Parenting team Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) on “The Young and the Restless” are about to get a little surprise: Their daughter, Faith, is going to be a whole new person!

The little girl’s current portrayer, Alyvia Alyn Lind (pictured top, with Morrow and Case), is reportedly unavailable for an upcoming summer storyline, so the show has replaced her with young actress McKenna Grace (pictured right). A rep for the show confirms that Lind’s final appearance will be on Tuesday, July 2, while Grace’s first appearance in the recurring role as Nick and Sharon’s small wonder will be on Friday, July 12.

Lind played a young Emily Thorne in ABC’s “Revenge.” Grace has appeared in the series “Crash & Bernstein.”

The episodes covered the mock funeral of Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and the nonmarriage of Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) and Tucker McCall (Stephen Nichols). The soap submitted episode #9,999 in the category of Outstanding Drama Series Writing Team. In addition to the “Y&R” Emmy nominations, Digest asked Bell what she thought of the “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” reboots.

There’s no doubt that “The Young and the Restless’” Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) is honored to have been nominated for Outstanding Leading Actor for this year’s Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards, but believe it or not, he’ll actually be rather upset if he takes home the coveted award come ceremony night!

“I’ve had the luxury of seeing the Lead Actress and the Lead Actors’ reels, and if I’m going to be as honest as I’ve purportedly been since I joined the show… then I would have to, from this point forward, shout from the rooftops that Jason Thompson [Patrick Drake, “General Hospital”] deserves the award,” Muhney admits. “If you watched his performance, and what he did, and the story, how it was so perfectly teed up for a great, brilliantly layered performance by him, there should be an eight out of a 10 chance that he takes this home… So I don’t think I should win. It wouldn’t be fair to Jason.”

When you’re front and center on a soap opera day in and day out, life can be a little hectic. Just ask “The Young and the Restless’” Michael Muhney (Adam Newman), who verges on spending more time as his alter ego than he does himself! “With a character like Adam that’s always in the mix, the sheer content alone — the amount of pages that I memorize daily, with a front and center kind of character — it’s madness!” he says with a laugh. “But you adapt and you kind of get in your groove, and now I can’t believe how much this place feels like home.”
