After Dante Falconeri and Lulu Spencer-Falconeri found out that Lulu couldn't carry to a baby to term, Maxie Jones offered to be their surrogate. Lulu was sceptical at first but eventually warmed up to the idea and accepted Maxie's offer. The doctors implanted Maxie with their fertilized embroyo and she found out she was pregnant on Christmas Eve but sadly Maxie miscarried the baby. She ended up sleeping with Spinelli on New Years Eve and got pregnant. When Maxie found out that she was pregnant again she decided to pass the baby off as the Falconeri's and decided not to tell Spinelli.
Maxie feels baby Connie move for the first time on April 26, 2013. Maxie really started to bond with the baby once she found out it was a girl on June 27, 2013. On July 11, Maxie suggested that Lulu name the baby Georgie after her late sister, Georgie Jones, but Lulu said that she needed to save that name for her own daughter. On July 16, Maxie had a childbirth class and both Dante and Lulu were unavailable to be there so the baby's real father, Spinelli stepped in. The truth about her biological parents was revealed to Dante and Lulu on September 30, 2013. Lante and Spixie started a dirty custody battle over baby Connie/Georgie and Spinelli ends up winning custody and her mother, Maxie is not allowed to see her for a period of 6 months. Dante's mother, Olivia's visions:
Through out Maxie's pregnancy she had visions that she was going to give birth to a puppy. (the puppy was Jackal which is Spinelli's nickname).
On July 16, Olivia had vision of Maxie stabbing Lulu in the back (with a knife), which she did just not literally.
Connie was born on August 21, 2013 via emergency c-section to Dante Falconeri and Lulu Spencer-Falconeri after Maxie's water breaks at her parents' wedding. Maxie and the gang go to the hospital where the baby starts having heart decelerations and Maxie thinks that she gave the baby a bad heart but Lulu reassures her that her heart condition has nothing do with the baby because she is not biologically hers. It turns out that her heart is fine but the umbilical cord is wrapped around her neck. The baby isn't getting enough oxygen so they have to deliver her right away but Maxie says she needs to tell Spinelli something about the baby before they go, but the doctor said they can't wait so she doesn't get the chance to tell him. They perform the c-section with Lulu in the operating room while Dante and Spinelli watch from the gallery. Maxie and Lulu cut the cord and the baby was taken away. She got to meet her "parents" and "grandparents", meanwhile her real mother starts hemorrhaging and Ellie is telling her real father the truth about her. Lulu suggests she and Dante name "their" daughter, Jacquelyn but Dante says it sounds too much like Spinelli (called the Jackal). Baby Connie's real mommy tries to breastfeed her but her real dad, Spinelli stops her and confronts her about keeping baby Connie's real parents a secret. When Dante and Lulu find out about what Maxie tried to do they threaten to ban her from "their" daughter's life but Maxie says they can't and in the end they don't. Dante and Lulu decided to name her Connie in memory of Dante's late cousin and Lulu's former boss, Connie Falconeri. On September 27, Connie was baptized as Constanza Louise Falconeri, with Maxie and Spinelli as her godparents.
Truth revealed and custody battle
After the baptism, Brad Cooper comes in and tells Dante and Lulu that Connie is really Maxie and Spinelli's daughter. Maxie and Spinelli deny that Brad's statement is true and Lulu believes them but Dante doesn't. He starts to interrogate them and Lulu finally figures out (by remembering that Maxie has repeatedly tried telling her something about the baby and then Maxie bonding with the unborn baby) that what Brad said is true. Dante and Lulu have a heated confrontation with Maxie and Spinelli and then leave the church. Back at the loft Lulu tells Dante that regardless of the truth she wants to fight to keep Connie and at the same time Maxie and Spinelli decide that they want their daughter back. Lante calls and asks Spixie to come over so they can talk about Connie, (Spixie thougt that Lante were going to give them back there baby) when they get there they find out that Dante and Lulu had invited them over to sign adoption papers but Spinelli and Maxie say won't because they want Connie but Lulu says she will give them Connie over her dead body, Spixie is floored so Maxie throws the adoption papers on the table and they leave and thus begin a very nasty custody battle. The custody battle started on November 13th, 2013 with Alexis Davis representing Dante and Lulu, and Diane Miller representing Maxie and Spinelli.
New life with her father
On November 19th, 2013, the Falconeri's lose custody, and the judge awards full custody and parental rights to her biological father, Spinelli. Maxie is denied visitation and is not allowed near her for a period of 6 months, at which point the possibility of visitation can be revisited.
