If a character becomes pregnant, it is common for fans to wonder if the portrayer is also expecting in real life. This happened to Laura Wright. She plays the role of Carly Corinthos on “General Hospital.” When it was first revealed that her alter ego was pregnant, viewers immediately wondered the same thing.

It captioned, “Oh, I love this man but we are not pregnant! Only Carly!” Wright also took the time to thank fans for all the love and support.
