Who is Java Kumala Holloway?

by Anne B. Robinson

Java Kumala Holloway is the young daughter of American actor, Josh Holloway and his non-showbiz wife, Yessica Kumala. She was born on April 9, 2009, in Oahu, Hawaii.

Despite Josh Holloway’s celebrity status, the family of four likes to keep their private lives away from the prying lenses of the paparazzi. Therefore, there isn’t much information out there on the whereabouts of Java Kumala Holloway.

Nonetheless, here’s what we know about her.

Let’s begin.

Who are the Parents of Java Kumala Holloway?

Josh Lee Holloway, Java’s father is an actor, model, and producer. He was born on July 20, 1969, in San Jose, California, USA.

His big break came when he landed a role in the sci-fi drama series Lost, where he portrayed the character of James “Sawyer” Ford. It was in the same role that he received the Best Actor on Television award, along with several other nominations.

Other projects include the TV series Colony and Yellowstone. He’s also appeared in movies such as Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and Paranoia among others.

Java’s mother, on the other hand, is a rather private person. Even her Instagram profile is private, so her followers are thoroughly screened.

On special occasions, Josh Holloway would greet his wife on social media without photos of her because she wouldn’t let him.

What we do know about Yessica Kumala, though, is that she was born in Jakarta, Indonesia on September 2, 1977, to a Chinese couple. Later, her family moved to America when she was still a child.

She and Holloway met in a Los Angeles club in 1999, and they dated for a few more years before tying the knot in 2004. They got married in Hawaii after wrapping up the pilot for Lost.

It was a private ceremony witnessed by their family and a few close friends. Five years later, they welcomed their first child, Java Kumala Holloway, into the world.

Not everyone is comfortable living in the spotlight. How Yessica Kumala managed to keep their private life on the down low despite being married to a Hollywood actor is quite impressive.

Honestly, it might be in the best interest of her children, Hunter Lee and Java Kumala Holloway, and we applaud her for it.

Java could be going to school, hanging out on weekends, and peacefully enjoying her life like any normal teenager—as she should, of course. She’s safe from the scrutiny of the public, and hopefully, it stays that way.
