Owen Wilson’s girlfriend, Jade Duell, plans to birth their baby boy in the peace and quiet of their Hawaiian home. Is that a good idea? Vote!
Owen Wilson and his pregnant girlfriend, Jade Duell, are dissing the idea of a hospital delivery. The gorgeous gun-toting air marshal is currently awaiting the birth of their baby, a boy who is due any day now, in Owen’s $8 million house in Maui, Hawaii. “Jade and Owen were both on the same page when they decided to have the baby at home,” the insider tells Star magazine. “They wanted a calm, quiet, soothing atmosphere for their boy. It was very important to Owen that the birth be Zen-like, because now he’s all about tranquility being the key to a healthy life.”
After attempting suicide three years ago, it sounds like Owen has finally found peace with Jade. “Owen has a new lease on life,” a family friend tells the magazine. “He’s come all the way back from the depths of despair to being happier than he ever dreamed possible.” He’ so happy about impending fatherhood that he and Jade have already picked out their son’s name. “They seem to have settled on naming him Ford Linton Wilson,” the friend says. “They both like the name Ford and Jade’s dad’s name is Linton.” Isn’t it nice that they’re keeping a family tradition alive?
The source says it was love at first sight for the 42-year-old actor, who met Jade, 28, while en route from L.A. to Washington, D.C. where he was filming How Do You Know with Reese Witherspoon. “They talked all the way to D.C. — and by the time they landed, Owen said, it was like they’d known each other their whole lives. They exchanged numbers and emails and haven’t gone a day without talking since.” Jade even relocated from Virginia to Hawaii to be close to her new man! Aww!
The impending birth has really changed Owen’s priorities — he’s even considering leaving showbiz for good. “He’s cool with being a movie star, but he knows that he’s going to love being a dad,” the insider says. “And if everything else were to disappear, being Dad is good enough for him.”
