Longtime “General Hospital” star Steve Burton sparked real melodrama when he announced on Wednesday that his wife Sheree was pregnant with someone else’s child and that they were estranged.
Burton, who played Jason Morgan on and off on “GH” for decades before being fired from the show last fall for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine, wrote on his Instagram story:
“I wanted to clarify something. Sheree and I are separated. She recently announced that she is expecting her 4th child. The child is not mine. We are still co-parenting our three beautiful children. We would appreciate privacy at this time. Lots of love, Steve.
The couple married in 1999. Their children range from high school age to teens.
