At the cliff house, Steffy looked at the sonogram picture of the baby and thanked Liam for "driving us home." Liam smiled and said he'd had precious cargo. Steffy was convinced the baby liked her name, Kelly Spencer, and she and Liam smiled. She reminded Liam of the next appointment, and he said he had it on his calendar. Liam said he had to leave, but Steffy asked him to stay for a few minutes.

Liam responded that he couldn't be there because his dad had been there, and it was the same place where his father had proposed to Steffy. It bothered him. Steffy understood but said Bill kept showing up and had taken the painting off the wall. Liam said the memories were too painful. He said that they had fought in that room, and it was where Steffy had decided to leave Liam and go to the guesthouse where she had been with Bill.

Steffy wanted Liam to forget about Bill. She owned the house, and it was where she wanted to raise their baby and make a home for their family. "You're the only man in my life, Liam. I love you. Don't marry Hope," she said.

Liam didn't want to argue. Neither did Steffy. But she felt there was a lot she had to say. Liam wanted to focus on Kelly and her health. Steffy agreed and was happy they'd chosen his mother's first name "just like me -- I know that family connection," Steffy said. Liam was touched by the bond.

Steffy said she wanted a part of Liam's mother to live through their little girl. She encouraged Liam to remember that they would be a stronger family if they were together, and she was convinced his mother would want that, too. Liam didn't want to discuss it.

Liam was ready to leave, but Steffy said she had something to show him. She pulled out a portrait of Liam and Steffy together in happier times. She explained that no matter what happened, she wanted their daughter to see her "mother and daddy together and in love."

Later, Liam had hung the portrait, and Steffy said it was perfect. Steffy said she had never taken their time together for granted, and she would always be grateful. "Me, too," Liam said. He agreed they'd had a lot of good times. Steffy smiled. "Yeah, we did," she said. They both agreed they had a lot to look forward to.

Steffy said she would never forget the day when she found out she was pregnant. " I never thought it was possible," she said. They laughed and agreed Kelly was a gift.

"I want our daughter to see that," Steffy said of the portrait -- "smiling and enjoying each other's company." She added that Liam would be an amazing father. "Liam, even when you're not here in this house, she can look up at that photo and see her daddy. No matter where you're living, you'll always be with her," Steffy said. Liam sighed.

Steffy commented on Liam's upcoming wedding. She wished he wouldn't go through with it. "What does that say about us? About our relationship?" Steffy asked. She begged Liam to believe that nothing was going on with Bill. "What can I do? What can I say?" she asked. She wanted to have a strong, happy little family. "If the tiniest part of you is believing what I'm saying, then don't marry Hope tomorrow," Steffy said tearfully.

At Brooke's, Ridge embraced Brooke and said everything had been happening too fast. Brooke was unapologetic. "They're getting married," Brooke announced regarding Hope and Liam.

Ridge countered that Steffy was having a baby. Brooke said she knew that it wasn't what Ridge had wanted to hear, and as a parent, she wanted the best for Hope, Steffy, and Liam. "Sorry, it is time for Liam and Hope," Brooke said.

Ridge insisted that Hope and Liam were caught up in Bill's plot. Brooke seethed that it wasn't all a plot. "You're just not happy with Liam's decision," she said. She wanted everything to be settled before the baby arrived.

Ridge maintained that Steffy was not in a relationship with Bill, but Liam thought it was still in progress. "She's fighting for her man," Ridge countered. He felt that if anyone would understand that, it would be Brooke.

Brooke countered that she had fought for her relationship with Ridge, but Liam had made his decision. Ridge insisted that Hope and Liam should wait for the baby to be born. He wanted to allow them time to bond over the baby's birth.

Hope entered, overheard the conversation, and announced that she was not postponing her wedding. She didn't want Ridge and Brooke fighting. She reiterated that Steffy had betrayed Liam in the worst possible way. Hope reminded Ridge that she had believed Steffy and had helped her fight for her marriage at first.

Hope maintained that if Liam had wanted to be with Steffy, he would be. "Too much has happened," Hope said. Ridge maintained that Liam had wanted to forgive Steffy's one betrayal. Ridge encouraged Hope to wait. "Liam knows how he feels about me," Hope said. Brooke maintained that Hope was not a homewrecker. Liam had left Steffy because of decisions she'd made.

Brooke, Ridge, and Hope continued to argue, and Liam entered and interrupted. Ridge reminded him that Steffy had had an ultrasound appointment, and Liam said he'd been there. He and Steffy had named the baby Kelly Spencer.

Hope smiled and acknowledged that it was for Liam's mother, and Kelly would live on in Liam's daughter. Ridge added that it was just as his own mother lived on through her namesake -- Steffy.

Liam said that he had accompanied Steffy home to the cliff house, and they'd had a long discussion. He acknowledged that Steffy had asked him to wait, but the wedding would take place as scheduled. He looked forward to standing in that very room the next day and becoming husband and wife. Ridge was sad, and Liam and Hope hugged.

At Spencer, Katie and Wyatt discussed what to do about Wyatt's guilty conscience. Katie maintained that no one had forced Liam to propose to Hope. Wyatt countered that it wasn't right. Liam had been ready to return to Steffy and forgive her.

Katie reminded Wyatt that Liam and Hope had been cheated out of every chance they'd had to be together. "What about his daughter? Don't I have an obligation to tell the truth?" Wyatt asked.

Katie said she didn't want Wyatt to start a fight with his father. She worried that Wyatt had been quick to believe that Steffy could have been involved with Bill, and she wondered if it could happen again. "Why were you so ready to believe it?" she asked.

Katie reminded Wyatt that she had been through Bill and Steffy's relationship before. She was convinced it could happen again.

Wyatt understood, but he felt he was selling his soul and selling out Steffy and Liam. Katie felt for Wyatt and wished they could fix things, but she felt it was best to stay out of it because Liam had been miserable for a long time with Steffy. "He's not miserable anymore," she said. She added that Hope and Liam belonged together, and Bill had manipulated them. "Steffy betrayed Liam in the worst way imaginable," she said.

Wyatt said that Liam felt that Wyatt was someone he could depend on and trust. Katie said everything that had happened had nothing to do with Wyatt. It all had to do with Bill undermining Liam and Hope in Italy and Aspen. "Steffy and Bill were there to tear them apart. Steffy and Bill robbed them," Katie said.

Wyatt agreed, but he remembered that Liam had forgiven Steffy until Wyatt had interfered. Wyatt said that Liam had bought Steffy bouquets of white roses, "and I stopped them." He worried that he had to figure out if his loyalty was to Bill or to Steffy and Liam.
