Courtney along with Nikolas and many other residents of Port Charles were suffering from a deadly encephalitis plagne. Spencer was delivered by emergancy c-section and was severely premature. Courtney named him John Michael Jacks, after Jax's late father when she believed Jax to be the father. Overwhelmed with guilt, Jax confessed to Courtney that Nikolas was the baby's biological father and the he had the test changed so that it would look like he was the father. Courtney tries to tell Nikolas this, but by the time he arrives, Courtney is severely weakened and dies without telling Nikolas the truth.
