Tamara Braun - previously seen as crazy person Ava Vitali on Days of Our Lives - will debut on All My Children on October 30. Her role? Lesbian architect Reese Williams.

The character Reese has been enjoying a serious romance in Paris with the soap opera's sapphic icon, Bianca Montgomery (Eden Riegel). Just how serious? These two are about to become parents; Bianca is pregnant.

A the sperm donor is Bianca's brother-in-law Zach (Thorsten Kaye)! When Reese gets word of the birth, she flies in from Paris and proposes marriage.

"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."

All My Children Quotes

Greenlee Smythe Lavery: Just - I tried to remember when we weren't stressed to the max. Our honeymoon may have been the best time ever. I was just hoping that maybe tonight we could feel like that for just a few hours, let you remember how much I love you, how happy I am that I'm your wife, just like that night.
Ryan Lavery: Come here.
Greenlee Smythe Lavery: What? What are you...
Ryan Lavery: I remember everything. I remember it was going to be the first time that we made love as husband and wife. And I remember thinking to myself that my bullet wound was easy compared to waiting to make love to you. I wanted you so bad. I want you now. I want you right now.

Ryan: Do you feel that?
Gillian: Your heartbeat.
Ryan: OUR heartbeat.
