She had a brief affair with her fellow astronaut, Terrance Kelly in which she soon became pregnant with her daughter Lia, who developed superpowers based on light. Upon returning to Earth, Celeste immediately saw to turning her own daughter into a well-respected celebrity as The Flash, much to Lia's chagrin, and becoming the typical stage mother.
