Some newer viewers and even a few longtime ones have been asking questions regarding the paternity of GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Ben, so we figured we’d help folks remember how this all went down!
First, the facts: Ben is not the son of Dante and Britt, no matter what the devious doc is telling people! The baby is actually Dante and Lulu’s child. As of now, the only people who actually know that are Britt, Obrecht and Brad.
It just so happened that when Britt needed a baby in order to land Patrick, Dante and Lulu were attempting to have one via their surrogate, Maxie. That, you may recall, didn’t end particularly well, as Maxie miscarried their child and then got pregnant with Spinelli’s baby!
Britt, however, had better luck. She got a baby and at least briefly the guy. But from the beginning, smart viewers suspected that she’d stolen one of Dante and Lulu’s fertilized embryos… and they were right!
With a little help from Brad, Britt managed to impregnate herself with Dante and Lulu’s baby. But as of right now, what everyone believes is that Britt only used Dante’s sperm sample. After all, you’ll recall that Dante and his wife are under the mistaken impression that their remaining embryos were destroyed.
So while Dante now knows that he’s Ben’s father, there’s still a major bombshell waiting to explode. How will Nikolas react when he finds out that Britt’s “confession” was really just another in a string of deceptions?
