Please join us in congratulating Brandon Barash (Jake, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; ex-Johnny, GENERAL HOSPITAL), who is engaged to his girlfriend, Isabella Devoto! “How was your weekend?” The actor captioned a video of the joyous moment on Instagram, urging fans to “Watch till the end!”
The video starts innocently enough with Barash and Devoto posing for a family photo along with Harper, his daughter with ex-wife and former GH castmate Kirsten Storms (Maxie). With the desert and city behind them, the trio quickly get the shot. After Harper scurries off, Barash suddenly slips in the dirt and falls to the ground, so Devoto rushes to his side. As Harper comforts her dad, Devoto tries to examine his ankle. Barash shifts onto his knees and asks his girlfriend to stand up as someone hands him a little blue box.
“No!” Devoto cries out in disbelief as she bursts into happy tears. Harper is all smiles as she sits next to her dad and he opens the box. When Barash suggests that Harper show her the ring, the seven-year-old pushes him and insists, “No, you do it, you big silly pants!” Then Harper gives hew new stepmom-to-be a quick hug as Barash pops the question.
“I imagine my life without you and it sucks,” Barash declared, holding the ring in one hand and Devoto’s hand in the other. “So I want nothing more in this life than to be your husband.” Devoto leans down to hug him, but can’t stop the tears from flowing. “She’s crying, I think it’s a no,” Barash teased. Harper is crying too, as Barash finally places the diamond engagement ring on Devoto’s finger.
And at the conclusion, Barash had a special treat for his daughter, who he credits with helping bring them together. “I had no idea we’d end up here,” he said, “but we’re here because of you.” Harper squeals as she hugs Devoto and declares, “I’m so happy for you two!” Then Barash presents his little girl with her own diamond, in the form of diamond earrings.
Then it’s time for a big group hug as everyone gets swept up in the emotion of it all. The comments naturally filled up with congratulations and well-wishes from fans, friends, and his castmates from DAYS and GH. Storms also shared her best… while still teasing her ex. “I’m happy for you both — I still feel more happiness for Isa, because I like her more than you,” she joked. “Ya did good, Brandon. Congratulations.”
