Luke's Daughter All the Way:

Lesley Lu "Lulu" Spencer was born to Luke and Laura Spencer after their return to Port Charles, having been on the run for many years with their son, Lucky. When the baby developed aplastic anemia, it was learned that Laura had another son, Nikolas, with Stavros Cassadine, while living in captivity. The bone marrow donated by Nikolas saved Lulu. Her grandmother Lesley, Laura's mother, primarily raised the little girl after Laura was institutionalized. As Lulu grew older, Lesley found her more and more difficult to handle, and finally insisted that Luke take over. Lulu then went to live with Luke and his new wife, Tracy, in the Quartermaine mansion.

It was painful for both Lulu and Luke as they attempted to develop a relationship. She had a lot of anger about Luke being an erratic presence in her life; Luke was reminded not only of the Cassadines when he looked at her but also of Laura. Eventually he became impressed with how much she was like him and how well she had turned out.

Lulu Finds Romance

Lulu became attracted to Tracy's son, Dillon Quartermaine, who lived in the mansion also. Dillon, however, was married to Georgie Jones. Lulu aided the breakup of the couple and then lost her virginity to Dillon. She became pregnant and had an abortion.

Then Laura received an experimental drug, which brought her out of her catatonic state for a short time. Laura told Lulu that she did not kill her father, Rick Webber, as everyone assumed. Lulu cleared her mother of the crime with the help of Damien Spinelli.

She met the next man in her life, Logan Hayes, after the MetroCourt explosion. Lulu learned that Rick Webber's killer was Scott Baldwin and found out that Scott's son was Logan! The manipulative Maxie Jones got Logan to sleep with her, and told Lulu. Terribly upset, Lulu hitched a ride with a young man, Johnny Zacchara, the son of a vicious mobster. Johnny would become her next love.

Lulu went to work for Crimson Magazine under Kate Howard. She broke up with Johnny, but they reconciled. Johnny's father, Anthony Zacchara, believed it was because he threatened to have Luke arrested if Lulu did not stay with Johnny. He believed he could control Johnny better if he stayed with Lulu. However, Lulu and Johnny were in love; Anthony had nothing to do with it.

Lulu later met and fell in love with Dante Falconeri, though at the time he was undercover and using another name. She had no idea of his real identity, which was Olivia Falconeri's illegitimate son with Sonny Corinthos. Despite their on again/off again relationship, eventually the couple eloped.

Lots of Changes

Dante was unhappy when his new wife took over the Haunted Star in partnership with her old boyfriend, Johnny, but came to accept it. She and Dante began to try to have a family, but they could not. Finally they decided to go the surrogacy route, and Maxie Jones offered to carry their baby for them. Dante and Lulu were thrilled.

Lulu unfortunately was kidnapped by Stavros Cassadine, and believed dead. As the father of Nikolas, Stavros was always obsessed with Laura; now he transferred his obsession to Lulu. He placed her in a cryogenic chamber on Cassadine Island, where she was eventually found by her family. She was safe, but with complete amnesia and insisted that Stavros was her husband. Lulu had in fact gone through a ceremony with him, and the marriage had been consummated. Confused by Dante's feelings for her, she ran to Milo Giambetti's apartment and stayed there; the relationship was completely platonic. Once she calmed down and spoke with Dante, her memory slowly returned.

More Heartache

Now Dante and Lulu believe they are parents. The baby Maxie carried to term is not theirs, but hers and Spinelli's. Could Dr. Britt Westbourne have inseminated herself with Dante and Lulu's fertilized egg and passed her pregnancy off as being first due to Patrick, then later to Brad, the lab tech? It's possible. The truth will be revealed soon. In the meantime, they have bonded with the baby, named Connie, and are in the midst of a vicious custody battle.
