Sydney Anne DiMera is a character from the soap opera Days of Our Lives, portrayed by a number of child actors from 2009-14.
Sydney Anne DiMera is the daughter and second and youngest child of EJ DiMera and Sami Brady. Sydney is born in secret on January 28, 2009, while her mother is in witness protection, and she is switched shortly after birth with the daughter of a teenage mother, Mia McCormick, who has agreed to give her baby up for adoption to Nicole Walker. Nicole, who has miscarried her fiancé EJ's daughter, has arranged in secret to adopt Mia's baby and pass the child off as EJ's, fearful that she would lose EJ without a baby.
When Nicole learns that Sami had just recently given birth to her and EJ's daughter the same day Mia gave birth to hers, Nicole switches the babies, preferring to have EJ's biological daughter over an unrelated child. Nicole instantly bonds with Sydney, and vows to always protect her no matter what happens. Sami and EJ are none the wiser to Nicole's treachery, and Sami and Rafe bond with "Sami's" daughter, while EJ and Nicole bond with "their" daughter.
EJ eventually learns that Nicole had a miscarriage and he kicks Nicole and Sydney out of the mansion, not knowing the truth about Sydney. Eventually, Sami also learns that Sydney is her biological daughter. Soon after, EJ learns that Sydney is his biological child with Sami. However, the family reunion turns into a nightmare when Brady Black bails Nicole out of jail and she kidnaps Sydney. Nicole has a change of heart and decides to tell EJ and Sami where Sydney is, but she is knocked out by Anna DiMera, who takes Sydney. It is later revealed that Anna was hired by EJ to kidnap Sydney.
Sydney becomes the subject of many custody battles between EJ and Sami over the next few years, with Nicole involved, as well, during the time she is married to EJ. They later come to an agreement, though, and Sydney is able to stay with her entire family, including her siblings, Johnny DiMera, Allie Horton and Will Horton. Sydney became an aunt when Gabi Hernandez gave birth to Arianna Horton, half-brother Will's daughter In 2013 and Sydney becomes a aunt again to half-sister Allie child in 2020.
