Though weddings and births are frequent for occurrences for soap opera fans, it’s no less exciting to hear that “General Hospital” star Kirsten Storms is married and has her first child on the way.

In June, “GH”’s Maxie Jones secretly married Brandon Barash, who played Johnny Zacchara on the hit daytime soap for several years.

Barash confirmed the news to “People,” adding that the couple are expecting a baby girl in January.

“A couple of weeks ago, she wasn’t really showing, but now her curves have just taken over,” the actor told “People.” “It makes me love her even more. It feels like a fairytale – we are so lucky.”

Storms suffers from endometriosis, and as Barash explains, doctors were not optimistic about her chances of being pregnant.

“We kept things quiet because of everything that can go wrong during the first trimester,” he said. “Kirsten did have a rocky [time] and we were in and out of the hospital.”

After a vacation to Amsterdam where they stayed with “GH” star Tony Geary, who plays Luke Spencer, the stars learned the happy news.
