"Hawaii Five-O"'s sexiest star Alex O'Loughlin is preparing to become a father for the second time. The TV star is expecting a child with his girlfriend, model and surfer Malia Jones. It will be the first child for the couple who have been dating for over a year. Both Alex and Malia have sons from previous relationships.
We're super excited for this cute couple and can't wait to hear when the baby is due. In the meantime let's learn some more about this awesome Aussie.
Alex has spent a lot of time on the small screen. The "Hawaii Five-O" babe previously starred on episodes of "Criminal Minds," "Moonlight," and "The Shield." In 2010 he tried his hand at the silver screen and played the role of Stan opposite Jennifer Lopez in, "The Back Up Plan." We thought he was adorable in that movie and we hope he makes his return to rom-com.
As a child Alex suffered from a variety of problems including asthma, obsessive compulsive disorder, and attention deficit disorder. His disorders made it difficult for him to handle school and he dropped out when he was 14. Later on he went to attend the National Institute of Dramatic Art and completed the program after three years.
Recovered in rehab
Earlier this year the Aussie hunk took some time off to enter rehab for his addiction to pain medication, something that occurred after he injured his shoulder. Alex quickly recovered and only missed filming one episode of his beloved TV show.
In 2007 a rumor rapidly on the Internet that Alex was the son of AC/DC frontman Bon Scott. Alex and his parents denied the allegation but his family continued to suffer from the rumors as his mother was labeled a groupie. "I'm the son of an Everyman," Alex said. "My father is a teacher. He teaches physics at a boys school in Sydney."
Now that Alex is making waves with "Hawaii Five-O" we can bet his career is going to take off in the next couple of years. What do you hope Alex will star in next?
