Greg Vaughan (Eric Brady, “Days of our Lives”), 40, and wife, model Touriya Haoud, 36, have decided to separate after nine years and three kids together – Jathan James, 6, Cavan Thomas, 4, and Landan Reid, 2. 

As we open our hearts full of love & sadness, 9 years together & 3 beautiful children, we have decided to amicably separate,” wrote the couple in a message posted on Vaughan’s Instagram page on Monday, April 14. They concluded their message stating, “With dear love for each other and our family, as parents first and foremost, we kindly ask our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time.” The couple married in June 2006.

Since announcing the separation, Vaughan has been posting messages on his Instagram using such hashtags as #life #marriage #forgiveness #foodforthought along with a quote from the bible.

Rumors had been swirling all weekend and now Soap Opera Digest is reporting that former “All My Children” actor, and “The Price is Right” male model, Robert Scott Wilson (ex-Pete Cortlandt) has joined the cast of NBC’s “Days of our Lives” as a recast Ben Rogers. He replaces daytime newcomer Justin Gaston, who in real-life is married to “The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman).

Per the publication, Wilson had already been on set filming in January as the series celebrated its two year renewal by NBC. As a result, Wilson’s first airdate isn’t expected until at least next month due to the soaps four to five months ahead filming schedule – Gaston began filming on the series in mid-October and didn’t air until late February.

Corday Productions, which produces “DAYS,” has not confirmed any casting changes per its policy.

Moss, who departed CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” in September 2012 after portraying the widely popular role of Ridge Forrester for more than 25 years, joins “The Bay” as former Bay City District Attorney, John Blackwell. Evans (Adrienne Johnson Kiriakis, “DAYS”) will portray Katherine Blackwell, John’s wife. While at first it would appear that John and Katherine are in town to reconnect with their son, Damian Blackwell (Erik Fellows), the power couple are in actuality seeking vengeance against the Garrett family, who they share a hidden past.
