Aussie star Alex O’Loughlin was glowing with fatherly pride when he told TV WEEK of the birth of his baby son, Lion Kahano, last week.
“He’s a little cub right now, but one day he’ll grow up to be a lion,” the Hawaii Five-0 star said of the newborn, who was welcomed into the world on October 25.
When asked about the choice of name, the actor and father to Saxon, 15 – his son from a previous relationship, couldn’t stop a cheeky grin spreading across his face. “I don’t really set the sights high for my kids with names like Saxon and Lion, right,” he laughs.
The 36-year-old actor, who has been dating model Malia Jones, has nothing but praise for the new mum. “She’s a supportive partner and a terrific woman living with three boys not including me, so it’s like a man factory at my house!”
