With appearances in primarily family-oriented films like Marley and I, Disney Cars cinema, Meet the parents, and other comedies like Wedding crashers and Zoolander, you would think that Owen Wilson would be more of a family man.
That is to say, to settle down and start a family. Kind of like what her boyfriend Ben Stiller had before he got divorced. Instead, Wilson has dated several women, famous and not, over the years and had children with his three separate baby moms.
Looks like he’s successfully co-parenting his kids, Ford, Finn and Lyla (whom he still hasn’t met), with their respective mothers, but it has to be a lot of hard work. Here’s what we know about Wilson’s relationship with her second child, Finn.
Her family life is a bit confusing
Wilson was unlucky with his love life. In 2011, Wilson had his first son Ford with his girlfriend, Jade Duell, but their relationship ended that same year. In 2014, he had his son Finn with Caroline Lindqvist, who is a personal trainer. She was also married at the time. Four years later, Wilson had her third child, Layla, with Varunie Vongsvirates, but in 2019 Wilson still hadn’t met her.
In the same year, Vongsvirates told the Daily mail that “Lyla needs a father”. She continued, “It’s ironic [Owen] continues to have those father roles, he plays a father in his new movie, and he’s never met his own daughter. “
It seems, however, that he cares a lot about the birth of his two boys. Regarding Finn’s birth, a source said People, “They don’t live together, but Owen is involved [in the pregnancy]. He comes to doctor’s appointments and makes sure Caroline is okay. “
His kids aren’t impressed that he’s Lightning McQueen
When Finn was three, in 2017, Wilson told Jimmy Kimmel that his two sons played sports. He said Ford loved karate, so he showed his two sons The Karate Kid, that they liked. Another reason he showed them the classic movie was to teach them respect and discipline.
Wilson also revealed that his boys aren’t impressed that he’s the voice of Lightning McQueen in Cars. In fact, Wilson suspects they think he’s delusional when he says he’s the Disney character. Wilson is upset that they weren’t more excited about it. “It’s like it’s my Fast Furious. Let’s put some energy in here, ”Wilson joked.
“I get some notoriety from their classmates,” Wilson told Ellen DeGeneres of her Cars appearances.
His kids must love Disney, anyway, because Finn was Mickey Mouse for Halloween that year. They showed a photo of him during another appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that same year. Ford was Indiana Jones, and when Finn saw how cool his older brother looked, he said he was now “the scary Mickey Mouse.”
“He wanted something more daring. Something more dangerous,” Wilson said, laughing at his son’s antics.
When Kimmel asked if he was a striking parent, Wilson said, “I’m pretty strict on manners and everything. But, yeah, you know, I’m not unreasonably strict. Guess I’m a little old fashioned. . You know, I told them both, “I don’t care what Uncle Woody and what Uncle Willy do, there’s no pot in this house. My house, my rules, ”he joked.
Wilson also revealed that he hopes his boys will be competitive in useful things, like getting good grades or being nicer to Wilson, but he believes it will be the same between them as it will between him and his brothers.
Wilson told Ellen DeGeneres that they called Finn “Me too” because he always wants to do what his older brother does. Whatever Ford says, Finn laughs hysterically, but when Wilson makes a joke, “there are crickets”, unless Ford is laughing.
Additionally, in 2017 Wilson said he was already sort of seeing how they would be as a teenager. He thinks they are going to gang up on him. They took a vacation to Sequoia National Park, where they have the tallest tree in the world, but Ford said he’s seen bigger ones. Wilson told him he hadn’t, and Ford’s response was, “If you say so.” The brothers also do these “dance-offs” where they don’t really dance, “it’s more parkour”.
Wilson certainly knows they don’t have the same childhood as him. His parents were even easier to live with than he was. He grew up without a seat belt, helmet or sunscreen.
Now Wilson’s boys are even older, and according to a source from Us weekly, the actor did a great job raising them with their mothers. “Owen has been a good father to his boys and has maintained a warm and close relationship with their mothers,” the source said.
Wilson had the boys most of the time during the lockdown, so he probably had his hands full. But it’s still weird that he doesn’t seem to have a relationship with his daughter. Maybe one day Finn and Ford will hang out with their sister and teach her parkour.
