Brandon Barash and Kirsten Storms secretly got married earlier this summer ... and she's now pregnant, according to the General Hospital stars!
The news comes as a shock because Storms, 29, has battled endometriosis, but also because the baby’s father is her former co-star, Barash.
“We’re having a little girl in January,” the proud dad-to-be revealed in an interview with People. ”It’s been the most amazing few months of our lives.”
“We kept things quiet because of everything that can go wrong during the first trimester,” Barash, 33, explains. “Kirsten did have a rocky [time]."
With her medical problems, "We were in and out of the hospital.”
It was a rough start to a very welcome surprise, he notes.
“We talked about wanting kids and Kirsten was told she could try hormone therapy. 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!”
TMI ... but still fantastic news for the newlyweds.
“A couple of weeks ago she wasn’t really showing, but now her curves have just taken over,” the actor says. “It makes me love her even more."
"It feels like a fairytale ... we are so lucky.”
