Young and the Restless: How is Devon Hamilton Tied to Chance and Katherine Chancellor?

Back years ago on Y&R, you may remember that Devon Hamilton had no idea who his biological father was when he first came to Genoa City. It wasn’t until Neil Winters (Kristoff St John) found Devon’s mother Yolanda “Harmony” Hamilton (Debbi Morgan) that she revealed to Devon that his father was Tucker McCall (Stephen Nichols). At the time, that didn’t mean much to Devon because he had no idea who Tucker was. He was raised by Neil and is still grieving his loss.

Later, it was revealed that Tucker was the son that Katherine Chancellor believed died as a baby. Mrs C only learned that Tucker was her son after he gained control of her company Chancellor Industries. He felt Katherine Chancellor owed him something for abandoning him as a child. He didn’t realize that she didn’t know that he was alive on Young and the Restless. So this was two generations of men that didn’t know their families.

Longtime Young and the Restless viewers remember Mrs C and her newfound son made peace. Tucker then had his own bombshell dropped on him when Yolanda and Neil brought Devon Hamilton to him. Then, Yolanda let him know that Devon was his son. Tucker didn’t believe it, and Devon was fine with it. He had Neil as a dad and he felt that he didn’t need Tucker.

But Katherine Chancellor wouldn’t be shut out of her new grandson’s life once she learned the truth. Katherine liked Devon from the first time Neil and Drucilla Winters (Victoria Rowell) brought him to visit her. Y&R fans watched as Katherine’s affection for her grandson grew and he grew to love her too. The two formed a bond almost instantly that lasted until Katherine Chancellor passed away on Young and the Restless.

Y&R history reminds that Devon bonded almost instantly with Katherine. But bonding with dad Tucker was not so easy. The young man seemed almost resistant to letting his biological father into his life even though Neil encouraged it. Devon told Neil he didn’t need another father. Eventually, Tucker discovered his son’s passion for music and that swayed him since Tucker had a record label. Later, Tucker went back to NYC and fans don’t hear much about Devon Hamilton’s biological father anymore.
