Ciara Alice Brady is the daughter of Beauregard "Bo" and Hope (Williams) Brady. Ciara has three older siblings, two brothers Shawn-Douglas "Shawn" Brady and the late Beauregard "Zack" Brady as well as a half-sister Chelsea Brady.
While grieving over the death of their young son, Zack, Hope and Bo Brady found comfort in one another, and Ciara was conceived, although it took several months for Hope to learn she was pregnant.

Tests were run and it was "determined" that Hope's unborn child was Patrick's. Unbeknown to Hope and Bo, Patrick had paid the doctor to fix the test. Despite believing Patrick to be the father of her unborn child, Bo and Hope got back together, pushing Patrick to the point he decided he needed to kidnap Hope. On December 29, 2006, Ciara was born in a warehouse, delivered by Bo. Patrick revealed her true paternity before being arrested.
Ciara's name was selected by fans in an online poll. Out of the five original choices, narrowed down to three, Ciara Alice Brady was the winner.
