Owen Wilson's New Son Shares Name with Famous Outlaw

If Owen Wilson's new son lives up to his name, he's going to be raising quite a wild child.

The "Little Fockers" actor and girlfriend Jade Duell gave birth to Robert Ford Wilson last week in Hawaii, People confirmed. .

A rep told E! Online that the boy is named after the actor's father, but Baby Robert also coincidentally shares his name with the infamous American outlaw who killed gang leader Jesse James in 1882. Some reports online had erroneously announced the boy's name was Ford Linton.

Wilson hasn't spoken publicly about his first child yet-- news of his impending fatherhood didn't even come out until a week before the baby was born. The celebrity has been quietly dating Duell for about a year.

"Everyone is doing well," Wilson's rep told People.
