Owen Wilson still believes his daughter is not his blood. He is fond of his boys and is seen gushing over them during interviews.
Every child deserves the attention and love of their parents. However, some parents often forget what they are supposed to do as parents. Owen Wilson, the famous Hollywood star, has denied his daughter the opportunity to be a part of his life. But, that is not the case with all his children. The actor, who also has two other sons speaks fondly of them and also takes the effort to spend quality time with them.
According to Sound Health and Lasting Wealth, Wilson spent a nice afternoon with his boys, six-year-old Finn and nine-year-old Robert. The father and sons headed to one of the beaches in California to enjoy the sunshine after days of isolation due to the pandemic.
The actor enjoys a close bond with his boys and is often heard speaking about their relationship. "It's unbelievable. I mean, anything Ford (he calls Robert by his middle name) says is just, like, the funniest thing ever, and I can make and joke and it's, like, crickets. It's like nothing from those guys... I'm already sort of seeing how they're gonna be as teenagers, where they're gonna be sort of be ganging up on me," said the 51-year-old during an episode of The Ellen Degeneres Show, according to ET.
Meanwhile, there is no sign of the actor trying to reconnect with his daughter, Lyla Aranya Wilson born on 9 October 2018. Though her mother, Varunie Vongsvirates, the actor's on and off girlfriend reached out to him, he refused to engage in any personal relationship with his baby girl. Speaking to Daily Mail, the distraught mother stated that the news of even her news of the pregnancy was not well received by the actor. Wilson was disappointed and even changed his 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 Daily Mail.
The actor stated that he had doubts about whether the baby was his. On his daughter's birth, a paternity test was conducted and Wilson was found to be the father. However, he still refused to see his own child and even stated that he did not want any visitation rights. Instead, he decided to fulfill his obligation in terms of child support. "If a paternity test establishes that [Wilson] is the father of another child, he will fulfill all of his obligations to support his child," said the source, according to People.
The actor pays $25,000 per month for his child's care. According to Daily Mail, in addition to that, he also a one-off $70,000 to cover the charges relating to a night nurse, labor coach, and her legal fees for the paternity petition filed in May 2018.
However, that is not what their daughter needs, says Vongsvirates. She stated that more than the money, she needed him to be there for their daughter as a loving father.
"Owen has never met Lyla. Never. 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," said the mother.
Meanwhile, sources close to the actor stated that he was "excited" about the new addition. But they stated that the actor was still not convinced about his fatherhood, according to People. They also added that the actor would continue child support due to the positive paternity test results.
With the actor portraying his love for the boys in public and enjoying quality time with them, Vongsvirates wishes their daughter too had that chance. The woman stated that she had only one request to the actor and that was to see his daughter at least once. "You should see your daughter, she's incredible, you're really missing out. She looks just like you," said Vongsvirates, according to Daily Mail. Additionally, she wants her daughter to enjoy the love and affection of both her parents.
