Soap star Steve Burton on split: "The child is not mine"

Steve Burton and Sheree Gustin have been married since 1999 and share three kids together. Sheree just announced she's expecting again, but Steve says the baby isn't his.

"I wanted to clear something up. Sheree and I are separated," Burton wrote on Instagram. "She recently announced that she's expecting her 4th child. The child is not mine."

Though his ex has a baby on the way, Steve Burton added that they are "still co-parenting our three beautiful kids" and "would appreciate privacy at this time."

It's unclear how long Steve and Sheree have been separated. Nor is it known if Sheree has found a new man already or chose to have a child on her own.

Also interesting:

Steve Burton, 51, is known from the soap operas General Hospital and The Young and the Restless.

Infamously, he also left General Hospital in 2021 because he wouldn't meet the show's COVID-19 vaccine mandate. He has since joined Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem.

So, lots of changes in the life of Steve Burton these days.
