I think it's safe to say Owen Wilson has transitioned from playing the womanizing-stud type, as seen in such movies as The Wedding Crashers (2005) to more family roles. Let's face it, post-Marley & Me (2008), Wilson sailed into the realm of the movie-dad.
That being said, what is surprising is how in real life Wilson does not want to be a soccer-dad.
Here's the scoop...
Everyone thought Owen Wilson would be the perfect dad.
I mean I'm happy with my life but you know how cool it would be if Owen Wilson was your dad— HanSue (@HanSue)1511504407.0
Remember him in Marley & Me?
via: IMDbJennifer Aniston couldn't have asked for a better partner, in that movie Wilson proved he was total dad material.
So not a family man, then?
via: IMDbEven though Wilson has played many a role as the doting husband in real-life he has never been married.
So not the settling down type?
via: IMDbAlthough Wilson has had his fair share of love interests, the actor has never settled down. Wilson now has 3 children to 3 different women.
But he sees his kids, right?
Wilson's treatment towards his baby momma has angered a lot of people.Wilson was dating casually dating Varunie Vongsvirates for 5 years before they broke up. When Varunie told Wilson she was pregnant he refused to believe the child was his. The court papers which were seen by RadarOnline revealed how horrendously Wilson treated his ex.
Wilson clearly did not want the commitment of another child.After Varunie told Owen about the pregnancy he denied he could be the father and changed his number.
A bit of a resemblance?

What do the other Wilson's think?
via: Getty ImagesWilson's famous brothers have a different approach to fatherhood. The oldest brother, Andrew Wilson is divorced but still makes every effort to see his son, Joseph Obliamiwe Wilson (pictured). The youngest Wilson brother, Luke is yet to have any kids but revealed in an interview this year that it is something he wants badly. His other comments were very revealing, as to Owen's situation...
"I love my niece and my nephews."
via: Getty ImagesIn an interview with HollywoodLife given by Luke in January 2019, the actor acknowledges Owen's daughter. Luke discusses becoming a dad and says: "I definitely want to start a family. I love my niece and my nephews. And I know how much my dad loved being a father, that was one of the things that made him the most happy, so yeah, I’m 47, I’m ready for that. I need to get to work." So does Luke see his niece? From the court papers, we know Owen doesn't.
Maybe Owen prefers the company of a pet dog?
Owen demanded a DNA test.
via: IMDbAfter Lyla was born, her mother made every attempt to contact Owen and get him to come and see her. He reacted by requesting a DNA test.
Surprise, surprise, the test confirmed Lyla is Wilson's daughter.
Many Owen Wilson fans are canceling the actor.
via: TwitterHis treatment of his baby momma so far has been pretty terrible... the thing is though, it gets worse.
Lyla's mom has been throwing shade.
Fans can't believe Owen wants nothing to do with his daughter.
via: InstagramIn the court papers, Varunie Vongsvirates filed for sole parental rights. In earlier papers, Wilson had ticked the box requesting "none" under visitation rights. In his explanation, he wrote that he was "not certain if he is the parent." But despite now having had a DNA test that proves he is Lyla's dad he is still not interested in seeing her.
