In the Season 6 premiere, Amy confides in Johnny about her upbringing. Originally from Puerto Rico, she moved to the United States at the age of 5. She recalls the challenges of fitting in and making friends, disclosing that her dad would have to beg people at Church to spend time with her.

That very night, her mother excitedly announced her pregnancy, and Amy's wish came true with the arrival of a baby boy whom she considers "her person.
