Frasier Wiki

David Crane is the son of Niles Crane and Daphne Moon-Crane. Daphne's pregnancy is revealed in the eleventh season premiere, No Sex Please, We're Skittish. In the series finale, Daphne gives birth to David at veterinarian clinic on the same day his grandfather, Martin Crane, marries Ronee Lawrence.


David is born on May 15, 2004 - on the same day Martin is to wed Ronee Lawrence. While at the venue where the wedding will take place, Eddie accidentally eats the wedding rings, resulting in Niles and Daphne having to take him to the vet. Once there, Daphne's water breaks and she goes into labor. Upon receiving the news, Frasier, Martin and Ronee arrive at the vet to meet David and fall in love with him instantly. Ronee then suggests that she and Martin get married at the clinic, so Daphne and Niles do not miss out, and Frasier marries them on the spot.

During Daphne's pregnancy, it is implied he takes after his low-brow uncles (Daphne's brothers). For example, he kicks away classical music and jumps at the mention of a pub. Although David's true personality will remain a mystery, it is clear that his parents love him very much. Besides his uncles on his mother's side, he also has uncle on his father's side in the form of Frasier Crane. He is the grandson of Gertrude Moon and Harry Moon, and Martin Crane (on his father's side). David also has a step-grandmother Ronee Lawrence, Martin's wife. He is the younger cousin of Frederick Crane. David also has an Aunt Roz, even though they are not blood related.
