AJ's parents Angelo and Beverly met on a drunken night out, where they "fake" married and Beverly became pregnant after their one night stand. The day after the encounter, Angelo could not remember what Beverly looked like, only that they had really married, he remembered her name, and that she had black hair. He decided not to think about it too much as he was young, single, and didn't want to be tied down, especially to a woman he met the night before. AJ was born soon after, and for unknown reasons Beverly couldn't care for him and gave him to Angelo, who took him in and raised him as a single father.
On AJ's birthday, Beverly returned, and Angelo and AJ welcomed her with open arms. AJ was glad to have his mother back, but soon became skeptical over her identity. AJ picked up on some of Beverly's strange behaviours, such as being scared of the kitchen, having two fire alarms, being overly protective of AJ, and having a downstairs bedroom locked at all times. Angelo failed to pick up on these behaviors and even began planning a second wedding with Beverly. AJ searched up Beverly on the internet, and found out that "Beverly" was a fraud, the real Beverly had died of an illness shortly after giving birth to AJ. AJ found the key to "Beverly"'s locked room, and found an urn for a girl named Daisy Friedman. AJ was caught by "Beverly" who locked him up in the room. As "Beverly" and Angelo got married, AJ broke out of the room and interrupted, but the wedding had already finished. AJ revealed the information, as well as two other wedding guests who revealed that "Beverly"'s real name is Siobhan Friedman and that Daisy is her daughter who died in a fire. Siobhan also reveals she is pregnant with Angelo's twins, and Angelo allows her to stay, infuriating AJ. AJ soon warmed up to Siobhan. AJ became a big brother to Angie and Daisy. He was devastated when Siobhan died, as well as his uncle Chadwick and aunt Mia. Due to bad memories in Desertia, Angelo moved the family to a new house in Downtown, where they now live happily and in peace.
