Chelsea Lawson is currently taking stock of her love life on The Young and the Restless (Y&R), and it appears that the star behind the role, Melissa Claire Egan, is doing the same! 

Egan took to Instagram yesterday to showcase her beloved on-screen partners – from Y&R as well as her time on All My Children (AMC) – and she even picked her favorite leading man.

“With Valentine’s Day around the corner,” Egan stated, “I’ve had the pleasure of working with some [fire emoji] co-stars between AMC and Y&R!”

As her Instagram slideshow demonstrates (see below), both Y&R‘s Chelsea and AMC’s Annie Lavery have landed some serious love interests. Y&R co-stars Joshua Morrow (Nick) and Mark Grossman (Adam) are featured alongside alums Justin Hartley, Steve Burton and current General Hospital heartthrob Cameron Mathison.

While Egan admits that there have been “lots more wonderful men than these ten will fit”, she also clued fans in to the one who’s closest to her heart, sharing “#9 is my personal fave”.

“#9 always #9,” Hartley commented.

“Second to last is my fave,” Mathison chimed in. “Humbled to be included with him.”

Should Egan’s real-life hubby, Matt Katrosar, be worried at all? As it turns out, no — because Katrosar is #9, thanks to some bit parts he played on Y&R in the fall and winter of 2020.

We’re not sure if Katrosar qualifies as a “leading man” opposite Chelsea Lawson, but we can’t critique her choice. True love should always win out on daytime drama, whether it’s in front of or behind the camera!

Have a look through Egan’s top ten and field her question for yourself: “Which Annie/Chelsea pairings were your favorite?”
