Previously on the real soap opera drama that is the current life of former General Hospital star, Steve Burton, he took to Instagram to announce that his wife, Sheree Burton is pregnant with someone else’s child and the two had separated after 23 years of marriage. Steve and Sheree have three children of their own. There was no reason given for their split at the time of Steve’s announcement, but now “sources” are running off to People to spill some details. According to sources, the couple had been “coasting” and grew apart. But sources added that their marriage was also affected by Steve getting fired from General Hospital after refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine So you see, getting pregnant with another dude isn’t that shocking when you think about how her ex was an anti-vaxxer, right?!
Steve played Jason Morgan on GH from 1991 to 2012, then returned to the show in 2017. But when he refused to follow COVID-19 protocols by getting vaccinated, he was dropped from the show. And that seemed to cause problems in his marriage. via People:
“Their lives were changed when he went through some upheaval and anger over what he considered his freedoms being in jeopardy,” a source tells PEOPLE exclusively. “He had to leave a show that he loved, which caused chaos in his life.”
According to the insider, Sheree had become “unhappy” leading up to the split and was looking for “something more.”
“Their lives have been in the coasting stage for a while,” the source says. “After a long marriage, it’s not that unusual.”
People reached out to the ex-couple’s reps for comment but heard nothing back. And the source had some more to say, adding that Steve and Sheree are focused on parenting their children–Makena, 18, Jack, 16, and Brooklyn, 7.
The source tells PEOPLE that “it was very strange for someone like Steve to announce this publicly, but the marriage has been just coexisting for a while.”
“They have grown apart but are doing everything to protect the children and keep things as normal as possible,” the insider adds.
If breaking up with an anti-vax idiot is followed by immediately getting pregnant, does that mean that Shailene Woodley is about to share some big news? I mean, she and Aaron Rodgers are reportedly finally done-done, so I guess it’s time for her own rebound pregnancy!
