Gary Owen, who recently had twins, is sharing candidly about his experience as a father despite his strained relationship with his oldest children.

"One's white, one's Black," he said. "One's got blue eyes...the other one [has] brown eyes."  

He continued, "The twins are awesome. They're in that idolizing dad phase."

Owen is also the dad to son Austin and daughter Kennedy with his ex-wife, Kenya Duke, whom he divorced in 2021. The comedian revealed that he has no relationship with Austin or Kennedy.

When asked by the host if he ever thought he'd become a dad again, Owen confessed, "It's two-fold."

"That's a layered question," he explained. "Didn't think I wanted to be a father again," he said while delving into the complex dynamic between his eldest kids.

"I didn't do it wrong the first time. I was very conscious about how I spoke to them, how we disciplined them, I never put them down," while adding, "I was the fun dad."

He also said, "It sucks too because my kids don't know them. They don't have a relationship with them," while adding, "I don't want them to meet when they're four or five."
