Here Are All The Women Brady Has Loved On Days Of Our Lives

Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) is a man who cannot be alone on "Days of Our Lives" but he also can't seem to get it together with women as he self-sabotages relationships and falls in and out of love before you can blink. He also doesn't always have the best taste in women, ending up in multiple dysfunctional relationships over the years (via

As of this writing, Brady is back with his first love, Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin), but this pair has gone back and forth with each other so many times over the decades that it's anyone's bet how long this latest romance with Chloe lasts. There's also a crazed woman who is obsessed with Brady and keeps showing up to win him back. It's never easy for Brady Black, a legacy character fans have watched since the day he was born to his parents, Isabella Toscano (Staci Greason) and John Black (Drake Hogestyn), via Soap Central.

Brady falls for opera singer Chloe Lane

Although Brady was born in 1992, he was a full-fledged college student by the year 2000, played by actor Kyle Lowder. Brady quickly fell for Chloe Lane, an aspiring opera singer who was dating his cousin, Philip Kiriakis (Jay Kenneth Johnson). Poor Philip was crushed when Chloe chose Brady over him, and the pair married, leaving to Europe to further her career. However, things didn't go well for the pair outside of Salem as Brady started using drugs, a problem that has kept popping up through the years (via

When Brady returned to Salem in 2008, he was played by Eric Martsolf who remains in the role today (via Soaps In Depth). Brady has been with a number of women since then, but in 2021, he decided he was in love with Chloe again — while Chloe was dating Philip, again. Brady ended up the winner this time too, as Chloe and Brady are giving love another try in 2022 (via

Brady's on-again and off-again relationship with Nicole Walker

There had been an attraction between Brady Black and Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) for years, but she was also the first love of his brother, Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan), and Nicole could never stay away from Eric for long (via However, Brady and Nicole tried to get together romantically several times before it finally happened in 2017 when they went on the run with Nicole's daughter Holly. Brady ended up getting shot in that debacle (via Soap Hub) and he was incensed when Nicole quickly called off their romance to return to Eric, so he blackmailed her and threatened to tell the authorities she had killed Deimos Kiriakis (Vincent Irizarry).

That prompted Nicole to leave town and later be presumed dead. When Nicole finally got her life back together, she and Brady agreed they were always better off as friends and to never give romance a try again (via Soaps In Depth).

Brady's fleeting romances

In between Brady's sweeping romances, he had a few fleeting relationships, too. In 2008, soon after Eric Martsolf took over the role, he was reunited with his co-star from the canceled NBC soap "Passions" when Lindsay Hartley was hired to play Ariana Hernandez. On "Passions" they played Ethan and Theresa, according to Soap Opera Network. Brady proposed to Ariana like he does with most women, but she ended up getting killed in a car crash.

Back in 2011, Brady met a woman named Madison James (Sarah Joy Brown), who owned a cosmetics company Brady was doing business with. They even planned to marry, but on their wedding day, Madison was killed (via Brady also had a very brief romance with Maggie Kiriakis' (Suzanne Rogers) granddaughter, Melanie Jonas (Molly Burnett), but she let Brady down easy and left town to live a less dramatic life away from Salem. 

Brady falls for Kristen DiMera and Theresa Donovan

This is where Brady's love life starts to take a twisted turn. When Brady was a toddler, his father, John Black, nearly married Kristen DiMera and Kristen was Brady's caretaker for a while until "Days of Our Lives" decided the character would be unhinged rather than a heroine (via Soaps In Depth). For years, Kristen was presumed dead, but in 2012, Eileen Davidson brought Kristen back to Salem (via IMDb) where she and Brady fell in love. For Kristen, however, it was obsessive love.

Brady and Kristen were set to marry when Brady learned that Kristen had also slept with his brother, Eric, the priest who was officiating the wedding. That sent him on a bender using alcohol and drugs with Theresa Donovan (Jen Lilley) and the pair ended up marrying in Vegas. Once Brady sobered up, he wanted an annulment but then Theresa announced she was pregnant. Except she wasn't — or was she?

Eventually, in a story that could only happen on soaps, Theresa realized that a crazed Kristen somehow had an embryo moved from Theresa's uterus to Kristen's because Kristen was desperate to have Brady's child. Kristen gave birth to a little boy she named Christopher, but Brady and Theresa got him back, named him Tate, and decided to raise him together (via Soaps In Depth).

Kristen returns and things get weirder

After a series of events that made Brady and Theresa realize they were better off apart, with Theresa taking Tate and moving to California (via Soap Hub), Kristen DiMera (now played by Stacy Haiduk) made her way back to Salem, except she was wearing a special mask and electronic voice box that made her look and sound just like Nicole. Kristen used the mask to seduce Brady (via Soaps In Depth).

By some miracle, Kristen, who thought she could never conceive a child, became pregnant and she even seemed to reform. She and Brady fell in love again and Kristen gave birth to a little girl. They thought the baby had died, which prompted Kristen to run off and join a convent. However, when Brady and Kristen learned Rachel was alive they got her back and decided to go on the run together, as Kristen is frequently wanted by the law. Brady soon grew weary of life on the run and returned to Salem with Rachel as Kristen went to jail, and then escaped from jail. She is still on the run as of this writing and can always return to ruin Brady's latest romance with Chloe.
