Hollyoaks Wiki

Daniel Lomax Jr. is the son of Leela Lomax and Louis Loveday, the half-brother of Lisa and Zack Loveday, and Peri Lomax, and the foster half-brother of Sid Sumner.

He was born 3 months prematurely to Leela Lomax on her Christmas wedding day. He is named after his late grandfather, Danny Lomax.


7 months previously, Leela had discovered she was pregnant and a who's the daddy storyline was initiated as it was suspected that Leela had been unfaithful to her then-boyfriend Cameron, with whom she had fallen out with at the time. As soon as a baby boy was delivered to Leela, a boy she named Daniel after her late father Danny Lomax, he was rushed straight out of the ward and put on a ventilator to assist with his breathing. With Cameron besotted with the boy he believed to be his son, he maintained a vigil by Daniel, and soon noticed a strange mark on the baby's leg. After Cameron initially accused the doctors of harming 'his son', Tegan Lomax, Leela's sister, revealed privately to Daniel's mum that it was in fact a birthmark that was particularly rare in a child of two white parents, but much more common in those that were mixed-race. As this inevitably raised a question over Daniel's paternity, Tegan ran blood tests, the results of which concluded that Cameron could not be the biological father. Leela was forced to tell Cameron the truth shortly after, as Daniel's true skin colour would soon start to develop, and this news triggered Cameron's anger issues to resurface. Cameron then attacked Zack Loveday, believing that he was the one who had slept with his wife. However, with rumours rife that Zack was now a father, the true father paid a secret visit to his newborn son and the woman with whom he had had a one-night-stand, and he was revealed to be Louis Loveday, Zack's dad.
