Owen Wilson made a deal to have baby with 'close friend'


Owen Wilson and personal trainer Caroline Lindqvist made a decision to have a baby together - even though they weren't in a relationship.

It was revealed earlier this month that the 44-year-old actor is expecting a child with his long-time friend Caroline, 41.

The Swedish-born beauty has now spoken about the pregnancy for the first time and has revealed she and Owen have never been in a committed relationship but both wanted to have a child so made a deal to do it together.

Caroline - who did briefly date Owen several years ago - told the Klick! supplement of Sweden's Aftonbladet newspaper: "Owen and I decided to have a child even though we're not in a relationship. And we're not planning on starting a relationship, either."

She also revealed she is six months pregnant, adding: "Owen and I are two close friends having a baby together. We are really looking forward to it and can't wait to welcome our child at the end of January."

Caroline also refuted claims she met 'The Internship' star when he hired her to be his personal trainer in Los Angeles, insisting he has never been one of her clients. She met him in 2007 shortly after his separation from Kate Hudson.

In the interview, Caroline also quashed rumours she cheated with Owen before filing for divorce from her husband, Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Ritu Chopra, in May. Their baby will be Owen's second child, after his ex-girlfriend Jade Duell gave birth to a son, Robert Ford Wilson, in 2011. The couple broke up five months later. Share your thoughts:
