History of Antonio Vega:

Antonio grew up in Angel Square and spent time in a gang, but after serving 7 years in prison he came out determined to make a better life for himself. After Antonio wed Andrea "Andy" Harrison, he won a grant to attend law school at Berkeley and moved to California. A divorced Antonio returned to Llanview in 1998.

While taking a class at Llanview University, Antonio became involved with Keri Reynolds. After finding out that her biological father was none other than RJ Gannon, their relationship became increasingly more difficult. Later, Antonio and Keri broke up.

Antonio, who was depressed over his breakup with Keri, had a one night stand with a woman named Liz, but was shocked to later find out it was Keri's mother. Liz became pregnant with his baby, but unable to carry it, Keri became the surrogate. Keri was unaware she was already pregnant with her and Antonio's baby. Eventually RJ learned the truth about the affair. Keri gave birth to Jamie, and she was stunned to find out the baby was hers. Keri decided not to tell Antonio and fled town. Antonio was devastated when he found out Keri, Liz and the baby all died in a plane crash.

After saving Jessica Buchanan from her father Mitch Laurence, the two fell in love. But things were about to change when Keri returned to town with their baby. Antonio was glad to find out Jamie was his, but rejected Keri's request to reconcile. Later, a distraught Keri committed sucide and a devasted RJ framed Antonio for her murder. Jessica eventually helped prove his innocence and they went on with their lives with Jamie. Antonio's world, however, was about to be turned completely upside down!

While investigating the notorious crime lord Manuel Santi, he eventually learned the truth that he was his son. Learning of his true identity, Antonio isolated himself from his family, including Jessica.

Antonio reaffirmed his love and committment to Jessica after she started to receive threathing notes. What Antonio didn't know was that Jessica's alter-ego Tess was actually her stalker. Dealing with Jessica's DID put Jessica and Antonio's relationship through the ringer after her alter fell in love with Nash Brenanan, and eventually becoming pregnant with his child. Tess gave birth to a baby girl named Bree. After Jessica finally became fully integrated, Antonio and Jessica married. However, Jessica finally gave in to her love for Nash and her affair with him broke up his marriage for good. Currently dating Talia Sahid.
