#AlexOLoughlin chats to TV WEEK about fatherhood (2012)

Lion Pride

TV Week

20 November 2012

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!”

Being Daddy #AlexOLoughlin – Transcript

Watching the latest video from Watch Magazine, you can once again see how much being a father means to Alex. When he still had only one kid (Saxon), he said that they were very close, and that his whole world revolved around the little bloke.

And now there are three of them; Saxon a young adult (20 yrs next month), living far away back in Australia, and living with him and Malia in Hawaii, both stepson Spike (8 yrs) and their youngest son Lion (4 yrs).

A Father’s Day Greeting from Alex O’Loughlin:

Father’s Day, my children have to be nice to me, at least in the morning – You know, when they remember too. So, you know, waking up on that day, and just having my family kind of jump on me, it’s …. it’s  …. I love it, you know what I mean.

Being a husband and a dad are the two most important things in my life. You know, to ….. and nothing else matters, you know, beyond that. I don’t enjoy anything else more than I enjoy those two things. So, it’s a great day.

I get to go …. The thing I like the most about Father’s Day, I get to go, “Ah, it’s Father’s day, you have to get me a thing. Open it. And give it to me”. So I get to kind of make unreasonable demands, that I don’t get to do 364 days.

Is there anything that I would like for Father’s day?  Yes, a vacation would be amazing. By myself. I know I just said I love my family. And I DO.  But I l’d love to be by myself  ….  on a mountain. Like in these photos. This is like a dream sequence  for me.
