attention like gravity, and it’s tempting to mourn even the future: when the day comes that I pick you up and hold you for the last time, will I know it? Of course I won’t. And I suppose that’s parenthood—learning, forgetting, and learning again that I have failed to cherish you as perfectly as I want to. But here’s a secret, my son: you are truly exquisite, and there will always be someone who knows it. Always. So when the Earth has done its next pirouette around the sun and tomorrow becomes yesterday once more, I’ll remember this moment and think, “I knew.” Happy 4th birthday, Ford. I love you.
A number of Clifton’s fellow B&B cast members, along with many of his followers, provided warm-hearted responses.
