A year ago, GENERAL HOSPITAL star Laura Wright (Carly) wasn’t even thinking about romance, but everything changed when she was reintroduced to fellow actor Wes Ramsey (Peter) at a Daytime Emmy party in April of 2017! “This time last year, I certainly never imagined I’d be living with my boyfriend,” she confided to Soaps In Depth. “I couldn’t even imagine what having a boyfriend would look like!”
After going through a divorce a few years ago, Wright admitted she was “in a dark place” and fought to find happiness, and now she’s discovered new love with Ramsey, who she used to work with on GUIDING LIGHT where she played Cassie and he was Sam. In fact, the two lovebirds are now sharing a place together in West Hollywood!
“I’m not 25,” Wright laughed. “I didn’t need to sleep on it. And we know how lucky we are to have this, so there’s a lot of gratitude. There’s a lot of respect… and a lot of self-love. I don’t need him to complete me. So our time together is just about enjoying the moment and not trying to fix each other.”
The GH star also shares a house with her kids, John (17) and Lauren (19), in Santa Ynez, but loves spending quality time with her new beau. “We love to hike and we love the ocean, sunsets, and going to the movies,” she revealed. “And right now, we’re reading The Fountainhead — he reads to me every morning. Yeah, he’s that guy!”
With all the stress and drama of real life, including work, bills, and everything else, it’s important to find and appreciate those special moments together. “We still have hurdles, walls, and things life throws at us,” Wright declared. “When I have 10 other things I think I need to do, I make the decision — ‘I’m going to sit here and listen to you read me this story.’ To slow down, be in the moment, and be together is a choice Wes and I make every day.”
