The tall (1.83m) hunk of a man, Lazaro Alonso, was born to Afro-Cuban parents on the 25th of March 1974 in Washington, D.C. As a result of his Afro-Cuban descent, Laz is bilingual, being proficient in both English and Spanish.Laz Alonso lost his dad at an early age and was practically raised by his mom alone (this explains his sentimental attachment to single moms). Some sources reported that the couple stayed in a relationship for five years but no factual information has been revealed. He can also be seen playing opposite Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba in their new series LA'S FINEST.
