Longtime General Hospital fans remember that Maxie had a heart transplant as a child. Even though she had the scar surgically removed, she still presumably needs to take anti-rejection drugs every day. This, alone, would make her a bad candidate for pregnancy.

However, Lulu (Emme Rylan) and Dante saw nothing wrong with asking Maxie (Kirsten Storms) to be their surrogate. Maxie lost that baby, but she accidentally got pregnant with Georgie, her daughter with Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). Then she purposefully got pregnant with James, her son with Nathan (Ryan Paevey).
Now Maxie may be accidentally pregnant again, by Peter (Wes Ramsey). Over 2,000 fans have some pretty strong opinions regarding the possibility.

American Horror Story
Almost half of you, 49%, are horrified by the thought. Maxie can barely take care of the kids she already has. Georgie lives with Spinelli and Ellie, while James is… wherever Danny, Scout, Avery, Donna, and Leo are most of the time. Maxie is a pretty crappy parent. And Peter is a very, very crappy person. There is no way this won’t go wrong.
Everything Depends on Execution
Then again, 39% of General Hospital fans are adopting a wait and see attitude. They want to see how the story is written before they weigh in with a thumbs up or down. After all, maybe having his child will finally force Maxie to face just what kind of a person Peter is. And it would force Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Anna (Finola Hughes) to be grandmothers to a pair of siblings. That should be… something.
More the Merrier
Only 12% think Maxie is a great mom and this is just what she needs. Maxie didn’t have a family growing up – although poor Mac (John J. York) tried his very, very best with all the children dumped into his lap – and she was cheated out of one with Nathan. She deserves to finally get one. General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC.
