Maurice Benard Shares a Special Message to His Mother on Her Birthday


To honor his mother’s birthday, GENERAL HOSPITAL star Maurice Benard (Sonny) shared a vintage picture of Martha and himself from back in the day when her hair was a little bigger and he was a lot smaller! “I remember my mother used to put me in outfits that I really hated,” the actor confided. “This one in particular, I felt like Frankenstein in the shoes. The socks were way too tight and came up to my thighs. The suit was way too itchy and a hat… that’s all I’m gonna say about that.”

However, questionable wardrobe choices aside, Benard knew just how much his mother loved and supported him and continues to do so to this day. “The one thing I will say about my mother is she protected me like no other,” he declared. “She loves me with all of her heart. And if I ever needed her for anything — and I mean anything — she was right there for me. Happy birthday mother. I love you very much.”

Well, we think Benard looks just darling in his snazzy little outfit, and his beautiful mother looks like a glamorous movie star! Please join us in sending Mrs. Benard special birthday wishes — hope it’s a great one!
