General Hospital Relationship Timeline: Maxie And Spinelli
Lifestyle - News
This story contains discussions of a miscarriage.
Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) and Damian Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) of “General Hospital” may not have a grand love story like most memorable soap couples, but they were popular enough to earn the Twitter name "Spixie" during their on-and-off relationship. Spinelli first fell for Maxie when they teamed up to find her sister's (Georgie Jones) killer.
Even though Damian went on to propose, the duo never got married, since Maxie got cold feet the morning of the wedding after waking up from a nightmare in which her entire life went wrong. To help her feel better, Spinelli decided they would still have their big wedding in the future, but wouldn't make things official until Maxie was truly ready.
Maxie then ended up sleeping with crazed artist Robert Frank (James Franco), got accused of murder, spent some time in prison, and married another man, who also ended up in prison. When Maxie got out, she realized she still wanted Spinelli, but he refused to break up with his new girlfriend, Ellie Trout (Emily Wilson).
Maxie later decided she would be a surrogate for her friends Lulu Falconeri (then played by Julie Marie Berman) and Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna), but Maxie suffers a miscarriage. She then becomes pregnant after a one-night stand with Spinelli and gives birth, letting Lulu and Dante believe that the little girl was theirs.
Once the truth comes out, Spinelli fights for the custody of his baby and wins. He moves to Seattle with Ellie for a new life with baby Georgie, and Maxie is left alone with mere visitation rights. As of this writing, Maxie and Spinelli share custody of Georgie, and Spinelli is Maxie's best friend and confidante, helping with her other two small children.
