AceShowbiz - While Gary Owen has seemingly completely moved on from his broken marriage, not everyone is ready to see him happy with a new family. The comedian has been slammed online after news broke that he's expecting twins with his girlfriend.
Earlier this week, Gary's girlfriend announced her pregnancy via Instagram. In one of the pictures, the comedian posed with his girlfriend and a young girl, who both held a onesie each. The woman, meanwhile, held a small dog and a sign reading, "Owen twins take the field in July 2023."
In the second photo, the woman was seen wearing a ring on that finger, but it's not clear if it was an engagement or wedding ring. In the caption, the woman wrote, "Life recap over the past couple of months," adding a heart and a ring emoji.
Fans were shocked to learn that Gary is already building his new family amid his strained relationship with his older children. "Man... ain't no way I'm just gone be like welllllll lost my old family... let me start a new one," one person commented on the post re-shared by Gossip of the City Tea.
"He JUST got a divorce," a second user noted. A third person replied, "In my kevin heart voice DAMN!!!" Another shocked fan wrote, "Damn and already engaged with twins. Wasn't it only last year when they said they was divorcing to begin with?"
"If the old kids won't talk to 'em, make new ones. Congrats, G," someone sarcastically commented. Another added, "This man move faster than fart wind."
One person, however, seemed to defend Gary as saying, "I'm not seeing the problem? He's divorced. He's allowed to move on."
Gary filed for divorce from Kenya Duke in March 2021 after being married for almost two decades. They have two children together, a son named Austin and a daughter named Kennedy. In August 2022, the 48-year-old comic admitted on "The Breakfast Club", "I haven't talked to [his kids] in like a year and a half. They're mad because I left their mom."
