Let us fill in the blanks! The character first appeared on B&B in 2001 and was played by child actor Daniel Smith for about a year.

Kristen Forrester and Tony Dominguez were on their honeymoon in Africa when they lost a roll of film and bonding with the young boy who returned it to them.

They were shocked to learn that Zende had been orphaned when his parents had died of AIDS.

Moreover, later, his brother died of the same disease in the orphanage where they lived.

After returning to Los Angeles, Kristen and Tony admitted that they could not stop thinking about Zende.

Diagnosed as HIV+ himself, Tony felt a special connection to Zende.

So they returned to Africa to start adoption proceedings and gave the boy both of their last names.
