Ned is the son of Lord Larry Ashton and his ex-wife, Tracy Quartermaine. He is also the father of Brook Lynn Quartermaine with his ex-wife, Lois Cerullo.

Olivia is the daughter of Talia Falconeri and the mother of Dante, through a relationship with mob boss, Sonny Corinthos and Leo, through a one night stand with mob boss, Julian Jerome.


In 2013, when the two met they started off as friends as Olivia was with Sonny Corinthos (the father of her son, Dante). After Sonny cheated on Olivia with Ava Jerome and got her pregnant with Avery, Olivia broke up with him. Ned and Olivia grew closer as friends but then Ned started dating Alexis Davis again. On New Years Eve 2014, Julian Jerome (Alexis' ex) and Olivia were both very upset about Ned and Alexis being together instead of with them that they get a room and play cards. Then, they end up sleeping together and conceive their son, Leo.

On February 13, 2015 (Valentine's Day on the show), Olivia finds out she's pregnant with Julian's baby, and she tells Ned but then tries to lie and take it back but eventually tells him the truth, saying she doesn't want Julian to know. Eventually, Julian does find out about the baby and rightfully assumes that the baby is his but Ned decides to claim the baby as his own.

Olivia goes into labor at the 2013 Nurses' Ball and gives birth to a baby boy with Ned by her side. To keep Julian away from the baby, they fake his death. When Olivia brings Leo back to town as her adopted child, Ned breaks up with her due to all the lies.

Ned: "Well? Don't leave a guy hanging."
Olivia: "I c-- Ned, I-I can't."
Ned: "Can't? I -- I understand "No." What does "I can't" mean?"
Olivia: I-I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I-I can't."

Ned proposed to Olivia again at the Floating Rib on March 29, but she turns him down again. On March 30, after being held hostage at gunpoint, Olivia proposes to Ned and the two officially become engaged.

Ned: No! No! Tonight... it's about us, about our future. Olivia Falconeri... I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I want to call you my wife. I want us to be a family -- you, me, and little Leo. So will you do me the great honor of marrying me?"

Olivia: ...I'd probably never get out to the movies. [Voice breaking] And my little boy... he wouldn't have the absolute best father figure in the whole wide world. So, you can back off all you want, but you know what? I am coming for you, baby. Edward Lawrence Quartermaine Ashton... ...will you marry me?"
Ned: [Laughs] Nothing would make me prouder -- or happier."
