Congratulations are in order for Kirsten Storms and Brandon Barash.
The General Hospital actress, 29, and her former costar are expecting their first child. “We’re having a little girl in January,” the proud papa-to-be — who also reveals that the couple secretly wed in June – tells PEOPLE. ”It’s been the most amazing couple of months of our lives.”
“We kept things quiet because of everything that can go wrong during the first trimester,” he went on to say. “Kirsten did have a rocky [time] and we were in and out of the hospital.”
“We talked about wanting to have kids and Kirsten was told she could try hormone therapy,” the actor, 33, adds. “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!”
He adds: “A couple of weeks ago she wasn’t really showing, but now her curves have just taken over. It makes me love her even more. It feels like a fairytale — we are so lucky.”
