Steffy was born two minutes before her fraternal twin, Phoebe, on September 21, 1999 (air date). Five years later Steffy was sorased (soap opera rapid aging syndrome) to a teenager and three years after that in 2008 Steffy was aged to the adult we are currently familiar with (portrayed by Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).
Steffy and Phoebe were initially portrayed as children by a series of identical twins but their “twinness “ was later downgraded to fraternal when MacInness Wood was cast as Steffy in 2008 after her sister, Phoebe (Mackenzie Mauzy) died in a car accident.
From her mother suffering from Tuberculosis while pregnant with Steffy and Phoebe, to Taylor almost dying during childbirth, like most soap opera babies, Steffy’s life had endured much drama even before she was born.
Things didn’t slow down with Steffy falling overboard on a family vacation that saw her parent renew their wedding vows when she was 2 years old. She was presumed dead – eaten by a shark. Steffy was in reality kidnapped by Morgan DeWitt, an ex girlfriend of Ridges obsessed with having his child.
Taylor found Steffy alive and well at Morgan’s house but was incarcerated by Morgan for her efforts. Ridge put two and two together rescuing his wife and daughter and reuniting their family.
Steffy was raised for much of her childhood by Ridge’s other lady love, Brooke Logan, who he turned to and married just months after Taylor’s death at the hands of Sheila Carter.
In a bid to leave Thomas and Oliver Malibu beach house and get home to Liam quickly, Steffy made a decision that would forever change her life. With PCH blocked with traffic due to an accident, Steffy got on her motor cycle that Thomas was storing for her while she was pregnant. She would get home quicker on the bike than in the car. But as Steffy pulled out of a side street she was hit by a car and tossed the the bitumen unconscious. She was rushed the the hospital where Dr Meade told Steffy and Liam that she had lost her baby.

February 2015 – Steffy Supports Liam With One Condition
In February 2015, Steffy returned to The Bold and the Beautiful storytelling when her ex-husband Liam, knowing she was in Los Angeles, from her social media posts, phoned her. Liam wanted Steffy’s help. And Steffy, still in love with Liam, came running when he called.
Liam, who was tired of how Rick Forrester was running Forrester Creations and treating the employees, most notably, Liam’s current girlfriend, Ivy Forrester, was putting together a plan to oust Rick from the CEO job at Forrester Creations.
He needed Steffy’s help to do it. By combining Bill, Steffy, Thomas and Ridge’s shares they would have a majority shareholding and could move to have Rick removed as CEO. Steffy, though initially hesitant to go against her family, after seeing Rick’s rule of terror at Forrester Creations agreed something had to be done.
But Steffy has a condition for her support of Liam’s plan which saw her returning to Los Angeles to run Forrester Creations. If Steffy came back to Los Angeles and back Liam’s plan she was coming back to everything – her relationship with Liam included. Steffy told Ivy that Ivy and Liam’s relationship was merely a bump in the road in her relationship with Liam. They were after all only dating and Ivy and Liam’s relationship didn’t compare to the depth of her and Liam’s, Steffy reasoned.
Liam, however, was standing by his relationship with Ivy….despite Bill advising that Liam dump the plant to get Steffy on side for the business deal AND Ridge making it clear that his daughter’s happiness was contingent on him supporting Liam’s plan also.
Steffy left Los Angeles and returned to Paris, but not for long.

Liam agreed. A cartel formed of Ridge, Steffy, Liam (with the use of Bill Spencer’s shares) ousted Rick on a shareholder count. An unfortunate side effect was Ridge betraying his father in the process (Eric was a stoic defender of Rick as CEO, no matter how bad his behavior was).
