Chad Duell began dating Luana after revealing his and Courtney’s wedding was never real
Chad Duell is no stranger to the soap world, especially if you’ve been watching General Hospital, or are a big fan of The Young and the Restless and Courtney Hope. The 35-year-old actor is famously recognized for his role as Michael Corinthos on General Hospital, and has even won an Emmy for his role.
But besides his acting, he also once made the headlines, when he started dating the Y&R star, Courtney Hope, who plays Sally Spectra. The two of them dated for 5 years, and were once even called the “it” couple. They got engaged on Valentine’s Day of 2021, but at the end of 2021, the two broke up. While many believed they had married in October, that wasn’t the case. Duell revealed that neither he nor Hope had “signed anything” and stated they were not “married or anything.”
Both of them moved on, and Duell went on to date Luana Lucci in 2022. Soon after, in March 2023, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child together. But their pregnancy journey wasn’t so easy. Lucci revealed that she had a lot of complications during her 19th week, and it was a high-risk pregnancy. Thankfully, everything worked out in the end, and it was a healthy baby boy. Many fans were eagerly waiting for the day, and now it is finally here.
Firstborns are always special, and even all the fans and co-stars showered their comments with congratulations. Do you think Courtney wished them congratulations too? I mean, he did say they were still close as friends. But that aside, once again, big congratulations to the new parents for welcoming their firstborn to this world. We wish nothing but happiness for them. Let’s all share some love and congratulate them on this new journey in the comments below.
