Amelia Heinle is about to make a strong come back on The Young and the Restless.

The actress - just gave birth to a child with husband and co-star Thad Luckibnbill - has been away on maternity leave, but will make quite the impact shortly. Here are a few fun facts about Heinle:

  • On the set of Loving, Heinle became close friends with the late Nancy Addison Altman, who portrayed her mother.
  • Heinle played Jack in the pilot for Jack and Jill, but was replaced by Amanda Peet.
  • Soap Opera Digest named her one of the "Most Beautiful Women" in daytime.
