It’s been a huge year for Days of Our Lives star Greg Vaughan. He had tongues wagging when he showed up for the Daytimes Emmy’s with Angie Harmon as his date. It didn’t take long for the twosome to confirm they were a couple.  According to an interview with Soap Opera Digest they’ve been friends for years but just recently took their friendship to the next level. Realizing he would have to make the first move, Greg flew to the East Coast to take Angie out for ice cream. The relationship blossomed and the couple has turned into a modern day Brady Bunch. She is the mother of three daughters. He is the father of three sons.

The couple has been very vocal on social media about their admiration and affection for one another.  Even though they’re both busy with their careers they’ve made time for family vacations over the summer. Vaughan seems to enjoy spending time with his real-life “Brady Bunch”.

First Time Nominee and Win for Days of Our Lives Greg Vaughan

No one was more shocked than Greg Vaughan to hear that he had won the Daytime Best Supporting Actor Emmy. When he heard “Greg” he believed the winner was Greg Rikaart, the actor who played Leo on DOOL. Vaughan recalls hearing nothing but silence after his name was called. The realization that he had won made the actor very emotional. He remembers thinking “Wow, I have to go up there! It happened! Oh, my God!”

The actor expressed that he had a rough day leading up to the Emmy’s. Nothing seemed to be going right for him. At the end of the day, he walked away with the trophy and a smile. He was filled with gratitude for so many people that he tried to keep his composure as he accepted the award. All the while trying to make sure he thanked everyone he needed to.

Days of Our Lives Eric Brady – Moving Forward

Greg feared he didn’t have enough material for his 2018 Emmy reel. However, in his interview he said: “There was no substantial, front-burner storyline, there were just a lot of good moments.”  That shouldn’t be a problem for next year’s real.

Eric Brady has had some good storylines so far in 2018 and things only seem to be getting better.  He lost the love of his life, Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker), thanks to his step-brother Brady Black (Eric Martsolf). Eric has fallen in love again, this time with Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves) and is now engaged. His mother was shot by his twin sister after he grabbed the gun. Soon Eric will find out about Brady’s betrayal and learn Nicole didn’t willingly leave him. Eric will go on a quest to find Nicole and make an unexpected discovery. These storylines are sure to put Eric on the front burner of Days of Our Lives for some time. All the while giving him lots of juicy material for his next Emmy reel.
