All it took was a simple tweet that said, “Can’t wait for the games today..btw I’m having another kid..have a great day. God bless,” and soap fans everywhere learned that “The Young and the Restless’” Steve Burton (Dylan McAvoy) and wife Sheree Gustin were expecting their third child.
While the sex of the baby is unknown at this time to the expectant parents, Burton shared that their newest bundle of joy is due in mid July and that it came as a surprise to them both when they got the news. The two are the proud parents of daughter Makena Grace, 10, and son Jack Marshall, 7. Burton noted he is “so ready,” when asked by a fan if he was ready for fatherhood again.
Just as Sabrina Santiago learns that she is pregnant on ABC’s “General Hospital,” her portrayer reveals she is also pregnant in real-life, reports People magazine. “It feels wonderful. This is the most joyous time of my life,” said actress Teresa Castillo to the publication, where she announced she was expecting her first child – a girl – with husband Shane Aaron. “It feels great to finally be able to share it with the world,” she added.
Wed in 2008, the couple are expecting their bundle of joy in May, while in reel-life Sabrina will be experiencing a headache full of drama in the coming months as she debates on how to inform Patrick (Jason Thompson), who just left her in order to return to the arms and bed of his recently revealed to be alive wife, Robin (Kimberly McCullough), about their surprise post-wedding gift. Castillo tells ABC Soaps In Depth, “I feel like it was appropriate for the story. It just adds to the drama, and I love it.”
In February, it was announced that former “All My Children” star Josh Duhamel (ex-Leo du Pres) and wife Fergie (real name Stacy Ferguson) were expecting their first child. On “Live with Kelly and Michael,” Duhamel revealed the sex of the baby!
“Devious Maids” star Paula Garces (Lea Marquez, “All My Children”) won’t have any trouble finding a fellow playdate mommy once her bundle of joy arrives this fall: Her “Maids” co-star Dania Ramirez is also expecting — twins!
With word that “All My Children’s” Eden Riegel (Bianca Montgomery) was with child, you’d think that would be enough for the writing team of The OnLine Network’s popular anytime soap to handle (deciding whether to somehow write it in or to not, if even remotely possible), but now comes word that another actress is also with child!
Congratulations are in order for Brian Hallisay and Jennifer Love Hewitt, the stars of Lifetime’s provocative drama “The Client List.” Not only is it revealed that the two are engaged in the newest issue of Us Magazine, on sale now, but the duo are also expecting their first child!
Just a short time ago, singer Fergie (real name Stacy Ferguson) announced on Twitter that she and husband Josh Duhamel (ex-Leo du Pres, “All My Children”) are expecting their first child. The multi Grammy Award winner tweeted an instagram photo of herself and Duhamel with the caption “Josh & Me & BABY makes three!!! #mylovelybabybump”
The couple were wed in Malibu in January 2009. In May 2011, Fergie told HollyScoop “Not right this second,” when asked if she’d be starting a family shortly after announcing her decision to take a break from the Black Eyed Peas. Duhamel previously told People Magazine, “We’ll go there at some point.”
Congrats to them both!
Congratulations are in order for former “General Hospital” and “General Hospital: Night Shift” actress Kent King and husband Christian Cardona, who welcomed their first child, Griffin King Cardona, on Thursday, December 27, 2012. “He is so sweet and yummy, and I’m so in love!” said King in a posting on Facebook. The newborn baby boy was born at 12:29 PM PT and weighed in at 8lbs 1oz, the actress told Soap Opera Network exclusively.
Last summer, King and Cardona celebrated the premiere of their online fan film “Y: The Last Man Rising,” which was based on the Vertigo comic book series “Y: The Last Man” that produced only 60 issues in the span of nearly five years (September 2002 to March 2008).
Former “Days of our Lives” star Heather Lindell (ex-Jan Spears) and husband Josh Boyd welcomed their first child, Desmond George, who was born on Monday, August 27. Desmond George weighed in at 6 ½ lbs.
Currently residing in Los Angeles, CA, Lindell appeared in the 2010 Tony Award Winning Broadway Musical “La Cage Aux Folles” with Harvey Fierstein and Kelsey Grammar. She can currently be seen in the independent film “That’s What She Said,” which was directed by Carrie Preston (“True Blood”).
Lindell posted the first picture of her baby boy on her Facebook page.
Former “One Life to Live” star Brandon Routh (ex-Seth Anderson) and wife Courtney Ford (“True Blood”) have welcomed their first child, reports People Magazine on their website. Leo James Routh, born Friday, August 10, weighed in at 8lbs. and measured 20 1/2 inches.
“We’re in awe … we can’t take our eyes off him!” the two said in a joint statement to People with Routh adding his wife is a “rockstar.”
The couple will celebrate their five-year wedding anniversary in November.
Since leaving “OLTL” in 2002, Routh became a household name in 2006 when he starred as Clark Kent in “Superman Returns.” Although he is not returning as the man in the blue tights when Warner Bros. Pictures releases “Man of Steel” on June 14, 2013, Routh can next be seen in the new CBS primetime comedy series “Partners.” Based on the lives of creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick as two life-long friends and business partners whose “bromance” is put to the test when one of them becomes engaged, “Partners” stars Michael Urie (“Ugly Betty”) as Louis and David Krumholtz (“Num3ers”) as Joe. Louis is “spontaneous, emotional and prone to exaggeration,” while Joe is an “accomplished architect who leads with his head and not his heart, especially in his love life.” Routh portrays Wyatt, a vegan nurse and Louis’ partner in life. “One Tree Hill’s” Sophia Bush stars as Ali, Joe’s new fiancé and a “sophisticated jewelry designer.”
“Partners” premieres Monday, September 24 at 8:30 PM ET/PT on the CBS Television Network.
