All Of Tripp's Failed Attempts At Love On Days Of Our Lives

"Days of Our Lives" fans have come to love Tripp Dalton Johnson (Lucas Adams) over the years.

Ava and Steve went out looking for their child but were told that their son had died. However, after Ava's presumed death, Steve found out that the child was actually alive and eventually tracked down Tripp.

Tripp came to Salem with his father to meet the rest of his family. However, he had many questions about his biological mother. The Johnson family was reluctant to answer those questions as Tripp's half-brother, Joey Johnson, was believed to be the person who killed Ava. He went through some struggles in Salem, but eventually cleaned up his act and even went on to become a doctor, per Soaps in Depth. When Ava returned to Salem alive, the mother and son formed a bond.
