John is the two-year-old son of Amy and Ricky. While Amy was pregnant with him, she considered putting him up for adoption, but Ashley talked her into keeping him for which Amy gave her the honor of naming him. Ashley picked John because she said his life was going to complicated enough and needed a simple name. Because of Ricky's abusive past with his own father, everyone was concerned that Ricky would be a danger to John, but Ricky was able to convince everyone that he'll be the father to John that he never got to have and would never hurt him.
