Who are Martin’s children in EastEnders?

Martin has two biological children: Bex Fowler and Hope Fowler. He was also stepfather to Stacey’s children Lily and Arthur.

But despite Martin and Stacey having split, he still sees them as his own children.

EastEnders: Martin’s children – Bex Fowler

Bex is the daughter of Martin and Sonia Jackson, born in 2000.

When they were young teenagers, Martin and Sonia slept together. This led to Sonia falling pregnant with Bex.

When Sonia gave birth to her daughter, she named her Chloe. Chloe was given up for adoption, where she was renamed Rebecca.

In 2005 Bex’s adoptive parents Neil and Sue died in a car crash. She then went to live with Sue’s mother Margaret.

After Margaret’s death, she went to live with Martin and his mum Pauline. Eventually Martin and Sonia reunited and raised Bex together.

Lily’s biological father is Ryan Malloy. She was born in 2010. However when Stacey and Martin got together, he became her father figure.

Arthur was conceived as Stacey had a one-night-stand with Martin’s best friend Kush Kazemi. This happened a month before Stacey slept with Martin.

Arthur was born in 2015. At first Martin believed he was Arthur’s father, but eventually it was revealed Kush is the biological dad.

Whilst Kush is still in Arthur’s life, both Kush and Martin are a dad to him.

However it was a lie, and he only told Stacey this so she would keep away from Walford and Ben Mitchell, who wanted to hurt her.

She returned to Albert Square last year after discovering Martin was dating her best friend Ruby.

Ruby and Martin went on a trip and shocked everyone when they retuned home married.
