Storms secretly tied the knot in June with fellow General Hospital actor Brandon Barash, her rep says. Barash, 33, played Johnny Zacchara on the long-running daytime series until April of this year.

The actress' pregnancy is big news for the couple, especially in light of her past struggles with endometriosis, which can affect fertility. "In the grand scheme of things, a lot more women go through this than I think people realize or talk about," she told Soap Opera Digest of her diagnosis in 2012.

Tweeting about her surprise baby news on Wednesday, Aug. 21, Storms shared a photo of her itty-bitty pregnant belly, which she captioned, "Bump alert. #thisisreallyhappening."

"Thanks to everyone for all the love!" she wrote to her followers. "Brandon and I are very very very excited about this new adventure."
