General Hospital’s Laura Wright and hunky Wes Ramsey don’t have much screen time together as Carly Corinthos and troubled Peter August on GH. But, they are inseparable and in love in real life. The story of how they met and came to be a couple is truly amazing. So, here’s a look at five things you may not know about the happy couple’s life outside of the ABC sudser.
#1- General Hospital Actors Laura Wright & Wes Ramsey’s History
GH’s Laura Wright and Wes Ramsey’s story is a bit like a fairytale. They met 15 years ago when they were co-stars on Guiding Light. Wes was smitten with Laura Wright. But she was married and pregnant when they met. So, they were strictly friends and had a blast running lines even though they didn’t have scenes together. However, Wes Ramsey said he’d catch himself staring at her and had to stop himself. Eventually, they both left Guiding Light to pursue other endeavors such as General Hospital.
But, fate brought them back together years later when they met again at the 2017 Daytime Emmys. Wes was shocked to hear Laura Wright was single and jumped at the chance to take her out. And Laura joked she knew he’d call because he hit on her hard. Wes Ramsey had feelings for her for so many years and wasn’t able to act on them. So, finding out she was single was a game-changer. And he didn’t waste a minute going for it. Ever since their first date, the General Hospital stars were inseparable.

#2 – Working In Daytime Gives Them Mutual Respect For Each Other
Wes and Laura’s careers on General Hospital give them an understanding that helps their relationship work. Laura Wright mentions that she thinks it’s difficult for actors that work in daytime to manage relationships. Mostly, because the work they do is so powerful. They must go into a different headspace to tell the stories they do and at the fast pace required. It takes a toll on them to mentally prepare for scenes on General Hospital.
And, at the end of the day, they are wiped. So, they both understand where the other’s coming from and the tough workload. It can be difficult for people who haven’t been there to get it. But, they are able to give each other the kind of support they need to make it through the day. Plus, Wes Ramsey says he’s in absolute awe of Laura Wright right while she works on General Hospital. They have a huge level of respect for each other and it certainly shows.
#3 – GH Pair Laura & Wes Ramsey Unsure About Children
Since Carly Corinthos got pregnant on General Hospital, fans wondered if Laura Wright herself was pregnant. She repeatedly squashed the rumors that they are expecting a baby. No doubt, Laura’s very active on Instagram. So, she posted that the rumors are false. While she adores Wes and they are very happy together, they are not pregnant, says the GH megastar.
Remember, Laura Wright has two older children from her previous marriage. And, while she doesn’t look it, Laura turned 49 years old recently. Of course, many women have babies later in life. But, Laura has made it clear she’s not looking to have a baby anytime soon. She and Wes Ramsey are just enjoying life together. And, judging by their Instagram accounts, the General Hospital co-stars live an exciting life together.
