Cain had his first child Debbie with his second cousin Charity Dingle.

When Cain was 14 an Charity was 12 the two had a fling. However Cain had no idea that Charity was pregnant.

Charity gave birth to a baby girl. Charity’s dad Obadiah forced Charity to give the baby up to his friend Pat.

Pat named the baby girl Debbie and raised her until Debbie was a teenager. Debbie went into foster care when Pat fell ill and died.

She was looked after by Paddy and Emily Kirk. Shortly after Debbie’s arrival in 2002, Charity and Cain realised she was the daughter they were forced to give up.

Two years after Debbie’s birth, Cain had a relationship with Cara Robinson. Cara worked in a bar.

However Shadrach had a racist attitude towards Cara and often threatened her to keep away from Cain.

Cain’s mother Faith learnt that Cara was pregnant with Cain’s child. She coerced Cara into leaving and not telling Cain about the baby, knowing Shadrach wouldn’t approve of Cain raising a mixed-raced child.

Cain didn’t know anything of Nate’s existence until 2019 when farmhand Nate revealed he had been having an affair with Cain’s wife Moira as revenge for abandoning him.

However when Nate learnt that Cain knew nothing about him, he was full of regret.

Who are the mum’s of Cain’s youngest children Kyle and Isaac?

In 2011, Cain slept with 17-year-old Amy Wyatt. Amy discovered she was pregnant with Cain’s son, however when she told him, he threatened her and told her to get an abortion.

But Amy learnt she was too far along to have a termination.

Cain’s younger half-sister Belle found out about the pregnancy however Amy told her to keep it a secret.
