    He was raised together by his both parents until he was about 3 years old. After that, Caan grew up mostly under the care of his mother Ingrid as his parents separated on a sour note. Talking about his ethnicity, he is Jewish on his dad’s side and Puerto Rican on his mom’s. He is American by nationality.

    His Education And Height

    Alexander attended the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he earned his degree in Theatre Arts. Further for height, the celebrity son is 5 feet and 8 inches tall.

    Alexander’s Father, James Had Multiple Failed Marriage

    As earlier mentioned, Alexander’s mom Ingrid was his dad’s third wife. They had the most controversial marriage which lasted for five years from 1990 to 1995.

    Before Ingrid, the Eraser actor had two failed marriages, first with Dee Jay Mathis (1960 to 1966) and second with Sheila Marie Ryan (1976-1977). His last wife was Linda Stokes with whom James had the longest matrimonial relationship and also the most tumultuous one.

    Caan Has Four Half-Siblings

    Alexander is the only child of his parents together. But from his father’s other marriages, he has four siblings. His elder sister Tara A. Caan was born from his dad’s first nuptial on November 5, 1964. She is now happily married and is a mother of three.

    Further, he has an older half-brother Scott Caan, the son of James with his second wife. Born on August 23, 1976, Scott now is an accomplished Hollywood actor famously known for his role as Danny Williams in the series Hawaii Five-0.

    Similarly, his two brothers James Arthur Caan Jr. and Jacob Nicholas Caan as his dad’s sons from his fourth wife Linda.

    Alexander And His Brother Scott Caan’s Picture Is Highly Mistaken

    Most of the online tabloids have presented Hawaii Five-0 actor Scott as his little half-brother Alexander. Since both siblings resemble so much in facial structures, it arose confusion between them.

    But let us make you clear that the person which many media portals have considered Alexander is none other than his big bro Scott.
