Malin Åkerman was born Malin Maria Åkerman on May 12, 1978, in Stockholm, Sweden. She is the daughter of Pia Sundström, a part-time model/aerobics instructor, and Magnus Åkerman, an insurance broker. Malin's family moved to Canada when she was 2 years old, and after her parents divorced four years later, Magnus returned to Sweden. Åkerman grew up in a Buddhist household in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, where they moved after Pia remarried. Malin has two half-sisters, Jennifer and Mikaela Åkerman, and she attended Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School. At the age of 16, Malin was in the audience of a model search competition at a St. Catharines shopping mall when one of Ford Models' "head honchos" approached Åkerman and told her, "You'd be perfect for our agency." She signed with Ford and later appeared in a Noxzema commercial. Malin moved to Toronto, where she studied at North Toronto Collegiate and Dante Alighieri School, and when she was 18, she decided that she wanted to become a child psychologist. While attending Toronto's York University, Åkerman was offered guest roles on TV. She discovered that she enjoyed acting, and she later dropped out of college to pursue an acting career. In 2001, Malin moved to Los Angeles.

Malin is dyslexic, and she told "Movieline" in 2010, "I get horrified when I have to do table reads with the whole cast, because there's a lot of stuttering coming from me, so I have to do a lot of prep. Whenever there's improv, I'm like, 'Great! No lines.'" Malin has permanent residency in Canada, is a Swedish citizen, and has been an American citizen since October 2018. She is fluent in Swedish and English, and she speaks Spanish and French as well.
