New Dad Owen Wilson: Father-Son Bond Is "Strange"

The actor admits he was never much of a baby person but says when it comes to your own child, "you really do have this bond"

Fatherhood seems to be agreeing with new daddy Owen Wilson -- and nobody is more surprised than the actor himself.

"I was never like somebody who was like, 'Oh gosh, it's a little baby! Let me hold it,'" Wilson told Access Hollywood.

But since his girlfriend, Jade Duell, gave birth to their son Robert last month, things have changed.

"They’re so fragile, but then when it is your own, all of a sudden you feel a lot more confident," the Hall Pass star revealed. "You really do have this bond, this real connection with this thing that a month ago wasn't even here… It is strange."

As for who the new baby looks like, Wilson's not sure he resembles either parent.

"I don't know if you can say," he explained. "Babies look a lot more like other babies than they ever do like their parents. That’s what I've begun to notice!"

What he does know is, as a new dad, he's surprised by the little things that bring him more joy than he could have ever imagined.

Smiles Wilson: "Their little cries are like beautiful music."
