Varunie Vongsvirates is claiming that her 3-year-old daughter Lyla has never met her famous dad, actor Owen Wilson. Varunie and Owen dated several years ago but later broke up. He denied that the child was his until recently but he has not done anything else.

The story started several years ago obviously but we have seen Varunie sharing sporadically some snaps of the beautiful baby girl. A couple of days ago she shared a sweet photograph of Lyla looking directly at the camera while she is wearing a big hat. The special snap was to commemorate her third birthday. The resemblance to the actor is uncanny so it is unthinkable that her dad is not Owen himself.


“Happy 3rd birthday to my wild child! I love you so much!!!!” Vongsvirate captioned. She has 25k followers on social media and in her comment section, we see how everyone sends sweet wishes to both of them. However, two days after the proud mom spoke to the Daily Mail and revealed what she has been saying all these years. “He has never met her, unfortunately,” Vongsvirates told the Daily Mail.

Back in 2019 she also declared to the Daily Mail that she has begged Owen Wilson to be involved in Lyla's life but he has not accepted this and has never met her. “He helps financially but it’s never been about that,” she said at the time, adding, “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 has played father Nate Pullman in the 2017 movie Wonder. He will next co-star with Jennifer Lopez in Marry Me which comes out in February 2022.

Sadly, back in 2017, Owen Wilson spoke with Ellen DeGeneres about parenthood but he did not mention Lyla. “It’s unbelievable. I mean, anything Ford says is just, like, the funniest thing ever, and I can make a 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,” he added. He shares 10-year old Robert Ford and 7-year old Finn with Jade Duell and Caroline Lindqvist respectively.

Varunie gave birth back in October 2018 but Wilson denied the baby was his. It was until 2020 when he did a paternity test and confirmed it. After her birth, the pair went to court where Owen reportedly "checked the no visitation box" and stated that he didn't want "any custody" of the girl, according to a source who previously spoke with Us Weekly.
