David Ridgeway is a fictional character from the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives, portrayed by child actors Dexter and Jaxton Ellis in 2019. After the Time Jump (2019-2020), the role was recast with Caleb & Kyler Ends taking over.


David Ridgeway is the son of former therapist Jordan Ridgeway and Christian Maddox. He is the nephew of supposedly reformed serial killer Ben Weston and a unnamed aunt. Also he is the grandson of one of Days' most dangerous villains Orpheus and the step-grandson of well known criminal Clyde Weston and is the grandson of the late Mrs. Weston.


David was born off-screen when his mother Jordan was pregnant and left town and move to California she kept quiet about her pregnancy from everyone even her half-brother Ben, she feared for her son David being around him because of his dark past with Chad and Abigail DiMera's son Thomas DiMera, who was thought to be Ben's at the time he was born and he kidnapped their son but they find out Ben is not Thomas's father soon after reuniting with their son.

On March 29, 2019, it was revealed Jordan has a son unknown to everyone, she then tells she didn't set the cabin on fire or didn't mean to kidnap Chad and Abigail's newborn daughter, Charlotte DiMera, but also confessed she has a son to her ex-boyfriend Rafe Hernandez, then his mother Jordan cries into Rafe's arms and hug each other.

On April 2019, Jordan sends Rafe to California to check on and bring her son David to Salem.

David then lived with Rafe as his legal guardian. Ben Weston wanted to visit his nephew, but Jordan had specifically requested that he be kept away from her son. In September 2018, Jordan went to live with Rafe and David.

During David’s first birthday party, Jordan poisoned a cupcake meant for Ciara Brady, but accidentally poisoned Rafe. Jordan planned to take David and flee, but was murdered by his biological father before they could leave town.
