The son died. It is only mentioned briefly, as I recall.
Meanwhile, Paula has been searching for her Smithy. Their son having died as an infant, she returns to work as a secretary.

The screenplay for "Random Harvest" is on the internet, and here's the quote where Paula tells an amnesiac Charles that "her" son had died -- the only mention in the movie:

Charles (after telling Paula that he was going to marry Kitty): I hope you won't take it into your head to follow my example, Miss Hanson. I don't know what I should do without you.
Paula: I have been married, Mr. Rainier. Remember, I told you when I took the position.
Charles; Yes, to be sure. It slipped my memory. You had a child, I believe.
Paula: Yes. A little boy. He died.
Charles: Yes. I remember. I'm sorry.
