Michael Owen Daughter
Michael Owen has spoken out about his daughter going on Love Island for the first time.
Love Island fans will know Gemma Owen has a very famous dad in the outside world in the form of football legend Michael Owen.
While she’s stayed pretty tight-lipped about her family, this week 19-year-old Gemma opened up about her dad for the first time on screen.
And now Michael, 42, has also broken his silence on his eldest daughter’s time in the villa, saying he’s found it ‘really hard’.
He told Cheshire Live: “From my point of view, it was really hard at the start because she went into isolation for two weeks and there was that not knowing how she was feeling and not knowing anything about it. Obviously, you get your phone taken off you.
“So it was really difficult as a family to not see her and not knowing how she was. But since she’s been in the show – and I’ve only watched a few episodes – she looks like she’s got a smile on her face.
“She looks like she’s happy so, as a father, that’s all I can ask for. She’s happy.”
This comes after Antigoni Buxton, who also has a famous parent, asked Gemma: “Sorry, excuse me if I’m being ignorant. But is your dad very, very well known, he played for England right?,” and she replied: “Yeah.”
Gemma owen breakup
Love Island stars Gemma Owen and Luca Bish have announced they have split up after just three months together.
The reality show’s runners-up revealed they had decided to go their “separate ways” following rumours earlier this week when they failed to show up to ITV’s Palooza event together.
Owen, the daughter of former footballer Michael Owen, told her followers she was not at the event due to a prior commitment, which was echoed by Bish on the red carpet.
On Wednesday evening, the 19-year-old announced their split on Instagram, writing: “I wanted to let you know that Luca and I are no longer in a relationship.
“It wasn’t an easy decision but ultimately this is what is best for us both right now.
“Many of you have been on this journey with us from the very beginning and I want to thank you for your continued support as we start new chapters.”
Bish shared his last photo of them as a couple on firework night, with the 23-year-old captioning it “experiencing another first with you”.
