Newlywed Brandon Barash on Baby With GH’s Kirsten Storms: “We Conceived in Tony Geary‘s Guest Room!”


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!”
