Looking back! Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde welcomed two children before splitting in November 2020.
The former couple started dating in 2011 and got engaged two years later. Her son, Otis, and her daughter, Daisy, arrived in 2014 and 2016, respectively.
For the actor, he sees that “staying close” was the key to being a great father to his little ones. “Being present is a good quality,” the Saturday Night Live alum told Us Weekly in April 2018. “At least I’ll know how I screwed them up!”
He went on to joke about the sibling dynamic, telling us, “All Daisy wants to do is play, but playing with her is putting her toys in her mouth. So she gets very upset about it, understandably. When I explained to him that that’s Janet Jackson and Michael Jackson and that Janet Jackson is Michael’s little sister, he was like, ‘Oh, she could be useful!’ He recognizes that, which is good.”
The following year, Wilde spoke exclusively to us about taking working motherhood “day by day, step by step” so as not to get overwhelmed.
“I think it’s just biting into everything you can chew, you know, gradually and slowly,” the filmmaker explained in January 2019. “And I think [it’s] knowing what you’re getting into.”
The New York native added that with so much going on at home and on set, she and the Ted Lasso star had to “prioritize date night.” Wilde gushed at the time: “We went out and had a lot of fun. We were both very social when we met, and we didn’t want to give that up when we became parents, so we’re very consistent with the time we spend with them, but we also prioritize a couple of date nights a week. Let’s go to the theater. I love to eat, so we go to many restaurants, we see shows, music, it’s New York! It’s good to live here, live entertainment.”
In November of the following year, Us confirmed that Otis and Daisy’s parents had split, calling off their engagement. The exes “butted heads on many occasions,” a source exclusively told Us in January 2021. “There were arguments and fights about career decisions and where to live.”
The actress moved on with former One Direction member Harry Styles, going public with their relationship at her manager’s wedding in January 2021. This “devastated” Sudeikis, the source said.
