Owen Wilson & His Baby Mama Have Split Already! How Sad!

Jade Duell only gave birth to Owen’s baby son Robert Ford five months ago!

The couple reportedly split because Owen Wilson wouldn’t commit! But they had a BABY together — that’s a massive commitment!

Owen wanted the freedom to do what he wanted with his friends, both male and female, while remaining a family unit with Jade and the baby,” a source tells the National Enquirer.

“But Jade wasn’t willing to go along with that, so Owen decided to end things with her instead of cheating behind her back.”

Owen, 42, shocked everyone when he announced he was going to be a dad just four days before air marshall Jade Duell gave birth in January — we didn’t even know they were dating!

But he seemed to embrace his newfound fatherhood, telling Access Hollywood after Robert was born, “I was never like somebody who was like, ‘Oh gosh, it’s a little baby! Let me hold it.”

“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… Their cries are like beautiful music!”

What a shame he didn’t share the same bond with Jade. Let’s hope the couple can keep things amicable for Robert’s sake.

What do you think, HollyMoms? Should they have stuck at it for Robert’s sake? Or is it kinder in the long run to split?
