New mom, Kirsten Storms (Maxie) announced via her Twitter account tonight that she is returning from her maternity leave to return to work at General Hospital next week! As daytime fans know, Kirsten and her husband Brandon Barash (Ex-Johnny, GH), welcomed their daughter Harper Rose into the world in early January.
Storms tweeted: “Just spoke with @valentinifrank. Very excited to return to work next week. I wonder what Maxie has been up to on her vacation…”
GH has been missing one of its most beloved characters on the Port Charles canvas since Maxie left town to “find herself” after losing custody of her daughter in a very dramatic court custody case. The Judge ruled that bio-dad Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) would have sole custody, and that Maxie had been denied visitation rights to see her own daughter. The Judge also said that he would consider looking back into the visitation issue after six months. Next, Spinelli left town with baby Georgie and his girlfriend Ellie (Emily Wilson) when she got a job in Portland.
Shortly after, Maxie also decided to get out of Port Charles to have some time to figure out what’s next in her life after all the lies she told surrounding her pregnancy and the birth of her child, and the heartbreak it caused Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu (Emme Rylan).
So, what do you think will happen when Maxie return to Port Charles? Will she find a new love? Are you happy to hear that Kirsten Storms is on her way back to GH? Comment below!
