Fantastic news and confirmed! Real life couple and fan favorites Alexa Havins (Arabella “Babe” Carey Chandler) and Justin Bruening (Jamie Martin) will make a return to ABC’s daytime drama All My Children this September! ABC Daytime made the official announcement this morning.  Many soap fans have wanted to see Alexa and Justin return to the Pine Valley canvas before the show goes off the ABC Television Network on September 23rd, and it is now a reality.

Havins was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in 2005 for her role as Babe Chandler, whom she played from 2003 to 2007.  She is now starring on the hit STARZ television series, Torchwood: Miracle Day. In 2008 the character of Babe suffered injuries after a series of tornadoes hit Pine Valley, which ended in her death.

Bruening took over the role of Jamie Martin, Tad and Brooke’s son on All My Children, in 2003. When he departed the show in 2007, his character left to work at an AIDS clinic in Africa.


Both actors will return in several episodes, scheduled to begin airing this September.  When On- Air On-Soaps spoke with AMC’s Bobbie Eakes (Krystal) during the red carpet at the recent Daytime Emmys in Vegas, Eakes mentioned she would love to see Alexa return as her daughter, Babe before the series ends it run on television.  And now she has gotten her wish!

    That’s nice of them to remember AMC. Seeing how Babe died on the show, I guess Alexa will be a ghost?


  2. Sarah says:

    She better be a ghost. I’m sorry but All My Children you can not ignore that Annie & JR were loved.


  3. ethel says:

    i wonder how this will work with babe being dead – maybe david hayward has her hidden somewhere like he has dixie…………


  4. Brian T says:

    Alexa is one of those actors I knew would go far. She should have won the Emmy when she was nominated. Maybe David kept Babe alive too and kept her from her mother and family.


  5. Torrey says:

    I always loved Alexa in this role. She was the one and only “True” Babe for me. I’m curious as to how they are going to bring her back. I’m so over the ghost thing….don’t even bother. Just goes to show you, when you have a hugely popular character, it’s always best for them to just leave town, instead of always trying to go for shock value and kill them off.


  6. Leina says:

    I am so disappointed that they are bringing back Babe as JR’s one and only true love and savior. REALLY???? I along with many many others are so confused over the JR and Annie relationship and how it was just dropped like a rock. The writers showed that JR and Annie were in love. JR was the only one in the end to show Annie any compassion before she had to go to Oak Haven. It has truly been a sad ride for all the Jannie fans out there. We all were waiting for a loving reunion with these two and yet again we get crapped on.
