Owen Wilson to become a dad again


Owen Wilson is to become a dad for a second time.

The 44-year-old actor is expecting a child with married Swedish-born ballerina Caroline Lindqvist (42).

Lindqvist filed for divorce from her husband, Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr Ritu Chopra, in May and is believed to have been living separately from her spouse for more than a year.

A source told National Enquirer magazine, "Caroline broke the news to Owen this past May, shortly after confirming that he was the father. A few days later she filed for divorce from her husband."

According to the publication, Wilson met Lindqvist not long after his split from actress Kate Hudson and his 2007 alleged suicide attempt.

Shortly after they met, the comic actor hired Lindqvist to be his personal trainer and their relationship became a romantic one.

The new issue of America's Star magazine reports the pair's romance only began after Lindqvist had left her husband, but although the surgeon was aware his wife had moved on the news of the baby has still come as a huge shock to him.

A source said, "Ritu was completely blindsided by the news of Caroline's pregnancy."

The Internship star has a two-year-old son, Robert, with his ex-girlfriend Jade Duell. They split just five months after the tot was born in January 2011.
