Melissa Claire Egan has welcomed her second child. While the news is exciting, it does bring up the question of how and when Melissa and Chelsea will be written off the show for her maternity leave.

The Young and the Restless spoilers tease Chelsea accepting Summer’s (Allison Lanier) job offer at MarchettThishis new job may take Chelsea on a trip out of town to explain Melisa’s absence.

Whatever the reason, Y&R fans should expect Melissa to be off-screen soon and for a few months.

The Young and the Restless airs weekdays on CBS.
