‘She recently announced that she’s expecting her 4th child. The child is not mine,’ he added.

‘We are still co-parenting our three beautiful kids. We would appreciate privacy at this time. Much luv, Steve,’ he concluded.

The split also came months after it was revealed he was fired from his longtime role as Jason Morgan on the soap opera General Hospital, for refusing to comply with their COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
