It was bad enough for Jason Sudeikis when longtime love Olivia Wilde called off their engagement last year, but now that she’s hooked up with Harry Styles, Sudeikis is worried that the singer will start getting cozy with his kids, OK! has learned.
Wilde, 36, who shares son Otis, 6, and daughter Daisy, 4, with the Saturday Night Live vet, went public with her new romance when she and Styles, 26 — who she’s directing in the upcoming thriller Don’t Worry Darling — were spotted holding hands at his manager’s wedding on January 4.
The Ted Lasso star, 45, “is in a world of pain. He still loves Olivia deeply,” an insider exclusively tells OK!, adding that Sudeikis’ wishful that he can “win her back” somehow. “He’s hoping this thing with Harry is just a phase. So until Olivia proves that her new relationship is actually serious, Jason’s made it clear to her that Harry bonding with their children is strictly off-limits.” Maybe the father knows best?
Meanwhile, Wilde seems to be smitten with the musical artist. The duo are “in that happy stage and enjoying themselves,” a source previously told OK! about their budding romance.

However, Styles and Wilde are just taking their relationship one day at a time. “Olivia’s not looking for anything too serious at the moment,” the source said. “But she and Harry are having fun and looking forward to what the future holds.”
Ultimately, the comedian isn’t giving up on getting back together with Wilde down the line. “There is still a lot of love there, and he would like to have hope that maybe there’s a way for them to repair things. But what happens next remains to be seen,” an insider explained.
