    CHELSEA LAWSON NEWMAN'S HISTORY

    Chelsea met Billy in Myanmar and had sex with him when he was drunk and missing Victoria desperately. She planted drugs on him and he was thrown in jail. She was conspiring with her mother, Anita, and Victor Newman, who later brought her to Genoa City, to keep Billy from Victoria. A pregnant Chelsea showed up at Billy's door in Genoa City prepared to get as much money as she could out of the pregnancy, but softened toward him and Victoria, turned her back on her scheming mother, and agreed to sign over the baby to Billy and Victoria for adoption.

    Chelsea lived in the garage apartment at Billy and Vikki's place while pregnant, and struck up a friendship with Adam Newman, who helped her find out her biological father is Jeff Bardwell. Despite a DNA test, Chelsea didn't receive a warm welcome from Jeff, who denied being her dad. Before giving birth, Chelsea fell through the ice on the pond after an argument with Vikki and Adam saved her life and delivered the baby. Chelsea followed through and signed over the child to Billy and Vikki, but decided not to leave town, even when Victor offered big money for her to do so. With Adam's encouragement she earned her GED and they decided to get married on the farm in Kansas. Anita showed up back in Genoa City and Jeff admitted he is Chelsea's father. The pair began cozying up to the newlyweds, who bought Genevieve's estate.

    After finishing her high school equivalency program, Chelsea became pregnant with Adam's child. They were ecstatic. Unfortunately, as they were headed to the airport for a holiday, Summer, who was driving upset, swerved into their lane and caused a wreck. Chelsea lost the baby soon after in the hospital. Chelsea and Adam began having issues as he seemed to be emotionally unavailable to Chelsea when they were grieving. Adam became involved with Sharon again after saving her from the fire she started at the ranch, which caused Chelsea to become jealous and suspicious. Adam insisted he loved Chelsea, and only Chelsea, but then she caught him kissing Sharon. Chelsea tried to get Adam to move away with her to Paris, but when it came time to go, Adam couldn't leave Newman Enterprises, so Chelsea dumped him. Later, Chelsea discovered she was pregnant by Adam, but she was afraid he would try to take custody of the baby away from her, so she didn't tell him. Since she had had a one night stand with Dylan McAvoy, she reluctantly took Chloe's advice and let Dylan believe he was the one who had got her pregnant. They fell for each other and got married. After the baby was born with an eye problem and Adam got wind of it, he assumed it was hereditary - he confronted Chelsea about the child's true paternity. Dylan was devastated by the news and Adam made Chelsea and the baby move into his penthouse. They grew close while tending to Connor's medical needs, however, even after Connor received Delia's corneas and was fine, Adam continued to behave as though he were stressed. When they finally decided to remarry, Adam suggested that they immediately move to Paris. Just before they were to leave town, Chelsea found a note from Adam and a videotaped confession that he was the driver who hit Delia.
