Character History


Ben Wheeler

Ben is Emma's father and sole legal guardian. He did not know she existed until Emma was dropped on his doormat at 3 months old, and Ben briefly planned on letting Emma be adopted by another family who were seeking a baby. However, after spending a night alone with her, he realized he loved her and couldn't let her go. Emma lives in Ben's apartment, and sleeps in the same room as him. Though all of Ben's friends and family essentially help raise her, no one questions Ben's authority as her father and defer to him on important matters regarding her. Emma's first word was "dada", which she said in House of Cards.

Danny Wheeler

Danny is Emma's uncle, and though it seems he doesn't spend as much time with her, they share a great bond. Tucker Marshall Dobbs

Riley Perrin

Riley Perrin is the girl next door who loved Ben her whole life. Her and Ben become closer and soon becomes Emma's godmother and in the event of Ben's death, legal guadrian.

  • The first thing Emma got from Ben was a stuffed lamb.
