Lyla Wilson, Owen Wilson’s daughter, resembles him in a rare photograph published on her third birthday by her mother Varunie Vongsvirates. The Marley & Me star, according to Vongsvirates, has never met this daughter. Lyla, 3, is a spitting image of her father with lovely blonde hair and blue eyes in a snapshot released by Vongsvirates on Instagram, according to The Sun. She said in the photo’s caption, “Happy 3rd birthday to my rambunctious toddler! I adore you to the moon and back!!!!” In a Daily Mail report from 2019, Vongsvirates stated that Wilson had never met Lyla when she was a year old and that she had to ask him to get engaged in her life.
In an exclusive interview, she stated, “Lyla is someone Owen has never met. Never. He contributes financially, but it’s never been the focus.” She said, “Talking about his character Nate Pullman in the film Wonder,” “Lyla is in desperate need of a father. It’s interesting that [Owen] keeps getting parent parts; in his current film, he plays a father, yet he’s never met his own daughter.” Varunie and Owen were together for five years before parting ways. In 2018, he got a paternity test, which revealed that he is Lyla’s biological father.
In 2018, a source told US Weekly exclusively that he “refuses to meet his daughter.” They continued, “In June, he even checked the no visitation box in court… He does not wish to see her and has no desire to have custody of her.” While speaking with the Daily Mail, Vongsvirates left a message for Wilson “You should go visit your kid; she’s amazing, and you’re missing out. She bears a striking resemblance to you.” Owen has two more boys with his ex-partners in addition to Layla. With his ex-girlfriend Jade Duell, with whom he purportedly got split in 2011, the actor has a 10-year-old son named Robert. According to the Daily Mail, he and his fitness trainer Caroline Lindqvist have a six-year-old son named Finn.
When it comes to his children, Owen always seems to forget about Lyla. While promoting Cars 3 on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he discussed parenting his two sons. “, he explained “It’s incredible. I mean, whatever Ford (Robert) says is the funniest thing ever, and I can crack a joke and it’s like crickets. It’s as if they don’t know what they’re doing.” “I’m already seeing how they’re going to be as adolescents, where they’re going to be ganging up on me,” he continued. He joked with his sons about witnessing “the tallest tree in the world” in Sequoia National Park, where Robert claimed he had seen bigger ones.
In a 2021 interview with Esquire, he highlighted his “single-dad schedule,” but omitted to mention his daughter, Lyla. He was seen clipping Finn’s nails before heading to the sports complex for the interview with Robert. Vongsvirates gave birth to baby Lyla in 2018 and has been raising her on her own, with the exception of some financial assistance from Wilson.
