Olivia Wilde breastfeeds son Otis in September issue of Glamour, talks marriage and new 'identity' as a mother

By Gina DiFalco,

Olivia Wilde is seen breastfeeding her son, Otis, in the September issue of Glamour magazine. Also in the issue, the actress talked about marrying her fiancé, Jason Sudeikis and her new identity as a mother.

Wilde gave birth to their first child in April and she got engaged to Sudeikis in January.

“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,” she said of her decision to capture that moment for the magazine.

“Breast-feeding is the most natural thing," she continued. "I don't know, now it feels like Otis should always be on my breast. It felt like we were capturing that 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. [But] I mean, I certainly don't really look like that when I'm [typically] breast-feeding. And there's usually a diaper involved."

As for any wedding plans, Wilde said there are none as of now but in many ways becoming parents is more of a “commitment” than marriage.

“We are fully committed and really happy as a family. And there's no definition of the 'normal family' anymore,” she said. “Kids today are growing up with so many different definitions of family. I guess what I'm saying is that I don't feel any pressure to do it. But I think it will be really fun."

When they do get married, it will be the second marriage for Wilde, 30. She previously married Tao Ruspoli when she was 19 years old and admits she wouldn’t be the person she is today without that experience.

“I really grew up with my first husband. Now I'm in a much wiser, more centered place in life,” she said.
