Arthur Brian Fowler is the son of Stacey Fowler and Martin Fowler (non-biological). He was born during the episode broadcast on 24 December 2015. He is the result of a one-night stand with a Kush Kazemi, this happened a month before Stacey started dating Martin Fowler. When Stacey found out that she was pregnant, she initially told Martin that he was the father. However, she later admitted to her best friend and Kush's fiancée Shabnam Masood that Martin was not the biological father. On Shabnam and Kush's wedding day, Kush confronted Stacey and she told him that she thought he could be the father.
After her waters break the previous night, Stacey gives birth to Arthur at her daughter, Lily Branning's nativity play with the help from Martin, Shabnam and Babe Smith. After noticing how Kush is with Arthur, Shabnam confronts Stacey the following day and demands to know whether Kush is Arthur's father. Stacey, suffering from post-partum psychosis, denies it to Shabnam. Stacey, who believed Arthur was the son of God, was eventually sectioned against her will. Because of this Arthur is currently under the care of Martin, who still believes himself to be Arthur's father. Despite knowing Kush is the biological father.
