Young Entertainment would like to wish a happy birthday to Haley James Scott! Haley born on February 1, 1988, is one of the most beloved characters from One Tree Hill. Haley was a whiz kid in high school and became a teacher. Her passion for helping others finally became her career. What makes Haley such a gem is her authenticity and loyalty to the people she cares about.

Haley is the wife of Nathan Scott and their relationship is only the best thing to ever happen to television. Their relationship wasn’t always sunshine, though. During high school, Haley despised Nathan because of her friendship with Lucas Scott, which is also the best friendship to happen on television. Nathan asked Haley to tutor him to get back at Lucas but the two began to have feelings for one another and it only grew from there. Haley saw the best in Nathan. When they were in high school, Haley and Nathan expected their first baby, Jamie, who could quite possibly be the cutest baby to face the screen. Later on, Haley and Nathan had their second child, Lydia. As a mother and wife, Haley always told Nathan and her kids to walk away from a difficult situation, but she tended not to take that advice for herself. Hey, no complaining here. If someone came after a loved one of Haley, she was known to slap, push, or even verbally assault people. Gotta protect your tribe, right?

Despite her love for friends and family, Haley had family problems of her own, but who doesn’t? Well having a troubled sister who took your husband’s virginity and is also blackmailing you may be too much for anyone to handle. Haley’s older sister, Taylor, basically lied her way into Haley and Nathan’s home. She sent flirty emails to Chris Keller AS Haley who, we already know, Haley had a complicated relationship with. Because Haley has such a kind heart, she even tried to give Taylor money after Nathan forces Taylor to leave their home.

Haley is admired for her dedication to her friends and family and her passion for teaching, but do not be mistaken. She knows how to take some me-time. Haley decided to pursue music for a short time and went on tour. After singing in front of crowds night after night, Haley decided it was time to get back to her family.

Even as the years go by, One Tree Hill continues to bring love, friendship, and family to televisions screens, and Haley is at the heart of it all.

“We spend so much time wanting, pursuing, wishing. But ambition is good. Chasing things with integrity is good. Dreaming”
―Haley James Scott

“I believe in true love, I believe in love at first sight, I believe love conquers all. And that doesn’t mean there’s not gonna be hard days or difficult things to deal with, because there will be. But finding that person who does it for you and knowing that person loves you back just makes everything so much easier.”
