He may be one of the greatest football players of all time, having won a treble with Liverpool and scoring almost 150 goals in the Premier League, however since retirement from the game, he and his family have raised questions among fans.
After a lot of guessing, we finally found out that it was Michael Owen rapping on The Masked Singer while dressed as a doughnut.
Now, his daughter Gemma has been showing off on Love Island’s eighth season. She is only 19 years old, but she says she wants to be worth a billion dollars. Her dad is there to help her with these plans…
Michael Owen Net Worth 2022
According to Idol Net Worth, Michael Owen has a net worth of $68 million (£54.4 million) as of 2022.
Owen lives in a huge Welsh mansion that cost £4 million and is where he proudly shows off his 2001 Ballon d’Or.
He and his now-wife, Louise Bonsall, bought the manor house right before their daughter Gemma was born.
A few decades later, Owen has told Gemma it’s okay for her to be on the addictive reality TV show Love Island, which is full of bikinis.
Michael Owen Early Life
Owen was the fourth child to be born to Jeanette and Terry Owen, and he was born in Chester, Cheshire. His father was a professional footballer in the past and played for several teams, including Chester City and Everton, among others.
Owen’s father first got him interested in football when he was seven years old and quickly recognized Michael as the most athletically talented member of the family. Owen was an Everton supporter as a child and attended Rector Drew Primary School in Hawarden, Flintshire, Wales. By the time he was ten years old, some of the most prominent scouts in the country were keeping an eye on his development as a football player.
Owen made the cut for the Under-11 team at Deeside Area Primary School when he was just eight years old. At the age of nine, he was the captain of the team, and by the time he turned 10, he had broken Ian Rush’s 20-year record for the same team by scoring 97 goals in a single season, which was an improvement of 25 goals over Rush’s record.
Since he was eight years old, Owen has played in all three seasons for the 11-year-olds, which allowed him to break Gary Speed’s record for most appearances in a season. Owen joined the young team of Mold Alexandra and played with the under-10s when he was just eight years old. This was made possible because a local physical education teacher named Howard Roberts was successful in convincing the league to allow an underage player.
Owen scored a goal in his first game for Mold Alexandra, which was a 2–0 victory over Bagillt, a local rival. In his debut season with Mold Alexandra, he finished the year with 34 goals scored in just 24 games played. Owen went on to attend Hawarden High School when he graduated from Deeside, where he was also a member of the school’s football squad.

Michael Owen Daughter
Gemma, who is only 19, is this year’s youngest Love Island contestant. She has a lot of followers on Instagram (70.7 thousand), and she also has a second account for horse riding.
Gemma is a global rider for Great Britain. She was part of the British team at the 2021 junior European dressage championships. This shows that her father isn’t the only athlete in the family. She has competed up to the inter I level and has won and placed well in several ponies and junior international matches in the UK and Europe.
Gemma told Horse and Hound about how much she loves horseback riding, “Sport has always been important to me and my family. My dad played football for a living. Since I was 11 years old, I’ve done dressage for Great Britain. I’ve been all over Europe to take part in big competitions in big arenas.”
Gemma is also a company owner. Earlier this year, she started her own swimwear company called OG Beachwear.
