Anastasia "Ana" Hamilton is a fictional character on The Young and the Restless, currently played by Loren Lott since 2018.

The character was previously played by Jamia Simone Nash from 2008-2012.


Ana Hamilton is the biological daughter of R&B superstar Jett Slade and Yolanda Hamilton. She was raised by her adoptive aunt, Tyra Hamilton.

Through her mother, Ana has an older brother named Devon Hamilton born on February 7, 1988.

When Tyra Hamilton was a child, her older sister, Yolanda Hamilton, became a crack addict. When Tyra was six, Yolanda gave birth to a baby boy named Devon Hamilton, who was raised by his grandmother. When Tyra was 15 years old, Yolanda had a second child, a little girl named Anastasia "Ana" Hamilton. Tyra took little Ana intending to raise her as her own.

After the death of his grandmother, Devon was adopted by the wealthy Winters family: Neil Winters, Drucilla Winters and Lily Winters. On his 21st birthday, Tyra and 12-year-old Ana came to town. Neil was suspicious of Tyra, but wanted Devon to get to know his real family.

Ana showed off a talent for singing and Katherine Chancellor thought of sending her to a music school in New Hampshire. Tyra feared that it would come out that Ana wasn't her daughter, but after some persuading by Tyra's friends, Tyra and Ana finally went to New Hampshire. However, they returned a few months later, as New Hampshire didn't really work out.

After being spotted on a missing persons report from Yolanda, Ana was taken into foster care. Neil and his girlfriend, Karen Taylor, got married so they could be foster parents to Ana. Tyra was crushed because she could hardly see her anymore. Karen became so attached to Ana that she wanted to adopt her, much to Tyra's horror. Tyra took Ana and attempted to flee Genoa City, but Neil found them after being tipped off by Ana on the phone. Neil covered for Tyra so she wouldn't get in trouble.

At Ana's custody hearing, Neil turned against Karen and told the judge that Tyra should have custody of Ana because she had raised her so well. Karen dumped him and Ana is now in Tyra's custody. Not too long after, it was revealed that Tyra was adopted and that she really wasn't a Hamilton.

After an affair with Devon, Tyra and Ana left town.

Ana returned in 2018 at the request of Neil and Nate Hastings to keep an eye on Devon after his wife, Hilary Hamilton, was tragically killed in a car accident. Elated to have his sister back in town, he offers her to be his assistant at Hamilton-Winters as well as showing her the ropes of music producing to which she accepts.
