Judith "Judy" Grimes is a character first encountered in Issue 39 of The Walking Dead and is the newborn daughter of Lori Grimes, but it is still uncertain if she was the daughter of Rick Grimes or Shane and the full or half sister of Carl.
Judith was the second child born to Rick and Lori Grimes and the first infant depicted as having been born after the zombie apocalypse. As the only person so far to have no memories of a world without the horrors of the zombie apocalypse, her parents expressed hopes that she would not live in constant fear as they do and accept the post zombie world as the way things were without referencing the way things used to be.
It was a point of contention within the comics as to who is Judith's biological father. Lori had a very brief sexual liaison with Shane, Rick's best friend, on their way to Atlanta. This put Shane into the right time frame for Judith's conception, although Rick was reunited with Lori not long after, so it was still entirely possible that he was indeed Judith's biological father. Rick had since forgiven Lori for her affair with Shane, but forbidded mention that he might've not been Judith's biological father. As far as he was concerned, he loved his daughter and the circumstances of her conception were completely irrelevant.

As the Grimes family fled the Prison, Judith's life came to an abrupt and tragic end as she and her mother were killed in the final stages of the Woodbury Army's assault on The Prison. She was not wounded by the gunshot, but it was assumed that she died instantly after Lori fell onto her. Judith was mentioned several times by Carl and Rick after her and Lori's death. During a long talk with Douglas Monroe, Rick acknowledged Lori's affair with Shane, and affirmed his doubt about being Judith's biological father.
