Later, though, Elizabeth finds out she's pregnant and is not sure if Jason or Lucky is the father. Lucky, high on drugs, tries to make a fake drug bust on Jason and ends up nearly hitting Elizabeth. When he (and Jason) finds out she's pregnant, he promises to get clean for the sake of the baby. Elizabeth later has a paternity test done on her baby and it shows that Jason is the father.

Jason and Elizabeth vowed to do whatever they have to do to keep their child safe, including having Jason give up his rights to their son in order to protect him from the mob. However during the Black and White Ball in 2007, after being egged on by Sam (who found out right after Jake was born), Jason comes clean with Lucky about being Jake's father. Eventually, though, Jason, Liz, Lucky and Sam agree to continue letting everyone believe that Lucky is Jake's father in order to keep him safe. However even letting everyone believe that Lucky is Jake's father, he was still kidnapped by the Russian mob as they found out that he's Jason's son.

Jason spends some time with his son while waiting for Elizabeth to wake up before Lucky arrives. While the two bond as a family with Jake, Elizabeth goes into a coma. She doesn't wake up for awhile. Jason had a request from Elizabeth that if something happened to her, Jason would tell Lucky the truth. Lucky for Jason, just as he's about to tell Lucky that he himself is the father, Elizabeth wakes up. Elizabeth names her baby Jacob Martin. Both she and Lucky agree to name their friends, Nikolas Cassadine and Emily Quartermaine as godparents. She tells Lucky, Nikolas, and Emily that the reason she chose the name was because she always liked the name Jake, and Martin was to honor her late maternal grandfather. When Jason visits her and Jake, she tells him the other reason for the name—she gave her son Jason's initials as a part of his name. Jason is honored and happy that she and Jake are safe.

Sam eventually finds out the truth about Jake and is devastated.
