After being abandoned, Vongsvirates even begged Wilson to be a part of his daughter's life, but in vain.
Owen Wilson is a dad to three kids, two sons, and a daughter. Wilson shares son Robert, 7, with ex-girlfriend, Jade Duell and son Finn, 4, with Caroline Lindqvist. He also shares a three-year-old daughter, Lyla, with Varunie Vongsvirates. Even though he's a part of his sons' lives, he's been missing out on watching his daughter grow up into a beautiful young woman, reveals Vongsvirates.
The baby, who is three years now, has never seen her dad as Wilson “refuses to meet his daughter,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly. “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.”
The source added that Wilson “has not contacted Varunie at all” after she gave birth nor during her pregnancy, despite the fact that they “dated for almost five years.” However, the source claims that Wilson “knew all along that Varunie was pregnant. Owen was told when Varunie was four weeks pregnant.”
Apparently, when Wilson found out that Vongsvirates was pregnant, he was so disappointed that he even went ahead and changed his phone number. “When Varunie told Owen she was pregnant, he was not happy about it, and that was the last time they ever spoke,” said a source, to Radar.
"He changed his phone number. He’s never met his daughter and then he gave no heads up that he was changing his number.”
However, he did take a paternity test, after he found out about the pregnancy. The paternity test revealed that “the alleged father is not excluded as the biological father of the fetus,” according to the documents obtained by Us Weekly.
“Owen has been a great father to his boys and has maintained a warm and close relationship with their mothers,” a source said at the time. “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.”
Heartbreakingly enough, Vongsvirates was excited about Wilson becoming a dad for the third time when she found out she was expecting a child with him. “He will be a great dad because he’s an incredible dad with his other two children,” she said at the time.
After being abandoned, Vongsvirates even begged Wilson to be a part of his daughter's life, because Vongsvirates knew how it felt to grow up without a parent, given how she was abandoned by a parent when she was a child herself, but it was all in vain. "Owen has never met Lyla. Never," Vongsvirates explained to Daily Mail. "He helps financially but it’s never been about that."
"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, she added." One can hope that Wilson does change his mind and go meet his beautiful baby girl who looks just like him!
