Brandon Barash and Kirsten Storms' secret wedding and the news they are expecting their first child took fans by surprise. Now, more details are coming out about how their wedding came to be. Barash shared with People how everything went down.
We had just left our first baby doctor's appointment, and were riding high. Even though our baby was more in the shape of a pancake with a heartbeat, we were quite jolly. My dad was playing in the World Series of Poker at the time, a lifelong dream, so he and my stepmom were in Vegas for the weekend.
On our walk home – yes, we actually walked in L.A. – we received a text from them that he had been knocked out in the first 45 minutes. He was crushed. Kirsten and I looked at each other and said in unison (a common occurrence with us), "Wanna go to Vegas and get married?!" That was all we needed.
Check out Barash and Storms' story–including how he officially popped the question with a blue raspberry Ring Pop–at People.
Newlywed Brandon Barash on Baby With GH's Kirsten Storms: "We Conceived in Tony Geary‘s Guest Room!"By Jamey Giddens on August 20, 2013
There must be something in the water in Port Charles, New York. Real-life couples are springing up on and off the set of General Hospital left and right! Former GH'er Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny) has announced he and Kirsten Storms (Maxie) are married and expecting a baby! Said Barash to People:
We kept things quiet because of everything that can go wrong during the first trimester,” Barash, 33, explains. “Kirsten did have a rocky [time] and we were in and out of the hospital.”
It was a rough start to a very welcome surprise for the couple, he adds. “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 [GH star] Tony Geary‘s guest room!” READ MORE
