Meet Paul Hogan’s secret granddaughter: Sunrise viewers are left stunned as they discover the Crocodile Dundee star is related to a stunning Seven News reporter
He’s one of Australia’s most iconic actors, thanks to his starring role in Crocodile Dundee back in 1986.
But Sunrise viewers were left shocked on Thursday morning as it was revealed that Paul Hogan, 81, has a secret granddaughter, who is a reporter for Seven News Sydney.
During the broadcast, Paul was reunited with journalist Mylee Hogan, 29, via video link. She affectionately called him ‘Pa’ and explained what it was like to have such a well-known grandfather.

‘Hey, Pa! It’s been a while since I’ve seen you there!’ said Mylee, who is the daughter of Paul’s third son, Todd Hogan.
‘I don’t want to burst the bubble, but we get all the boring bits of Pa, don’t we?
‘To us he’s granddad – the guy that wears jeans and joggers – and we have to go out to dinner early, and we have to go to the places he knows so that he knows what’s on the menu before we get there… yeah!’

As Sunrise hosts David Koch and Sam Armytage burst into fits of laughter, she added: ‘I get that great version! No, but we do get some wonderful stories, and I get to hear those wonderful stories from him which is such a privilege.
‘We are so proud of everything that he has done. We miss you!’
The actor cheekily responded: ‘That’s my granddaughter, and she’s a lady! She’s not a little child. But I don’t have any great grandchildren!’
