A real soap opera: the “General Hospital” star says his wife’s baby is not his

long”PolyclinicStar Steve Burton sparked real-life melodrama when he announced Wednesday that his wife Sheree is pregnant with someone else’s child and that they are separated.

Burton, who intermittently played Jason Morgan on “GH” for decades before he was fired from the show last fall for rejecting the COVID-19 vaccine, she wrote on her Instagram story:

“I wanted to clarify something. Sheree and I are separated. She recently announced that she is expecting her fourth child. The baby is not mine. We are still co-parents of our three beautiful children. We would appreciate the privacy right now. Very luv, Steve.” “

The couple married in 1999. Their children range from elementary school to adolescence.
