GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Kiko Ellsworth (ex-Stan; Jamal, PORT CHARLES) and his wife Christina Carlo (ex-Leticia) welcomed their first child, daughter Zen Satya Ellsworth, on August 28 at 4:35 p.m. “Satya means truth in Sanskrit,” the proud papa explains.
What has the experience of parenthood been like? “I don’t know how people answer that question with words!” he offers. “The feelings, the emotions, the expansion of my spirit and vision for my life… I’m literally not the same person.” While adjusting to early morning feedings is daunting for most, Ellsworth has a unique perspective. He’s already been up at 4 a.m. for a year practicing Sadhana yoga. “It’s really been a pleasure for me,” he says. “I’ve been able to focus on my meditation and writing and creativity early in the morning, but now I’m getting up at 4 a.m. for the baby, and it’s a gift that keeps on giving.”
With his work as The Rogue on ABC Family’s THE NINE LIVES OF CHLOE KING now wrapped, Ellsworth is grateful for being at home right now and to bond with his family. “She sleeps on my chest every morning,” he sighs.
