Melissa decided to kick off the month of love a few days early. The brunette beauty shared an Instagram post honoring the men who played Annie and Chelsea’s love interest over the years.

From her Ally Children days, Melissa acknowledged Jacob Young (JR Chandler), Cameron Mathison (Ryan Lavery), David Canary (Adam Chandler), and Aiden Turner (Aidan Devane) as the men who impacted her life and Annie’s. Steve Burton (Dylan McAvoy), Justin Hartley (Adam Newman), Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Burgess Jenkins (Billy Abbott), and Mark Grossman (Adam Newman) made up the Y&R men that Chelsea has been involved with over the years.

There was also a picture of the man who kidnapped Chelsea and was also a paramedic who helped her. Matt Katrosar is Melissa’s real-life husband who appeared on the CBS soap opera a couple of times in day player roles.

“With Valentine’s Day around the corner…I’ve had the pleasure of working with some ?????co-stars between AMC and Y&R! (and lots more wonderful men than these 10 will fit!) (#9 is my personal fave?) Which Annie/Chelsea pairings were your favorite???,” Melissa captioned the Instagram post.
