Since little kids aren’t always seen very often on soaps, some viewers have found themselves wondering “Who is James on GENERAL HOSPITAL?” Well, if you’re one of the fans who need a refresher on Maxie’s son, we’re here to help fill you in! James West was born in 2018 and played by Sally Brown as an infant, followed by Beau and Jet Marciano, Caleb and Kyler Ends, and then Owen and Curtis Rufca.
Maxie Jones revealed she was pregnant at Thanksgiving dinner in 2017, and her husband, Nathan West, was overjoyed. Although he was a little concerned that he couldn’t trust that his mother, Dr. Liesl Obrecht, gave him the correct medical records for his father. However, Dr. Kim Nero assured Nathan that his son was healthy. Tragically, Nathan was killed in the line of duty when the cop tried to rescue his pregnant wife who was being held hostage by Cesar Faison and never got to meet his baby boy.
After leaving the Nurses Ball in 2018, Maxie’s water broke in Peter August’s car and he ended up having to deliver her baby boy right there on the side of the road! She decided to name her son James Malcolm West after Nathan’s given name, James, and her stepfather, Mac. Maxie was released from the hospital but being born prematurely, James had to stay just a little while longer.
Maxie has been raising James by herself, although Peter very nearly became his stepfather before his litany of crimes were finally exposed. After giving birth to James’ baby sister, Louise, Maxie hid her with Brook Lynn Quartermaine (who pretended she was her daughter, Bailey) and left Port Charles with James and Georgie to get away from the drama. Unfortunately, Peter has been tracking Maxie and told Nina Reeves that if she doesn’t help him get Louise, he’s going to abduct James!
Stay tuned to see what happens to Maxie’s son!
