The actress, who began her maternity leave from the show back in December of last year, will make a return to Y&R this week.
The show reportedly phoned Bell and told her that they needed her back on-screen for a few episodes and Bell was said to be more than happy to make the brief return. The actress makes her on-sreen return on Tuesday, July 24 and Wednesday, July 25.
Bell gave birth to a son, Christian, on January 17. Some viewers have questioned the unusually long nature of her maternity leave, with some asserting that her father, Y&R creator Bill Bell, is extending special privileges to Bell.
Bell remains on maternity leave from the show and it is unclear when she will return to the canvas full-time.
