Congratulations to GENERAL HOSPITAL alum Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny) who is showing off his gorgeous new girlfriend, Morgan Mitchell! The actor shared a pic with the beauty on his Instagram quoting lyrics from the song “It’s Always Been You” by Ray LaMontagne. “Since the first your eyes found mind; It was all at once I knew; It’s been you, it’s always been you; It’s always been you.”
Mitchell, who is a personal trainer in Los Angeles, posted her own montage of images of her and Barash looking cozy, including a kiss on the cheek. “Soulmate — a person with whom you have an immediate connection the moment you meet,” she wrote. “A connection so strong that you are drawn to them in a way you have never experienced before. As this connection develops over time, you experience love so deep, strong, and complex, that you begin to doubt that you have ever truly loved anyone prior. I love you, Brandon.”
Barash was engaged to ALL MY CHILDREN actress Natalie Hall (Colby) in 2011, and in 2013, revealed that he and GH co-star Kirsten Storms (Maxie) had gotten married. The couple welcomed their daughter, Harper, in 2014, but in spring of 2016, announced that they were filing for divorce.
The exes remained friends, doing a wonderful job of co-parenting their daughter. And while Storms has been sharing photos on social media of her new boyfriend, the only lady on Barash’s Instagram was little Harper. However, that has changed now as he’s introducing fans to the new woman in his life. And while some fans who had been hoping Barash and Storms could work it out were disappointed and expressed those feelings online, the majority are very happy to see Barash with love in his life once again.
