Baby Benson-Corinthos is a fictional character on the ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital. He or she will be the son or daughter of ELQ CEO Michael Corinthos and psychotic town troublemaker, Nelle Benson.

Baby Benson-Corinthos is due in the Fall of 2018.



Baby's parents: Michael and Nelle

Baby Benson-Corinthos was conceived during his or her parent's brief relationship in 2017.

On December 7, after Michael cuts ties with Nelle and suggests she start over, she announces she's pregnant with his child. She says she took a test the day before and is about six weeks along. Michael wants proof.

Later on, Dr. Kim Nero confirms the pregnancy and that she is six weeks along. They run into Carly afterward and Nelle gleefully congratulates the expectant grandma. Both Michael and Carly demand a paternity test and Nelle doesn't look happy and makes it clear she doesn't want money. Nelle eventually agrees to a noninvasive paternity test.

On December 20, Michael and Nelle discuss the baby.

On December 22nd, (Christmas on the show), Nelle is seen talking to the baby after finding out Kelly's is closed.

Later on, Nelle showed up at the Corinthos house and fainted in Michael's arms. She comes to on the couch and explains that she was going to get food but nothing was open so she started driving home and came upon a down tree in the road and got out of the car. She states she didn't mean to end up at the Corinthos', but she started walking and felt faint. Sonny brings Nelle some broth to warm her and the baby up.

Michael asks if she's in any pain and Nelle asks if he's worried about the baby even though he doesn't know if he's the dad yet and Michael says yes. Nelle tells him that they're warming up and they're gonna be just fine. Nelle ends up spending the night at the house.


It was later revealed that Nelle has fainted a lot and it was due to low blood pressure. She was told by a doctor to take it easy.

On January 16, an amniocentesis confirmed that Michael is indeed the father.

On January 22, the baby has appeared in a sonogram, which Nelle would later show Michael after he missed the appointment.

On February 22, Michael and Nelle attend the childbirth class.

On March 6, Nelle suffered from Braxton Hicks contractions, while trapped at Jerome Gallery, with Carly during an earthquake.


Nelle accuses Carly

On May 11, Nelle fell down a flight of stairs after getting into an argument with Carly. Nelle accused Carly of pushing her. Thankfully the baby came out unscathed.
