General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Maxie (Kirsten Storms) has a tough road ahead of her. She already feels like she’s living a nightmare. Maxie’s still reeling from Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) shocking death and the horrible pain she’s dealing with. She’s trying to stay strong for the baby, but it’s difficult.
Unfortunately, Maxie’s ordeal is about to get even harder. Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) helping Maxie plan Nathan’s funeral, but nothing can prepare her for the despair that’ll come with it. Maxie’s sadness will rev up to the max, so we should get ready for some emotional scenes.
General Hospital spoilers say Maxie will have trouble getting through this. She’ll feel like she’s drowning in grief and that feeling won’t let up anytime soon. However, Maxie will begin the healing process eventually. Once the baby arrives, perhaps he or she lift Maxie’s spirits.
Of course, there’s a pleasant GH surprise looming. Kim (Tamara Braun) couldn’t tell the baby’s gender during the ultrasound appointment, but Maxie and Nathan didn’t want to know anyway. They were saving that news for later. It should be bittersweet when Maxie finds out without Nathan by her side.
Nathan won’t be around to share in the joy, but at least we know Ryan Paevey’s thoughts on the topic. On Twitter, Paevey recently offered a gender prediction. He just couldn’t resist guessing the outcome of all this. “If it’s a mirror of my own fate, my gut tells me the universe is gonna give us a girl,” Paevey said. “But as she’s already got a little lady, maybe the writers will give us a son?”
It sounds like Paevey’s torn between his head and his heart! Soaps tend to even things up when it comes to giving out babies, so a boy certainly seems reasonable. It would also give Faison (Anders Hove) a kid to go after if he miraculously returns from the dead. Faison would probably be more interested in a male.
On the other hand, how sweet would a little girl be?! If Nathan had lived to raise his child, it would’ve been so easy to imagine him doting on a daughter. Maybe Maxie could spoil her on his behalf. We never see Georgie, so that may not be much of a factor. A girl was Paevey’s first instinct, so we’ll see!
Whatever the case, Maxie will undoubtedly cling to this kid and remember the good times with her deceased hubby. We’ll give you updates as other General Hospital details emerge. Stay tuned to ABC’s GH and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest General Hospital spoilers, updates and news.
