Actor Alex O’Loughlin, and his partner Malia Jones, welcomed their son about three weeks ago, and recently announced his name as Lion. Although Lion is their first child together, both parents have children from previous relationships – Alex has a teenage son named Saxon, and Malia has a son named Spike, aged 3. Spike is the son of Australian surfer Luke Stedman.
A NIDA graduate, Alex has appeared in several Australian drama series, including White Collar Blue, and in a few Australian films. He moved to Hollywood to futher his career, and joined the cast of police drama The Shield in 2007. He left when he was offered the lead role in the vampire-detective TV series, Moonlight, and then later starred in short-lived hospital drama, Three Rivers. Since 2010 he has played the lead role in successful remake Hawaii Five-0; he’s also played opposite Jennifer Lopez in a romantic comedy, and tested for James Bond.
Malia is a surfer and swimsuit model who designs swimwear for Mambo sportswear. She and Alex met through a mutual friend in Honolulu, where Hawaii Five-0 is filmed.
