When she first surfaced, Gabi Hernandez was all sweetness and light; a bona fide good girl, who wanted to reconnect with her siblings and find true love. Things took a turn for the worse, however, as her romances continually went awry and her desperate, darker side emerged. Having learned her lessons and finally found love with Nick, she's looking forward to living happily ever after with him and her baby.
Gabriela Rodriguez (2009 to 2010)
Camila Banus (2010 to present)
The younger sister of Rafe, Dario and the late Arianna
Hernandez. While Gabi often talks to her mother on the phone,
the character has never been seen on camera.
Boys, Boys, Boys:
Gabi briefly went out with Chad DiMera, before she began
dating Will Horton. When Will realized he was gay, Gabi became
obsessed with Chad, but he didn’t return her feelings. She is
currently engaged to Nick Fallon.
Gabriela “Gabi” Josefina Hernandez arrived in Salem, because
her mother sent her there to check on her older siblings, Rafe
and Arianna. She promptly took up residence in a room above
the Brady Pub.
It didn’t take Gabi long to make friends with the other teens
in town. She dated Chad briefly, but the relationship ended
when his ex-girlfriend, Mia, decided she wanted to reconcile
with him. In time, Gabi became close friends with Will and
went to the Salem High School formal as his date.
When Gabi’s sister Arianna was killed by a hit-and-run driver
in 2010, she was devastated and leaned on Will for support.
Gabi was stunned to learn that Arianna had run into the
street, after a spat with Will. However, Will explained the
circumstances, and the twosome patched things up.
Friends and Lovers
Soon, Gabi and Will began dating and shared their first kiss.
The twosome decided to take their relationship to the next
level on the night of their high school graduation. Will
rented a hotel room, where the pair spent the night together
and made love for the first time.
Afterwards, Will became distant with Gabi. Despite Gabi’s
attempts to initiate intimacy between them, Will just wasn’t
interested. When Gabi broached the subject that there was
something wrong between them, Will countered by suggesting
they move in together. Gabi declined and broke things off with
Will, infuriating him. In time, however, Will came to the realization that he is gay and confessed to Gabi, and the
twosome agreed to be friends.
