A representative for Owen Wilson has confirmed that the actor will be a father for the second time. The representative confirmed the pregnancy news to L.A. Times on Thursday, October 10. The representative, however, declined to say anything concerning the pregnancy.
Owen's baby mama Caroline Lindqvist and the "Midnight in Paris" star reportedly met for the first time several years ago after Caroline was hired as his personal fitness trainer. Caroline filed for divorce from her surgeon husband, Ritu Chopra, in May after separating for one year.
A source told Us Weekly that the "Wedding Crashers" star was committed to support Caroline during her pregnancy. "Owen is very involved with the pregnancy. He isn't in a relationship with Caroline, nor do they plan to be in one, but he is very supportive of everything. They see each other and talk often about what they want for the child. Owen is very open-minded about everything and has told Caroline he will do whatever he can," the source said.
According to a Star magazine report, Caroline's father-in-law Jadgish Chopra was "surprised" after learning that she carried Owen's child. "I am very surprised because I didn't know that she was pregnant with Owen Wilson's child. We welcomed Caroline into our home and she seemed very gracious and very nice. You want to like your son's wife and we tried very hard with Caroline," he said.
"Ritu and Caroline were on/off for the last year and had a few problems in their relationship, but he didn't tell us too much about what was going on. This will certainly hurt Ritu's feelings, but I don't think this will devastate him. He will definitely carry on regardless," he added.
