Gary Owen’s Twins With Bri Johnson Do Not Have Any Relationship With Their Elder Siblings

Gary Owen hasn't had any contact with his other elder kids.

 Encino, CaliforniaThe 49-year-old comedian Gary Owen welcomed twins with his fiance, Brianna Johnson, on July 14, 2023.

Royal Blu Owen (5 lbs 8oz @ 10:57) was born two minutes early and four ounces heavier than his younger brother, Rome Bohdi Owen (5 lbs 4oz @ 10:59).

Johnson announced the arrival of her “little belly buddies,” Royal and Rome, with a series of heartwarming pictures.

The pair got engaged sometime between late 2022 and early 2023. We cannot determine the exact date as Owen’s fiance only broke the news of their engagement in February 2023, providing a several-month recap.

In the Club Shay Shay interview, the Daddy Day Care actor confirmed the news of his new twins. Owen also added that he wants to do things right.

Didn’t think I wanted to be a father again … not having a relationship with my [other] kids … you know …. I hate that thing of like ‘Imma do it right this time’ ’cause … I don’t think I did it wrong the first time.

– Gary Owen

Key Takeaways

  • Gary Owen and his kids’ estranged relationship is because of his ex-wife, Kenya Duke.
  • Owen has two step-kids.

The Reason Behind The Cold Relationship With Owen’s Other Kids

The Dotty & Soul actor was married to his ex-wife, Kenya Duke, for 13 years, from 2003 to 2021.

They welcomed three kids from their relationship: son Austin (b. November 27, 2000) and Kennedy (b. July 3, 2002).

Their divorce wasn’t an amicable one, as Kenya’s since-deleted post claimed that Gary was having an affair and did not provide any financial support.

Fighting back against those claims, Owen alleged that his ex-wife turned their kids against him.

Furthermore, on Shannon Sharpe’s podcast, the comedian shared that he hadn’t spoken to Austin and Kennedy for over three years.

Moreover, he expressed sadness that his new twins haven’t met their older siblings.

“I was very conscious of how I spoke to them, how we disciplined them…that I never put them down,” he said.

“All the sports and stuff they played, I was the fun dad…I wouldn’t say I did it wrong but it’s two fold…I think not having a relationship with my kids…it sucks too cause my kids, they don’t know them. They don’t have no relationship with them.”

Gary Owen

Among all these, one individual remains far away from the limelight. Yes, you guessed it right, Gary’s oldest son Emilio.

Emilio Owen Is Gary’s Adopted Son

When Gary and his ex-wife met in the early 2000s, Kenya already had Emilio Toliver (now Owen) from her previous relationship.

However, following his marriage to the Duke, the Ride Along actor adopted Emilio, 33, whom he considers his eldest.

Besides Emilio, Gary Has Another Step-Child

Gary also has a daughter, a step-one like Emilio, from his fiance, Brianna’s previous relationship.

Briana welcomed her daughter, Reign, in September 2012. Now, the comedian lives with his twins, fiance, and stepdaughter.

Now, the question remains, “Are we hearing wedding bells anytime soon?” We do not know, as the couple has not shared anything about their wedding.

It has been over a year since they got engaged, and it’s about time they shared their “I do’s.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

  • Gary’s ex-wife reportedly asked for $44k a month for a year in alimony.
