* Met Billy in Mayanmar
Past: Bartender/con artist
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.

At home, Victoria leaves Billy a phone message asking where he is. Chelsea arrives and Victoria tells her she heard her telling Adam he's the father of her baby in the hospital. Chelsea feels ambushed. Victoria tells her they'll work together to keep it from him; she doesn't want Adam knowing he has a Newman heir. Chelsea is stunned to hear that Adam called her doctor. Billy arrives. Vikki says she invited Chelsea over to see Johnny. Chelsea exits. Billy questions Vikki, who asks where he was. He complains about her blowing off their evening for Victor and Adam. He produces masquerade ball masks and they reminisce, but Vikki mentions Victor. Billy rants that she's obsessed, and focusing all her attention on Adam instead of where it should be. She agrees it's getting way out of hand. She apologizes and Billy says, "Let's go make a baby." She says if they're successful, she'll be giving Victor something Adam can't; another Newman heir. Billy pushes her away. "Are you serious? Is that why you're doing this?" Billy tells her he won't be a stud pony so she can get one up on Adam.
