        Natalie and Brody make the decision to pursue a relationship and provide a real family for their son, though they know they’ll be jeopardizing their relationships with a lot of people, especially Jessica. Natalie wants no more secrets from John and leaves to tell him how things stand with Brody. Left alone, Brody listens to the tape and hears Marty confessing that John is really Liam’s father.

        John gives Blair the details of Jack’s arrest and subsequent release. Blair is upset about her son’s behavior and Todd’s interference on his behalf. John and Blair’s conversation turns to the subject of other personal relationships and Blair advises John to try to move forward with Natalie. John prepares to tell Natalie he thinks he can get past what happened, just as Natalie prepares to tell him she’s moved on with Brody. Upset off his fight with Téa, Todd gets drunk and ends up telling Marty’s secret, that Liam is John’s son, to a fellow drinker, Vimal.

                  Real-Life 'One Life' Couple Gets Engaged

                  ( — Two of “One Life to Live’s” newest cast members have taken the next step in their relationship. Terri Conn (Aubrey) and Austin Peck (Rick), who fell in love while playing husband and wife on “As the World Turns,” publicly announced their recent engagement during red carpet interview shortly before this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards telecast.

                  Conn joined “One Life to Live” as Aubrey Wentworth last December. From 1998-2010 she played Katie Peretti on “As the World Turns.” Peck made his “OLTL” debut as smut peddler Rick Powers back in March. He previously played Austin Reed on “Days of our Lives” from 1995-2002 (and again from 2005-2006, and briefly in 2010), and Brad Snyder on “As the World Turns” from 2007-2009. In an interesting twist, their “One Life” characters have yet to interact on screen.

                  A wedding date for the happy couple has not been set, however it will be the second marriage for both actors.

                  Click here to read a March SON interview with Conn and Peck, in which they discuss their relationship and their roles on “One Life to Live.”

                  Congratulations to Terri Conn and Austin Peck on your engagement from Soap Opera Network!
