On GENERAL HOSPITAL, Britt is having zero luck finding a partner through Society Setups. But in real life, her portrayer, Kelly Thiebaud, is absolutely smitten with her new boyfriend! If you follow Thiebaud on Instagram, you know that she’s visited London several times over the past few months, and even spent some time in Italy and France. In a few of the photos she’s shared from her travels, Thiebaud is holding hands with someone, but hadn’t named her paramour. That all changed on July 26 when GH’s newest Emmy winner went Instagram official with her beau: PJ Harrison!
In the sweet post, Thiebaud shared a series of three photos. The first was a photo of PJ drinking at an outdoor café, the second was a selfie of the couple outdoors at night, and the third was a romantic image from a gondola ride along Venice’s Grand Canal from the couple’s April vacation in Italy. Tagging Harrison in the photos, Thiebaud wrote, “Seven months long-distance. Los Angeles and London. 5,437 miles. 8-hour time difference. Thousands of calls and texts. You’ve always been consistent.” The actress punctuated her caption with the infinity symbol, red heart, and fire flame emojis.
Instagram wasn’t the only place where Thiebaud was raving about her beau, either. On Twitter, the actress posted a “humble internet brag” about her boyfriend as well. “So far today, he walked to the pharmacy to get me tampons and a hot water bottle. Also came back with chips and a Nutella donut to make me happy. Now, he’s making me breakfast. And he does acts like these on a daily [basis]. I’m so lucky.”
Harrison was a co-founder of the City of Angels Football Club, a men’s soccer league that played in the San Fernando Valley. He also previously hosted THE TOTALLY FOOTBALL SHOW podcast alongside American soccer star and Olympian Cobi Jones, who was the director of football for City of Angels. When one follower asked Thiebaud to share the details of how she met her British boyfriend, the actress promised that she would do that “soon.” That one-word answer was also her reply when another follower commented that they hoped the long distance was over for the couple.
Please join us in wishing Thiebaud and Harrison all the best in their new relationship!
