Steve and Kayla’s Son Joey Becoming a Troubled Teen
Meanwhile, it looks like Steve is returning to “Days of Our Lives” just in time. Days of Our Lives News reports that the soap is about to age Steve and Kayla’s son Joey to be a teenager and that he’ll be a troubled teen at that. It seems that Steve and Kayla will have their hands full trying to parent the wild teenager, and working together for the good of their son, Joey, could even bring them back together romantically. (You know they can’t stay away from each other!)
