Wiley Cooper-Jones was a fictional character on the ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital. He was the biological son of the late, Hank Archer aka Shiloh and Willow Tait. He was the adoptive son of Brad Cooper and Lucas Jones.


In 2017, Brad and Lucas decide to adopt a baby.

All through 2018, the couple await the birth of their child.

On July 25, their son is born but sadly he dies 24 hours later of SIDS.

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

Wiley's funeral was held at a church on August 21, 2018, although everyone still believes 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 mother, and that Julian convinced her to give up her son to Brad and Lucas. Willow has no idea that her son died.

On March 2019, Willow is revealed to have been a member of Dawn of Day, a cult. On March 25, Dawn of Day cult leader Hank Archer, aka Shiloh is revealed to be Wiley's father who died in September 2019.
