Christopher Castillo is the biological child of Laurel Castillo and Wes Gibbins. Even though it was originally believed that the baby's father is Wes Gibbins, it was later revealed that Laurel slept with Wes and Frank at the time that her son was conceived. After completing a paternity test, it was evidently clear that the baby's father is Wes. The baby seems to have been conceived in the episode "Is Someone Really Dead?".
Laurel revealed to Annalise in the episode "It's for the Greater Good" that the baby is a boy. In the episode "Live. Live. Live.", Laurel gives birth to him prematurely, and he is ultimately saved by Annalise while the paramedics arrive. It's confirmed in "He's Dead" that Wes is the father, not Frank.
In the series finale "Stay", Christopher was first seen as a toddler with his mother Laurel in the courthouse for his godmother Annalise's trial and then as adult, after attending Annalise's funeral with his mother, he become a criminal law professor at Middleton University over the introductory class teaching Criminal Law 100, or as his godmother and mentor Annalise preferred to call the class "How To Get Away With Murder".

After Laurel suffers an accidental blow to the stomach, she becomes trapped in an elevator where she begins bleeding heavily. Laurel is found unconscious by Annalise where she spots that Laurel had given birth to the baby. Guided by a 911 operator, Annalise desperately struggles to remove the baby from the elevator and perform CPR. As the episode ends, the sound of a baby's cry is heard, showing that Annalise succeeded in saving his life. ("Live. Live. Live.")
- Seemingly conceived in "Is Someone Really Dead?".
- It is unknown whether Laurel knew she was pregnant before the fire (as we as viewers found out because she had tests done while she was in hospital). In "We're Bad People", while in a flashback, Laurel is talking to Wes in a bathtub about the condom breaking the last time they had sex. This might mean that she knew she was pregnant before the fire, but it is only hinted at, nothing more.
- The characters who first know however are: Oliver, Meggy, Bonnie and Michaela.
- We learn in "Who's Dead?" that Frank knows too, as he is the person Bonnie tells the news to over the phone.
- In "We're Bad People", we learn that both Asher and Connor find out, along with Laurel telling Asher, Connor and Michaela when they go and visit her, that the baby is Wes'.
