Once upon a time on General Hospital (GH), Michael was the baby everyone wanted (and couldn’t stop talking about).
First, Tony (Brad Maule) thought he was the dad, mainly because Carly told him he was.
Then Jason (Steve Burton) pretended to be, mainly because Carly told him to. AJ eventually discovered the tot was his and forced Carly into marriage. Which led to her sleeping with Sonny (Maurice Benard), and the rest is dysfunctional family history.
He’s Michael Corinthos III now, and now it’s Michael’s (Chad Duell) turn to have fathered the baby at the center of yet another hurricane.
But did he really? Is Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) child even his to begin with? Over 6,000 fans ran a make-shift paternity test:
She Gets Around
Not on you life, 89% are convinced. We call shenanigans! Nelle turned up just a little too conveniently pregnant for this to have been the oopise she’s claiming. Michael was done with her and then, suddenly, it’s… not so fast!
Plus, Carly (Laura Wright) couldn’t turn her back on her own grandchild. So now Nelle had to be a part of the Corinthos’ family’s life’s forever!
Not if the baby isn’t Michael’s! Nelle could have easily had a one night stand with the first tall, sandy-haired, chubby cheeked guy she bumped into, and counted on enough of a similarity to get by. Or she could have gone the sperm bank route and hand-picked the right candidate.
And then there’s always embryo stealing. Just ask Britt (Kelly Thibaud). Or Valentin (James Patrick Stuart). Maybe Lulu (Emme Rylan) might have yet another child by the time all this is over!
Stuck in the Middle With You
It would be too easy if the baby isn’t Michael’s, 11% of you fire back. Then the story could just end neatly. And what kind of soapy fun would that be?
