Of course, Ridge will remain Taylor’s most famous partner on The Bold and the Beautiful. But she was also part of other popular pairings. Taylor was involved with Ridge’s brother Thorne Forrester (Ingo Rademacher) off and on for years.

She also married Whip Jones (Rick Hearst) and Prince Omar Rashid (Kabir Bedi), who helped her come back from the dead twice. One of Taylor’s most significant relationships was Nick Marone (Wagner). The couple marries, and Taylor becomes pregnant via in vitro fertilization. Taylor later gives birth to the couple’s son Jack.

However, their family is shattered when it’s discovered that Brooke Logan’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) eggs were accidentally implanted in Taylor. Taylor and Brooke’s rivalry is renewed this time over Nick and Jack. Brooke’s constant presence in her life causes Taylor to start drinking. Taylor and Nick later divorce, and she gives custody of Jack to Brooke.
