    Baby Girl McCall was the stillborn daughter of mob boss, Sonny Corinthos and his ex-mistress, Sam McCall. Her intended legal father was former mob boss, Jason Morgan, and she was going to be named Lila Morgan after Jason's late grandmother, Lila Quartermaine.



    Lila McCall’s parents, Sam McCall and Sonny Corinthos

    Sam discovers she is pregnant while she is mistress to Sonny Corinthos. She is unsure of who the father is, because she also slept with Jasper Jacks the night of Port Charles hotel fire.

    During the pregnancy, Sonny breaks up with Sam, and returns to his wife, Carly, and their family. Jason Morgan offers to help raise the little girl after learning that Sam is pregnant. Jason and Sam plan to marry before the little girl arrives circumstances prevent this from happening.


    Jason, Sam, and Lila in Sam's fantasy

    When Kristina Corinthos-Davis was suffering from leukemia and required a bone marrow transplant, Sam's unborn child was found to be a match. The doctors said that Kristina would need the stem cells from the little girl's umbilical cord. Sam needed to induce an early labor to give the stem cells, but she refused, afraid for her daughter's life. However, Alexis Davis, Kristina's mother, confronted Sam, and yelled at her until she agrees to induce labor.

    Sam, though, collapsed during the confrontation from abruptio placentae, where the placenta suddenly detached, cutting off the little girl's blood and oxygen.[2] Doctors immediately performed a C-section on Sam, but her daughter was stillborn. Sonny allows them to take the little girl's umbilical cord for the stem cells needed to save Kristina's life.

    Jason, Lila's surrogate father, was the only person out of all her family members that ever got to see or hold her before she was buried. He described her as having dark, curly hair and a face shaped like Sam's.


    Lila's tombstone

    On her headstone, it says says "Baby Girl McCall." She died before her parents made her name official. The name "Lila" had been decided on after Jason’s grandmother, Lila Quartermaine, died while Sam was pregnant. Sam asked Jason if she could name her daughter Lila in honor of her, especially since Lila's maiden name was Morgan. There would be another Lila Morgan, and Jason told her that his grandmother would love it if they gave the baby her name.


    Lila McCall is born on-screen November 8, 2004 to parents Sam and Sonny. Unfortunately Lila is stillborn due a placenta abruption. Jason was present for the whole birth, and was the only person to hold her. Jason hugs Sonny as he tells Sonny his daughter was stillborn. Sonny cried in grief over his daughters death. Steve Webber, who delivered Lila via c-section gave Jason, Sonny, and Carly an update on Sam, that she was critical condition and might not make it. Sam beats the odds and survives.

    Sam never got to hold or see her little girl after she was born. Jason told her she was stillborn. Sam can’t take the news and goes looking for daughter. Jason stops her as she falls to the ground crying in Jason’s arms. Sonny comes to visit Sam after the birth and she tears right into Sonny for being a deadbeat father and taking their daughters bone marrow to save his other daughter. He left Sam angry and pissed off at Sonny for making the decision without her acknowledged.

    Alexis visits Sam bedside to thank Sam for saving her daughter. Sam is angry at Alexis and claims that she killed her little girl. This starts a nearly three year feud between them over Lila’s death. Jason also planned her memorial service, since Sam was in no position to do it herself while she dealt with losing Lila.

    Sam walked out in a snowstorm, where she passed out from shock on the hospital roof. She is found by a staffer and returned to her hospital bed where Jason checks up on her. Emily gave Sam some clothes at the hospital to wear at her Lila's funeral as a favor for being there for her.

    Sam mentions there will be no christening, no prom, no graduations, no weddings -- just this day to honor my daughter at her funeral service. She thanks Jason for being there for her and her daughter during her pregnancy, and for being the only person that ever cared about her and her daughter. They then arrive at the church for Lila's funeral service. Sam and Jason arrive at the church where a crying Sam stares at Alexis with Ric. Alexis leaves early as she felt guilty about her role in Lila's death.

    After the funeral service, Sam placed flowers on her grave. It bore a marker displaying ”Here’s the late beloved daughter of Samantha McCall and Michael Corinthos Jr."


    Sonny’s only visit to daughter Lila grave (November 2004)

    Sonny only visited her grave once after she was buried at her funeral. He left heartbroken with Lila's hospital bracelet in his hand to remember her by.

    Sam returns to the hospital after her daughter’s funeral and has a dream that she's holding her alive daughter, with Jason was beside her smiling. They both grieve for her after she wakes.

    Late November 2004, Sam is discharged from the hospital and nurse Elizabeth Webber told Sam about losing her child with Ric because of miscarriage back on May 23, 2003. This helps Sam with the grieving process. Courtney tells Jason he needs to help Sam grieve for her little girl. Courtney and Jason knew what it like to lose a child their baby girl due to miscarriage on August 20, 2003.

    Late November of 2004, Sam walks into Lila’s nursery, where she picks up a teddy bear and sits in a chair. She starts crying and dreams that Lila is in the crib. She cries when she sees there was no baby. She wakes up screaming in fear. Sonny walks in and hugs her. They then go to grieve their little girl together.

    Four months after Lila's death, Sam is stopped by a fellow patient of Dr. Meadow. She was holding her baby girl named Gabriella and asked about the time spent being pregnant together and how they talked about their babies. She asks how Sam’s baby girl was doing. Sam tells her she was stillborn, and the other mother expressed her sympathy as Jason looked on.

    November 8, 2005, Jason and Sam remember Lila on what would have been her first birthday and death anniversary during the Port Charles train wreck crisis.

    In 2006, Sam had a nightmare that Manny kidnapped an alive Lila. She also dreamed about her adoptive brother Danny who died from the Encephalitis outbreak, that he was taking care of Lila in Heaven.

    In early 2006, Sam went looking for her birth mother. Shortly after Danny’s death she discovers she was adopted. Robin Scorpio-Drake ran a test to see if Sam was a carrier of the same autism gene. The results revealed she didn’t have it. Danny's last words where "they pick the right little sister for me," leaving Sam suspicious. She meets with the principal at the private school of a teenage girl who gave birth to a baby around the time of her birth. The principal refused to disclose the information of the teenage mother, nor her whereabouts. Jason and Sam sneak into the principal's office and discover Alexis' school picture in the yearbook under her birth name.

    Later, Stan Johnson confirms Sam’s suspicions and talks about Kristina and Lila many times saying they were the prefect match for the bone marrow transplant. He also says how wrong Alexis was to kill her own granddaughter over own daughter Kristina. Alexis painted herself as mother of year for dumping her off. She does no wrong when it comes to Kristina and Molly. It's later revealed that Sam’s grandfather Mikkos took her, letting Alexis think she “died” while Mikkos sold her to the McCall family to be adopted.
