Congratulations are in order to the beautiful and talented duo of Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) and Brandon Barash (Ex-Johnny) of General Hospital! According to a story that just broke today via PEOPLE magazine, the couple were married back in June, and Storms is pregnant with the couple’s first child, a baby girl!

Barash told PEOPLE why the decision to keep everything hush-hush until now: “We kept things quiet because of everything that can go wrong during the first trimester. Kirsten did have a rocky [time] and we were in and out of the hospital.”  The pregnancy came as a surprise to the couple because of Kirsten’s battle with endometriosis.

Barash revealed, “We talked about wanting to have kids and Kirsten was told she could try hormone therapy. It was pretty bleak as far as the probability of her being able to get pregnant … but then we got back from a trip to Amsterdam and discovered we were expecting. We calculated that we conceived the baby in Tony Geary‘s (Luke’s) guest room!”

Brandon is very excited to welcome their baby daughter into the world! “We’re having a little girl in January. It’s been the most amazing couple of months of our lives.” 

Talk about life imitating art, since Kirsten’s Port Charles alter-ego, Maxie Jones has been pregnant and giving birth on the show too!  Send your well-wishes and congrats to Brandon and Kirsten here!

Congratulations on your marriage and impending parenthood. you were very smart to keep it a secret a special time like this should be cherished and enjoyed and given Kirsten’s medical issues this was a very smart move. I wish you all the best and long happy life.

Kirsten did a great job today in the labor scenes. I imagine a real life pregnancy made those scenes more interesting to do. I miss Brandon. Please bring him back, GH.

Awww…congrats to the happy couple and their little “Maxiccara!” Oddly enough, I always found Storms’ portrayal as pregnant to suspend belief because she remained so perky, petite and perfect (unlike Britt who moves and totally behaves like a whale of an expectant mother….) Guess the joke was on us all!!!! Just hope they don’t name the baby “Georgie!!!” LOL…..

Patrick
Patrick

LOL….

that’s so Funny…. the part about Britt.

quite frankly… I was more invested in Britt’s… than Maxie’s pregnancy… I guess… cause we “know”, and/or thought we knew the outcome with Maxie… it wasn’t going to be hers…. from the start….

Ok… lambast me about Britt’s storyline… but… I wanted her to bond with this baby… and she, as a person…(her questionable… parents…) Britt’ was discovering her self… and questioning her being…. so… it all fit in my story, that Britt… play this all out from her point of view.

and let the chips fall where they may…. her fallout, comeuppance. Britt’s involved with ‘her” baby.

Shay
Shay

As someone who never was anti-Dr. Westbourne, I am actually enjoying Britt more and more, and it’s not simply because of her priceless relationship with the “mother of all mutters”….although it certainly helps!!!! Once we were treated to the “Britch’s” backstory, I found her to be intriguing and far more interesting than when she was simply this one-dimensional villainess with no explanation for her agenda/behavior. She obviously has a very damaged psyche, and is desperate for a road to redemption. At this point, it is hard to see that just becoming a mother will accomplish this objective, because it appears that the paternity issue will not be a long-lasting mystery. Too bad, as I would love to see her baby bond and win Patrick’s heart away from “Sabrina the Teenage Stalker.” At any rate, I do hope that she will be able to wriggle out of her current legal problems, further develop her character and form some healthy relationships. Lastly, I would love to see her dubbed with a new nickname…the current one’s getting really old…speaking of, LOVED Anna D.’s disapproving reaction to that distasteful moniker during last week’s conversation with Felix. Pure class!!!!!

Patrick
Patrick

Britt.

“…She obviously has a very damaged psyche”

you said it perfectly.

how better to get involved with a story.

Kelly Thiebaud made this story… much more multi- faceted.. and multi-dimensional for Britt & the audience.

Britt’ mother… added personal intrigue… big.

Britt and Nicholas… pairing in the wings? who wouldn’t? Yikes!

props to Kelly Thiebaud again…. Jason Thompson and Tyler Christopher. Big.

mother/daughter duos are FUN, Interesting, and you cheer them on… Root…

a nice turn from the Patrick/Sabrina twist

she’s a keeper…. newbie on the rise.

Patrick
Patrick

perhaps “Maxie” should name “her” daughter… Tiara….

Passions Alum Brook Kerr Joins The Cast Of General Hospital

Casting news today has that none other than former Passions star, Brooke Kerr (Ex-Whitney Russell-Harris Crane) is set to debut in a new role on General Hospital.

According to EW.com, look for Kerr to make her first Port Charles appearance on the upcoming Thursday, March 5th installment.

Passions fans remember that in story, Kerr’s character Whitney was in a relationship with the character of Chad (Donn Swaby and later, Charles Divins).  Chad was believed to be Whitney’s half-brother, but later it was revealed to not be the case, and the duo ended up tying the knot.

Since Passions, Kerr has been seen on Hawaii Five-0, Westworld, and True Blood to name just a few TV appearances.

So excited to hear that Brook is coming to GH? Who do you think she will play and be involved with in story on the soap? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Gives Wiley To Michael; While Willow Learns the Devastating Truth

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, brought the highly-emotional moments viewers had been waiting for all-week long; following the year and a half reveal that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Brad (Parry Shen) engineered a baby switch with Willow’s (Katelyn MacMullen) dead baby, Wiley being passed off as Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle’s newborn, Jonah, and Jonah being raised by Brad and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) as Wiley.  Now with the truth out, it was time for two of the heaviest beats of the story to be played out.

When Willow comes to at the hospital with Chase (Josh Swickard) by her side, needless to say she is dazed and freaking out that Nelle took Wiley.  Chase tells her he has some things to tell her and it’s not going to be easy to hear. Willow braces herself and then Chase tells her the story of the baby switch and how her baby died a SIDS death while at Brad and Lucas’ and then how the babies were switched.

Photo: ABC

In a heartbreaking and powerful performance from Katelyn MacMullen (yes, she is our pick for “Power Performance of the Week”), Willow struggles to come to grips with the truth and starts to realize all of Brad’s machinations, as she thinks back to herself how could she do that to her son … to trust him with Brad, only to have the little infant die.  The devastation played by MacMullen, whose Willow, now must realize her baby never lived the full and happy young life she thought, was gut-wrenching.

Meanwhile, in yet another top-notch performance, William deVry (Julian) showed the pain and the need to unburden himself as Julian talks to his sister. Ava (Maura West) and spills what happened.   He goes so far to admit to Ava that he knew what Brad had done. Ava cannot believe he did not go to Sonny (Maurice Benard) right away with this Intel, but Julian just could not do this to his son, Lucas and rip the baby from his arms.  Julian says he will face-off with Sonny and not leave town, if it comes to that.   Ava says they have to come up with a way to silence Brad … before Brad gives up Julian’s part in the whole baby cover-up.

Photo: JPI

And in yet another masterful performance, we have to give it up to Chloe Lanier.  Who can play Nelle and spin stories and the tears so well, that if you did not know this pathological liar you would think she is telling the truth. When in opposing holding cells at the PCPD, Nelle lays it on about Brad so that the guard can hear them. She blames Brad for being the instigator in the baby switch and taking advantage of her – a distraught new mother, confused and dazed on the route where the baby switch happened.  It works! Brad is moved to a different cell and thinks look very grim for him.  Nelle smiles through her crocodile tears!

Photo: JPI

Then, in what we all knew had to happen, and even so, was still as heartbreaking as ever; Lucas spends his final moments with Wiley as his father in the kitchen at the Corinthos’ along with Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Carly (Laura Wright).  Lucas starts to tell his mother and sister, all the things Wiley needs and likes, such as having a story read to him.  All of this brings the tears as they know Lucas has to give the child back to Michael; who has been robbed of a year and half as the baby’s rightful father.

Michael tells Lucas they will work this out, so Lucas remains a constant in Wiley’s life. He also tells Sonny and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) he feels so badly for Lucas, but they tell him to be happy for this chance to have the son he grieved for.   In the end, a tear-filled Lucas hands Wiley to Michael as everyone watches on in sadness for one father … and joy for the other.  Ryan Carnes was poignant in the scenes; as was Chad Duell.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

Meanwhile, Sasha (Sofia Matteson) has urgently called Chase (Josh Swickard), who leaves “Wiley” and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) behind, and heads to the Corinthos’ where he hears the whole sad truth about the baby switch.

With Chase gone, Nelle goes looking for “Wiley” who is with Willow, and the two get into a major throwdown catfight.  Nelle comes out the victor and goes to get her baby ready to leave town with her son.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.
