Early life

Storms was born on April 8, 1984 in Orlando, Florida to Mike and Karen Storms. She has three siblings, a younger sister named Gretchen, an older brother named Austin and a step-brother named Chris. She was discovered when she was 5 years old by a talent scout who convinced her parents to put her into an intensive children's program in New York.

Storms appeared in several commercials and then landed her first role on ABC's Second Noah. She went on to star in several other television series and movies. Among those Disney Channel's original movies, Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century, Zenon: The Zequel, and Zenon: Z3.


In 1999, Storms was cast in the role of Isabella "Belle" Black on the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives. She played the role of Belle from 1999 to 2004.

In 2005 she was cast in the role of Mariah Maximilliana Jones, daughter of supercouple Frisco and Felicia Jones on the ABC soap opera General Hospital. She continues to play the role of Maxie to this day.

Personal life

Storms is very close friends with General Hospital co-star Kelly Monaco. They were both featured in the reality show Dirty Soap which debuted on September 25, 2011. She is also best friends with co-star Emme Rylan.

In 2011, Storms had to take a medical leave from General Hospital due to endometriosis. She was temporarily replaced by actress Jen Liley from September 28, 2011 to August 10, 2012. Dirty Soap showed her dealing with the painful illness, and how her friends Kelly Monaco and Farah Fath tried to learn more about what she is going through and help her.

She secretly wed her former General Hospital co-star Brandon Barash in June 2013. On January 7, 2014, Brandon confirmed on Twitter that Kirsten had given birth to a baby girl, Harper Rose Barash.[1] Harper played Storms' on-screen daughter, Georgie.

On April 6, 2016, Soap Opera Digest broke the news that Brandon and Kirsten have filed for divorce after more than 2 and half years of marriage citing irreconcilable differences but they will raise their daughter together as they are splitting amicably.[2]

On May 30, 2017, Storms revealed on Instagram that she has a boyfriend,[3][4] Wes.[5]
