It’s been a while since GENERAL HOSPITAL alum Julie Berman (ex-Lulu) has been active on social media, but it was worth it because she just shared a video on Instagram that revealed a tremendous surprise she’s been keeping from her fans — she was pregnant and just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Asher Dean! “Surprise!” she shared.
Using the “1 Second Everyday” app, Berman put together an amazing series of clips that stars back on May 9, 2018 where her husband, Michael Grady, pops a champagne bottle open, then shows off a couple of positive ClearBlue pregnancy tests on June 14, followed by a shot of her first sonogram appointment on July 25. You can watch her baby bump grow over time and watch people’s reactions to the happy news culminating in Asher’s birth on Feb. 18, 2019!
After roles on 7TH HEAVEN and ONCE AND AGAIN, Berman broke out as Lulu Spencer on GH, making her first appearance in October of 2005. After earning two Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Younger Actress and one for Outstanding Supporting Actress, she said goodbye to daytime and the role was recast with Emme Rylan. Berman then went on to appear in primetime series like TWO AND A HALF MEN, JANE THE VIRGIN, CASUAL, and CHICAGO MED. She and Grady were married in 2008, and this is their first child.
Congratulations to the entire happy family, and hopefully Berman will be back on social media now so we can enjoy tons and tons of beautiful baby pictures as we watch Asher grow up!
