Soap veteran Kiko Ellsworth (ex-Stan, GENERAL HOSPITAL; Jamal, PORT CHARLES) is going to be a first-time dad! Married since 2008 to actress/jewelry designer Christine Carlo (ex-Leticia, GH), the actor is thrilled to be embarking on this new phase of their lives. "It's a girl!" he tells Soaps In Depth. "The doctor said she's due September 2, but I vote that it's going to be on our wedding date of August 1 -- I want it to be on that date!"
While waiting for the blessed event, Ellsworth has plenty to keep him busy. He'll be spending the spring on the set of ABC Family's upcoming sci-fi drama, THE NINE LIVES OF CHLOE KING, where he's got a plum recurring role as the villain. "I think being a part of something like ABC Family is in total alignment with where my life is at," Ellsworth enthuses. Catch the series beginning Tuesday, June 14, at 9 p.m. EST.
