Fam­ily Af­fair

ABC Soaps In Depth - - Sound Off -

While GH fans of­ten marvel at how well Kirsten Storms (Maxie) co-par­ents daugh­ter Harper, 4, with ex-hubby Bran­don Barash (exJohnny), the ac­tress wouldn’t have it any other way. “Be­cause it’s what’s best for her,” Storms in­sists.

“It’s im­por­tant to us that Harper get the best pos­si­ble ex­pe­ri­ence grow­ing up — and that means see­ing her mom and dad in the same room with each other, fre­quently. She’s at an age where she’s very into the idea of fam­ily and play­ing houses. And how­ever she sees fam­ily, I know that in­cludes Bran­don and my­self. She couldn’t be hap­pier than when we’re all to­gether.” Storms isn’t sug­gest­ing that it’s al­ways easy. “We are di­vorced. Some­thing went wrong, ob­vi­ously, in our re­la­tion­ship for that to hap­pen,” she notes. “But we work through it be­cause we care about her enough. I’m se­ri­ous when I say it’s just be­cause we each love Harper more than any­thing else in the world that we can swal­low our pride some­times when some­thing comes up.”

Co-par­ent­ing isn’t as easy as Storms makes it look!
