Owen Wilson refuses to meet newborn daughter with ex GF and isn't interested in custody
Reports claim that Owen Wilson does not want to meet or have custody of his newborn daughter that he shares with ex Varunie Vongsvirates
Despite being a dedicated father two sons, Owen Wilson has refused to meet his newborn daughter with ex Varunie Vongsvirates.
Us Weekly reports that Wilson's former girlfriend delivered the baby in October but the actor does not want to be involved in the child's life. Sources told the publication, “He even checked the 'no visitation' box in court in June … He does not want to visit [and does not] want any custody of her.” His daughter, named Lyla, is apparently a spitting image of her father, according to the same source. She has blonde hair and blue eyes and fair skin.

The source also added that Owen did not contact Varunie at all despite the fact that they were together for five years. He was however aware of the pregnancy from the time Varunie was 4-week pregnant. Wilson took a paternity test in June after Vongsvirates claimed she was pregnant. The results confirmed that he was the father. The former couple dated on and off for 5 years.
Owen's distance from his newborn daughter comes as a surprise considering that the actor is a devoted father to his two sons, Robert, seven, and four-year-old Finn, both from previous relationships. He shares Robert with his ex-girlfriend Jade Duell and shares Finne with Caroline Lindqvist.
The Sun reports that Wilson has gone on record to fondly talk about his children. In an interview last year he was quoted saying, “I'm already sort of seeing how they're going to be as teenagers, where they're going to be sort of be ganging up on me.”
His love for his sons is evident as he shared a sweet anecdote when he made an appearance on the 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' in June 2017. He said, “I can make a joke and it’s, like, crickets,” he explained, noting that his sons don’t find him funny. “It’s, like, nothing from those guys.”
Vongsvirate took to Instagram last month to share a photo of her baby, a few days after giving birth. The picture was of the infant wrapped in a light pink blanket, the caption read "My sweet little princess." On Wednesday, October 31, the new mom posted another picture of the child with a red heart as a caption.
There has been no official comment from Wilson yet, though his representative did say, "This is a private matter and it's not appropriate to comment further."
