“Days of our Lives” doesn’t have to roll out its own red carpet for its upcoming 50th anniversary — the Hollywood Christmas Parade is doing it, instead! The grand holiday event will be honoring the long-running NBC soap opera with a special commemoration on Sunday, November 30!
It’s always a struggle for “Days of our Lives’” Brady (Eric Martsolf) to stay sober, but events that transpire this week on the NBC sudser push the character to the absolute limit: Following a slew of outlandish circumstances that only happen on soaps, the stressed out addict was just slapped with the news that his ex-lover, Theresa (Jen Lilley), is pregnant! But just how will Brady handle this latest curveball? And will he and Theresa ever be reunited with the (as of now unborn) child that Kristen (Eileen Davidson) secretly stole? Soap Opera Network spoke with Martsolf to get his thoughts!

Because even though Theresa creates her own troubles, having her embryo stolen by Kristen (Eileen Davidson) is quite a big blow!
