GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Maurice Benard Celebrates Buddy the Goat’s Birthday


Please join us in wishing a very happy birthday to a special member of the GENERAL HOSPITAL family — Buddy the Goat! “On this day a goat was born that changed the atmosphere,” declared Maurice Benard (Sonny) on Instagram of his popular pet. “Instagram was never the same! Happy birthday, Buddy the Goat!”

Buddy has been delighting Benard’s Instagram followers for a while now, but as the actor confided to Soaps In Depth, he had to give the Nigerian dwarf goat a little break from the spotlight. “The problem is he doesn’t do what I tell him to when we’re shooting,” he revealed.

Benard added a hashtag to his birthday post that says Buddy #DoesntLikeBurton, but we can’t understand how in the world that could even be possible! And in the comments, Ava and Grace Scarola, who play Sonny’s daughter, Avery, on GH shared: “Happy Birthday, Buddy! Can’t wait to meet you!” Benard promised they could visit “anytime” and now we can’t wait to see that happen because the cuteness when those two little girls meet Buddy the Goat is going to be off the charts!

Oh, by the way, Buddy has his own Instagram page you can follow for even more fun pics and video! And for more on your favorite GH stars, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
