Belle later married Philip, and Shawn and Mimi (Belle's best friend) followed suit.
Belle discovered she was pregnant and since she didn't remember having sex with Shawn assumed the baby, Claire, was Philip's.
Over the years, Belle has been portrayed as a teenager and adult by three actresses including Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital), Charity Rahmer and most recently Martha Madison.
Shawn was played by Jason Cook and until Monday, Brandon Beemer.
Once she got her daughter back, Belle left Philip and Shawn left Mimi after he learned she knew Claire was his all along.
After nearly a year off-screen, Storms returned as Maxie on September 5, 2012.
Storms took maternity leave on January 2, 2014 and returned on April 8, 2014. She has a younger sister named Gretchen, a brother named Austin and a stepbrother named Chris.
After the "death" of her father, John Black, Belle acted on her feelings and slept with Philip.
She eventually decided Shawn was the man for her, but he found out about her affair and ended things with Belle.
