Considering that Martha Madison (Marly Nelson-Foster, “The Bay,” ex-Belle Black, “Days of Our Lives,” ex-Elizabeth Webber, “General Hospital) married her husband, AJ Gilbert, back in 2007, the couple has no doubt heard the phrase, “So, when are you having kids?” a few thousand times. And now the pair has an answer!
For months, and in numerous articles, Soap Opera Network stated the following line: "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" both premiere on Monday, April 29 via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes. Well, the big day finally arrived and is now over and done with. So, we have to ask readers...how did you watch the soaps? Hulu, Hulu Plus or iTunes?
After months of anticipation, the day has finally arrived for the returns of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." Both soaps premiered today with brand new episodes via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes. As previously reported, the two soaps have been getting some love from Hulu starting with an email campaign on Friday and a weekend trip on the Hulu bar, which highlights several recent episodes of popular series airing on Hulu. Today, Hulu gave each series their own spot on the bar with positions #1 and #2, ahead of such staples as ABC's "Revenge" and "Once Upon A Time" or FOX's "Family Guy" and "American Dad."
In a new posting on his Facebook page, Michael Easton (ex-John McBain, "One Life to Live" and "General Hospital") says, "SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS...to my family of friends in their new venture. I know you're going to be a big hit..." The actors comments are understood to be in reference to the re-launches of both "OLTL" and "All My Children," which premiere today on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes.
According to a report in The New York Times, highlighting tomorrow's launch of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes, the gold standard publication revealed that Prospect Park, the company behind the new "AMC" and "OLTL," also holds the licensing rights to "General Hospital" in the event ABC decides to cancel the soap too!
When "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" debut with brand new episodes on Monday, April 29 on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes, they will have the full support of CBS Daytime. Angelica McDaniel, Senior Vice President, CBS Daytime, wishes Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz, whose Prospect Park licensed the two soaps from ABC in 2011, nothing but the best. She relays via Soap Opera Network, "Congratulations and best of luck on the success. Your success is our success and vice versa. And it’s just a thrilling new experience and I look forward to seeing where the journey takes you."
"Due to unforeseen circumstances the Jacksonville, Nashville and Cleveland shows have been cancelled. Refunds are available at the point of purchase," is the message posted on the official website of A Tribute to Pine Valley, which has held events around the country honoring the 41 year life and history of ABC's "All My Children."
Michael Muhney has announced on Twitter that's he's signed a new contract with CBS' "The Young and the Restless" that will keep him in Genoa City as his character, Adam Newman, through at least June 2015. In a tweet to his more than 50,000 followers the actor commented, "Lots of 'Adam' to come. #gameON."
On Monday, April 29, "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" debut with all new episodes on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes. As part of its promotional campaign, which included an email alert to millions of Hulu Plus subscribers yesterday, Hulu has given both soaps the infamous Hulu bar treatment with a link to the "They're Back" video highlighting that each show is "Back & Better Than Ever."
Earlier today, millions of Hulu Plus subscribers received an email from Hulu promoting the returns of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." In the email, subscribers were provided with a link to the trailer highlighting the stars while at the beautiful photo shoot in Sleepy Hollow, NY earlier this year.

A character proclaims, "Pine Valley lost a part of its soul that night, but today the sun shines bright." That day in particular is Monday, April 29, when "All My Children" premieres with all new episodes via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes with Pine Valley's citizens having picked things up five years after that traumatic night Adam Chandler (David Canary) and Brooke English (Julia Barr) celebrated their engagement and a shot went off. Fans will quickly be able to jump right back into the soap where "cute, sexy, action and adventure, romance and sex" may be a simple way to summarize the storytelling on any given daytime soap, but on "AMC" things are just all the better.
