JJ was born on Melaswen (mid-2005), so he would be turning 8 without SORASing. Claire was born closer to the end of the same year (since Shawn was rushing back & forth to the hospital donating blood during Zack's last Christmas). So, technically, JJ & Claire are the same age. That sounds really strange. & Ciara is technically only a year younger than Claire. Theo should technically be 2 years older than JJ & Claire.

Jenn Lilley would be a fantastic Belle re-cast. I am excited if it's true. My question is what will they do about Claire? When Claire left the canvas in 2008, she was about 6, I think. Can Ms. Lilley pull off being the mother of an 11 year old?
If Belle ever does come back, I think they will have to play with Claire's age a bit. I think they aged her during the RoboJohn storyline anyway, so they could always de-age her to the correct age. They've done it before with Abigail (a few times).
It would make sense to have Claire be JJ's age.
As for Abby, wasn't it recently revealed that she's doing her PhD? if that's true, then they really haven't de-aged her. She's simply older than Gabi, Will, & Chad. I don't remember if we've ever gotten an actual age for Sonny.
Yeah, but when she was younger they played with her age. When she left for Ireland with Jennifer she'd aged pretty naturally. When they came back she was pretty much the same age as when she left and she was played by that creepy child who interacted with Bratty Will. Then Jillian Claire came in and they aged her a bit, and again with Ashley Benson because she was suddenly older than Will again.
How old is JJ supposed to be now? It wouldn't make sense to have Belle and Shawn the parents of a child who is a teenager. I hate soap opera ages.
If we're going by actual years (we'll go with Shawn's actual birth year & assume Belle is the same age), Shawn & Belle were 18 when Claire was born. Without SORASing, they'd be turning 26 this year.
