"I wasn't expecting to do another soap so soon after Days of Our Lives but this is a story that's groundbreak­ing and overdue," Braun told TV Guide. "Two female soap characters having a baby together is unprecedented. I wanted to be a part of something that could have a strong and posi­tive impact and help give same-sex couples their rightful place in the world of daytime drama."

But can viewers trust this Reese? Riegel has a loyal fan base that is known for being protective of her character.

"Reese is a strong, independent woman," said Braun. "She's also very warm and real and very expressive with her feelings. And she's madly in love with Bianca. It's the kind of love you can't describe, the kind of love Reese has never known before."
