Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde Call Off Engagement

By 2 weeks ago

Actors Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis have called off their 7-year-long engagement. They share children Otis Alexander, 6, and Daisy Josephine, 4, and a source says their children are the priority of their relationship now. "The split happened at the beginning of the year," the source confirmed. "It's been amicable and they’ve transitioned into a great co-parenting routine. The children are the priority and the heart of the family’s relationship."

The couple first started dating in 2011, and Sudeikis proposed soon after in 2012. "I met her at a finale party for SNL," Sudeikis told Stephen Colbert in 2017. “We hit it off that night. I actually came off looking a little cooler than I really am because I had heard through the grapevine, through mutual friends who weren’t exactly her best girlfriends, who would report back, ‘Oh you know, I think she’s dating someone,'" he explained. "So I didn’t make any moves. I was just very, very busy with other things. And next thing you know, I stopped being busy, she stopped dating someone, and then it was off to the races."

Wilde cast Sudeikis in her directorial debut, Booksmart, last year, and said it was the right thing to do. "He’s one of the best improvisers in the world so I knew I could cast him," she said. "He’s like spinning a top and just letting it roll. It’s really amazing to see him do his thing."
