Soap fans remember Valdez as Trey Mitchell on GENERAL HOSPITAL, who was the son of Joe Scully, Jr. and Connie Falconeri. He was introduced as the producer of Kristina’s reality series, MOB PRINCESS, and he conned the young woman into marrying him as a storyline for the show. Eventually, she fell for him for real, but after a car crash, Trey was left brain dead, and Connie had him unplugged. After leaving GH in 2013, Valdez went on to play Carlito Solano, Jr. on GRACELAND. His wife, Candice, is a popular host on Radio Disney.
“I’m so excited to introduce you all to the newest Radio Disney listener!” she posted. “Baby Enzo Valdez is here! Thanks to everyone for all the love and support. I am so proud to be his mama! We have been through so much already. He has taught me so much and showed me a level of strength and patience I never knew I had. The word love will never be the same!”
