Adam Chandler III, often referred to as "AJ", is a fictional character from the soap opera All My Children. He is the son of JR Chandler and Babe Carey Chandler.

He is a member of the powerful and wealthy Chandler family.

Character's background[]

In 2004, a MEDEVAC helicopter carrying Bianca Montgomery and Babe Carey — and piloted by Babe's ex-husband Paul Cramer — crashes in a storm. Both women are pregnant and give birth during the crisis on March 23, 2004. Paul's half-sister Kelly from nearby Llanview has just miscarried her own baby; Paul gives Babe's son to Kelly and gives Bianca's daughter to Babe, telling Bianca that her baby died. Unaware of the infant's origins, Kelly brings Babe and JR's son back to Llanview, passing him off as her child with her husband Kevin Buchanan.

Kevin and Kelly name the baby Asa "Ace" Buchanan II after Kevin's grandfather Asa Buchanan. Over the next year their marriage crumbles, and Kevin secures custody. Meanwhile, a devastated Kelly discovers that Paul had stolen Ace from his mother; Paul, desperate for cash, blackmails Kelly by threatening to reveal the secret to Kevin and Llanview. Armed with the truth, Kelly realizes they must return the child to his parents; though broken hearted, they do.

Babe and JR wage their own custody battle over their son, now named Adam Chandler III. At one point Babe goes on the run with JR's former stepbrother Jamie Martin, giving her son the alias James Carey. He is often referred to as "Little Adam" or "Little A" by his parents.

In mid 2008, JR and Babe reunite and take their time in their new relationship. Babe soon dies due to injuries caused by a tornado. Little Adam is now being raised by his father after his mother's death. She was killed on October 23, 2008 to save him from being killed.

After his mother's death, Tad and Krystal divorce and David and Krystal get back together and become married in 2009. David seeks custody of Little Adam by making JR seem like an unfit father, but JR fights him on this. Due to the judge at the custody hearing not being able to decide which of the two men Little Adam would be better off with, Jesse and Angie get temporary custody of him. JR gets Little Adam back after Krystal lies on the stand to protect herself in order to keep Adam from revealing a secret about her.

His dad JR married his aunt Marissa on October 21, 2009. While JR is dealing with lymphoma.
