Owen Wilson Proud Dad To Baby Boy

Owen Wilson is a father to baby Ford Little Fockers actor Owen Wilson has become a dad for the first time after his girlfriend Jade Duell gave birth to a baby boy.

The couple have called the new baby Ford Lynton Wilson. He weighed in at 6lb 13oz, after a water birth at the couple's home in Hawaii. They only announced the pregnancy a week ago so we imagine there won't be any Hello! magazine spreads to follow.

Jade and Owen have been together for just over year, having met on a plane. Jade, an armed federal air marshal, was said to have been in labour at their home for 18 hours.

A friend of the couple told reporters: 'They are both thrilled. Owen has been doing a celebratory hula dance. He has a beautiful boy and everyone is incredibly happy.'

The 42-year-old hit the headlines in 2007 when he attempted suicide after allegedly suffering depression after splitting from actress Kate Hudson.
