At one time, Victor was presumed dead, as soap characters often are, and he turned up on a Kansas farm and fell in love with the owner, Hope Adams (Signy Coleman). When Victor returned to town, he brought Hope with him and they eventually married. Hope gave birth to his son, whom she named Victor Newman Jr., but she divorced Victor and never told her son who his father was until she was on her deathbed, according to Soaps In Depth.
Victor Newman Jr. then changed his name to Adam Newman (Mark Grossman, above) and arrived in Genoa City with a chip on his shoulder. It was only in 2021 when he was able to forge a real relationship with his father, but his siblings, especially Victoria, still resent him. Adam expanded the family when he married Chelsea Lawson and she gave birth to his son, Connor (Judah Mackey), but Chelsea and Adam are now divorced and he is falling for Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope). Perhaps they will produce yet another Newman.
