LOS ANGELES, April 6 (UPI) -- General Hospital co-stars Brandon Barash and Kirsten Storms are headed for divorce.
The 36-year-old actor and 31-year-old actress announced their split after nearly three years of marriage in an interview with Soap Opera Digest.
"We are splitting due to the cliché irreconcilable differences, but we're splitting amicably," Barash said, stressing their number one priority is their 2-year-old daughter, Harper.
"We have every intention of remaining a family through this and successfully co-parenting our kid and retaining a friendship in the efforts of raising her in a healthy environment," he added.
Barash and Storms play Johnny Zacchara and Maxie Jones on General Hospital and started dating in 2013. The couple married in a secret ceremony the same year and welcomed Harper in 2014.
"We went to therapy for a long time, trying to figure out how to communicate better with each other," Storms revealed. "It's not anything that we dislike about each other."
"We are getting along, and I would say enjoying each other's company more now that we don't have the pressure of what comes with a relationship added on to that," she added. "I think Brandon and I are really looking forward to getting our friendship with each other back."
Barash and Storms will attend the General Hospital Fantasy Weekend April 9 and 10 in New York and New Jersey as planned. The pair said they are "super-excited" for the event and denied any "awkward" interactions will happen.
Barash played Jaime on Gilmore Girls before joining General Hospital in 2007. Storms, meanwhile, joined the ABC soap opera in 2005 after a lengthy run as Belle Black on Days of Our Lives.
