This is the pic O'Loughlin shared of his little Lion, on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."
Meet Lion, the six-month-old son of “Hawaii Five-0” actor Alex O’Loughlin and his model-surfer girlfriend, Malia Jones.
Us Weekly published the first photo of Lion, which O’Loughlin shared, during a May 17 appearance of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Lion, born last Oct. 25, is the first child for the couple, though he has an 16-year-old son, Saxon, and she has a 4-year-old daughter, Molly, from previous relationships.
“He’s the best,” O’Loughlin boasted.
O’Loughlin portrays Steve McGarrett on the CBS series, which this week aired the final episode of season three.
The show earlier was picked up for syndication by TNT beginning in 2014 and earned a fourth season pick-up, with filming expected to resume in July. For the first time, “Five-0” will be in residency on the sound stages of the Hawaii Film Studio in the Diamond Head area, where the Jack Lord “Five-0” was a tenant during its entire 12-season run, between 1968 and 1980.
Facilities are being renovated to suit the needs of production.
