“The child is not mine”: General Hospital actor Steve Burton splits from wife

The actor has split from his wife of 23 years.

General Hospital alum Steve Burton has split up with his wife.

The actor confirmed their shock break-up on Instagram.

The couple had been married since 1999.

Steven revealed his ex-wife is pregnant with another man’s child.

He said Sheree Gustin was expecting but stressed that the child was not his.

The actor stated: “I wanted to clear something up. Sheree and I are separated.

“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.”

Steve and Sheree are parents to three children. They now share 7-year-old Brooklyn, 16-year-old Jack, and 18-year-old Makena.

The couple said they’re focused on co-parenting their children.

Before their break-up, Burton and Gustin were married for 23 years.

The couple tied the knot on January 16th, 1999.

Burton is best known for playing Jason Morgan on General Hospital. He has been part of the show since 1991 but was recently let go due to the show’s vaccine mandate.

The actor refused to get vaccinated against Covid-19 so they had no choice but to fire the Emmy winner.

He told his followers, “Unfortunately, ‘General Hospital’ has let me go because of the vaccine mandate.

“I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions, and both of those were denied. Which, you know, hurts.

“But this is also about personal freedom to me.”
