Longtime U.S. daytime soap star Kirsten Storms is a new mum.

The General Hospital actress and her husband and co-star Brandon Barash welcomed their first child on Tuesday (07Jan14), a daughter called Harper Rose Barash.

Barash took to Twitter.com to share the good news and wrote, "Our passenger has touched down and arrived. Welcome to our world. There has not been a more fulfilling day," while Storms posted a photo of her proud husband holding their daughter.

Storms and Barash secretly wed last June (13) and announced her pregnancy later in the year.
