“Naxie” fans were thrilled that the couple finally tied the knot in February, but then Storms took another leave of absence from the soap immediately after the wedding, putting the kibosh on any story plans for the couple. But Paevey assured worried viewers that the plan is to keep them together. “We’re still newly married,” he reminded. “We had to push pause on the newly part, but technically speaking we’re still newlyweds. We’re gonna do that newlywed thing.”
Storms is thrilled to be back on set at GH, calling her return to work, “Awesome. I’ve worked with Ryan mostly, which has been good. It’s been fun.” She also revealed that she’d taped with John J. York (Mac) and Kristina Wagner (Felicia) as well. “I’ve worked with them since I’ve been back,” Storms confided. “We’ve had some really good scenes!”

During his wife’s absence, Nathan has gotten wrapped up in Amy’s scheme to publish her Man Landers book, using him as the face of the author. So how will Maxie feel about coming home in the middle of all this? “I don’t know,” Storms admitted. “That’s interesting. Because they created a lot of backstory for those two characters and I guess they don’t like each other. So when Maxie finds out Nathan’s been spending time with her and helping her with… stuff. That should be interesting. I think people know how Maxie might react.”
Paevey laughed and added: “I can guess. I can guess how Maxie might react!”

The newlyweds are only just being reunited, but already fans are eager to see their favorite supercouple take the next step in their relationship and have a child together. “That would be an interesting way to mix things up,” Paevey admitted.
Storms declared that Nathan would be a good dad, and her co-star agreed, adding that he is a big fan of babies himself. “I go crazy for kids,” Paevey confessed. “Anybody who’s ever seen me around a child, it’s kind of like seeing me around a dog. It’s just something you can’t unsee. So from a selfish perspective, that would be an awesome thing for me to have as part of my character.”
Stay tuned to GH to find out exactly what happens when Maxie returns to her husband and all the fireworks when she learns what he’s been up to with Amy! Mark your calendars for the last week of July and get ready for all the drama and romance!
