Aled was the first of the quadruplets to be born, arriving when Gemma and Chesney were suspended mid-air in a cable car in Llandudno in October 2019. He was named after Aled Ifans, one of the paramedics who aided Gemma when she was in labour. His name was also chosen as a reference to the singer Aled Jones who performed the song "Walking in the Air", alluding to the circumstances of Aled's birth.
In December 2019, the quads were discharged from hospital. Soon afterwards, they were used in a marketing campaign with their parents for the supermarket Freshco, becoming known as the "Freshco Four". However, their contract was terminated when Chesney protested the campaign's heavy manipulation.
In February 2020, Aled was diagnosed with profound deafness.
Aled was born onscreen in October 2019 but was not played by an actor until the following December due to his premature birth. Since then, he has been played by twins Charlotte & James Holt and triplets Arthur, Lily & Lucy Taylor, all of whom also play the role of the character's quadruplet siblings Bryn, Carys and Llio. Aled has also been played by twins Harry & Harvey Thompson since February 2020 who, unlike the other actors, are only appearing in the one role.
