Naomi is the daughter of Charles Anderson and his first wife Esme.

What happened between Charles and Esme?

When Esme and Charles were together Esme was struggling to cope and felt like she was failing Ethan.

Esme, who was actually struggling with post-natal depression, left Charles and Ethan.

She tried to get back in contact with Charles after leaving but he rejected her attempts.

However that Charles didn’t know was Esme was pregnant with their second child.

When she was eight months pregnant she arranged to meet up with Charles and Ethan, but she couldn’t go through with it, fearing Charles wouldn’t react well to her pregnancy.

Esme gave birth to a baby girl called Naomi.

However she started to struggle with post-natal depression again and made the tough decision to put Naomi up up for adoption.

In 2020, Esme and Naomi got in contact and have managed to build a good relationship.
