Owen Wilson may play a superhero dad in Paramount+’s Secret Headquarters, but the reality is… a little different? Yes, Owen Wilson has children — three, to be exact, and all with different women. But while he stays close with his two sons, he’s never met his daughter. Meet Owen Wilson’s three children and what we know about their relationships.
Robert Ford Wilson
Ford is Owen’s firstborn child. His mother is Jade Duell, who dated Owen Wilson from 2009 to 2011. Ford was born on Valentine’s Day of 2011 in Maui after his momma was in labor for 18 hours.
Jade is a police officer who has worked for the Department of Homeland Security, the US Supreme Court, and as a US Federal Air Marshall. She keeps her social media on a private setting, and we don’t know much about her. However, rumor has it that Owen left her shortly after she gave birth to Ford. Ford was only 5 months old at the time.
“Owen wanted the freedom to do what he wanted with his friends, both male and female, while remaining a family unit with Jade and the baby,” said an insider to National Enquirer. He allegedly left her instead of cheating on her.
Owen stays close to Ford, reportedly living nearby to him and Jade. Living the single-dad life, he makes sure that he sees his sons, his sons and their mothers know each other, and everyone gets along.
Finn Lindqvist Wilson
Finn was born on January 30, 2014. His mother is personal trainer Caroline Lindqvist.
Caroline and Owen were reportedly in an on-again-off-again relationship since 2003 and had split up before she found out she was pregnant. Owen had allegedly recently split from Kate Hudson prior to hooking up with Caroline again, and Caroline was separated but not yet divorced from her now ex-husband, Ritu Chopra.
According to a source at Star Magazine, Owen’s refusal to stay in a relationship with Caroline despite her pregnancy was hard on her. “Caroline is six months pregnant with Owen’s child,” said the source. “She was shocked to learn that she was pregnant but decided to keep the baby. Owen plans on being fully involved and will financially care for the child, but has no intention of settling down with Caroline, which is tearing her up.”
The two decided to have the baby and raise him together while not staying in a committed relationship. US Weekly cited a source who claimed that “Owen plans to be involved with the baby and help raise him. Finn and Caroline, like Ford and Jade, live close to Owen Wilson.
Owen has detailed fatherhood and his interactions with Ford and Finn on numerous occasions. He’s talked about vacationing with them, trimming their fingernails, reading bedtime stories, and how the boys love each other. But as for Owen’s daughter, that’s a different story…
Lyla Aranya Wilson
Lyla was born on October 9, 2018. Her mother is Varunie Vongsvirates.
Varunie and Owen dated casually for five years. Five months before Lyla was born, Varunie filed a paternity petition. Radar Online quotes Varunie as “excited” and “gushing” about Owen as the father. The publication quotes her as saying, “He will be a great dad, because he’s an incredible dad with his other two children.”
Owen Wilson Changed His Phone Number When Told He Had a Daughter Coming
But Owen, in disbelief at the news, demanded a DNA test. When the test proved that he was actually the father, he agreed to pay child support — but checked off the “none” box in the visitation rights section of the paperwork.
Radar Online quotes a source as saying that Owen was upset. “When Varunie told Owen she was pregnant, he was not happy about it, and that was the last time they ever spoke… He changed his phone number. He’s never met his daughter and then he gave no heads up that he was changing his number.”
Varunie’s Instagram account is flooded with photos of their adorable daughter, Lyla. Here she is about a year ago. She will be four years old this week:
While Owen sends Lyla’s mother $25,000 a month in child support (as well as a one-time payment of $70,000 before Lyla was born), he still to this day has never met Lyla. This apparently is extremely hard on Varunie, who has opened up about her grief.
“Lyla needs a father,” she added. “It’s ironic how [Owen] keeps getting these father roles, he’s playing a father in his new movie, and he’s never met his own daughter.”
