Miranda Montgomery is Port Charles High School graduate and a part time Port Charles University student. Miranda was first scene in the pilot episode when she was a junior. since Miranda's mother is a lesbian, like her younger sister, Miranda learned at an early age that love is love, no matter your race, gender, religion or nationality. Miranda is seen to be timid and shy but once you get to know her, she is very sweet and compassionate. she is currently a single teen mom, AJ Chandler, her ex-boyfriend died before Miranda even knew she was pregnant. Miranda does her best to be a good mom and lives with her mom and younger sister who help out with her daughter, Amanda Joy Chandler. Miranda was best friends with Hope Thornhart, Grace Baker, and AJ Chandler in high school and now they are all dead and that hit Miranda hard, especially since its only Grace got to meet her daughter. Miranda grew up best friends with AJ it took until season 4 for them to finally get together but then he was killed. Miranda is the daughter of Bianca Montgomery, sister of Gabbi Montgomery, niece of Kendall Hart, cousin of Yasmin Castillo, Spike Lavery and Ian Slater and the grandaughter of Erica Kane.
Miranda is born during a storm where her mother is stranded in a cabin with Babe Carey, one of her mother's best friends. With Babe's help, Miranda is born. Her name is chosen because her mother loves the first name (taken from the Shakespearean play The Tempest), and her middle name comes from her late great-grandmother, Mona Kane Tyler. Although her father is a Cambias, her mother uses her surname, Montgomery, for her daughter's last name.
Miranda's first few months are hectic. Far more hectic than they should be. This begins with her mother believing her to be dead due to news from a man named Paul Cramer, but she is not. She has been switched by Paul as he has taken then-wife Babe's son, Adam Chandler III, and passed him off to his sister, Kelly Cramer, back in Llanview, Pennsylvania
He then presents Miranda to Babe and her husband at the time, JR Chandler, as their own daughter. JR promptly names her Bess, short for Elizabeth Charlotte Chandler.
For months, Bianca is led to believe that her baby has died. In fact, it is Miranda's half-aunt, Kendall, who has to tell Bianca that Miranda is dead. All this time, she is being raised by JR and Babe. Bianca is so shaken by this, that she almost kidnaps her own daughter, not even knowing that the little girl is her child. JR wants Bianca in jail, but Babe intercedes on her behalf, having discovered that Bess is actually Bianca's biological daughter, though she does not tell this to Bianca due to her own personal reasons. She goes so far as to ask Bianca to be Bess' godmother, a situation JR resents. Babe also changes Bess' middle name to Miranda to honor Bianca. JR, on the other hand, is not so pleased about this, and even hires a nanny to watch Bianca when she makes a visit. JR is just as unaware of the truth regarding Bess as Bianca is.
On April 26, 2007, Miranda moves back to Paris with her mother. Bianca cites the fact that Miranda has friends in Paris and that they had a life there that she wants them to get back to. This may bring about a reconciliation between Bianca and Maggie, who returned to Paris in February, both of whom considered themselves a family with Miranda prior to fall of 2006.
In October 2008, Miranda returns to town with a pregnant Bianca and her fiancée. As Bianca once again gives birth to a baby girl during a storm, it is revealed that Zach is baby Gabrielle's father, making her Miranda's cousin and half-sister.
Miranda was part of her mother's wedding to Reese Williams. She also danced with them during their first dance. When the marriage fell apart, Miranda went back to Paris with her mother and sister.
When her mother returned to Pine Valley, Bianca said that she did not bring her daughters back with her because of Erica being missing. Jackson Montgomery has Miranda and Gabby flown to Pine Valley after Erica is back. Miranda, Gabby, and Bianca are living at Wildwind along with Caleb Cooney, their late friend, Palmer Cortlandt's.
