Michael Baldwin and Lauren Fenmore Baldwin are fictional characters and a supercouple from the CBS Daytime soap opera, The Young and the Restless. Michael Baldwin, now a successful lawyer, is the son of conman, River Baldwin and socialite, Gloria Abbott Bardwell.

Fenmore heiress, Lauren Baldwin is a boutique owner and the daughter of wealthy businessman Neil Fenmore and his high school sweetheart, Joanna Manning. Michael has been portrayed by Christian LeBlanc since 1991 and Lauren has been portrayed by Tracey E. Bregman since 1983.

Likey is the name given to the relationship between Michael Baldwin and his wife Lauren Fenmore Baldwin.


A while back, Michael and Lauren knew each other, but weren't friends. They became closer as Lauren showed kindness to Kevin Fisher, Michael's younger brother and started befriending Michael also. Lauren posted Kevin's bail when he was arrested, instead of Michael, because Michael would have had to put his apartment up for bail money. Michael was grateful and they became friends who evantually turned into lovers.

They first kissed when they were at a friendly brunch discussing how to get Kevin to get over his obsession with Lauren. Lauren and Michael got married December 9, 2005 on a Friday. They are still a happy couple who have never cheated on each other (a soap opera rarity!)

Lauren and Michael had several problems with Sheila Carter, who was obsessed with Lauren, shortly after their wedding. Sheila tried to kill Lauren, and blew up their boat on their honeymoon. Everyone thought that Lauren was dead, when she was really being held hostage by Sheila and Tom Fisher, Kevin's dad.

Lauren gave birth to their son Fenmore Michael Baldwin the October of 2006. Little Fen was born premature and spent the first month of his life in NICU. A little while later, Sheila kidnapped Fen, as well as Lauren's friend Phyllis and her baby. Lauren tracked them down and killed Sheila.

In 2010, Sheila's sister, Sara Smythe, along with two of Sheila's kids, came to town bent on revenge. Sheila's daughter, Daisy, tricked Lauren into moving in with them by getting rid of Michael's younger sister, Eden . Daisy started to drug Lauren. Michael and Lauren teamed up to take Daisy and her brother down, but Lauren ended up being kidnapped by Sara, who had plastic surgery to look like Lauren. Sara attempted to take over Lauren's life, but Michael knew something was wrong. Fen did to, as Sara wasn't acting like his mommy. After Sara tried to kill Phyllis, Michael tracked her down and learned she wasn't really Lauren. He then helped rescue Lauren, who pretty already escaped. Lauren was then tearfully reunited with her son.
