Is new dad Owen Wilson jealous of his baby son?

Hall Pass actor admits his newborn son Robert Ford is an up-all-night ‘scene stealer’

Owen Wilson says his six-week-old son is already stealing his actor-dad’s limelight-because he’s too cute!


Hall Pass actor Owen has admitted his son Robert Ford gets all the attention when he’s brought into a room, with his friends and family cooing over his cuteness.

“He’s not a wonderful conversationalist at this point, but he kind of doesn’t have to be, he’s so cute – he becomes a little scene stealer when he comes in the room,” the actor gushed to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show in the US.

“He’s like Steve McQueen in The Magnificent Seven, where he didn’t have a lot of dialogue. You just kind of gave him the camera and he was able to hold the screen,” joked Owen.

The new dad also admitted his Robert Ford is keeping him up all night, with himself and girlfriend, Jade Duell suffering the dreaded new parents sleep deprivation.

“What they say about newborns, about the parents not getting a lot of sleep? That’s true. You look at every place now as a potential nap place,” yawned Owen.
