Owen Wilson's daughter Lyla looks just like him in new photos posted by her mother Varunie Vongsvirates to celebrate the little girl's third birthday.
The business development representative shared a sweet picture of her child to her Instagram account on Sunday, October 10, that she captioned, "Happy 3rd birthday to my wild child! I love you so much!!!!"
In the photo, Lyla — wearing a straw hat — looks exactly like her actor father.
In November 2019, Vongsvirates opened up to the Daily Mail about Wilson's absence in Lyla's life. "Owen has never met Lyla. Never," his former flame admitted at the time. "He helps financially but it’s never been about that."
Vongsvirates explained that she finds it funny that the Wedding Crashers star can come off as such a nurturing parent onscreen but in real life, he was not been available for his daughter: "Lyla needs a father. It’s ironic how [Owen] keeps getting these father roles, he's playing a father in his new movie, and he's never met his own daughter."
The mother-of-one also made an impassioned plea to the 52-year-old, who took a paternity test that determined he was, in fact, Lyla's father: "You should see your daughter, she's incredible, you're really missing out. She looks just like you."
As OK! previously reported in 2018, after Lyla was born, Wilson — who has two sons with two other women — reportedly refused to meet his daughter.
A source told Us Weekly at the time, “He even checked the no visitation box in court in June … He does not want to visit and does not want any custody of her.”
The insider revealed that after his former girlfriend of five years found out that she was pregnant with his child, he had not “contacted Varunie at all.”
