General Hospital: 5 Real Life Couples
Viewers tune in weekly to the popular daytime soap General Hospital (GH) for the intense drama, interesting storylines and to watch their favorite characters go through the roller coaster ride of falling in love. Sometimes the chemistry that two characters experience can be easily transferred into a real-life romance and, just like anybody else, many soap actors find true love while at work. Below is a list of some of our favorite soap opera characters on GH, who have shacked up in real life, and found some romance while working on a soap opera set. Unfortunately, not all of these couples are still together!
5. Kelly Monaco (Sam McCall) and Billy Miller (Jake Doe/Jason Morgan)
Now this real-life couple is clearly only in the initial stages of dating, according to Soap Digest. There has been speculation around the idea that GH stars Kelly Monaco and Billy Miller have been seeing each other for months now. The speculation ended when photos appeared of the two. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and photos were snapped of the two stars playing in the ocean on July 4th and celebrating Independence Day. While their Port Charles characters currently have no idea that they are married (and that Jake is actually Jason – the love of Sam’s life), it seems that for now, Monaco and Miller are enjoying each other’s company. Perhaps all this fun may lead to something bigger and brighter for Monaco and Miller in the future?
4. Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos) and Kristen Alderson (Kiki Jerome)
These two young soap stars met on the set of GH when Alderson joined the cast in January 2012. While she started on the show as Starr Manning, a reprise of her character on One Life to Live (OLTL), due to a dispute around ownership of characters (as the Hollywood entertainment company Prospect Parked owned the rights to OLTL storylines and characters, not ABC), she returned to the land of Port Charles in 2013 as Kiki Jerome. Embroiled in a three-way love triangle with Duell’s character (Michael Corinthos) and his on-screen brother Morgan, the two actors seemingly found love. Unfortunately, in October 2015, they split. Not to worry though — these two have remained good friends, so who knows what the future holds.
