Lovi Poe is a Filipina actress, model, and recording artist.
She is the daughter of Rowena Moran, an actress, and Fernando Poe, Jr. (born Ronald Allan Kelley Poe), known as FPJ, an actor, film director, producer, screenwriter, and politician. She is a niece of actors Andy Poe (Fernando Kelley Poe, Jr.) and Conrad Poe (Conrad Castro Poe). At the time of her birth, her father was married to actress Susan Roces. Her father publicly stated that Lovie was his daughter in 2004. Her legal half-sister is politician, businessperson, educator, and philanthropist Grace Poe, who was adopted by her father and Susan.
Lovi is married to English executive producer Monty Montgomery Blencowe.
Lovi’s paternal grandfather was Fernando Poe Sr. (born Allan Fernando Reyes Poe, the son of Lorenzo Pou and Marta Reyes). Fernando was born on San Carlos, Pangasinan, Philippine Islands, and was an actor and film director, during the early era of Filipino cinema. Lorenzo was a Catalan immigrant from Majorca, Spain. Marta was a Filipina from Pangasinan.
Lovi’s paternal grandmother was Bessie Gatbonton Kelley (the daughter of Auther Edmon Kelley and Marta Genoveva Gatbonton y Maglatang). Auther was an American, of English, French, German, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh descent. Auther’s patrilineal ancestry can be traced back to his sixth great-grandfather, James O’Kelley, who was born in Clare, County Clare, Ireland. Lovi’s great-grandmother Marta was a Filipina from Candaba, Pampanga.
