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 her father being an erratic presence in her life;

In turn, he 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.

A little later, Laura received an experimental drug which brought her out of her catatonic state for a short time.

Laura told her daughter 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.

Lulu 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 slept with Logan, and told Lulu. Terribly upset, Lulu ran away and hitched a ride with a young man, Johnny Zacchara, the son of a vicious mobster. Johnny would become her next love.

Lulu continued to see Johny and went to work for Crimson Magazine under Kate Howard. At one point, 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 thought he could control Johnny better if he stayed with Lulu. However, the couple was 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; he 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 he came to accept it.

She and Dante began working on having a family, but they were unsuccessful. Finally they decided to go the surrogacy route, and Maxie offered to carry their baby for them.

Dante and Lulu were thrilled.

Lulu, alas, was kidnapped by Stavros Cassadine and believed dead. As Nikolas' father, Stavros was always obsessed with Laura; now he transferred his obsession to the next generation.

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, insisting 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

When Maxie gave birth to a baby girl, Dante and Lulu believed they were parents. But the baby Maxie carried was not theirs, but hers and Spinelli's.

Both sets of parents wound up in a vicious custody battle. The winner? Spinelli, who moved to Portland with Ellie and took the baby.

Dr. Britt Westbourne inseminated herself with the couple's fertilized egg and passed her pregnancy off as being due to Patrick, then later to Brad, the lab tech. She planned to deal with the fact that the baby didn't have an ounce of Asian blood later.

Finally, the joyous day arrived when the truth was revealed, and Dante and Lulu finally brought home their baby boy, Rocco.

Since there was still a viable embryo, Lulu investigated the possibility that she would be able to carry her own child. She learned it was possible and decided to move forward. Before she could, she and Maxie were kidnapped by Levi Dunkleman, aka Peter Harrell, Jr., and held them hostage. 

The two women were rescued, but there were more tough times ahead for Lulu. Her father developed a new personality and was found to have Dissociative IdentityDisorder.

Then more Spencers came into her life - Patricia Spencer, her aunt, who passed away a short time later, and Patricia's daughter, Valerie Spencer. Valerie developed a crush on Dante.

Lulu and her parents went searching for Lucky in Canada and were warned to keep it top secret.

Lulu went along and told Dante that her grandmother Lesley in Italy needed help, and that she was traveling with Laura. Dante learned that not only was she in Canada, but Dillon had accompanied her

Dante panicked and thought his wife was having an affair. As a result, he slept with Valerie.

When he learned the truth, he begged her not to tell their secret.

Valerie started dating Dillon, and the two of them confessed their feelings, Valerie for Dante, admitting she slept with him, and Dillon for Lulu, his ex.

It was during the time that Dillon was making his movie, and the confessions were taped and mistakenly shown during a fundraiser at the Haunted Star.

Lulu left Dante, though he wants to work things out. Laura convinced Lulu to try to reconcile with her husband.

Around that time, Valerie dropped in to watch a football game with Dante, who was alone on Thanksgiving, and they slept together again.

Will their marriage survive? It isn't clear, but in any event, Lulu will. She's her father's daughter after all.
