Soon to be a party of four! GENERAL HOSPITAL alum Andrea Bogart (ex-Abby) and her husband, Erik Almås, are adding to their family! The former GH star and the Norwegian photographer are already parents to 3-year-old Emerie — and will welcome their second child in May!
Bogart shared the exciting news on Instagram by recreating her first baby announcement. In the first photo, she and Almås are standing in front of a restored biplane with a child’s ride-on toy plane off to the side. And in the second picture, the couple is standing in front of that same vintage aircraft with the toy plane next to them, but this time little Emerie is posing along with her parents!
“We sure do like adventures in our family,” wrote Bogart, who is now a yoga instructor. “We’ve been truly blessed with another great one. Coming the end of May 2021, baby Almås will jump aboard! Our sweet little Emerie is delighted she’s going to be a big sister. It’s been a long year at home and a heck of a ride to get here. We feel the miracles of life and share our love, faith, and prayers with anyone trying to get here too.”
Bogart joined the GH cast back in 2010 as a stripper who was friends with Sam and eventually started dating Michael. She exited the canvas just a year and a half later when Abby was tragically killed in a freak accident when a crane fell on her. Since leaving daytime, Bogart has appeared in several primetime shows like ZAC AND MIA and HAWAII FIVE-O, and TV movies like Kidnapped By A Classmate, which aired on Lifetime last year. She’s also been building her business as a yoga instructor, and enjoying being Emerie’s mom!
“Of all the places we’ve been and adventures we’ve had,” Bogart concluded, “being parents is truly the most epic!”
Congratulations to the Almås family, and best wishes!
