General Hospital

Welcome Home, Maxie: Kirsten Storms’ Journey Back To Port Charles

Earlier this year when beloved General Hospital (GH) star Kirsten Storms took her second leave of absence from the soap in the last 12 months, she seemed to disappear from the social media scene and with good reason.

The actress admitted that she suffers from severe depression, which seemed to prompt her hiatus as she took time for herself to recover after an emotional time that included a divorce from Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny).

However, Storms slowly began re-emerging on Twitter and Instagram as it became clear she was doing better.

Some pics just showed the back of her head as 3-year-old daughter, Harper, pushed her on a park swing.

Other shots seemed to show her coming out of the dark with images of sunlight across her face as she told us “Good morning.”

Let us also not forget that Storms and Emme Rylan are BFFs off screen just like they are on, and her Instagram illustrates that.

Take a look at some of her best snaps from the last few months, ending with a surprise as Maxie is finally home in Port Charles with a new look and a new attitude.

She told me I would “absolutely” fit in the infant swing. #threegoingonthirteen
