Olivia Wilde appears on the cover of Glamour magazine’s September issue, but it’s one of the photos inside that’s gaining attention. In the image, Wilde nurses her four-month-old son Otis.
For her, the picture represents a very important piece of her life. “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 tells the magazine. “Breastfeeding is the most natural thing. I don’t know, now it feels like Otis should always be on my breast.”
Still, even Wilde admits the photo isn’t really a proper representation of her everyday life, adding, “I mean, I certainly don’t really look like that when I’m [typically] breast-feeding. And there’s usually a diaper involved.”
Wilde welcomed Otis with her fiance, former “Saturday Night Live” star Jason Sudeikis, in April. When asked if she’s in a hurry to get married, Wilde replies, “In many ways, a child is more of a commitment. We are fully committed and really happy as a family. And there’s no definition of the ‘normal family’ anymore. 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.”
