Owen Wilson REFUSES to meet daughter Lyla as she turns 3, mom shares adorable pics
Owen Wilson's baby mama, Varunie Vongsvirates, shared a recent photo of little Lyla Aranya Wilson to mark her third birthday
The third and youngest child of Owen Wilson just turned three, but the Hollywood megastar has reportedly never met her.
The 52-year-old actor's baby mama, Varunie Vongsvirates, shared a recent photo of little Lyla Aranya Wilson to mark her birthday and the tot's resemblance to her father is rather uncanny. Looking adorable in the Sunday, October 10, Lyla seemed to me dead ringer for Wilson. The child flaunted her straw hat and white sweater as she posed for the camera.
"Happy 3rd birthday to my wild child! I love you so much!!!!" Vongsvirates wrote in the caption of the image posted to her Instagram.
While not much is known of the 37-year-old doting mother, she is known to often share photos of her baby girl on social media. None of them feature Lyla's biological father. Wilson and Vongsvirates are said to have dated casually for about five years before going their separate ways.
Sources have claimed Wilson "knew all along that Varunie was pregnant" and was "told when Varunie was four weeks" along, but apparently wanted no part of it. Nonetheless, Lyla was born in October 2018. Insiders told Us Weekly about a Month later that Wilson "refuses to meet his daughter. 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."
After long speculation about whether Lyla was indeed Wilson's child, a paternity test taken before her birth proved he was her biological father. However, Vongsvirates would give birth without Wilson by her side. One source told Us Weekly that the 'Wedding Crashers' star did not contact the new mom "at all" after Lyla was born. "Of course, if a paternity test establishes that he is the father of another child, he will fulfill all of his obligations to support his child," the insider noted at the time.
In 2019, Vongsvirates decided to open up about her journey of raising Lyla by herself. Speaking to the Daily Mail, she said her ex-boyfriend was "not involved at all" in parenting their daughter. "He helps financially but it's never been about that," she told the newspaper. "You should see your daughter, she's incredible, you're really missing out. She looks just like you," she continued, addressing Wilson. "Lyla needs a father. 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."
Wilson played the role of father Nate Pullman in the 2017 blockbuster 'Wonder.' He is now set to co-star with Jennifer Lopez in 'Marry Me', which is slated to release in February 2022.
It's worth noting that Wilson has two other children from two different women — 10-year-old son Robert with ex-girlfriend Jade Duell, and 6-year-old son Finn with fitness trainer Caroline Lindqvist. In August this year, Owen spoke publicly about being a dad to his sons and how he liked to tell them stories. However, he did not mention a third child.
