You might love or hate Dr. Britt, but you must agree that Kelly Thiebaud aced the role. The General Hospital star is awarded the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. Though it was on and off, the American actress had been playing the role for a decade now. Currently, she is making headlines for leaving the show.
Everybody wants to know the reason. She opened up on Soap Opera Digest with an interesting answer. She is in love. Yes, you got it right.
She told that it’d been a year of her long-distance relationship, and her partner could not come to the States. However, it’s not the sole reason. She also stated that she loves the character of Britt, her fans, and General Hospital. But now, Kelly prefers to discover other avenues in her career.
That sounds good. And we are wondering who the mystery man Kelly fell for.

Kelly Thiebaud Dating History
Poor Britt had a hard time finding love. But this is not true for Kelly. She has dated her General Hospital co-star Bryan Craig. Bryan played the role of Morgan Corinthos from 2013 to 2016.
There’s an interesting fact too. Their characters never met on the screen. Their love story blossomed behind the scenes. The lovey-dovey affair started in 2013.
They dated for two years before getting engaged on 28th July 2015. However, things did not go well, and the couple broke off after 6 months in 2016. In an interview with The Talk Craig revealed that they planned to marry in March 2017. Well, that’s sad.
According to Media reports, Kelly stayed single for a long time post-breakup with Craig. Before dating Bryan, she was in a relationship with The Twilight Saga actor Kellan Lutz. Kellan was cast as Emmett Cullen in the film series. It was in January 2011 when they got together.
But, it lasted only for a few months and ended in April 2011. Kellan went ahead to marry actress Brittany Gonzales in November 2017.
