The flowers children sent out to their moms for Mother’s Day are likely still thriving, but the same can’t be said for a popular mother/daughter duo on “The Bold and the Beautiful.” Both Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) and Hunter Tylo (Taylor Hayes) are exiting the sudser!

“I will clarify that Jackie and I are (coincidentally) off our contracts,” Tylo wrote in a message posted on her official website. “I have been very successful outside of ‘B&B’ and I have no doubt she will too — and moreso, because she is free and single to travel all over the world. For me, contract talks ended 4 weeks ago. I am moving forward and opening back up to the thousands of acting roles available, writing, and pursuing my skin care line. My friends and ‘B&B’ fans will be sorely missed. But don’t worry! I’ll keep you posted of my every new adventure!”

A rep for the show was unable to comment on the exit of Tylo, who revealed via Twitter that her last airdate will be Wednesday, July 3. However, when it comes to Wood, the spokesperson says she is “taking a short break, as she has done in the past, from ‘B&B.’ She remains as the character of Steffy Forrester and is continuing to tape, currently with episodes airing through July of 2013 and then beyond.”
