Motherhood is glamorous, especially for new mom Olivia Wilde.
In the September issue of Glamour, new mom Olivia Wilde is shown breastfeeding her infant son, Otis Alexander Sudeikis. The glam photo features the 30-year-old actress breastfeeding her three-month-old son in a diner booth, wearing a stunning Roberto Cavalli dress and Prada heels.
Otis was born in April to Wilde and funnyman fiancé Jason Sudeikis. Since then, Wilde has been open to sharing her new experiences as a parent and how her life and identity as an actress have completely transformed.
"Being shot with Otis is so perfect because any portrait of me right now isn’t complete without my identity as a mother being a part of that. Breastfeeding is the most natural thing," explained the devoted mom.
When asked about the possible controversy behind the picture, she said "I don’t know. Now it feels like Otis should always be on my breast. It felt like we were capturing the multifaceted woman we’ve been discussing - that we know we can be. You can be someone who is at once maternal and professional and sexy and self-possessed."
Those fab pictures featured in the issue are not so parallel to her real life when it comes to being pulled together all the time.
"I certainly don’t really look like that when I’m breast-feeding." She went on, "And there’s usually a diaper involved."
The interview went on to discuss her work in the new HBO series with Martin Scorsese.
"The biggest thing I did to change my career was to act on the confidence that I had built and to say, ‘No, I don’t need to work to stay relevant. I’m just going to work on the things that are interesting.’ I developed the confidence to speak up in meetings with Martin Scorsese, fighting for a character that I believe in," she says.
With all the family life and work going on, Wilde mentioned plans for a wedding with fiancé of one year Jason Sudeikis.
"We’re engaged, but no specific plans yet - we just have to find the time to put it together. In many ways, a child is more of a commitment," she said. "We are fully committed and really happy as a family."
This will be Wilde’s second marriage.
She was previously married to ex-husband Tao Ruspoli, and the actress spoke about how her past makes her who she is today.
"[I] wouldn’t be this person without that first marriage. I really grew up with my first husband. Now I’m in a much wiser, more centered place in my life," she explained.
"I think if we can see people in our lives as chapters, we have a much healthier perspective about the whole thing. It’s like it had to happen the way it happened. Jason and I lived two blocks away from each other for years and never met."
Perhaps that wedding will happen in time for Baby Otis to walk down the aisle as ring bearer!
