Kirsten Storms has 1 daughter she shares with her ex

Storms has one child named Harper, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Brandon Barash.

Storms and Barash—a soap actor known for his roles on General Hospital and Days of Our Lives—got married in 2013. They welcomed baby girl Harper in 2014, though the couple decided to call it quits in 2016, citing irreconcilable differences.

Despite the divorce, Storms and Barash still remain on good terms. They co-parent Harper together with both often sharing fun moments with her on their social media accounts, such as when Harper graduated from kindergarten and when Barash cut her hair during quarantine.

Storms revealed to Soaps In Depth in 2018 that co-parenting is the “best” situation for their daughter, saying, “It’s important to us that Harper get the best possible experience growing up — and that means seeing her mom and dad in the same room with each other, frequently.”

Kirsten Storms recently revealed her daughter is skilled in navigating a smartphone

Storms also recently let fans in on something her daughter has learned to do: navigate a smartphone. Taking to Instagram, Storms marveled at the differences between her young self and her daughter now when it comes to technology.

“My first cellphone was a flip phone when I was 16 years old (huge upgrade from my blue pager),” Storms wrote. “It, of course, did not have a camera – it actually had no features aside from making calls.”

She continued, “Fast forward to now…and my 6 year old can expertly unlock my smart phone, open an app and take selfies…this is crazy. Soon she will know how to use this phone better than I do. I just [pray] she doesn’t figure out how to purchase things on Amazon. (I do love her selfies though).”

Alongside the story, Storms uploaded a selfie Harper took in which she can be seen making a silly face for the camera.
