Hollywood hunk Karl Urban has brought his new girlfriend, American starlet Katee Sackhoff, home to meet his family and friends, Summer Diary can report.
The couple made waves in Portland, Oregon, in November when she took him home to meet her parents. Now the 42-year-old Kiwi actor has introduced his new girlfriend to his children and a Kiwi summer.
The lovebirds have been taking romantic strolls along Pakiri Beach and fishing for snapper on the Hauraki Gulf.
Sackhoff, 34, who co-starred alongside Urban in the 2013 blockbuster Riddick, has met Karl's two sons, Hunter, 14, and Indiana, 9, and the family group have been enjoying the hot summer days.

Urban was approached for comment about his new relationship, but did not respond.
However, a close source said the father of two, who split last year from his Kiwi wife of 10 years, Natalie Wihongi, has found love again with Katee.
Seven months ago, Urban announced that he'd separated from the mother of his two young children.
Last month, the family's Herne Bay mansion sold for $6.65 million and Urban and his estranged wife netted a cool $1.4 million profit.
He bought a lavish pad in Westmere where he has been nesting with Katee.

The sci-fi actress, who is best known for her role as Starbuck on Battlestar Galactica, became close to Urban during filming on the Riddick set in Quebec, sources say. She has released a saucy 2015 lingerie calendar for charity with fellow actress Tricia Helfer, in which she bares nearly all. The month of February is a personal fave, Urban's pals wink.
Stephie as beach babe
She's on holiday with her folks at their Hawaiian beachfront mansion, but Stephie Key, the so-called rebellious daughter of John and Bronagh, has evidently found inspiration for her latest self-portrait - as Hawaiian tropic babe.
No stranger to stripping off for her art, Key the Younger, who is a student at the prestigious Paris College of Art, posted the self-portrait online this week.
Wearing blue tresses and a matching hula skirt, Stephie is posing with a pink ukulele. Her gold bikini top exposes tan lines; her dreamy gaze exposes a wistful faraway look.
It's decidedly less confronting, however, than the self-portrait posted to her Facebook page last month in which Key channels a young bride wearing a delicate white veil and lingerie.

Calling herself a "Paris-based girl power artist", Key goes by the nom de plume Cherry Lazar.
Stone the Crowes
As if Martin Crowe isn't going through enough, the former cricketer who's battling cancer must have been appalled by the amateur mistake made by 3News on Wednesday night. The network ran a piece about Crowe's brave health fight and talked about the devotional support of his wife Lorraine Downes - only they used footage instead of his former wife, Simone. Oh dear.
Beauty queen war
Best of luck to 24-year-old beauty therapist Rachel Millns, from Waikanae, who flew in to Miami, Florida, on Monday to represent New Zealand in the Miss Universe competition, alongside 90 global glamourpusses.
But before the big final on January 25 comes a string of preliminary competitions and activities including golf putting, cooking and zumba lessons.

Preseason training for the Warriors kicked off this week, and new recruit Ryan Hoffman, formerly from the Melbourne Storm, has been made to feel right at home with onetime Wigan teammate Sam Tomkins taking the clippers to his coiffure.
"Should Sam's hands be shaking?" Hoffman joked while posing staunchly in the barber's seat.
