When the Navy SEAL whom she’d gotten pregnant by went AWOL from her life, Kim Nero had no choice but to soldier on. Dedicating herself instead to making a good life for her son, Oscar, Kim buried herself in her career as an OB/GYN. However Oscar’s declining health led her to track down the boy’s other family in Port Charles, where she met someone for whom companionship had also taken a back seat: a just-out-of-prison Julian Jerome! Fortunately, the former mobster introduced himself as pub owner Charlie, which gave Kim the chance to know the man behind the mafi oso. As it turned out, they had something in common: Both would do anything for their loved ones… which in time came to include each other. For Dr. Nero, what was born of that relationship was every bit as lovely as the babies she delivers.
