Thomas Alfred Charles "Tommy" Moon born on the 30th December 2010 is the son of Kat Slater and Michael Moon however Michael only showed any interest in his daughter Scarlett whereas Kat's husband Alfie loved Tommy and therefore adopted him.
Tommy was born 30 December 2010. In the following episode to Kat is taken to hospital and leaves her father Charlie Slater to look after Tommy. However, Charlie joins a party downstairs in The Queen Victoria public house.
Meanwhile, Ronnie Branning discovers that her own son, James Branning, who was born on the same day as Kat's, has died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and desperately tries to get help. When she hears Tommy crying, she sneaks into The Queen Victoria and decides to swap the children.
Ronnie Mitchell eventually regrets her actions but by the time she decides to swap them back, James has been found by Alfie and Jack has returned to the country and meets Tommy, thinking he is James. When Kat sees the baby in hospital, she refuses to believe it is Tommy as he looks different, but Alfie convinces her it's because he has died. When a midwife visits Ronnie, she is surprised at how quickly James' club foot appears to have gone.
Ronnie is denied access to the funeral by Kat but goes anyway, hiding behind a tree. She later realises she has to put an end to the situation and takes Tommy back to Kat during the wake. Ronnie's attempts to explain that the baby is Tommy are all misunderstood and Kat demands that the baby be taken away from her.
Ronnie continues to care for Tommy but starts behaving erratically.

She tells Jack that the baby is not his son, and then explains to Kat what happened on the night James died. Kat refuses to believe it but takes Tommy, while Ronnie hands herself into the police.
