Steve Burton and Sheree Burton were married for 23 years before he announced their separation — and claimed his spouse was pregnant with another man’s child.

On general hospital:
Steve became famous for playing Jason Morgan on General Hospital, making his series debut in 1991. Eight years later, he married Sheree, who worked behind the scenes on the beloved soap. The couple went on to welcome three kids: Makena, Jack and Brooklyn.
As Steve’s relationship with the fitness coach continued to flourish, his soap opera career did too. In addition to playing Jason for more than 2,000 episodes — and making appearances as the character on spinoff General Hospital: Night Shift — Steve joined The Young and the Restless for more than 400 episodes from 2013 to 2017.
He concluded: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan. That would be an honor. And if not I’m going to take this amazing experience, move forward and be forever grateful.”
Six months later, Steve was cast in Peacock’s Days of Our Lives spinoff, Beyond Salem. His personal life was in the news at the same time, however, when Sheree shared a photo of a baby bump.
Back in January, the fitness coach shared a cryptic message about mistakes, which many fans have returned to amid the split news.
“I wanted to clear something up. Sheree and I are separated,” the 51-year-old former General Hospital star wrote on Wednesday, May 4, via Instagram Stories. “She recently announced that she’s expecting her 4th child. The child is not mine.”
Sheree, for her part, has yet to comment on who the father of her fourth child is. (Us Weekly reached out for comment.) “Life sure is full of surprises!” she wrote alongside a snap of her baby bump via Instagram Stories earlier this month.
