An unnamed man is the eldest child and only son of Alice and Hal Cooper as well as the older brother of Betty and Polly Cooper. He was given up for adoption soon after his birth and his existence was kept secret by his biological parents for many years.
On the night that Hal and Alice were crowned King and Queen of their homecoming dance, the couple were witnessed fighting by FP Jones; Alice had just told Hal that she was pregnant. This revelation led to an argument as Hal wanted Alice to have an abortion believing they were not ready to be parents, however, Alice was unwilling to do so.
The following day, Alice checked herself into the Sisters of Quiet Mercy, and five months later she gave birth to a baby boy which the sisters arranged to be adopted quietly. Hal and Alice then kept the existence of their son a complete secret.
