The Bold and the Beautiful's Jaqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) has a big surprise for her fans: she is a married woman. Wood and fiancÚ Elan Ruspoli slipped away and tied the knot privately, and the exciting occasion is already spreading across social media like wildfire.
"Congratulations to our very own Jaqueline MacInnes Wood," the show tweeted via its official handle once the news broke. "We wish her a lifetime of love and happiness."
"It was very small and casual," Wood told Soap Opera Digest. "We can always do something bigger later, but we thought, 'We love each other, so why wait?'"
Wood and Ruspoli became engaged in November of last year, with the actress exclaiming at the time: "Biggest surprise of my life: I'm engaged! Elan, you are my everything, and I can't wait to begin this new chapter with you. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I love you beyond words. My soulmate."
After Wood announced her engagement to Ruspoli, an agent for Creative Artists Agency in Hollywood, Soap Central inaccurately predicted the couple's wedding would be on par with all of Steffy's grand wedding affairs on B&B, if not better. While Wood might not have flown down the aisle on a trapeze, she seems happy with her choice to keep it simple -- and, as Wood said, there is still time to do something bigger at a later date.
