Some facts about Katie Logan
Katie is the daughter of Beth and Stephen Logan. She was born in 1971 and grew up in the San Fernando Valley alongside her older sisters, Brooke and Donna. Growing up, Katie always felt overshadowed by Katie and Brooke, and her severe acne didn’t help matters.

Katie was about to marry Nick Newman, but after noticing that Nick still had feelings for Bridget, she decided to call off their engagement and get drunk at a local club, where she met her future husband, Bill. Spencer Jr.

The two eventually started dating, and when Bill acquired Forrester Creations, he named her CEO and asked the big question. Katie and Bill were married in her childhood neighborhood, but their marriage fell apart due to Bill’s wandering eyes.
