Alexandria (Ali) was born onscreen on 1 January 2004, but that date was later changed to 1 January, 2000. Her birth month may also have been mentioned as July in the past.
The Early Years
Alexandria was born onscreen on 1 January 2004, but that date was later changed to 1 January, 2000. Presumably that will be updated again as the character is being recast as of August 2013 and will be aged in her late teens.
Alexandria is the daughter of Thorne Forrester and Darla Einstein.
As the result of a misunderstanding with ex-wife, Macy Alexander, Thorne got drunk and slept with Macy’s best friend Darla. Thorne was so inebriated that he actually thought he was sleeping with Macy! Darla, of course, ended up pregnant.
Darla was going to get an abortion because the event had ruined her friendship with Macy, but Thorne convinced Darla not to go through with it. Thorne and Macy were to raise Darla’s child as their own. This however never occurred. First Macy became involved with Deacon Sharpe and ultimately Macy died before Darla’s baby was born.
Thorne spent most of his time after Macy left him with Darla helping her through her pregnancy. When Darla gave birth to a baby girl she named the baby in honor of her friend – Alexandria (Macy’s last name is Alexander). Thorne and Darla decided to raise their child together.
Darla too met an early death at the hands of drunk driver, Taylor Hayes Forrester. Darla was helping Phoebe change a tire on the side of a foggy road at night. Darla fell into the path of an oncoming car (Taylor was on her way to help Phoebe and shouldn’t have been driving because she was drunk).
Alexandria took her mother’s death hard, but was comforted by Taylor. Taylor and Thorne became a couple and Taylor became a kind of surrogate mother for Alexandria.
Alexandria learned from Hope Logan (at a play date) that it had been Taylor driving the car that had killed Darla.
History almost repeated itself when Alexandria ran away. Taylor went looking for the little girl almost hitting her on the same foggy highway where Taylor had hit and killed Darla.
By this time Taylor and Thorne planned to marry. Alexandria couldn’t understand how Thorne could marry the woman who responsible for her mother’s death. Alexandria took out he anger on Taylor by scratching her eyes out of photos and shredding Taylor’s wedding dress.
Ultimately Taylor realized that the little girl would never accept her as her step-mother and she and Thorne called it quits, ending plans to marry. Thorne raised Alexandria as a single father – mostly off-screen.
The Adult Years
Ali returned to Los Angeles in November 2013 to take up a legal internship but after attending the interview decided a career in the law wasn’t for her. Grandfather Eric Forrester offered her an internship at Forrester Creations instead when Ali admitted to wanting to follow her passion for shoes. One day she would even like to have a Forrester shoe line. Eric decided that Ali should shadow Hope who Ali hero worshipped. Both girls were glad of the arrangement.
