Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde ended their seven-year engagement earlier this year. The ex-couple are living separate lives after they decided to call it quits.
Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde Are Good Co-Parents
Wilde and the Horrible Bosses actor had been in a relationship for almost 10 years before they split. Even though they have decided to part ways, the two remain amicable and are focusing on co-parenting their children. A source close to the couple reported–
“The split happened at the beginning of the year. 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.”
Wilde and Sudeikis share two children, son Otis Alexander, 6, and daughter Daisy Josephine, 4.
How Jason-Olivia Love Story Began
The duo first started dating in November 2011. The Saturday Night Live alum proposed to the Booksmart director after the holidays in 2012. Sudeikis told host Stephen Colbert on The Late Show in 2017, “I met her at a finale party for ‘SNL’.”
But though they “hit it off that night,” the actor said it wasn’t until Wilde broke up with her then-boyfriend that they started seeing each other. Sudeikis recalled–
“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’. 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.”
At the time, the two reintroduced themselves to each other and it worked.
Meanwhile, in an interview with Allure in 2013, Wilde shared that she actually found Sudeikis “so charming” during their first meeting. However, she recalled that he “didn’t even get my number” and that she didn’t think he would be interested in her.
“I thought, ‘He won’t be interested in me; I’m not a contender’. He was so cool, so funny — I was such a fan of his and had always fancied his speed and his intelligence. He’s a brilliant actor with a brain like lightning. I felt like fresh meat at the market. I thought, I’m not beautiful enough or his type.”

Despite going their separate ways, the duo looked quite friendly as they caught up by the side of the road. Olivia was quite animated as she chatted with her ex through her floral print Werkshop face mask.
The pair had their share of fights and disagreements like any normal couple would do. But the bicoastal lifestyles played a major role in the separation.
