Fans of the soap-hopping actress have watched him grow up before their eyes.
There is no evidence of soap-opera accelerated aging here. John, the son of Laura Wright and her ex-husband, will actually turn 22 on December 20. Furthermore, it seems improbable that the star of General Hospital could have an adult kid. (She actually has two; Lauren, John’s older sister, just turned 24.) But the images themselves tell the tale—a ridiculously heartwarming tale of how her infant child developed into a fine young man. Look at this.
In the Beginning
In 2019, Wright rewound all the way to LJ’s infancy, back when she was still playing Cassie on Guiding Light. We’ll pause for a moment so that you can get the “awws” out of your system.
Somehow, Carly’s portrayer managed to find a couple of shots of LJ and his sib not being silly — you know, the way kids always are in photos! Boy, do they have Mom’s eyes!
The Long and Short of It
“Oooh,” sighed Wright when she shared this artsy pic of LJ, “when he was little and the hair was long.”
Hug It Out
LJ could have stood in for Michael or Morgan in this posed shot with Mom. Any way you sliced it, though, “this makes my heart smile,” she said.
Wright had already won an Emmy for General Hospital when LJ and Lauren accompanied her to the 2017 ceremony. (She was up for for Outstanding Lead Actress that year for the fourth time.)
On the occasion of LJ’s 2019 commencement, Mom couldn’t contain her love and admiration for her son. “I’m so, so proud,” she wrote, “of this incredible young man.”
Hair Ye, Hair Ye
In 2020, Wright wished LJ a happy Easter with a photo that made him a lock for best-tressed. There are boy bands that would kill for hair half that lush!
The Best of Times
Is there a parent out there who doesn’t relate? With LJ, Wright’s “heart is so, so happy,” she said in the fall of 2020.
Some Things Never Change
Though he’s a grownup now and making his own way in the world, Wright still affectionately calls LJ “my little man.”Some Things Never Change Though he’s a grownup now and making his own way in the world, Wright still affectionately calls LJ “my little man.”
