General Hospital Rumors: Is Roger Howarth’s Austin A Quartermaine?
General Hospital rumors and spoilers predict a big story for Roger Howarth’s Austin, the man who looks just like Franco and then delivered Maxie’s baby. In fact, the word is he is a member of a prominent Port Charles family and we are pretty sure we know who he might be related to.
General Hospital Rumors – A New Q For You
Quartermaines began mentioning Jimmy Lee Holt (Steve Bond) in passing out of nowhere a few weeks ago and while many newer fans might not know who Jimmy Lee is, we remember him well. In the 1980s, he made waves in PC as Edward Quartermaine’s long-lost son, so that would make him Alan (Stuart Damon) and Tracy’s (Jane Elliott) half-brother.
The last we heard of Jimmy Lee, he married a woman named Charity and lived in another part of upstate New York. And he had a son named Austin who would be all grown up by now, so yes, Austin would be a Quartermaine cousin, related to a host of current characters, including Ned (Wally Kurth), Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton), Jason (Steve Burton), and Michael (Chad Duell). Does this mean he gets to move into the Quartermaine mansion, otherwise known as Monica’s house, too?
GH Spoilers – How To Baby Switch Goes Awry
We assume Maxie (Kirsten Storms) manages to get her baby to Brook Lynn, she passes it off as Valentin’s (James Patrick Stuart) and they all live in the Q mansion till someone can bless us all and get rid of Peter. If Austin is living there too, he might think the baby looks familiar since he did deliver her. And then a telling birthmark will confirm it for him and now Austin will have to be in on this mess of a secret as well.

General Hospital Rumors – A Love Interest For Austin
While fans would love someone — anyone — to acknowledge his resemblance to the recently-departed Franco, it would be extra nice if Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did, but we don’t see that happening. Sure, they will both work at GH and see each other in passing but we have to assume Liz forgot what her own husband looked like.
We can see Austin probably being brought on as a love interest for Maxie since the last one didn’t work out too well. That was clear from the start but GH still insisted she has that love interest’s baby via the longest pregnancy ever on soaps.
Stay tuned to General Hospital weekdays to see if Maxie gets a brand-new/old man. Keep checking Celebrating The Soaps for more General Hospital rumors, spoilers, and soap opera news.
