GH's Laura Wright finally figured out 'who she wants to be' on special milestone

General Hospital’s Laura Wright (Carly) recently celebrated her 52nd birthday and she’s only just figured out “who she wants to be” so let’s take a look at her inspiring no-filter post.

In Port Charles, her character isn’t having the best of luck in the romance department. Thankfully, Wright and her real-life boyfriend Wes Ramsey look like they’re on cloud nine. Just last week they were spotted hanging out at the US Open and now, they’re celebrating a special milestone.

On Sunday, September 11, Wright’s boyfriend and former castmate (ex-Peter) sent her a touching tribute to express just how much he appreciates his partner. Let’s take a look at the heartfelt birthday posts…

GH’s Laura Wright finally figured out ‘who she wants to be’

General Hospital’s Laura Wright was born on September 11, 1970, in Clinton, Maryland, USA. That means the soap veteran recently celebrated her 52nd birthday.

Laura wanted to share some pictures to thank everyone for their birthday wishes and to honor her 52 years on this planet. Just as she was about to share some “amazing pictures from a photo shoot I did recently” she decided to choose some “no makeup – curly hair ones” instead.

That’s because “when I think about what I want at 52 – who I want to be – how do I want to show up. The word Authentic kept coming up.” Fans love Laura Wright for keeping it real but Wright did reveal that she will “still post glamorous shots” because like us all, she does “love getting dolled up.”

To conclude the inspirational message Wright penned: “I am having the time of my life discovering ME ❤️ Yep this is me 52 – #authenticity#thisisme#grateful#lifeisbeautiful#happinessisachoice#nofilter

How did Wright and Ramsey meet?

In 2005, Wright took over the role of Carly Corinthos on GH and Wes Ramsey walked on canvas playing the villainous Peter August in 2017.

However, this wasn’t their first meeting, the actors first locked eyes when they were both on Guiding Light. Wright was married at the time and the pair were friends but went their separate ways when they each left the show.

Then, years later at an Emmys party, when Wright had gotten divorced, Ramsey decided to ask her out on a date. Whilst she was skeptical due to their seven-year age gap, she agreed and Wright and Ramsey have been together ever since; as they say, the rest is history!

Wes Ramsey shares loving birthday tribute for his girlfriend

Ramsey shared a loving tribute for his girlfriend on Instagram, posting a picture of her on their boat, in the sunset, holding their dog. He wrote: “Another magical year around the sun my darling & you’re still shining so bright!”

He continued, “May the gift of life & love continue to bless you with the laughter & strength & drive that define you & inspire others!” Ramsey then thanked his lover “for sharing your warmth with the world… Happy birthday baby!”

Wright responded to the loving post with, “Love you Baby!!!!!!”

Many fans, followers, and former co-stars flooded the comments section and sent Laura birthday wishes.
