Fans of GENERAL HOSPITAL star Kirsten Storms (Maxie) have been going wild congratulating the actress in the comments on her Instagram after seeing all the new photos she’s been sharing of her and boyfriend Elias Paul Reidy. And while she didn't initially use the B-word, a few days before Valentine's Day, the daytime star posted another pic of them together and used the hashtag "#boyfriendoftheyearaward!" Although as her #ThrowbackThursday post reveals, the pair have actually known each other for years, as you can see from this photo of them from an event in October of 2007!
Reidy is a musician who was once part of the band The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. He then teamed up with Brett Hellings to form the rock duo The Soul Shakers. And now he’s been spending a lot of time with Storms. In fact, he shared the same photo she did of their lunch together and captioned it: “One of the best lunch dates I’ve had in years."
GH fans know that Storms was previously married to Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny), and they divorced after nearly three years together. However, they have remained close friends and continue to co-parent their daughter, Harper, who recently turned four. Storms has also taken multiple leaves of absence from GH for personal reasons, and eventually confided that she suffers from depression, so it’s great to see her looking so happy! Keep scrolling down to see more pictures of Storms smiling and content in Reidy’s company!
