Background

Lucas and Brad adopt

In 2017, Brad and Lucas decide to adopt a baby. All through 2018, the couple await the birth of their child.

Birth parents Willow and Hank

Willow Tait and Hank Archer are revealed to be Wiley's biological parents.

He was born as the result of Hank manipulating Willow into an affair during her time as a Dawn of Day Cult member.

Storylines

Newborn Wiley.

Wiley Cooper-Jones was born at Mercy Grace Hospital July 25 (July 29, 2018 as shown on birth certificate) and was transported to General Hospital by Alexis Davis. He was to be given to his adopted parents Brad Cooper and Lucas Jones. Unfortunately Lucas had to perform a surgery that day and couldn’t see him, so Brad was there to name him with Alexis and Julian there to witness and take pictures.

Brad took the newborn Wiley home and put him to sleep in his crib where he sadly stopped breathing. Brad found Wiley unconscious, and desperately performed baby/infant CPR but unfortunately Wiley had died SIDS, almost 24 hours after his birth.

Nelle and Brad switch the babies.

He was then switched with the very much alive son of Michael Corinthos and Nelle Benson by Nelle and a distraught Brad.

Jonah's” Funeral.

Wiley's funeral was held at a church on August 21, 2018, with everyone believing him to be Jonah Corinthos.

On December 17, Carly and Sonny host a naming ceremony for "Wiley" where Sam and Michael are named as his godparents.

On December 21, Willow Tait is revealed to be his birth mother, and that Julian convinced her to give up her son to Brad and Lucas. Willow had no idea that her son died.

Wiley's parents fighting.

On March 2019, Willow is revealed to have been a member of Dawn of Day, a cult. On March 25, the cult leader Hank Archer, aka Shiloh is revealed to be Wiley's birth father - and went to court in an attempt to gain custody. At the time of his death in September of 2019, Hank did not know Wiley was not his son.

February 21, 2020, Willow learns from her boyfriend Chase that her son Wiley died of SIDS. Chase tells Willow about how Nelle and Brad were responsible for the baby switch while she is treated for a head injury caused by Nelle during her attempt to kidnap her own son Jonah.
