Soap Opera’s 8 Hottest Off-Screen Hook Ups

Press Association

Soap opera characters hook up all the time on-screen. Some are hot, some are not, but all tend to be quite interesting at the end of day. It’s no secret that many daytime drama fans love tuning into their favorite shows because of the romance, the love affairs, and the super hot couples. However, life can sometime imitate art, and while many soap opera stars are busy rehearsing their lines, working on their scenes, and frolicking on set with cast mates – some of them are hooking up too! Below are eight of the hottest soap opera off-screen hook ups.

8. Chad Duell and Kristen Alderson

Love certainly began to imitate art in early 2012 when these good-looking soap stars hooked up on the set of General Hospital (GH). Duell’s character (Michael Corinthos) managed to steal Alderson’ character (Kiki Jerome) from his brother Morgan and love was in the air in Port Charles. Meanwhile off-screen, these two young soap stars fell in love. They posted cute Instagram pictures of each other all cuddled up, did the awards’ show circuit scene, and enjoyed parties together. Sadly, the relationship only lasted until 2015. Alderson let her fans know about the split via Twitter.

7. Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa

This hook up is still happening and made the list because of the hotness factor. Both stars are now in their mid-40s and are still incredibly good looking and madly in love with each other! As the story goes, Kelly Ripa met Mark Consuelos in 1995 on the set of All My Children and the duo eloped a year later. Twenty years later and these two stars still enjoy a successful marriage. It seems the honeymoon stage never ended for these two as they continue to gush about each other in the media and over social media. In a September 2016 interview with ET online, Consuelos said he is still crazy about her. After two decades of love and marriage, these former soap stars still have incredible chemistry.

6. Casey Deidrick and Molly Burnett

These hot young Days of Our Lives (DOOL) stars enjoyed a whirlwind hook up in 2009 when Casey Deidrick played Chad DiMera and Molly Burnett played Melanie Jonas. It was not serious by any stretch of the imagination, but the two had a fun fling that lasted about one year. Their hot hook up ended in 2010 and the two managed to remain extremely professional with one another on the DOOL set. They were even able to work together with no issues when their characters Melanie and Chad had a hot hook up of their own in 2012.

5. Shawn Christian and Arianne Zucker

There was no hotter DOOL couple, than Dr. Daniel Jonas and Nicole Walker in Salem. Sadly, Jonas passed away in early 2016 leaving poor Nicole to mourn him and eventually turn to Deimos Kiriakis. Good news for Zucker, she still gets to hook up with Christian in real-life as these two are a solid couple off-screen. This hook up really has it all! They are both good looking and talented, but the best part is that they both have huge hearts and work to make a difference through an organization Zucker created with her brother called, Arrow Heart. They hooked up on the DOOL set in 2014 and have been happy ever since.

4. Bryan Craig and Kelly Thiebaud

While both of these soap stars are no longer on GH (Britt Westbourne left Port Charles in 2014 and Morgan Corinthos seemingly died during an explosion last year), their hot hook up hits the list at number four. The two met on the GH set in 2013, despite not having many scenes, storylines, or working time together. What they did have is chemistry, which led to an engagement in 2015. Sadly, the two broke up in 2016, ending their engagement and three-year relationship.

3. Casey Moss and True O’Brien

Is there anything hotter than watching your rock and roll boyfriend play gigs with his band? Not sure if there is! She’s a former Ford Model and he’s a former James Tudor underwear model, so it makes sense these two DOOL stars hooked up after they met on the set in 2014. Their two characters (Paige Larson and J.J. Deveraux) had quite a thing of their own on screen. While Paige exited the show in 2015, O’Brien and Moss are still going strong with the cute couple posting photos on Instagram together and O’Brien supporting Moss’ band “Eyes of One” by attending his performances.

2. Brandon Barash and Kirsten Storms

While on-screen Johnny Zacchara and Maxie Jones were never a couple, these two GH stars met on the set and had a whirlwind hook up in real life. They confirmed their relationship in 2013 and then secretly wed in the summer of that year. In early January 2014, the couple had a sweet baby girl named Harper. The bad news is, in April of last year, the two announced they were getting a divorce. The good news? The split does seem like a friendly one, and if you peruse their Instagram accounts you will see just how well they are doing when it comes to co-parenting their daughter and ensuring they still do things as a family.

1. Justin Hartley and Chrishell Stause

These two soap opera stars (now primetime star status for Justin thanks to his role on This is Us) didn’t meet on the set like some of the other couples on this list. He’s a former soap star from the Young and the Restless (Y&R) and Passions, while Stause has had gigs on DOOL and the Y&R as well. They began dating in 2014 and were so smitten with each other that Hartley popped the question last summer. While they once dined and danced at soap opera awards shows and galas, they are now walking the red carpet for more high-level Hollywood events. The two were seen looking hotter than ever at the 74th Annual Golden Globes.
