* Resides at the tackhouse with Nick.
Summer Newman is the daughter of Phyllis Summers and Nick Newman. She was conceived when Nick and Phyllis had an affair following Cassie's death. Phyllis wasn't sure if she was Nick's or Jack's so a paternity test was taken. Nick was the only one to see the results that confirmed she was his. Jack delivered Summer while trapped in the Newman elevator with Phyllis. As a child, Summer went into a coma after Patty Williams intentionally kissed her after eating a peanut butter cookie. Phyllis and Nick blamed Victor, who had brought Patty back to town posing as Dr. Emily Peterson for revenge on Jack. Summer had to undergo speech therapy following the coma.
As a teenager, Summer was vocal about her embarrassing family, and became angry and rebellious after her mother was charged in the old hit-and-run attempted murder case and she caught her fooling around with Ronan. Summer moved in with Nick, who had also left Phyllis, and took a baseball bat to Ronan's car. While driving when upset, Summer caused an accident that caused Adam's wife Chelsea to miscarry. Summer shared a kiss with Fen Baldwin, and involved him in a scheme against Ronan that included bullying the boy Ronan is mentoring, Jamie. While still estranged from Phyllis, Summer turned to Avery, who was seeing Nick, and who talked her out of pursuing emancipation. In the meantime, Summer had apologized to Jamie and had come to like him, which set Fen off and caused him to escalate the bullying until Jamie nearly killed himself.
Summer developed a crush on Kyle, which caused Nick to start acting strange. It turns out he hadn't confirmed his paternity of Summer way back when and worried that she might be Jack's daughter, and therefore, Kyle's sister. He did a new DNA test, which came back showing that Nick was not her father. He told a furious Phyllis, and they assumed that Jack was her dad. Unbeknownst to them, Sharon had tampered with the DNA results. Eventually, Nick told Summer that he was not her father, and that Kyle, her crush, was her half-brother. Believing Jack to be her father, and her whole life to be a lie, Summer became depressed. She has had to deal with Jack and Victor fighting about who her family is, and all that on top of Phyllis being in coma since she fell down the stairs at the gala. Summer was given back Phyllis' effects from the stairwell, among them Sharon's lipstick, but no one has yet figured out that Sharon and Phyllis were fighting when she fell. Summer is currently perusing the idea of moving to Los Angeles to model.
