Ridge Forrester and Caroline Spencer Forrester II are fictional characters and a couple on CBS's daytime soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful. Ridge is the son of business mogul, Massimo Marone and Stephanie Forrester, but raised as the son of fashion designer, Eric Forrester. Caroline is the daughter of Karen Spencer and an unknown man. Caroline is the adoptive the daughter of Karen's wife, Danielle Spencer.

Ridge is portrayed by Thorsten Kaye and Caroline is portrayed by Linsey Godfrey. They are commonly referred to by the couple name "CaRidge".


The relationship begins when Caroline is asked to help Ridge, who can't seem to design after a horrific accident involving Caroline's uncle Bill Spencer. Having idolized Ridge for years, Caroline agrees to help him rediscover his talent for designing. However, she is put off by his perfectionist ways. Despite that, Ridge helps Caroline realize how good she really is, which proves to be a boast to her confidence. However, they begin to grow closer on a personal level, which bothers Caroline because of her being married to Rick Forrester, who has hated and despised Ridge for many years. Still, they continue to work together and come up with some amazing designs, which Ridge takes credit for. While Caroline is OK with that, Rick isn't and makes his feelings on that known. Still, he decides to support his wife.

Meanwhile, Rick's ex Maya Avant becomes suspicious and voices her concerns to Rick, who simply blows them off. Meanwhile, Ridge and Caroline continue to grow closer personally while they work together. The breaking point comes when Ridge tells Caroline that he cares about her and that Rick isn't worthy of her. He then kisses her, which leaves her feeling very guilty because of Rick. After kissing a few more times, Caroline tells Ridge that it may be best to put an end to their professional collaboration, which he agrees to.

At a meeting to determine who will be Forrester Creations' new chief executive officer, Eric announces that he has chosen Ridge for the position, which upsets Rick. However, Maya, who is at the meeting, blurts out that Ridge and Caroline are having an affair. Caroline breaks down and admits that she did kiss Ridge. Rick is furious and leaves. The situation puts both Caroline's marriage and Ridge's engagement to Katie Logan in jeopardy. Things for Caroline get even more terrible when she discovers that Rick and Maya had sex. However, under pressure from his father, Rick ends things with Maya and reunites with Caroline, who later begins working with Ridge again. However, unbeknownst to her, Rick is still involved with Maya.

Eric decided to step down from his CEO position and give it to either of his two sons, Rick or Ridge. At the Forrester meeting, Eric was gonna give the position to Ridge because he's a designer when Maya blurted out that he's having and affair with Caroline. This was shocking and Maya asked Caroline to just simply say no if it's not. Caroline began crying and confessed to Rick about the attraction between her and Ridge. Rick was furious and rushed off. Maya arrived at Brooke's house to see Rick angry and violent and upset. Rick took his ring off and said his marriage to Caroline was over. Rick thanked her for informing him. Maya comforted him and the two began making out on the couch, resulting in them making love. Caroline came over the following morning to try and patch things up but was stunned to see Maya wearing nothing but a bathrobe. After trashing her in front of Rick, Maya told Caroline off, letting her know she had lost Rick to her worst nightmare. Caroline then pleaded with Rick to not give up on their marriage and to put his wedding ring back on. However, he turned his back on her, leaving her devastated. With Maya by his side, Rick finally gets what he has always wanted: becoming CEO of Forrester Creations Rick made Maya lead model for HFTF. Rick was very displeased that the fashion show went well because he priced the cost of the dresses so high that nobody would buy them.  Eric was furious with him that he did that. Eric told him he was being immature and Rick shot back that he doesn't know how Eric could still hire all his exes to work with him. Eric gave Rick an ultimatum that he can have the CEO position if he goes back to Caroline. Rick decided to try to patch things back up with Caroline. At first she was very hesitant and confused but eventually she agreed after she let Ridge go back to Katie. Rick broke the news to Maya, who was angry, heartbroken, and upset. Rick then tried to explain to her that he's doing this for them, and that Caroline's only temporary for the position. Maya painfully agreed. Eric suggested Ridge and Caroline should be a team again, which made Rick jealous, but he agreed that this would be a good idea. Rick gave Maya Steffy's old apartment, which she loved. It had the bathtub that Jackie Marone had installed when she lived there, and Rick and Maya tried to out together making out. Caroline later called Rick, who told her that he was up to his neck in hot water with work. Meanwhile, Rick and Maya continue to grow closer.
