Owen Wilson is the latest Hollywood celebrity to join the soon-to-be-parent club. A representative for the actor confirmed to Us Weekly that Wilson and his girlfriend of more than a year, Jade Duell, are expecting their first child. Duell, who is “due any day,” is currently in Hawaii where she plans to give birth as naturally as possible.
This will be the first child for the 42-year-old “Little Fockers” star, and an insider told Us that Wilson is “very excited and involved with the pregnancy.” They added that he “has been doing research and learning as much as he can. He’s super into it and asks a lot of questions to make sure he knows what’s going on every step of the way.”
This news comes just hours after Marion Cotillard and her boyfriend of three years, Guillaume Canet , announced they are also expecting their first child. On Sunday, David and Victoria Beckham revealed that they are expecting their fourth child, and Natalie Portman made headlines in late December when she announced that she was newly engaged and pregnant.
After “Fockers,” Wilson’s next film to hit theaters is the screwball comedy “Hall Pass,” which co-stars Jason Sudeikis and is set to hit theaters February 25. He also reprises his voice-acting role as Lightning McQueen in “Cars 2,” out June 24, and is set to voice-act alongside his brother, Luke Wilson, in the animated comedy “Turkeys.”
