Has Owen Wilson Really Never Met His Third Child?

Owen Wilson's dating history with the mothers of his children can best be described as complicated. The "Wedding Crashers" star had his first son, Robert, with his ex-girlfriend Jade Duell. His second son, Finn, was with fitness trainer Caroline Lindqvist, who had never officially been his girlfriend, but had casually dated the actor since 2003, per Bustle.

The situation between Wilson and Lindqvist had added drama because she was still married when she discovered she was pregnant with Wilson's child. When Lindqvist was still pregnant with Finn, she announced that while she and Wilson planned to co-parent, there were no plans for the duo to romantically reconnect. "Owen is very involved with the pregnancy," a source told Us Weekly in 2013 (via the Daily Mail). "He isn't in a relationship with Caroline, nor do they plan to be in one, but he is very supportive of everything," the insider added.

In August, the "Loki" actor did a feature story with Esquire, where he opened up about fatherhood and the marvels of raising his two boys. Wilson told an anecdote about Finn jokingly saying, "Thank you ... for nothing," and how it struck him. "It's funny how we get cast in these roles, because it seems like just yesterday I was the one muttering 'for nothing,' and now I'm the person in this role," Wilson told the outlet. While discussing parenthood, Wilson was effusive about his boys, but did not mention his third child. Keep reading to find out if the actor has a relationship with his daughter.

Owen Wilson did not want custody or visitation

For five years, Owen Wilson casually dated Varunie Vongsvirates, who gave birth to their daughter Lyla, but their relationship was fraught with friction. The "Wonder" actor requested a paternity test when Vongsvirates revealed she was pregnant, and he decided to not be part of the child's life. "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," a source revealed to Us Weekly in November 2018, shortly after Lyla's birth.

A year later, Wilson had still not spent any time with his daughter. "Owen has never met Lyla. Never," Vongsvirates told the Daily Mail in November 2019. "He helps financially but it's never been about that," she added. Lyla's mother said that Wilson was "missing out" by not seeing his daughter, who apparently bears his resemblance. "She looks just like you," Vongsvirates said. Wilson's ex thought it was ironic that the actor continued getting "father roles" in Hollywood while "he's never met his own daughter."

To celebrate Lyla turning 3 years old, Vongsvirates uploaded a photo of the toddler to Instagram on October 9, 2021. "Happy 3rd birthday to my wild child! I love you so much!!!!" she wrote in the caption. Many wondered if Wilson had eventually formed a relationship with his daughter. "He has never met her unfortunately," Vongsvirates confirmed to the Daily Mail on October 11. The outlet contacted her after she uploaded the birthday snap.
