Hulu’s new series Utopia Falls, which premieres on February 14, is not just another sci-fi drama. The young-adult series takes hip-hop to the dystopian future with a message of eco-awareness and youth activism. Robyn Alomar, who plays Aliyah, will star in the first leading role of her career. And she’s certainly someone you need to keep an eye on. Our Robyn Alomar wiki is the perfect primer on this starlet who is set to become the next big thing to take over Hollywood.
Robyn Alomar’s Stepfather Is MLB Pro Robbie Alomar
Robyn Alomar was born on July 3, 1996 and is from Toronto, Canada. Her mother, Kim Perks, and her grandparents, Kilby and Marie Perks, are from Toronto.
Robyn is Kim’s daughter from a previous relationship. Kim later remarried Roberto “Robbie” Alomar, the former MLB pro who played for the Toronto Blue Jays.
Puerto Rican Robbie Alomar is the son of another MLB great, Sandy Alomar, and is regarded as one of the greatest second basemen in the league. In 1990, he had signed with the Blue Jays, and in 1991, he met Kim Perks, who was working as a SkyBox hostess at the SkyDome for Blue Jays games.
Their relationship didn’t last long the first time, and they parted ways. Robbie went on to marry Puerto Rican model Maripily Rivera in 2009, before they had a very bitter divorce in 2011.
Robbie and Kim reunited after their previous marriages had ended, and they married on December 12, 2012 in a grand ceremony at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto.
Robbie planned a special event at their wedding for the then-16-year-old Robyn who would take on his last name. Not only did they have a sweet father-daughter dance, but he also gave her a ring as a present.
