The In Depth Story: According to portrayer Stacy Haiduk, Kristen left Brady because “the life she thought they would have with the baby was gone, and she didn’t want to put pain over losing the baby on him.” However, after deciding that she wanted to fight for Brady — “because she loves him,” says Haiduk — Kristen returned to Salem only to discover that he hasn’t exactly been pining away for her!

After spending some time stewing over the situation, Kristen lays her heart on the line. But will telling Brady that she’s changed her mind and wants to be together — baby…
