GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Laura — Her Family Tree


Laura has been on GENERAL HOSPITAL for so long that it’s only natural that some fans might be confused about her family tree. Although Laura has a handful of siblings, she is not biologically related to any of them. In the interest of clearing things up, we thought we’d run down Laura Webber’s closest relatives for everyone!

Lesley Williams Webber

Lesley Webber is Laura’s biological mother, although she had been told that her daughter had died. Years later, Lesley learned that her baby had been switched with the deceased newborn belonging to the Vining family.

Gordon Gray

Professor Gordon Gray is Laura’s biological father, although Lesley convinced the guy to stay with his wife, Florence, and they eventually left town before Lesley discovered Laura was actually alive.

Rick Webber

After marrying Lesley, Rick legally adopted Laura, becoming her father. So when he was murdered in 2002, Laura was horrified to think she had killed him and suffered a psychotic break. (It was actually Scott Baldwin who had done the deed.)

Barbara and Jason Vining

The Vinings raised Laura believing her to be their daughter, and were upset when Lesley revealed the truth and attempted to take custody. Lesley’s husband at the time, Cameron Falkner, even paid them to leave town with Laura.

Amy Vining

Although not biologically related, Amy and Laura were raised as sisters. And as such, Amy was jealous that Laura got a better life when she eventually went to live with Lesley.

Blackie Parrish

After Laura disappeared, a devastated Lesley took in a foster child with Rick, a young street kid named Blackie. He dreamed of being a musician, but kept getting in trouble, and was eventually sent to jail for his part in Lou’s accidental death.

Mike Webber

Originally named Mike Phelan, the boy was adopted by Rick and Lesley in 1983. Following Lesley’s presumed death in 1984, Rick then married his biological mother, Ginny Blake.

After Rick married Ginny, they had a son together, who they named Rick Webber, Jr. They left Port Charles the following year.

Laura also has three children, Nikolas Cassadine, Lucky Spencer, and Lulu Spencer. And through them, six grandchildren: Spencer, Cameron, Jake, Aiden, Rocco, and Charlotte.
