Owen was never one for babies — until he laid eyes on his little man! Robert Ford has won his heart.
Owen Wilson became a first-time dad just last month when his son Robert Ford, was born to his girlfriend Jade Duell, 28. Now the comedy star, 42, is loving life as an adoring dad — even the not-so-fun parts: “Their cries are like beautiful music.” Wow, he’s been bitten by the baby love bug! And we love it.
“I was never like somebody who was like, ‘Oh gosh, it’s a little baby! Let me hold it,’” the Hall Pass star admits to Access Hollywood. “They’re so fragile, but then when it is your own, all of a sudden you feel a lot more confident. You really do have this bond, this real connection with this thing that a month ago wasn’t even here… It is strange.” Wow, it’s amazing to hear these words from Owen — so touching.
And the good thing is, he’s learned to be very gentle! “I haven’t dropped him yet,” he jokes. And although he’s had a month to decide who Robert looks like, Owen hasn’t a clue. “I don’t know if you can say,” he explains. “Babies look a lot more like other babies than they ever do like their parents. That’s what I’ve begun to notice!”
