As soon as Nina Reeves was introduced to GENERAL HOSPITAL and it was revealed she’d lost her child years ago, fans became convinced that the baby was still out there somewhere. Her mother, Madeline Reeves, upset that Nina had become pregnant by Dr. Silas Clay, drugged her to induce a miscarriage, but it also caused Nina to go into a coma for 20 years!
Although Madeline claimed the baby had died, Valentin got her to confess that Nina had actually given birth to a baby girl, and not wanting to be a grandmother, Madeline gave the infant away. Although she offered to help Valentin locate Nina’s now-adult daughter in exchange for getting her out of prison, the Cassadine left her to rot, determined to prove his love for Nina by finding her daughter himself!
Although viewers had suspected from the start that Nina hadn’t lost the baby when she was comatose, Madeline’s revelation ramped up speculation as to who her daughter could be. Although Nina believes she’s found her long-lost daughter, it’s all a massive lie, so fans are still speculating about who it really could be and every young woman in Port Charles in her mid-20s with even slightly questionable parentage remains a possibility! Someone out there must have the other half of Nina’s heart necklace, but who?
Check out some of the most likely suspects in the gallery below, and share with us your own predictions!

Gh Sasha Nina
Valentine's sleuthing discovered a young woman named Sasha, who according to the DNA tests is definitely Nina's long-lost daughter. Nina herself was overjoyed to learn the news and get to know her child, but it was soon revealed that Sasha and Valentin are pulling the wool over her eyes. Sasha is just faking, and this whole scheme is going to blow up in Valentin's face!
Despite Ava's claims that she was Kiki's mother, viewers remembered when she lied about Franco being her father, so they remained suspicious. And since Kiki's father turned out to be Dr. Silas Clay... who was also the father of Nina's lost daughter, that just seemed like too big of a coincidence to ignore. Unfortunately, despite Kiki being many fans' number one pick, the character's shocking murder took her right out of the running.
Introduced as Aiden's teacher, Willow has since been revealed to be attending the same grief counseling as Michael, leading some fans to suspect she's really the mother of the baby that Lucas and Brad originally adopted that died. While it would be unlikely for her to also be revealed as Nina's daughter, it's possible GH could try to kill two birds with one stone!
Gh Nina Nelle
Another popular fan theory is that Nelle is Nina's long-lost daughter. Given how mentally unstable Nina was when she first emerged from her coma, there are definitely some similarities between the two, but since actress Chloe Lanier has left GH, this would be a very unlikely result as Nelle wouldn't be around to play out the storyline, so what would be the point?
Gh Amy Chet
Nurse Amy is also in the right age range to be Nina's kid, and it would be wonderful if that's where the twists and turns went because it would give the talented Risa Dorken a real storyline to play... something she hasn't had in ages!
Gh Nurse Francesca
Sure, Nurse Francesca looked like a character who was only around for a couple of episodes to go on a date with Michael and be scared off by Nelle, but then she popped back into the scene to reveal that she, too, had been sexually harassed by Dr. Bensch. So why couldn't this lovely young woman turn out to be Nina and Silas' baby? (We can totally see the resemblance to Michael Easton!)
Gh Lucas Brad Wiley
Lucas and Brad's Babymama
The woman from whom Lucas and Brad adopted their baby now wants him back, which has some viewers convinced she'll be making an appearance on camera eventually, and wondering if perhaps she could be Nina's child. But since this storyline is complicated enough — with Brad and Lucas raising Michael's baby boy after Brad and Nelle swapped infants when Wiley died unexpectedly — perhaps they don't need this additional plot twist.
The new D.A. might be pushing the age range a little bit, and they've actually already introduced her mother, Jeannette, but soap operas are full of people with questionable parentage. Although finding out she's really Silas and Nina's daughter would seriously put the kibosh on her quest for revenge on the man who killed her father, so it's seriously unlikely at this point!
Gh Nina Mystery
A New Character
Although there are more than enough potential suspects in Port Charles already, there's always the possibility that someone new will be introduced to the canvas to play Nina's daughter. However, given the size of GH's cast, it's unlikely they'll want to add to it even more. Plus, it's way more dramatic to have it revealed to be someone we already know, so this one is probably the least likely of all options.
