Brandon Barash Returned From Israel to the Sweetest Welcome Home From Daughter Harper — See the Beautiful Video!


Shortly before America celebrated the Fourth of July, daytime star Brandon Barash (Stefan, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; ex-Johnny, GENERAL HOSPITAL) left the country with his family on a vacation to Israel. The actor spent over a week seeing the sights, including a dip in the Dead Sea and a visit to the Ein Gedi nature reserve to see the animals and waterfalls, but he was happy to be home. And he wasn’t the only one, either — Barash shared an absolutely beautiful video of his arrival at the airport where his daughter with Kirsten Storms (Maxie, GH), Harper, rushes into his arms! “An unprecedented love between father and daughter calls for an unprecedented airport reunion,” he said. “This child has my heart and soul bottled up, and she wears it around her neck. Enjoy this footage from my mom’s and my phone… I cannot stop watching it.”

Harper clearly spent a lot of time making that “Welcome home, Daddy” sign, and she could barely stop hugging her father long enough to playfully tickle his ears and giggle. The love these two share is evident in every second of that video. In fact, before he left on his journey to Israel, Harper insisted that he take a couple of her things with him on his trip.
