Early Life And Career Information
Robert is the first son of Owen Wilson and Jade Duell; the couple kept the pregnancy a secret until four days before his birth. Jade, who is 15 years younger than Owen, met the illustrious actor on a flight from Los Angeles to Washington D.C., around 2010.
The couple began dating, conceiving their first child (Robert) in 2011 when Jade was 28 and Owen 43. Jade had a water birth and delivered her baby after 18 hours of labor with the help of a midwife at Owen’s oceanfront home in Maui, Hawaii.
Regrettably, their relationship was short-lived as his parents parted ways when he was just four months old due to his father’s inability to commit. Jade took their son with her and moved out of Owen’s home to be with her family in New York.
Robert has two younger half-siblings from his father’s relationships after his mother. His immediate younger sibling and brother Finn Lindqvist Wilson, born on January 30, 2014, is the son of his father’s on-and-off (now ex-girlfriend), Caroline Lindqvist. His second sibling, younger half-sister Layla Aranya Wilson born on October 9, 2018, is the daughter of another ex-girlfriend of his father, Varunie Vongsvirates. They were in a relationship for five years before going their separate ways.
Over the years, Varunie has revealed that Owen has refused to meet his daughter but sends money for her upkeep. It even slipped out that Owen refused to take responsibility for the child until he confirmed she was his with a DNA test. Owen has had a successful acting career but few successful relationships due to his unwillingness to commit. His three children from different women have made it hard for him and his children to truly connect as a family.
