Matthew Jesus McQueen is the son of John Paul McQueen and Craig Dean . Chloe was a surrogate for John Paul and Craig but when she was 9 months pregnant John Paul told her they didn't want the baby. When John Paul was back in the McQueen's house Chloe left the baby outside and Jacqui found him. When Myra was drunk she named the baby 'Jesus'. Carmel bonded with the baby but John Paul struggled to. Later John Paul revealed to Nancy Osbourne that he was the father and him and Craig had broken up. The next day John Paul went to the hospital with Myra where he told her that he is the father, while walking home they see Carmel and she says she has phoned Social Services, Myra tells John Paul to tell Carmel but he says it's for the best. The next day Myra tries to convince John Paul to keep the baby, when Carmel and Myra was about to bring the baby to Social Services. John Paul comes to senses just in and returns home before leaving for Social Services. He reveals that he's the baby's father and that he's going to keep him. He names the baby 'Matthew Jesus McQueen' as a dedication to Myra's first born son.

When his father isn't at home, Matthew is being looked after by his great grandmother Marlena or his aunts Carmel or Mercedes. They also took care of him when his father went to prison in the spring of 2014.

Matthew and his father leave the village for Singapore when he gets a new teaching job. John Paul soon gets a call from Craig, his other father, which hints at a family reunion between the three. When his grandmother Frankie passes away, it is revealed that Craig is living in Singapore. This was seemingly confirming their reunion and now he gets to be raised by both of his fathers.
