‘The Young and the Restless’ Mariah Copeland wants a baby

When Mariah agreed to be Abby’s surrogate, The Young and the Restless fans knew there would be trouble. Their prediction was right because Mariah’s been having a tough time letting baby Dominic go. She’s removed herself from Dominic’s life; however, that hasn’t squashed her motherhood instincts.

Mariah’s anxious for her and Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks) to have a baby of their own. Yet, Tessa isn’t on board with the idea.

With Tessa unwilling to change her mind, Mariah will have to resort to other measures to make her dreams of motherhood come true.
