Jess from Ohio on

Aw, congrats to them! They have always been a fave real life soap couple of mine. I also didn’t realize how young Kyle was (compared to her). I am so thrilled for them!

Benigna Marko on

Nice. I bet ya that child will have amazing eyes.

Lizzie on

Wow, I had no idea that “Nicole” and “Brady” were a real life couple, Thats great!! Congratulations to them both, I’m sure they are thrilled and will make wonderful parents:)

Sage on

I am so excited that baby is going to be beautiful. I also have to say I can’t stand Arianne’s character on days she gets me so mad lol. But I love them together.

QT on

Good for them. But I could’ve sworn they broke up not to long ago.

H on

QT – They separated in Summer of 2007, but announced that they had reconciled and things were fantastic in early 2008, so they’ve been back together for quite a while.

katie on

I had no idea they were together! That’s amazing. Congrats to Kyle & Arianne!

Dach on

Congrats to them both. They did seprate for a short while but got back together. They are a cute couple. I love Nicole on DOOL.

Alice on

I knew it!!! I watch Days every day and had noticed that “Nicole” was looking fuller on top and also wearing high-waisted tops.

Lola Marie on

QT you are right they seperated but they decided to try and save their marriage and got back together. Something you don’t see a whole lot of these days!

Good for them and I hope this baby completes them 🙂

Darlene on

Qt they did break up a long time ago but they got back together.

I am so happy for them! They have talked about wanting a child for quite a while in some interviews, so I’m thrilled they’re finally realizing their dream! Like others, I had suspected that Ari might be expecting when I saw a picture from the recent DAYS annual charity basketball game that James Reynolds (Abe Carver) does. Ari was in street clothes and normally she would have been right out there with them playing. So I wondered, and then I started noticing they’re filming her more close-ups and in different shots then they used to.

I love that they’ve been open about the fact that they did separate for a while, but instead of doing the “popular” thing and quickly divorcing, they decided to fight for their relationship and did what it took to reconcile, now they’re going to have a precious baby, and they seem happier than ever!

Congrats to both of them!!! With those two as parents, that baby is going to be gorgeous!!!

Alysse on

Congratulations to Arianne and Kyle!

Anne on

I watch DOOL and suspected she was pregnant because of the tops she was wearing and her body overall filling out. Congrats to both of them.

Dana on

I am so happy for them. I also thought you looked like she was a little fuller in her face. I wish they would write it in the show..maybe she would give it up and put it on Sami’s door without telling. Then Sami and Raffe would be a family again.

sage on

Dana you should be a writer for Days I love that idea lol

Mary-Helen on

Aw, congrats! Brady & Nicole were one of my fave soap couples!

I hate that it seems only Ali Sweeney’s pregnancies get written into the show. I would love to see Nicole finally have a child of her own. The way it’s going, the only “new generation” of Salem will be Sami’s children!

Sarah on

It can’t happen Dana since Nicole can’t carry a child to term. I wish Eric would come back. Eric & Nicole forever!

Congrats to them.

Angie on

Why is it that every time a soap couple is mentioned on this board from DAYS people feel the need to come in and air their opinions about the storylines the people are involved in. This doesn’t seem like the appropriate place to air your soap opera-related grievances.

trinh on

i don’t think there’s anything wrong about making an innocent comment about a soap opera character that an actor plays. daytime soaps don’t just air once a week for 30 min for a few seasons or once at a movie. they air every week day, an hour a day, all year round. soap actors understand- and bank on the fact- that these soap characters become a part of people’s “lives.” anyway, congratulations to the couple! i’m glad they were able to work things out. 🙂

Samantha on

CONGRATS Kyle & Ari!!! That baby is gonna be gorgeous. I knew this news was coming cuz of the pics from the Days Charity Basketball Game and you could kinda see the bump. Not to mention she would usually play and she didn’t. One more thing Kyle Lowder has a 10 questions video on Youtube and he kinda hinted at this news or that it might be coming soon. I’m just so thrilled for them. I LOVE Kyle as Rick on B&B and Ari is brilliant as well. By the way I’m the Samantha they mentioned at the end of this article. Kyle and Ari are too special and important to have not posted this news. CONGRATS once again Mr.&Mrs.Lowder!!!

Debbie on

Yay, congratulations Kyle and Ari. Love DAYS!!!

Alesha on

Congrats!! After their brief split they deserve this baby bundle of joy happiness!!

eternalcanadian on

oh that is lovely news. they’ve been together for a long time now, and hopefully they were able to learn from their separation back a couple years ago and to move on together as parents-to-be. such a cute couple! 🙂

Rachel on

Congration Ari and Kyle

Rachel M. on

I really am so happy for her & yes, they really should write her pregnancy into the story. On soaps,they have done it millions of times for woman characters who cannot bear a child & then all of a sudden they become pregnant & have a happy ending! I really hope the Days writers would consider this!

Jan C on

Congratulations to both of you. Ari, I think you are one of the best actresses I have ever seen. When you lost your baby on Days, I cried with you. Your performance was so real and believeable and outstanding. And Kyle, miss you on Days. You are the best, too. Enjoy that sweet little bundle of joy! Ari, will you be coming back to Days after the baby is born?

Heather G. on

Well, this would certainly explain the strange choices the show has been making for her wardrobe. As for the dislike of her character on the show, she doesn’t write the script. She just acts it out. Congrats Arianne and Kyle!

Heather G. on

Oh and I think the reason they aren’t writing her pregnancy into the show is because while Arianne is on maternity leave, “Nicole” is going to be in jail LOL

Courtney on

Congrats to the new parents…….. Has anyone ever wondered where ALL of Sammie’s kids are? I think she has like 5? But the show only shows her oldest and now the baby, where’s the others??????????
