Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis ended their engagement after seven years, but the Hollywood stars aren’t letting their split get in the way of their family. The Don’t Worry Darling director and the Ted Lasso star are coparenting their two kids, Otis and Daisy, as seamlessly as possible.
Olivia and Jason first met in May 2011 while they both attended a Saturday Night Live wrap party to celebrate the comedy show’s season 36 finale. By November of that year, the Booksmart director and the Horrible Bosses star became an official pair.
The lovebirds kept their romance on the down-low, but after two years of dating, it was announced that Jason got down on one knee and asked for Olivia’s hand in marriage in January 2013, according to Us Weekly.
While fans patiently waited to watch the Tron: Legacy star and the We’re The Millers actor tie the knot, the couple revealed they were putting their plans on hold when they welcomed their first child, Otis, in 2014. Olivia and Jason then welcomed their daughter, Daisy, two years later in 2016.
During an interview with Porter in 2016, the SAG Award nominee opened up about their decision to pause their wedding. “Before you have a child, marriage is the ultimate commitment and promise to one another, and then once you have a child, it’s like, ‘Oh, we’re committed and promised already,'” she explained.
Olivia and Jason continued their engagement after becoming parents, but the longtime couple ultimately split in November 2020. At the time, People reported the exes actually called it quits “at the beginning” of the year. Despite the breakup, Olivia and Jason have remained “amicable” for their kids.
“They’ve transitioned into a great coparenting routine,” an insider told the outlet. “The children are the priority and the heart of the family’s relationship.” In fact, the former lovers still “see each other all the time.”
And even though the pair has moved on — Olivia has been dating singer Harry Styles, while Jason became involved with English model Keeley Hazell, Us Weekly reported — they still “adore each other and have nothing but the utmost respect for one another,” a source told Entertainment Tonight in January 2021. “They will continue to be each other’s biggest supporters, especially when it comes to parenting their children and their careers.”
In December 2021, Olvia revealed that she got both of her children’s names tattooed on her forearms. The sweet tributes to her kids were done by celebrity artist Dr. Woo. That same month, the Broadway actress shared how Otis and Daisy were adjusting to their parents’ demanding filming schedules and homeschooling at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in an interview with Vogue.
“It’s wonderful to have them become nomadic in the same way I’ve always been — to feel that whatever country we’re in, they have a routine and a community,” she said. “They’re best friends, and they have each other.”
Olivia went on to explain that the kids split their time between New York, Los Angeles and London, the latter of where Jason films his widely popular Apple TV series, Ted Lasso. In June 2021, the Golden Globe winner shared with GQ that he and his little ones returned to their home in Brooklyn, New York, after it underwent renovations for two years.
“The kids darted in,” he said. “Last time Daisy was in that house, she slept in a crib. So now she has a new big bed. It was hilarious. I walked up there after like 15 minutes and both rooms were a mess.”
