Despite the divorce, lingering feelings between the two still remain. Chelsea never shared the news of her second pregnancy with Adam and is continuing to keep him in the dark about their child by claiming, Dylan McAvoy as the father of her child. On the day that Riley was to be born, Adam gave Chelsea a present that he bought for Riley. He told her to use it for her new child, still unaware that the child Chelsea is carrying is his. Inside the present, Chelsea finds a blue baby blanket and a note that Adam wrote for Riley, expressing his excitement about having a child. On Christmas Day 2012, Adam has a dream about what life would have been like if Riley had survived.
