Owen Wilson says he’s “very” excited about being a dad again.
The 44-year-old actor’s spokesperson confirmed rumors Monday he’s expecting a child with his former personal trainer Caroline Lindqvist.
According to Extra, Owen addressed the baby news himself while walking the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of his new movie Free Birds later in the day, saying “thank you” when congratulated by reporter Terri Seymour.
The actor also said he was “very” excited about the new addition, according to the celebrity journalist.
Co-star Woody Harrelson then whisked in to save the actor from the uncomfortable line of questioning.
“We’re mostly talking about his other child. which is Free Birds right now,” Woody said.
America’s Star magazine broke the baby news last week, reporting that Owen has known Caroline since 2003.
The fitness trainer is believed to have split from her husband, Dr. Ritu Chopra, in May. The divorce is not yet finalized, according to the tabloid.
Apparently the actor is not considering rekindling their romance.
“Owen plans on being fully involved, but has no intentions of settling down with Caroline, which is tearing her up,” a source said.
Owen is already father to his two-year-old son, Robert, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Jade Duell.
