It was revealed last week that Stefano has fathered another child: Chad Peterson-Woods after a flashback Kate had of Stefano and Chad’s mother, Madeline, who died earlier in this summer in Salem from a fall down the famous pier stairs, making love. Now, Chad already has two dominant forces living in Salem at the present moment, an older brother EJ and an older sister Lexie. However, where are the other children Stefano has fathered over the years?
Stefano has seven children. It is a coincidence that his four other children are already deceased. Stefano’s had a daughter with Lee DuMonde named Renee who died in 1983. His next child was Tony DiMera, who he had with Daphne. Tony died last year, after an accident on the pier. After Tony, Stefano had an affair with an unknown woman, and gave birth to a daughter named Megan Hathaway, who later died in 1985. After Renee, Stefano had an affair with psychic Celeste Perreault, who fathered Alexandra Brooks, or affectionately known as Lexi. Stefano also fathered Benjy Hawk, with Ellen Hawk, who died 2007. EJ’s mother is Susan Banks.
Stefano’s offspring Lexi and EJ are dominant forces in Salem, and Chad has the potential to be a key new DiMera, following in either Lexi’s footsteps of tolerating her father due to blood relations, but staying away from the Phoenix or he could follow in EJ’s steps, and fully live the way of the Phoenix, participating in all the violent acts and schemes Stefano has grown famous for as a villain on Days of Our Lives. What do you think will be the next chapter for the New DiMera: Chad Peterson-Woods? Would you like Stefano to know the truth, or do you think he’ll meet the fate of Renee, Megan, Benjy, and Tony?
