Kristina Cassadine is now a mama! Former 'General Hospital' star Jaime Ray Newman took to Instagram recently to announce the birth of her baby daughter that she had with husband Guy Nattiv last week. The baby, named Alma Ness Newman Nattiv, was born to the couple after years of trying via a surrogate. The 40-year-old star who won hearts on 'General Hospital' broke the news through a heartwarming post. Newman had earlier had a series of unsuccessful pregnancies after first suffering a stillbirth.
"In August of 2013, after 3 years in a long distance relationship with my love Guy, he finally moved from Israel to LA," she said in a photo that featured her cuddling her newborn. "I was nine months pregnant and within a few days, the contractions came. We arrived beyond excited to the maternity ward at Cedars Sinai - where the worst happened to us. There was no heartbeat, and we lost our baby girl in a stillbirth," she said looking back at the tragic time that the couple suffered. She recounted that the horror repeated itself and that she had almost given up "hope" of ever becoming a mother.
She also revealed that the baby was nothing short of a miracle to them, saying, "An inexplicable happiness overwhelms us, so we have decided to share our incredible miracle that could have only happened through science and love. Shana Tovah, have a beautiful year, and never lose hope. P.S. Ness = “Miracle” in Hebrew ♥️"
The actress played the role of Kristina in the ABC soap opera from 2002 to 2003. Kristina was a princess on the show and was killed off in an explosion.
