All good things must come to an end, and for Matthew Fox island life is one of them. As he anticipates his upcoming move from Hawaii to Oregon, Matthew says that “it’s been a great experience” but he, wife Margherita and children Kyle Allison, 12, and Byron, 7 ½, “are really looking forward to moving on.” Before they do, Matthew was happy to look back during a recent appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman.

“For us, the family, leaving Los Angeles, and I’ve got two young children…Them having a chance to spend all that time in Hawaii, and spend that much time in the water, and learning how to surf…All that’s been great…Especially for the little guy, it’s been a big deal. We moved over there when he was 2 or 3.”

In Oregon the kids will get to know some of the “wide open spaces” Matthew, 42, enjoyed growing up in Wyoming, where his father still owns a ranch. It’s a place Kyle and Byron enjoy visiting. “They’ve spent quite a bit of time [there], and both of them are really into getting on a horse,” he reveals. “Particularly [Kyle]; She’s totally in love with it.” When host David Letterman pointed out how lucky Matthew’s children are to be exposed to such diverse surroundings, he agreed. “We’ve been very fortunate,” he said.

Sam & Freya's Mum on

Just curious, but does anyone know how his daughter’s name is pronounced?, e.g. Ky-ill or Ky-lee, but just a different spelling of Kylie? Nice that his kids are having a more ‘normal’ outdoors lifestyle upbringing, away from LA! Hope they enjoy their life in Oregon. I always remember and htink of him as big brother on Party of Five as I never got into watching Lost. Sounds a lot of fun for his kids, horse rides etc, good for them enjoying Hawaii & then Oregon area. I’m from NZ & did the usual tourist spots in US such as New York (which was great!), Boston, & up to Vancouver which was beautiful (always wanted to make it to Canada, albeit briefly & not the Rockies, another big city, but one day maybe?!) but did make it to Seattle (liked Seattle, seemed a relaxed, friendly place) before flying home via LA – which I didn’t like (no offence to any LA residents/fans!), and thought Seattle was reasonably near the state of Oregon, is that right?

So agree! I grew up in Wyo as well and it was such an amazing place to grow up in! 🙂
