Actor Matthew Le Nevez, and his partner Michelle Smith, welcomed their first child last month and have named their son Levi.

Matthew is a NIDA graduate who has appeared in several films and television series. He won an AFI Award for the mini-series Marking Time, and a Logie for the television movie The Society Murders. He has appeared in sci-fi show Farscape, and fantasy series The Seeker. Matthew became a fan favourite after joining the cast of hit drama series Offspring in 2011 as Dr Patrick Reid, and there was an outpouring of grief when Patrick was killed off last year. Despite leaving Offspring to pursue acting in the United States, Matthew will be joining the cast of Australian drama series Love Child, and has made appearances on Offspring in imagination sequences, with more appearances tipped for the future.

Michelle is an American who works in hospital equipment supply; she and Matthew live together in Los Angeles.
