Days of Our Lives’ Brandon Barash Goes Public With New Lady Love: ‘Lucky Fella’
Days of Our Lives star makes it Instagram official with Isabella Devoto.
Actor Brandon Barash posed happily with his new lady love in a photo shared on social media and captioned the special moment very simply, stating, “Lucky fella.” Barash split from his former wife Kirsten Storms four years ago and the pair has remained close, successfully co-parenting their now six year old daughter, Harper, together. They met while working together on General Hospital, where Storms plays Maxie and Barash held the role of Johnny Zacchara before joining Days of Our Lives as Stefan and later returning as his doppelganger, Jake.
The new object of Barash’s affection, whom he tagged in his post, is Isabella Devoto, who confirmed their relationship status by replying, “And I’m the luckiest lady,” along with a red heart emoji — and just like that, the duo went Instagram official.
Aside from his real-life romance, Barash continues to feature heavily on Days of Our Lives, where his character is currently involved in a secret and controversial between-the-sheets relationship with none other than Kate, which could soon be complicated by Gabi’s return.
Part of the daily slog of studio life now includes regular viral testing and Barash recently cracked up his followers and co-stars with a hilarious slo-mo video clip of his putting in time waiting in his car for the all-clear. Captioned, “An actor prepares” (while awaiting his test results), the comedic star engages in some interesting facial exercises that are downright bizarre when set in slow motion.
Days actors past and present took readily to the comment section, with Molly Burnett (Melanie) asking, “Did this work tho? Looking for new techniques,” and Lamon Archey (Eli) joking, “Hahah. That car is a HOTSPOT!” Eric Martsolf quipped, “Damnit Barash…watched three times and …can’t stop,” and Greg Rikaart (Leo) cringed, “No my God!!” Robert Scott Wilson (Ben) chimed in with, “Stanislavski approved brotha,” and ex-wife Storms posted an emoji with a quizzical expression.

<p>Gabi leans over Stefan’s desk at the DiMera mansion, teasing him as he signs documents. Her teasing worked and Stefan had a difficult time concentrating on his work.</p>
<p>Stefan and Gabi had an explosive relationship. Things got heated quite often and their arguments often turned to sex. In this case, they were arguing over his mother, Vivian Alamain. Vivian hated Gabi and made things difficult for the pair.</p>
<p>Gabi and Stefan couldn’t keep their hands off of each other at Julie’s Place, which back then was called Doug’s Place. They went at it on Julie’s desk in her office and she caught them and promptly dumped water on them to cool them off, then kicked them out of her office.</p>
<p> Though Gabi and Stefan got off on the wrong leg when they met, and had a tumultuous relationship, they fell hard for each other, though they married initially in order for her to gain control over DiMera Enterprises. They were married on July 31, 2019, in a ceremony at the DiMera mansion with Abe Carver officiating. </p>
<p>The day that Stefan was shot by accident, he gave Gabi one last kiss goodbye after taking a call from Vivian. He was going to take her to a private airfield where she could escape Salem. Stefan gave Gabi a heart necklace and then met his mother at the park October 3, where Lani found them. </p>
<p>Guns were drawn when Lani caught Vivian before Stefan could take her to the airfield. Vivian shot at Lani just as Stefan came up behind her. </p>
<p>Once guns were drawn and Vivian shot at Lani, she accidentally hit Stefan in the neck when he jumped in front of the bullet. Vivian screamed as blood gushed from his mouth. Vivian threw her gun and Stefan told her to run, while Lani put pressure on his wound and called 911. </p>
<p>Stefan was rushed to the hospital and Kayla told Gabi that Stefan’s brain was deprived of oxygen for too long – he was brain dead. Gabi went into denial and Vivian poked her head in, in scrubs, assessing the situation and looking devastated. </p>
<p>Ben, looking for a job as a mechanic and searching for some parts to fix Ciara’s motorbike, stumbled into a garage and upon Stefan’s doppelganger, Jake. Jake was working on a car and Ben couldn’t believe the resemblance of his friend and boss. Jake said he didn’t know Stefan.</p>
<p>Stefan’s doppelganger, Jake wandered the town square. He was seen by Gabi, when she was looking at her reflection in the window but when she turned, he was gone. </p>
<p>Jake wound up hiring Ben to work with him at the garage. They worked on Ciara’s bike, Bo’s old bike, while Ben picked Jake’s brain about his life. Jake wouldn’t say much but mentioned an ex-girlfriend who sounded similar to Gabi.</p>
<p>Gabi saw Jake at the town square and gasped and promptly passed out. Jake ran to her and when she mumbled ‘Stefan’ as she started to come around, Jake took off. Gabi told Kate what she saw and Kate suggested she was seeing things and took her to the pub for tea.</p>
