Camryn Grimes, known for her enduring role as Mariah Copeland in the popular soap opera “The Young and the Restless,” recently delighted fans with a significant update in her personal life. Having originally portrayed Mariah’s twin sister, Cassie Newman, from 1997 to 2005, Grimes made history by becoming the youngest recipient of the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actress at the tender age of 10. Her remarkable talent was further recognized when she clinched a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Mariah in 2018. Reflecting on her impressive 25-year journey with the show in a 2022 interview with Daytime Confidential, Grimes expressed a sense of surreal gratitude, underscoring the significance of this milestone.
In January 2022, Camryn Grimes shared a deeply personal milestone with her fans by announcing her engagement to her longtime partner, voice actor Brock Powell. Taking to Instagram, she shared the heartwarming moment, featuring close-up shots of her dazzling engagement ring. Alongside the images, she captioned, “‘You and me, we’re in a club now.’ — Ellie from ‘Up.’ Engaged. 01.07.22 #onlyupfromhere.” Later, in an interview with People, Grimes described the proposal as profoundly touching, noting how moved she was by the experience. Since then, she has openly shared glimpses of her affectionate relationship with Powell.
Grimes and Powell’s romantic journey commenced in 2020 when they made their relationship public on Instagram shortly after Grimes openly discussed her bisexuality in May of that year. During a getaway to Sedona, Arizona, Grimes posted endearing snapshots of the couple, humorously noting, “Well, he made it on the grid. Oh boy this is gonna go straight to his head.” Powell shared that their connection began through his mentor, Bill Farmer, renowned for voicing Disney’s iconic character, Goofy. Their rapport was immediate, and the lockdown only deepened their bond.
The voice actor, known for his work in “Hotel Transylvania,” had originally planned a creative stop-motion animated proposal on Christmas Eve of 2021. However, due to COVID-19, the momentous occasion was rescheduled by a few weeks. In a recent social media post, Grimes unveiled their decision to tie the knot in San Diego, California, expressing their excitement for a venue that perfectly encapsulates their unique personalities.
On August 5, 2023, Camryn Grimes joyfully announced that she and her fiancé, Brock Powell, were expecting their first child. Sharing the news on Instagram, she proudly displayed her blossoming pregnancy, captioning the photos, “I guess you can add mother to my resume.” Grimes disclosed that she was five months along, emphasizing the spontaneity of the news. The response from her “Y&R” family and castmates was immediate and filled with heartfelt congratulations. Grimes revealed that the revelation of her pregnancy was met with elation, recounting how she rushed to share the positive test result with Powell, who was equally overjoyed. The impending arrival of their child is anticipated to bring an extra layer of joy to their impending nuptials, creating a beautiful and cherished memory.
