This soap star has had a tough road to her recent pregnancy

It's a happy time indeed for General Hospital star Vanessa Marcil, who gave fans a sneak peak at her growing baby bump on Instagram earlier this week. It's been a tough road for Marcil and her fiancé, whom she only refers to as "MC" publicly, as Marcil has struggled to conceive for quite some time.

On Tuesday, Jan. 9, Marcil showed off her bump while one of her tiny puppies, Rocky, snuggled right into her. "The GIRLS," Marcil wrote without any further description. This is the first time Marcil seems to have mentioned any kind of sex in relation to her baby, so it's exciting to know that after all this time, she will finally have a little girl.
