Owen Wilson has still not met his only daughter Lyla, his ex-girlfriend Varunie Vongsvirates exclusively revealed to DailyMail.com.

Wedding Crashers actor Wilson, 52, has never had any contact with the child, according to Vongsvirates, though he does spend time with his two older children - Robert, 10, and Finn, seven - whom he had with different mothers.

Vongsvirates posted a photo of their child on social media to mark her third birthday on Saturday. The blue-eyed and blonde little girl looked just like her famous dad in the image.

'He has never met her unfortunately,' Vongsvirates told DailyMail.com on Monday.

No contact: Wedding Crashers actor Wilson has no involvement in his daughter's life although he does spend time with his two older children - Robert, 10, and Finn, seven - with different mothers; seen on October 2 hosting SNL

In the new image the little girl has on a beige top that reads, 'Love will win.' The caption said: 'Happy 3rd birthday to my wild child! I love you so much!!!!'

In 2019 Varunie told DailyMail.com that she has begged the 52-year-old actor to get involved in their daughter Lyla's life.

The 37-year-old told DailyMail.com that her former lover is 'not involved at all' with their little girl and has 'never' even met his youngest child.

'He helps financially but it’s never been about that,' she said at the time.

Questioned about this, she added: 'Lyla needs a father. It’s ironic how [Owen] keeps getting these father roles, he's playing a father in his new movie, and he's never met his own daughter.'

Wilson has played father Nate Pullman in 2017 movie Wonder. He will next co-star with Jennifer Lopez in Marry Me which comes out in February 2022.

Caroline was reportedly in the process of divorcing then-husband, plastic surgeon Ritu Chopra, when news of her pregnancy with Finn became public.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote his 2017 film Cars 3, Owen discussed parenting his first two children.

The proud father, who calls Robert by his middle name Ford, talked lovingly about how much little Finn idolizes his older brother.

'It's unbelievable. I mean, anything Ford says is just, like, the funniest thing ever, and I can make and joke and it's, like, crickets. It's like nothing from those guys.'

Owen said that 'I'm already sort of seeing how they're gonna be as teenagers, where they're gonna be sort of be ganging up on me.'

He said: 'We went to Sequoia National Park, and they have the biggest tree in the world. I'm like: "Guys, this is the biggest tree in the world," and Ford's like: "I've seen bigger."

'And I'm like: "Well, no, Ford, actually you haven't seen bigger. This is - this is the General Sherman tree. This is the biggest tree." And he's like: "If you say so."

'And I'm like: "No, it's not if I say so! There's the plaque right here!" And he's like: "I can't read."'
