Owen Wilson's daughter Lyla has allegedly spent another birthday without her actor father who is not present in her life.

Wilson's ex-girlfriend occasionally shares photos of their adorable daughter, including from her fourth birthday party — but there's one person missing from the celebrations. Varunie Vongsvirates, the mother of Wilson's only daughter, said in October 2021 that the actor is still not involved in her daughter's life years after she entered the world. 

Speaking to "Esquire" in 2021, the "Wedding Crashers" actor discussed raising his two sons and reflected on the joys of watching their "innocent and beautiful" childhood as an adult but made no mention of Lyla, who he has never met despite allegedly paying $25,000 a month in child support fees.

Why does Owen Wilson not see his daughter, Lyla Wilson?

Wilson has never met his daughter nor pursued a relationship with her and, allegedly, made the decision to be absent from her life before she was even born.

Wilson reportedly checked a 'no visitation' box months before Lyla was born and has never looked for custody of her.

According to Us Weekly, Wilson signed away his custody and visitation rights while his former girlfriend of five years was still pregnant. One of Wilson’s representatives addressed reports of Wilson relinquishing custody, saying, “This is a private matter and it’s not appropriate to comment further.”

Wilson reportedly knew about Vongsvirates's pregnancy "all along" and voluntarily took a paternity test in June 2018, while she was expecting, which confirmed he was the father of the child. 

Varunie Vongsvirates, the mother of Owen Wilson's daughter, raises Lyla alone.

Wilson and Vongsvirates dated casually for five years, but were first spotted together in 2014. In 2017, Vongsvirates walked the red carpet alongside Wilson for the "Father Figures" premiere. 

It was also reported that Wilson did not contact Vongsvirates during her pregnancy or after she gave birth. In 2019, Lyla mother criticized the actor for not visiting his daughter

"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," she said. Her Instagram is flooded with pictures of her, her loving friends and her adorable baby.

Owen Wilson's daughter, Lyla Aranya Wilson, was born in 2018.

In October 2018, their daughter, Lyla Aranya Wilson was brought into the world. Sources confirmed that Lyla Aranya Wilson is a spitting image of Wilson. “The baby looks just like Owen,” the source confirmed. “She has fair skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes.”

Her mother had one heartbreaking message to Wilson when asked about his lack of involvement in 2019. "You should see your daughter, she's incredible, you're really missing out. She looks just like you."

Owen Wilson has two other sons. 

Wilson has two sons and plays an active role in their lives. Wilson and his ex-girlfriend, Jade Duell, share a 12-year-old son named Robert Ford. He also is the father of Finn Wilson, 9, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend and personal trainer Caroline Lindqvist.

“Owen has been a great father to his two boys and has maintained a warm and close relationship with their mothers,” a source said of Wilson's parenting skills in 2018. Sources said that Wilson, “lives right around the corner” from Finn, “and comes by for a little bit of time each afternoon. He is planning to be a part of the baby’s life and providing financial support.”
