Don Diamont will be a grandpa.

Born as Donald Feinberg on December 31, 1962, in the bustling city of New York, Don Diamont entered the world of entertainment with a flair that would eventually captivate audiences worldwide. Adopting his mother’s maiden name early in his career, he ventured into the modeling industry, swiftly earning the admiration of industry titans.

In 1984, fate took a turn when Ken Corday handpicked Diamont to grace the screens of Days of our Lives as Carlo Forenza for a full year. Soon after, he made a bold move to The Young and the Restless, portraying the charming gardener Brad Carlton. Carlton’s journey in Genoa City, filled with business acumen and romantic entanglements, became a staple of the show. Despite facing trials like being kidnapped by his lunatic ex-wife Lisa Mansfield, played by Lynne Harbaugh, Diamont’s portrayal of Brad Carlton stood out, culminating in a respected position as a Jabot executive and a memorable marriage to Traci Abbott, portrayed by Beth Maitland.

The ’90s marked a temporary departure from Y&R as Diamont explored acting opportunities on Baywatch, Diagnosis Murder, and High Tide. However, his triumphant return in 1998 showcased his undeniable connection with the soap opera world. Sadly, his departure from Y&R came with a poignant twist, as his character heroically saved another from drowning in an icy lake.

March of the same year brought a new chapter for Diamont as he joined the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful, making his debut as the enigmatic “Dollar” Bill Spencer on May 12. His portrayal of this character has been nothing short of iconic, captivating audiences and adding layers to the show’s narrative.

Beyond the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, Diamont has earned accolades such as being the first daytime actor featured in People Magazine’s Most Beautiful People In the World list in 1990. Nearly two decades later, he was declared the Sexiest Veteran Soap Actor by the same prestigious magazine.

Diamont’s influence extends beyond the screen, as he actively contributes to and advocates for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Additionally, his role as the spokesperson for Sure Ultra Dry products and the Morris Home Furnishings store in Dayton, Ohio, showcases his multifaceted talents and commitment to various causes.

As we raise a toast to Don Diamont on his 61st birthday, we celebrate not just the actor but the legacy he has carved in the hearts of soap opera enthusiasts and the wider entertainment industry.
