Owen Wilson has been told that his four-year-old daughter ‘needs a father in her life’. 

The Hollywood star, 54, is best known for hit films like Wedding CrashersZoolander, Marley & Me.

The Cars actor has also played a number of fatherly roles in movies.

He has two sons of his own Robert, 11, and Finn, 8, who he shares with Jade Duell and Caroline Lindqvist.

However, many of Wilson’s fans had no idea that he actually has a daughter he’s never met.

And now, he’s been told that she ‘needs’ him in her life.

Wilson dated Varunie Vongsvirates for five years before they split.

Vongsvirates had Wilson’s third child and first daughter, Lyla, who is now four years old.

She explains to the Daily Mail that her ex-partner is ‘not involved at all’ with his daughter and has ‘never’ even met her.

She tells the paper that she has pleaded with the actor to get involved in Lyla’s life, but he will only help financially.

Vongsvirates says: “Lyla needs a father. It’s ironic how [Wilson] keeps getting these father roles, he’s playing a father in his new movie, and he’s never met his own daughter.”

According to Radar, their relationship didn’t end well and Wilson reportedly changed his phone number after learning that she was pregnant.

“When Varunie told Owen she was pregnant, he was not happy about it, and that was the last time they ever spoke,” a source tells the Daily Mail.

A paternity test confirmed that the Night at the Museum star was Lyla’s father.

A source told Us Weekly Wilson ‘checked the no visitation box in court’ after finding out he was Lyla’s father.

The insider adds: “He does not want to visit [and does not] want any custody of her.”

While a representative of Owen also tells the outlet: “This is a private matter and it’s not appropriate to comment further.”

However, Wilson has generously fulfilled his legal obligations towards his daughter.

According to reports, Owen pays $25,000 a month in child support for Lyla.

He also reportedly paid a one-off payment of $75,000 to Vongsvirates, in order to cover the cost of a night nurse, labour coach and her legal fees.

Vongsvirates posts photos of Lyla on Instagram, and many fans have taken to the comments and remarked on the fact that her daughter shares a resemblance to Wilson.

One fan writes: “Looks like her father, I would say it’s a shame how things turned out.

“But she has a super mum and I am sure she receives love in abundance.”

Another adds: “It’s truly a shame a man would leave such a beautiful girl. Disappointed in Owen.”

Although Wilson never acknowledged his daughter, he is a proud father when it comes to talking about his two sons.

During an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ show, Wilson joked about his sons not finding him funny.

Wilson says: “It’s unbelievable. I mean, anything Ford 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.”

He continues: “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.”
