This kinda sounds like a “very special episode” of General Hospital.
Soap stars Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) and Brandon Barash (Johnny Zacchara) are expecting their first child together in January. They also just got married in June, and recently shared details on the quickie wedding with People.
As Brandon explained it, they had just left their first baby doctor's appointment and were feeling pretty darn good about life. They were walking home when they got a text from his dad and stepmom, who were in Vegas for the weekend 'cause Brandon's dad was playing in the World Series of Poker. The text said his dad was knocked out early in the game and was feeling crushed. At that point, Brandon said, "Kirsten and I looked at each other and said in unison (a common occurrence with us), 'Wanna go to Vegas and get married?!' That was all we needed."
By the next day, Brandon, 33, had proposed to Kirsten, 29, with "a blue raspberry Ring Pop in hand at a gas station" and planned a weekend wedding at Caesar's Palace. There were about 10 people in attendance. Obviously Kirsten got a ring upgrade somewhere along the line!
Read the full story for more details. It's cute and memorable and their now-cooking baby girl will probably love hearing about it someday!
