When her GENERAL HOSPITAL alter ego of Carly Corinthos became pregnant on the soap, some fans naturally began to wonder if actress Laura Wright was pregnant in real life. But she took to social media to inform them that her baby bump is completely 100% fictional! “Oh, I love this man,” she posted to Instagram with a photo of her and real-life love Wes Ramsey (Peter), “but we are not pregnant! Only Carly! Thank you for loving and supporting us, though!” However, it seems some fans are still having trouble believing her because as Carly’s pregnancy has developed, some continue to suspect the actress is hiding a real-life pregnancy. So in July, Wright again responded to a fan to insist: “I am not pregnant. Not even a little bit. Ha!”
GH fans also jumped to the same wrong conclusion back in September of 2018 when Wright randomly tweeted about a particular food craving. “On a different note, why am I craving french toast?” she mused at the time. “I never eat french toast!” But by the following day, Wright had gotten wind of the rumors, and quickly shut them down. “Hey guys, I’m not pregnant,” she announced. “I was just craving french toast. That’s all.” And she added a hashtag to say “#stillam.” And unfortunately, by the end of the weekend, Wright still reported: “Still no french toast.” What does it take to get this woman some french toast?!
Wright married her husband, John, back in October of 1995, and the couple had two children together, Lauren, 19, and John, 17. But in April of 2016, she publicly announced that she and John had been separated for over a year and were officially divorcing. Just over a year later, Wright then went public with her new romance with Ramsey, whom she had originally met many years ago when they were both castmembers on the CBS sudser GUIDING LIGHT.
While Ramsey is now a part of Wright’s family, spending New Year’s with the extended clan and going along with Wright and her kids on vacation to Turks and Caicos, the pair are not starting a family of their own together. Any baby bump you see on Carly is simply a prop from the wardrobe department, not the real thing.
