Owen, 52, and Varunie dated for five years, but he was not by her side when she gave birth.
Shortly after Lyla was born, a paternity test confirmed that the “Cars” actor was indeed the child’s father, according to multiple reports. Shortly after, Us Weekly claimed that Owen “checked the no-visit box” in court and wanted “no custody of her.”
While Varunie often posts pictures of Owen’s lookalike daughter, she never makes reference to the “Wedding Crashers” star.
“Happy 3rd birthday to my wild child! I love you so much !!!!” the proud mom captioned a sweet pic of Lyla on Oct 9.
In 2019, Varunie insisted that she had “begged” Owen to get involved in Lyla’s life, but he refused.
“He helps financially but that was never discussed,” she told the Daily Mail two years ago. “Lyla needs a father. It’s ironic [Owen] continues to have those father rolesâ¦ and he’s never met his own daughter. “
Interestingly, Owen also doesn’t have a hard time talking about his sons, Robert Ford, 10, and Finn, 7, both of whom have different mothers.
In 2017, he spoke to Ellen DeGeneres about fatherhood.
âIt’s amazing. I mean, everything Ford says is just, like, the funniest thing ever, and I can do and joke and it’s, like, crickets. none of those guys, âhe said. “I’m already seeing what they’re going to be like in their teenage years, where they’re going to sort of gang up on me.”
He’s also referred to the boys in numerous other interviews, and the paparazzi often capture Owen with them.
