Tate Donovan Black on DAYS OF OUR LIVES has had a dramatic life from even before he was born! And now that he’s a teenager, so there’s more drama ahead! The character first appeared back in 2015 and was played by a series of twins until 2018. Then, in 2023, Tate returned from boarding school all grown up and with young actor Jamie Martin Mann in the role. Here’s everything you need to know about him:
In late 2014, Theresa Donovan discovered she was pregnant with Brady Black’s baby, but before she could tell him, Kristen DiMera caught wind of the news and abducted her to steal the embryo! After the successful transplant, Kristen teased Brady that she was leaving town with a piece of him and he was skeptical when Theresa claimed that she had been pregnant.
Hiding away in Italy, Kristen gave birth in 2015 and named the baby Christopher, but the infant was suffering from an immune disorder and required a bone marrow transplant. Kristen abducted Theresa to be the donor, but Brady came to the rescue, and the family was reunited at last. After the successful transplant, Brady and Theresa renamed their son Tate.
After Theresa was forced to leave Salem in 2016 to protect her family, Brady raised Tate on his own. And when she returned from Mexico in 2018, Brady rebuffed her attempts to reconcile so she sued for custody of their son. Ultimately, Theresa won custody and left Salem with Tate to raise him in California to be closer to her parents.
In October 2023, Theresa and Brady brought Tate back home after he was expelled from boarding school and the teen began adjusting to life in Salem again.
Stay tuned to DAYS to see what kind of drama he gets involved in next!
