Actor Owen Wilson is a new father — but he doesn’t seem so proud of it.

The “Wedding Crashers” star, 49, reportedly opted out of a custody agreement with a woman he allegedly had a baby girl with. The baby girl, who was born last month and is named Lyla, is now his third child. But the actor reportedly wants nothing to do with her.

Despite Lyla being born in October, Wilson reportedly “refuses to meet his daughter,” a source told Us Weekly. “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.”

This is especially odd since the baby shares Wilson’s likeness, the source noted.

“The baby looks just like Owen,” the source continued. “She has fair skin, blonde hair and blue eyes.”

What’s more, although the two allegedly “dated for almost five years,” Wilson “has not contacted Varunie at all.”

He “knew all along that Varunie was pregnant. Owen was told when Varunie was four weeks pregnant,” the source went on.

Wilson did take a paternity test during Vongsvirates’ pregnancy, however. The results, according to court docs, say that “the alleged father is not excluded as the biological father of the fetus.” In other words, he’s probably the daddy.

Wilson is already the father of two sons, seven-year-old Robert, named after Owen’s father, and four-year-old Finn. The two boys are from different mothers as well.
